Review : Cress by Marissa Meyer 

In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood who’s 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 handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher 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 world has.  (From: Goodreads)

“And I would like the rest of you to note Iko’s proper use of Captain when addressing me.  You could all stand to learn a thing or two from her.”

Here comes the third book of The Lunar Chronicles.  I was so excited to read this book since I guessed that Captain Thorne would take part in a huge part of the story, hopefully.  
And I guessed right.  Yeah!  In case you haven’t already known, I adore Cpt. Thorne.  

Things I Like About It 

– the interaction between Thorne and Cress 

Cress was a dreamer.  She dreamt of her knight in shiny armour coming rescue her.  Thorne was more of a…hmm…narcissist?  But not in a bad way.  I laughed at their interactions.

– Kai’s thinking pattern 

I can’t talk about his thinking pattern because it’ll probably spoil the book.  I just want to say that Kai thought exactly like me here.

Things I Dislike About It 

– Cress…

She was…so helplessly dreaming about romance all the time.

With that discovery, thoughts of Carswell Thorne began to infiltrate her every waking moment.  She dreamed of deep soul connections and passionate kisses and daring escapades.

Oh, god, help me!  What’s wrong with this girl?  She hadn’t even seen Thorne.  She’d only searched his info online!  Seriously?


I recommend this book to people who liked the first two books of TLC.  I’ve been told that this series would get better book by book.  However…my apology, I didn’t feel this way.  I’m kinda tired of the story, a little bit.

That’s all for my review of Cress by Marissa Meyer.  Have you read this book?  Let me know what you think!

Happy reading, have a nice weekend, and I’ll see you next time!  Bye 👋
