Waiting on Wednesday: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we spotlight a book we just can't wait to get our hands on!

My pick this week is:

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3)
By Marissa Meyer
Hardcover, 560 pages
Expected Publishing date: February 4, 2014

(summary from Goodreads)

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.

The Lunar Chronicles have been blowing me away. Cinder took everything I knew about Cinderella and threw them away and Scarlet turned Red Riding Hood into a fearless girl hellbent on getting her grandmother back. So I know Cress will show Rapunzel in a new light and continue this epic journey the same way the others have. This series is not to be missed!
