Stayed up late to finish this one and I would consider it well worth it. Just when you think the dream team has been assembled - and they're off to grab a new member in Cress (our Rapunzel figure) when disaster strikes and everyone ends up separated from each other. Mostly in pairs with the exception of poor Scarlet.

Cress, our new character, has spent the past seven years locked away in a Lunar satellite and when freed is tasked with working with a wounded Captain Thorne, on whom she has a crush. Meanwhile Cinder and the injured Wolf make their way to Africa and Scarlet has bigger problems as a Lunar prisoner. Meanwhile, of course, there is a royal wedding on the horizon.

There's a lot going on and it all goes by pretty quick. The final third of the book is when things really start to get going - and then end will really leave you clamoring for the next book!

Love this book!! I cant wait for winter! (coming out november 27 2015) GUESS WHAT!!!!!!!!!! A BOOK ABOUT QUEEN LEVANA IS COMING OUT IN JANUARY!!!!!!! IT'S CALLED FAIREST! please tell me how you feel about that:)

Cress sits in her isolated tower, floating in a spacepod, an observer to the whole world. Her ability to act is far from confined though, thanks to an expertise in computers that opens up new possibilities for her and for Cinder. As the latest fairytale to become incorporated, Cress' story receives the primary attention, with chapters from the point of view of other characters weaving in and out. Like the previous two, the author plays with the core aspects of Rapunzel's tale, altering them in very clever and modern ways. Her narrative genius only shines further when considering the incredible ways in which she combines these disparate tales, and the amount of planning this required. She sets things up well in advance, as is proved by Captain Thorne only now being revealed as part of Rapunzel's story. This unexpected yet pleasing twist, broadens his character and our understanding of him. As for Cress, we get to experience all her wonder and doubts once she sets foot outside of her cage into the world. In true fairytale fashion, Cress dreams of being saved by a prince, and because of her dream-filled nature she wonderfully rounds out a cast that is largely plagued by the hardships of life. Time is running out for them all though as the wedding day approaches, and Levana's sinister goals reach fruition. In this spellbinding third installment, Cinder and her allies must come up with a plan to stop her, all the while avoiding detection, capture and certain death. Things are never as easily solved as in a fairytale.

I love this series. I hope the winter book is as long as this one or longer. I couldn't put this book down, the rapunzel twist was as amazing as the other two, and I love how they're traveling through the world instead of just staying in one place. Really enjoyed it. Funny. Romantic. Adventurous. :D

This series was recommended to me by a friend of mine. The moment I started reading it I knew I loved it. The idea was so original and so new to me. I can't wait for the next book!

Another really good book in this series. The thing I don't like about this series is that Meyer is trying too hard to pair off/find a romantic partner for each character. I personally do not approve of Thorne and Cress having a romantic relationship. I always imagined Thorne as being in his twenties to thirties. And Cress is sixteen. I think that there is too much of an age gap for them to be in the aforementioned relationship together. Also there is a not so nice part where Luna's prisoner of war (not mentioning any names) is being tortured. A good ending, though.

“Captain?"
"Yeah?"
"Do you think it was destiny that brought us together?"
He squinted and, after a thoughtful moment, shook his head. "No. I'm pretty sure it was Cinder.”

"Pause one second. And be honest." Thorne held up a finger. "Are you having a mental breakdown right now?"
