>>“Cress,” the third book of “The Lunar Chronicles,” was intriguing. Even  though I  had not  read  the first  two books, “Cinder” and “Scarlet,” I actually knew what was going on because the first two books were summarized in the beginning. Each book in the series offers a new take on a classic fairy tale, this one being “Rapunzel.” Cress, a girl who has been trapped on a satellite for about seven years, is known to be an excellent computer hacker, but she is being controlled by the much-hated Queen Levana. Cress reaches out to a group of fugitives, who come to her rescue. But when the rescue does not go as planned, the group must try and reunite with one another in order to achieve the common goal—to take out Queen Levana. I personally am not interested in science fiction and robotics, but this book has a good plot. If you are a fan of “Ender’s Game,” by Orson Scott Card, you should give this book a try.  The fourth book is set to release in 2015.
