Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair—or her guard. 

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, 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.(taken from


This book was just as good, if not better, than the first two. It definitely lived up to my expectations. I don’t think I have anything bad to say about it. I mean the characters could be stupid sometimes but it all turned out good in the end.

I liked the new characters that were introduced. Cress was great and her little romance she had going on was cute. Did anyone else think that Thorne was like 40 something? Maybe just me. Anyways. I also liked seeing Kai’s point of view. That was pretty cool. And I’m glad he’s now going to be involved in the revolution. I kind of liked having the multiple views going on. I liked knowing what was going on at each place. Also, I was really happy about Iko. I missed her. I jus love all the characters because they’re all so different from each other and from other books. It’s refreshing.

The story was great as always. There was lots of action and romance. You can’t be bored reading this book. I loved the Rapunzel aspects too. She does such a great job with her modern fairy tale parts. The ending was perfect for the next novel to start at. I was looking forward to a big battle scene in this book but, of course, it’s going to be in the next. I really can’t say much more about it. It was awesome. I loved it. I’m looking forward to Winter now.

“Do you think it was destiny that brought us together?”
He squinted and, after a thoughtful moment, shook his head. “No. I’m pretty sure it was Cinder.”
