Description-

  • The #1 New York Times Bestselling Series!

    In this third book in Marissa Meyer's bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they're plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth.

    Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl trapped on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she's being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she's just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

    When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is splintered. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price than she'd ever expected. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai, especially the cyborg mechanic. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

    Starred review from December 9, 2013
    This third of four books in Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles has no shortage of humor, action, or romance, and the author still delivers the clever fairy-tale twists her readers expect. Cress, a self-proclaimed “damsel in distress,” has been imprisoned in an orbiting satellite for more than seven years, and has never been allowed to cut her hair, which has grown to Rapunzel-like lengths. Though Cress—an expert hacker—is supposed to be tracking down the fugitive Linh Cinder for Lunar Queen Levana, Cress has been secretly aiding her. When Cinder and her crew try to rescue Cress, the plan goes awry, leaving Cinder’s group scattered and fighting for survival. Meyer continues to show off her storytelling prowess, keeping readers engaged in a wide cast of characters while unfolding a layered plot that involves warring governments and a fast-spreading plague. The momentum Meyer built in the first two books continues to accelerate as the stakes grow higher for Cinder and her friends. The next installment cannot come fast enough. Ages 12–up.

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Rebecca Soler delivers a take-no-prisoners performance for the third title in the Lunar Chronicles. Soler's lilting yet edgy voice builds rapport between Lunar captive Cress and her dashing rescuer, Captain Carswell Thorne, all the while building their romance in this fairy-tale space opera. Listeners who aren't "Team Cress" within the first few chapters must be as heartless as Lunar Queen Levana, whose plans to take over Earth are seriously cramping the budding romance between Emperor Kai and fugitive Cinder. Soler's instinctive delivery of Meyer's humor makes the story an addictive listen. Cress and Thorne's repartee, along with the chatter of the fashion-obsessed droid Iko, are just a few of this audio's entertaining moments. Series fans and new listeners will be equally entranced.

    Gr 9 Up-In this third series installment (after Cinder and Scarlet), Scarlet and Wolf join Captain Thorne in Cinder's small group of allies determined to fight against Queen Levana. Earth is still reeling from the lunar queen's devastating attacks. Emperor Kai plans to wed Levana in an attempt to avoid war and gain access to an antidote for the deadly plague that has ravaged Earth for the last decade. Cinder enlists the help of Cress, the programmer/hacker who has been kept in a satellite for years to spy on Earth leaders for Levana, but who has also secretly been working against her. The attempt to rescue Cress ends with the group scattered and in peril, with precious little time before the royal wedding that would cement Queen Levana's hold on Earth. Rebecca Soler returns with another skilled performance, navigating multiple story lines in the fast-paced adventure while expertly distinguishing between characters with changes in pitch and accent. For Cress, the teen who has spent the majority of her life in seclusion, Soler injects a naive quality, effectively conveying her awe at new sights and experiences once she is out of her satellite. Her confidence grows throughout the narrative, and that is also reflected in her voice. Cinder continues to be the most compelling of the characters, and listeners will anxiously await the conclusion of this engaging series.-Amanda Raklovits, Champaign Public Library, IL
