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

I think I would - Rebecca Solar does voices and accents extremely well, especially for Scarlett.
Scarlett and Cinder are both such strong women protagonists. It really is refreshing.
This whole series is fantastic. Cinder started strong and Scarlett is even better. It takes the momentum from Cinder and carries the story into a larger stage. The whole series is unique. It has the elements of revolution and romance that have made the Hunger Games and the Selection so popular, but adds an element of technology and futurism that isn't present in other teen dystopian literature. The cast is also dominated by strong women characters, who have tech skills and strong character forged through difficulty and self-reliance.
Narrator kept dropping and picking up Scarlet's accent which was painful! Overall, I loved this sequel though, it ties in well to "Cinder" and to stories and details in "Stars Above". I loved the voice acting the best in "Winter", but the actual stories are all consistently great!
this is such a unique take on fairy tales. It is not anything like I expected it to be. It's a book that both male and female would enjoy whereas most stories about Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood are geared towards females, particularly little girls. this is definitely not a little girl story.
I love the smell of books in the morning
This series is really good. The story is very well written and so interesting. The reader does an amazing job of distinguishing the character voices. Overall this is a great second book!
Fun and captivating! Aweaome characters, mainly strong, round, interesting character. wonderdul story, though it has minor drops. All in all fantastic and highly recomended!
Definitely geared towards YA, especially female readers. Feels like Romeo and Juliet mixed in with a modernistic Snow White. I struggled with the whiny dialogue; characters' naivety seemed forced or overdone.
