The #1 New York Times Bestselling Series!
For Marissa Meyer's second installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles, she imagines Little Red Riding Hood set in the distant future. And yes, there is a big, bad Wolf.
Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns. 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.

"As Meyer continues her Lunar Chronicles, lunar-born cyborg Cinder narrowly escapes from New Beijing prison. Simultaneously, halfway around the planet, a farm girl named Scarlet goes in search of her missing grandmother. Narrator Rebecca Soler maintains the rising tension levels through pacing and tone as the story lines weave together and the danger grows--not only on earth but also on a larger scale involving the Lunar Queen Levana's bid for power. Soler navigates the alternating story lines well, easily transitioning from a slightly robotic tone for Cinder and her android, Iko, to just a hint of a French accent in Scarlet and Wolf's tale, which reminds listeners that the majority of the story takes place in France.
