Read the First Chapter of ‘Cress’ by Marissa Meyer
The Chronicles take traditional fairy tales and turn them upside down. The first novel, Cinder, focuses on a cyborg named Cinder with a mysterious past. The story takes place in New Beijing set against a sci-fi background. The second novel, is Scarlet, continues Cinder’s story but adds to new faces to the mix, Scarlet and Wolf. Each new novel introduces a new fairy tale character, Cress, introduces Rapunzel as a hacker.
In Cress, the 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.
This book will feature Cinder and Rapunzel and will take place in the Sahara Desert and releases in February 2014.
