Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-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 and 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 has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own.
As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.

I’m not going to lie: When I heard that this book involved new characters, I sort of freaked out. I loved every single thing about Marissa Meyer’s first book, Cinder, and I wanted more more more. So, honestly, my first thought was, “NOOOoooOoOoOoooo I need know what happened to Cinder and Prince Kai!”
Erm, well, I was wrong. Marissa Meyer, I am sorry I doubted you! You are genius!
Cinder is there! Prince Kai is there! And the new characters? LOVE ‘EM! Wolf. Oh, Wolf! I lurve you.
Oh, goodness me, this series is fun. I think my friend Shanyn said something like, “I want to read this book forever,” and I have to agree. Meyer is a gifted storyteller and extremely skilled at putting smart, fresh twist on fairytales. I’ll never doubt her again!
I know this review is super early but I wanted to be sure you didn’t pull an Anna. No, sir, you should totally be preordering and psyching yourself up for one darn good book!
