Jackie's A Big Fan of This High Octane Series


Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She's trying to break out of prison--even though if she succeeds, she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit's grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother's whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.

Jackie says:
"Scarlet is Book 2 of The Lunar Chronicles (book one was Cinder), and a fantastic continuation of the fast paced narrative in these re-vamped and futuristic fairy tales.  This book introduces another gritty heroine, Scarlet, who is searching for her kidnapped grandmother.  Wolf, a stranger with a lot of secrets, joins her in her quest.  But for what reasons?  Cinder's adventure progresses as well, thanks to a pirate, starting with both of them breaking out of prison.  Eventually Cinder and Scarlet meet and join up, finally figuring out that they are both being pursued by Lunar Queen Levana.  Meyer's imagination offers her readers a wondrous and action filled break from reality. This is a high octane, can't-put-it-down kind of book that will leave you breathless for the next book in the series (coming in 2014)."
