Happy Wednesday everyone!
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. This week the book I’m trying to wait patiently for is Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, the second book in her Lunar Chronicles series.
Cinder is 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 and 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 has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own.
As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.
Cinder snuck up on me. When I started listening to the audiobook, I didn’t expect to enjoy the story and characters as much as I did. I really, really loved that book and I still think about it because I loved it that much! You can read my full review of Cinder here. So, as you can see I enjoyed the first book so much so I’m extra excited for Scarlet to continue the story!
So I have until February 5, 2013 to wait to find out what happens to Cinder and Prince Kai!
