Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the 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.

Read from the Book

One     Scarlet was descending toward the alley behind the Rieux Tavern when her portscreen chimed from the passenger seat, followed by an automated voice: “ Comm received for Mademoiselle Scarlet Benoit from the Toulouse Law Enforcement Department of Missing Persons. ” Heart jumping, she swerved just in time to keep the ship’s starboard side from skidding against the stone wall, and threw down the brakes before reaching a complete stop. Scarlet killed the engine, already grabbing for the discarded portscreen. Its pale blue light glinted off the cockpit’s controls. They’d found something. The Toulouse police must have found something. “Accept!” she yelled, practically choking the port in her fingers. She expected a vidlink from the detective assigned to her grandmother’s case, but all she got was a stream of unembellished text. 28 AUG 126 T.E. RE: CASE ID #AIG00155819, FILED ON 11 AUG 126 T.E.

Editorial Reviews

"A great choice for all ages, with strong appeal for both girls and boys, these novels will be read and enjoyed-repeatedly." -- VOYA, starred review

Starred ReviewBooklist, December 15th issue:

"It's another Marissa Meyer roller coaster ride, part science fiction/fantasy, part political machination with a hint of romance. Readers will be pushed into a horrific alternate universe where violence, especially mind manipulation and control, create ethical and life-threatening situations for both teens. With at least one more Lunar Chronicle to come, the suspense continues. And which fairy tale will Meyer morph next?" - Booklist, starred review

"Returning fans of Meyer's Cinder will gladly sink their teeth into this ambitious, wholly satisfying sequel. " - Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The author has stepped up the intrigue and plot from the first novel, and readers will be eagerly awaiting the next." -- School Library Journal

 "Further development of this futuristic world plus plenty of action, surprises, and a fast pace will keep readers invested in their journey." -- The Horn Book

 "The sci-fi elements are stronger than the fairy-tale allusions this time out, but the story remains just as absorbing . . . Readers will be thrilled to discover that this steampunky fairy-tale/sci-fi mashup promises two more installments." --BCCB
