"You know, when I was a kid, I was tricked into thinking that princesses wore tiaras and hosted tea parties. Now that I've met a real princess, I must say, I'm kind of disappointed" - Carswell Thorne
"You can help me pick out a tiara when we're done saving the world" - CinderThe scene from the third book of the series started with the interaction in the Rampion spaceship among 4 people (Cinder, Thorne, Scarlet and Wolf) and one android named Iko with a suspected-faulty-personality. Wolf allowed Cinder to practice her Lunar gift on him and taught her in hand-to-hand combat.
When Cinder managed to communicate with the girl with the long hair who gave her information regarding Levana the Evil Queen, the whole crew decided to help rescue the girl from her confinement in a tiny satelite orbiting the Earth. The rescue plan didn't work out as they planned because the head thaumaturge Sybil Mira was waiting for them and set a trap, resulting in Cress and Thorne to fell to Earth in the satelite, Scarlet was kidnapped by Sybil Mira, and Wolf was critically injured. Cinder was forced to accept help from Jacin, the former pilot of Sybil who declared himself as "faithful to his Princess".
Cinder, Jacin and Wolf found themself in Farafrah, a small town in Africa where Lunar and Earthen lived in open harmony, to meet Dr.Erland. Meanwhile, Cress and Thorne (who was blind because of the satelite incident) must cross the terrifying Sahara Desert.
And where s Kai? This handsome Emperor of the Eastern Commonwealth found information regarding Cinder and now believed that She was actually doing something good by trying to find the missing Lunar Princess Selene. In the meantime, he believed that the only way to save the people of Earth is by agreeing to a marriage aliance with Luna and marry Levana.
Was Cinder going to stay calm and accept the love of her life marrying her evil aunt slash queen? Of course not! that was why she was going to kidnap Kai on his wedding day!
This is the best book of the series! yes, you read that right. THE BEST! Believe me, I've finished reading the whole series, and this book is still the best! I got this dreamy look and the euforic feeling several hours after reading this book, heheheee....
So, if you are my blog reader, you must knw that I am a big fan of action and fast pace in a novel. And trust me, this novel can offer you both! It is packed with action from the get go, till the end, which is also good in keeping the suspense running! I literally cannot put it down....oh, God...so good!
The characters are better developed in this book than the first two. It is really no surprise because this happens a lot with series book. Book one is a good warming up, book two usually sucks, and the book before the last book is usually the best. But, hey, this is just my own silly observation, by the way. But this series happens to fit the pattern. So, conclusion: THIS BOOK ROCKS!
I actually cannot say anything more because well, the plot: good.
Suspense: totally page-turning.
Sarkasm: sarcastic enough for me.
Humor: it cracked me up in several parts.
So what can I say? It is that good! Love it so much!
