What happens when you mix science fiction, fairy tales, romance, and a compelling, fast-paced plot all in one book?  You get Cress, which is all of that and so much more.  Cress continues the stories of Cinder and Scarlet, the first two books in The Lunar Chronicles.
 
Cinder and Scarlet and their ragtag band of fugitives take their stolen spaceship to rescue Cress (think Rapunzel if she was locked up in an orbital satellite instead of a tower). Cress has the secrets they need to stop the Lunar Queen Levana, who plans to marry the young Emperor Kai (who Cinder might just still have a crush on, although she’d probably never admit it), then kill him and invade the rest of the Earth.
 
With a fast pace, plenty of action and a bit of romance, Cress will appeal to a lot more than just sci fi fans, although there’s plenty here for them as well: cyborgs, spaceships, and moon people with psychic powers, for example.  There’s only one downside – once you finish you’ll have to wait until next year to find out what happens in the next book.
