Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—In this third series installment (after Cinder and Scarlet), Scarlet and Wolf join Captain Thorne in Cinder's small group of allies determined to fight against Queen Levana. Earth is still reeling from the lunar queen's devastating attacks. Emperor Kai plans to wed Levana in an attempt to avoid war and gain access to an antidote for the deadly plague that has ravaged Earth for the last decade. Cinder enlists the help of Cress, the programmer/hacker who has been kept in a satellite for years to spy on Earth leaders for Levana, but who has also secretly been working against her. The attempt to rescue Cress ends with the group scattered and in peril, with precious little time before the royal wedding that would cement Queen Levana's hold on Earth. Rebecca Soler returns with another skilled performance, navigating multiple story lines in the fast-paced adventure while expertly distinguishing between characters with changes in pitch and accent. For Cress, the teen who has spent the majority of her life in seclusion, Soler injects a naïve quality, effectively conveying her awe at new sights and experiences once she is out of her satellite. Her confidence grows throughout the narrative, and that is also reflected in her voice. Cinder continues to be the most compelling of the characters, and listeners will anxiously await the conclusion of this engaging series.—Amanda Raklovits, Champaign Public Library, IL

From Booklist

As the Lunar Chronicles continue, we meet Cress, with Rapunzel-like hair, who is trapped in an orbiting satellite. For seven long years, she has provided intelligence and security for the Lunar Queen, Lavana. Her latest assignment is to search for Cinder, the escaped cyborg mechanic who crashed Emperor Kai’s ball and won his heart in spite of his announced betrothal to Lavana. Emperor Kai hopes his ultimate sacrifice—the marriage—will ensure peace between Earth and Luna. In this third book in Meyer’s fractured fairy tale series, Cinder, Scarlet, Wolf, and Cress team up to stop the emperor’s wedding, preventing Lavana from becoming Earth’s queen and thus destroying it. Once again, Meyer offers up a science fiction fantasy page-turner that salutes women’s intelligence and empowerment, with a subtle warning of the perils of misusing that power. Old and new romances, unfinished story lines, and the prognostication of wartime horrors all pave the way for Meyer’s much anticipated next installment, Winter, expected in 2015. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The previous titles in the Lunar Chronicles series were both New York Times best-sellers; with a major marketing campaign pushing Cress, expect similar results here. Grades 7-10. --Frances Bradburn
