really liked it

(A tiny spoiler is mentioned but it's from the original fairytale anyway)

Really enjoyed this for the most part but i didn't really like Cress that much at first. I related a lot more to Cinder and Scarlet and I liked their points of view more than Cress. Cress also seemed a bit more naive and not as mature but that is mostly due to her living in isolation. But I really appreciate Marissa Meyer for including Thorne losing his eyesight and roaming a desert which is from the original Rapunzel story.

I mostly enjoyed Cinder's PoV but wished there had been more to Scarlet's PoV.

I also didn't really like how much Wolf was sulking in this book, particularly at the end.

I really like Thorne and sort of wish he didn't end up with Cress but I guess that's supposed to happen.

The plot I think was quite good. It seemed a little silly at first but once it gets going near the end it makes sense.

I hope in the last book there's more development in all the relationships because they all seem to happen rather quickly

But overall I did enjoy this book and can't wait to read the last book. : )
