It was a prison that came with an endlessly breathtaking view—vast blue oceans and swirling clouds and sunrises that set half the world on fire.

She would pretend that she was not on a satellite at all, but in a podship en route to the blue planet. Soon she would land and step out onto real dirt, feel real sunshine, smell real oxygen. She would stare at the continents for hours and hours, imagining what that must be like. Her view of Luna, however, was always to be avoided. Some days her satellite passed so close that the moon took up the entire view and she could make out the enormous glinting domes on its surface and the sparkling cities where the Lunars lived.

Praise for Cress : * "Meyer continues to show off her storytelling prowess, keeping readers engaged in a wide cast of characters while unfolding a layered plot that involves warring governments and a fast-spreading plague. The momentum Meyer built in the first two books continues to accelerate as the stakes grow higher for Cinder and her friends. The next installment cannot come fast enough." — Publishers Weekly , starred review "Once again, Meyer offers up a science fiction fantasy page-turner that salutes women’s intelligence and empowerment. . . . Old and new romances, unfinished story lines, and the prognostication of wartime horrors all pave the way for Meyer’s much anticipated next installment, Winter , expected in 2015." — Booklist Praise for Cinder : A New York Times Bestseller An Indie Next Kids’ Top Ten Title "Prince Charming among the cyborgs." — The Wall Street Journal * "Unfolds with the magic of a fairy tale and the breakneck excitement of dystopian fiction." — Publishers Weekly , starred review Praise for Scarlet : A New York Times Bestseller An Indie Next Kids’ Top Ten Title * "It’s another Marissa Meyer roller coaster ride, part science fiction/fantasy, part political machination with a hint of romance." — Booklist , starred review * "Returning fans of Meyer’s Cinder will gladly sink their teeth into this ambitious, wholly satisfying sequel. . . .
