Book 23 of 2016 is the third in the Lunar Chronicles, Cress by Marissa Meyer.
This is taken from the story of Rapunzel. When I say taken, I do mean that it starts there but goes off in the adventurous way that all the books in this series have.
The main series arc is rising to a crescendo with this third book of five. As they introduce a new character, the tension builds. I really like the characters. I like that they are not hopeless damsels in distress. I like that they fly spaceships and raid castles. I like that the prince charmings are supporting characters around these strong women.
Now I'm on to Fairest without hesitation.
Four space princesses out of five.
Should I read this? It's a fun series. I'd recommend you do.
What did I learn? Rapunzel is much more likeable than Disney would let us believe.
