Cress starts off where Scarlet left off. At the beginning I was disappointed that Meyer was bringing yet another character to the book. I really wanted more Cinder and Iko. How about Kai? But I was glad that Cress joined the team and I really loved Cress. Especially with Thorne. Swoon! I love all the romance in this series. There was plenty of action in this one. And Kai had a larger role in this one like I predicted after I read Scarlet. Again, the romance and the development of the characters makes this series so wonderful to me. And I loved how the story lines all tangled together. Especially since I see how things are going to start out in Winter. Oh, I can't wait.
If you haven't been reading this series (which I recommend to those who like YA sci fi and fairy tale reltellings), wait til Winter is released or close to it. It's so hard to end each book knowing it will be a year before the next book is in my hands!
