Cress is the third book in Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series. Cress is short for Crescent Moon. She’s the stand in for Rapunzel, and like her inspiration, is being held in isolation. This being a Science Fiction/Fantasy series, she’s not in a tower, she’s in a satellite, in polar orbit of Earth.
Scarlet is the second volume in Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series. She continues playing with the premise of a twisted familiar tale, basing Scarlet upon the story of Little Red Riding Hood.
I was drawn to read Cinder, by Marissa Meyer, because I loved the concept of reimagining the classic Cinderella fairy tale in a science fiction/fantasy realm. It’s the first book in the four volume Lunar Chronicles series.
