Summary (by Goodreads)

Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair—or her guard. 

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army. 

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker—unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice. 

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.

I am SO EXCITED for this title because I have been hooked while reading Cinder and Scarlet.  I had a copy of Cinder as an ARC years ago but didn't get around to reading it and came across it just recently.  Since I started, I haven't been able to get the story out of my head! Thank god Scarlet had already been released and Cress was on its way!  Look out for my double header review of Cinder and Scarlet as well as my review of Cress soon!

Summary (by Goodreads)

Lord of the Flies meets The Ruins in this frightening novel written in the bestselling traditions of Stephen King and Scott Smith. 

Boy Scouts live by the motto “Be Prepared.” However, nothing can prepare this group of young boys and their scoutmaster for what they encounter on a small, deserted island, as they settle down for a weekend of campfires, merit badges, and survival lessons.

Everything changes when a haggard stranger in tattered clothing appears out of nowhere and collapses on the campers’ doorstep. Before the night is through, this stranger will end up infecting one of the troop’s own with a bioengineered horror that’s straight out of their worst nightmares. Now stranded on the island with no communication to the outside world, the troop learns to battle much more than the elements, as they are pitted against something nature never intended…and eventually each other.

Stuck on a deserted island with only your buddies to guide you and the survival skills you have learned through your weekly scout meetings....while a diseased madman is on the loose....can you say SCARY??  Sounds like my kind of book!  Look for my review shortly!

  1. I'm not a fan of the lunar chronicles ( I know I'm the only one) but Troop looks interesting.
