Giveaway: ARC of Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer

Release Date: 02/4/14
Source: ARC from Publisher
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends

Hello, friends! I hope y'all are anticipating the third Lunar Chronicles novel. It is by far my favorite of the series. The stakes are raised a lot, the plot threaded with several twists and turns, and Meyer handles the subplots and main plot quite well. Cress is a great heroine, and the romance between her and Thorne is as funny as it is sweet. Here's my review of this book, and get excited because I'm giving away my ARC! (International, ends 01/29).

Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer - Goodreads | Purchase

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.

  34. I'm getting ready to read book 2 and I love this series! Thanks so much for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  35. The Lunar Chronicles is actually one of those series I highly regret starting before the whole series is out. Because of this, I refuse to read book 2 until I have book 3 in my hands. Book 1 had so many twists and turns and left me with so many questions (which I love) that I cannot justify torturing myself with book 2 when book 3 is not here for me to read immediately after.
