Cress is the third book in the Lunar Chronicles. Cinder , the main character, is continuing to fight the evil lunar queen, Lavana, with her team. Scarlet, Wolf, Thorne, Iko (the robot) are the members of her team so far along with their newest member, Cress. Cress is a lunar shell which means she can not manipulate people unlike the other lunars. She was exiled from the moon and send in orbit around Earth. She worked for Lavana unwillingly as a hacker that hid lunar spaceships from Earth's view. Cinder and her team came to rescue Cress but it was a disaster. Queen Levana's right hand woman , Sybil, injured the whole team, took Scarlet, and sent Thorne and Cress tumbling to earth. The book continues with Thorne and Cress trying to survive in the desert and Cinder trying to figure out how to stop Queen Levana's plans and save all of her friends.
