5 Great Things about The Lunar Chronicles:

1) Fairy tale retellings. I'm a sucker for fairy tales and retellings, and I'm also a firm believer that anyone who can make a retelling unique and exciting in its own way is a downright amazing writer. Marissa Meyer, so far, has managed to bring three separate fairy tales in perfect sync while still keeping them unique and original. Who ever heard of cyborg Cinderella? Enough said.

2) Iko. She's an android with a personality remarkably humane that one would think of her as the best character, rather than an object or program. Her presence makes every situation one hundred times better. Who needs friends when you have a sassy android?

3) The tension and risks increase with each book. You thought Cinder was nerve-wracking? Well, then, put on your seatbelt, kids; it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

4) Romance is incorporated. All the relationships present are definitely different, as they should be, and they parallel the fairy tales in which they correspond. Sure, some couples are more likable than others, but I can assure you that that there is at least one couple for you to ship. (Side note: to those of you who are complaining about the romance, this is a series based on fairy tale retellings. And fairy tales are not fairy tales if there is not a knight in shining armor involved. Seriously, who ever heard of Cinderella without her prince (as stupid as the prince may be?).

5) It taps into your emotions. Have you seen the gifs used by other people to describe their thoughts after reading any book from the Lunar Chronicles? Yeah, that pretty much proves my point. But if you haven't, below are five good ones that I've seen.

If you have not read the first two book: CINDER and SCARLET, this review will contain spoilers. Also, it is best to read this series in order.

Cinder, Captain Thorne, Scarlet and Wolf (who are characters we met in Book #2) are on the run, from the authorities (who want to arrest them) and Queen Levana’s soldiers (who have orders to kill her, sort of). They realize their only hope of survival is to overthrow Queen Levana’s army. When they learn about Cress, they realize she is their best hope, she can give them the best chance of survival. The only problem is she is imprisoned on a satellite by the Lunars. The group of fugitives decide to rescue her. Unfortunately things don’t go quite as planned. Which means they have to change their plans.

Their new plan is not completely successful, and now Cinder is facing the possibility of war with the Lunars.

So lets just say at the end of this book, Queen Levana is super pissed and we meet the next fairy-tale character, Winter, an incredibly beautiful Lunar, one who doesn’t need Glamour, she is Queen Levana’s step-daughter.

The next book is due to be published November 10th 2015. I cannot wait.

This book continues the character development, the action continues, what I like it is there is pacing in the action, its not non-stop; there is romance, but it is not central and actually sweet, progressing gradually and subtly. And there are plot twists and a major cliff-hanger. LEt’s hope the next book is also not disappointing. ( )
