Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
Cress by Marissa Meyer
Publication Date: February 4th 2014
|Cress - Feiwel and Friends|
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.
Synopsis from goodreads.com
I've read the first two books in the Lunar Chronicles series in February. I loved the heroines, especially Scarlet from book two and wanted to know, what would happen next. So naturally, I was thrilled to see the cover and synopsis for book three and cannot wait to get my hands on Cress.
Rapunzel has been playing a small part in Scarlet already and I want to see her freed from Levana's clutches. But who pays the price for her freedom and will the three fairy tale girls be able to thwart the queen? I'm looking forward to return to the world of cyborgs and technology, meeting old and new characters in this fairy tale retelling.
Tell us in the comments, which books you are (not so patiently) waiting on this week.
