“This 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).
