The Lunar Chronicles continue with Cress, a Rapunzel retelling of a sort. Cinder, Thorne, Wolf, and Scarlet attempt to rescue Cress from her satellite prison, and find a way to stop Queen Levana from becoming Empress of the Commonwealth. Naturally, things don't go as planned.
As has been the trend with the Lunar Chronicles, this third book is better than the one before. This is partly because more backstories are revealed, making the characters less of a stereotype and more multi-faceted and real.
The action is also well written, with several tense and exciting scenes. The plot itself is gripping, believable, and, at times, stirs the emotions.
I'm thoroughly enjoying this series and am glad that I continued with it, despite not being enthralled with the first book.
