The #1 New York Times Bestselling Series!
Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of Marissa Meyer's 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 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.

Overall, this isn't my favourite book in the series. It's a wonderful book but Cinder was a book that I couldn't put down from start to finish whereas Scarlet didn't give me that same feeling.Read Full Review of Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles) | See more reviews from Guardian
I loved how Meyer included Cinder's story in Scarlet and seamlessly blended the two plot lines along with some tidbits from Prince Kai. It felt like a sequel, but it felt fresh and new at times, thanks to the new plot of Scarlet and her grandmother's disappearance.Read Full Review of Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles)
... because Scarlet follows a new set of characters (for a while, anyway) it almost starts afresh and you're left with the usual drudgery. After the story gets going, the narrative flits between Cinder and Scarlet but even Cinder's story is active and reasonably fast-paced.Read Full Review of Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles)
As a whole I wasn’t all that more impressed with SCARLET than I was with CINDER and I don’t get why so many love it.Read Full Review of Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles)
Meyer has effortlessly reignited my enthusiasm for this series with Scarlet. Not only was Scarlet a farce to be reckoned with, the entire story had me eager for more from the very first page...Read Full Review of Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles)
...that ending was just incredible! I will absolutely read anything Meyer writes in the future, she has solidified a place amongst my favourite authors with these two books, and I am so excited for everything she will ever write.Read Full Review of Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles)
I can’t mention this series without mentioning how flawlessly Meyer has woven in romantic relationships, human/droid/computer friendships, girl/boy friendships, and girl/girl friendships. There are so many relationships in this series and I know we aren’t even close to the end of it.Read Full Review of Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles)
