Waiting on Wednesday 63

November 27, 2013 Bookish 12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that allows readers to showcase eagerly awaited upcoming releases.

This week I’ve picked Cress by Marissa Meyer

  • Expected publication: February 6th 2014 by Penguin
  • Series: The Lunar Chronicles, Book 3
  • Genres: Science Fiction
  • Goodreads / The Book Depository

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.

I love this series. I think it’s clever that Meyer uses new characters in each instalment to show us more of her world and keep us interested, but doesn’t forget about the protagonists of the previous novels make appearances. I love Cinder, she’s so awesome, and of course, Prince Kai. And don’t get me started on the cuteness that is Scarlet and Wolf. As a Sailor Moon fan from way back, I love knowing that this series began as Sailor Moon fan-fiction and grew into something so awesome.

    I DIDN”T KNOW IT STARTED AS SAILOR MOON FANFICTION. That’s so cool. I need to reread Cinder and read Scarlet now I have it, but I already know I’m going to love this series. I can’t wait to get back to it 😀

    (and a quick mention that I cannot wait for the remake of the Sailor Moon anime that should be released soon)

      Yes, cannot wait for the rebooted SM. But they said 2013 and 2013 is almost over, and I can’t even …. *excited squeal*

      Read it, read it, read it.
