Scarlet, the second book in the series, will sate fans' appetites for more. Scarlet and Wolf, a street fighter and her reluctant bodyguard, go on a mission to find Scarlet's grandmother, while Cinder's story picks up where the first book ended, with her escape from prison. The secrets and motivations that bring their stories together are unpredictable and prompt more questions than answers. I can't wait for the next book!”

Cinder is back and trying to break out of prison--even though she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive if she does--in this second installment from Marissa Meyer.

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.

The adventure continues in this fresh fairytale retelling that combines elements of Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood.
