CressBook - 2014 | First edition.
In this third book in Marissa Meyer's bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they're plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth.
Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl trapped on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she's being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she's just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.
When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is splintered. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price than she'd ever expected. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai, especially the cyborg mechanic. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

Wolf: "It's all right. You loved her. I would feel the same if someone wanted to erase Scarlet's identity and give it to Levana's army."
Scarlet stiffened, heat rushing into her cheeks. He certainly wasn't insinuating...
Iko: "Aaaaw, did Wolf just say that he loves Scarlet? That's so cute!"
Scarlet (cringing): "He did not--that wasn't--" (balls fists against sides) "Can we get back to these soldiers that are being rounded up please?"
Iko: "Is she blushing? She sounds like she's blushing."
Thorne: "She's blushing. Actually, Wolf is also looking a little flustered..."
"I promise I won't let you die without being kissed"
"But i'm dying now!'
"I will be the judge of when your dying now get up!"
"Hello?" A girl again. "I know you can hear me. I'm sorry my friend is such a wing nut. You can just ignore him."
"Cress trembled, nonsense words falling from her hopeless pleas. The man's sympathy and astonishment were gone, vanished as if they'd never been there. Perhaps they never had."
The cat has caught the bird... And she will scratch out your eyes too, You will NEVER see Rapunzel again
"Although. . . somehow, I always pictured the princess . . . I don't know. In a dress." -pg.541
Maybe there isn't such at thing as fate. Maybe it's just the opportunities we're given, and what we do with them.-pg.512
