Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) – Marissa Meyer
Title: Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3)
Author: Marissa Meyer
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Page length: 550 pages
Hot on the heels of the second installment of The Lunar Chronicles, I pounced on the third and devoured it in rapid speed.
Marissa Meyer knows how to reel you in and keep you glued to every page. I love all her characters, whether they are dark and twisted or heroic and understated. The romance is a slow burn that leaves you tingling and hopeful for actualization.
Cress continues the storyline of the heroes of this series and welcomes a new character that claims to be a damsel in distress but is really anything but. I loved every moment and could not put the book down. It is hard sometimes to keep readers interest (especially mine) with series. It is a true testament to the authors storytelling ability when you love the sequels as much as the first.
Meyer has earned physical book buying ownership from me, which means that I like her enough to actually give her space on my shelves (a rare event these days).
If you like genre blending and bending, fairytale twists that keep your heart throbbing with love struck hope then this series is for you.
You can find the series on Amazon in multiple formats.
