Even in the future, there are damsels in distress…
Cress, having risked everything to warn Cinder of Queen Levana’s evil plan has a slight problem. She’s been imprisoned on a satellite since childhood and has only ever had 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 accomplice.
When a daring rescue of Cress involving Cinder, Captain Thorne, Scarley, and Wolf goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the wold has.
This book starts a few days after Scarlet ended and is a Rapunzel retelling while still having all of the previous characters in it so it’s like all of the fairytales come together. Anyways I am still really enjoying this series.
Lets talk about the newest character Cress first. At first she comes off a little stalkerish and weird which given her circumstances I kind of understand but the level of love she has for a character that she hadn’t met yet was just weird. She did grow on me though.
Then we have characters from previous books. Scarlet and Wolf which I still love but something happens in this book and Wolf is not himself and while I understand I felt like he was being kind of selfish in a sense. Then there’s Cinder and Kai which again I still love but Cinder really needs to stop going back and forth at this point. Her emotions are all over the place. I can’t really explain why she is bothering me and emotions doesn’t seem like the right word but whatever.
Then there’s Thorne and he’s still his same old self but I do wish he would open himself up and stop denying how he feels for a certain character. Also Iko!! between Iko and Thorne I got a few good laughs out of this book.
This book once again ends on a cliffhanger and since I don’t currently have Winter I am really annoyed. I want to find the book with the same covers I already have but so far I haven’t had any luck.
Overall still loving this series and I can’t wait to read the final book in this series. I hope everyone has a happy ending lol.
