Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer , 464 pages, read by Angie, on 02/09/2013

Cinder’s story picks up right where we left off. She is in prison waiting to be sent to Luna and her execution, but not for long. She quickly escapes with another prisoner, steals a ship and takes off. She is determined to learn more about herself and her connection to Luna, which leads her to Scarlet. Cinderella has been joined by Little Red Riding Hood (wearing a red hoody of course). Scarlet lives on a farm in France with her grand-mere. Grand-mere has been kidnapped and Scarlet is determined to get her back. She meets Wolf who claims to help her, but truly knows more than he is letting on.

I love this series. It is becoming one of my favorites and I can’t wait to read the next installment. Meyer does a fantastic job combining the fairy tales with her futuristic society. I love that we learn more about Luna in this book and what they are planning for Earth. Meyer has truly created a fascinating cast of characters and a story that draws the reader in.
