This one is AWESOME as all of Marissa Meyer's books are but my favorite in The Lunar Chronicles is Winter it is a great concision to the series!

The book was very long but I managed to get through it - this one went by faster than Winter, the fourth one.

Possibly my favourite book in this series so far. I'm not entirely sure why the Rapunzel character is named Cress, but that's a fairly trivial point and I may just be missing something. (Scarlet = Red Riding Hood, Cinder = Cinderella and Winter = Snow White were all much more obvious. I probably would have gone with Tress - though that wouldn't be short for Crescent Moon.)

I've really enjoyed the spins on fairy tales in a sci fi setting, and I appreciate how well Meyer is able to include the occasional twist that is both true to the fairy tale but actually surprising. In this novel, she continues to develop the story of Earth and Luna. The main characters from the earlier novel still play key roles so, with each book, we're essentially adding to the existing cast. In spite of that, the book doesn't feel overly crowded; there is enough space for all of the leads.

I wouldn't say Cress ends on a cliffhanger exactly, but it's very clearly setting us up for the next book, even introducing princess Winter (presumably the next lead character) and the guard who's in love with her. I look forward to finding out what happens.

This novel shows that even the timidest can be heroes, and never doubt your abilities.

Characters: 10/10
Plot: 10/10
Writing: 10/10
This new addition to the Lunar Chronicles introduces my OTP, so I’m unfairly biased towards it. It builds both individual character plotlines and the overall plotline in a good balance.

I loved this book and I definitely think that it was better than scarlet. I captured my attention immediately and kept it throughout the whole book. This series amazes me every time I read one of the book because of just how clever it is. The way that it perfectly intertwines fantasy and syfy is amazing and I love how there are little parallels between the stories and the tales they are based on all over the books. I think its just amazing. I cannot wait to read the next book!
