Why Did I Pick It Up:
The previous two books, Cinder and Scarlet, were utterly brilliant, I couldn't NOT read this one ;) I recommend this series so much people have started telling me I've already told them about it.
Where do I start? At the end of the last book I actually wanted Cinder to end up with Captain Thorne. I actually liked his pompous attitude and jerkiness. However, at the start of this book we meet Cress, a poor girl locked in a satellite all alone doing whatever her-jerky-lunar-highness bids. Cress is totally fan-girling all over Throne. Which is funny, because he is a jerk and doesn't get it, or maybe doesn't care. I'm not giving anything away, this is all like the first chapter. There are two things I really love about Meyer's books: 1. Although they are all kinda the same thing, the stories are totally different and the characters are absolutely unique and so real. 2. I can't decide if these are love stories where they go on adventures or adventure stories where people fall in love (which is a good thing, the heavy-handed YA author is never my favorite).
I don't want to say anything bad. I guess what I don't like is that someone who is totally trusted turns on someone else (is that vague enough for you) - but, if I were totally honest, that is what makes stories good.
It ends. That is what is terrible about this. It is too short and it ends. When is Winter coming out? Not until Feburary 2015? I might die a sad fangirl death.
Who will love this book?
If you like to read, you'll like this. Okay, that isn't a good recommendation. If you've liked the first two, you'll like this. If you like YA Romance, you'll like this. If you like a fairy-tale retelling, you'll like this. Don't tell me if you don't like this - because then we can't be friends.
How much did I like it? 9.5/10 (too short)
Will I read more?
I'm counting down the days to Winter (this is not a Game of Thrones reference).
