I've been addicted to Marissa Meyer's dystopian fairy tales since I first laid eyes on Cinder (in some cases you really can judge a book by the cover!) Now with Cress, Meyer continues Cinder's and Scarlet's stories and adds another—her fractured version of Rapunzel. Cress is an expert hacker and has been trapped in a satellite orbiting Earth and her native Lunar since she was a little girl. Now she is a teenager and ready to break free by whatever means necessary. She is the Damsel in Distress, now where is her Prince Charming? I couldn't put this down and, even though it is a hefty 500-odd pages, I wanted it to just keep going! Winter can't come fast enough!— Lauren's Staff Picks
Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together they're plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.
Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker; unfortunately, she's just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.
When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.
