Cinder, Scarlett, and Cress are the first three books in the young adult series, The Lunar Chronicles written by Marissa Meyer. I picked up the first book last year after a recommendation and it had far exceeded my expectations! I quickly read the second and third books which are equally amazing.
One thing I love about this series is the characters. I absolutely fell in love with each and every one of them. They have depth and heart. I generally care about what happens to them and that is a big deal when it comes to character development. If the people in a book do not interest me, I become uninterested no matter how good the plot is.
The Lunar Chronicles are loosely based on Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel. In the first book, you get to know Cinder who isn’t your average human. She is half cyborg and treated just as nasty as Cinderella was with her evil step mother. She becomes smitten with Prince Kai, but doesn’t want to reveal her true identity. It only gets more engaging from there, with space travel, werewolves, advanced technology, and a mysterious past.
I can not recommend this series enough! If you love fantasy, please pick this book up (and the others because I know you’ll love them)!
The forth and last book, “Winter”, will be coming out later this year. You can bet I will be first in line to pick it up!
This is a good deal!
