REVIEW: Cress by Marissa Meyer

cress elenasquareeyesCress has been locked in her satellite for most of her life, it’s her own little world where she spies on Earth for Queen Levana. Soon Cress’s world gets a lot bigger when she makes contact with Cinder and her motley crew. Cress ends up on Earth in the desert with Thorne. Meanwhile Cinder, Iko and Wolf need help and Scarlet is all on her own. Cress needs to be brave as she’s suddenly in a world of adventure she’s only ever dreamed of.

As this is the third book in the series there may be some vague spoilers for the previous books Cinder and Scarlet but they will be kept to a minimum.

While Cress may be the titular character, that doesn’t mean all the characters you already know don’t have a lot happening with them. Cress is definitely an ensemble book and the finale features them all working together in a heist! I love heists a ridiculous amount and seeing how all these different characters who each have their own problems and differences work together to try and save the day was a joy. (more…)

Here’s the rules:

– Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader

Kai thrust his finger toward the blackened netscreen. “Cinder became a cyborg when she was eleven, after a freak hover accident. You think an eleven-year-old had a choice about anything?”

That was from 56% mark on my kindle book of Cress by Marissa Meyer.
