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 tried reading this story before because I'd heard great things about it. I just couldn't get into it. but it was on sale on Audible so I gave it a shot and I'm enthralled.
This series is very enjoyable for teens or adults, a different twist on beloved fairytales. The author mixed little red riding hood and Cinderella comfortably keeping with a futuristic theme. I love it, and have read the series several times.
The story was so well woven together as you keep up with Cinder and get to know some other great characters.
I loved all the characters. I know it sounds a bit vapid to say that but its true. The depth that is woven into each person makes them so real and interesting.
I was introduced to Rebecca Soler with Cinder and she is AMAZING! her inflection, her character voices, her emotion, and every bit of the way she reads keeps you hanging on to every word.
Be prepared for the need to keep listening. I got through Cinder in a day and a half and blew through Scarlet almost as quickly. Fascinating.
it's a great story, so I was excited to keep it going, but this just didn't capture me like the first book. I do appreciate the fairy tale play, but the story felt forced and weak compared to the first.
This is a fantastic book for both adults and tweens. A nice twist on the standard fairytale. I started started reading it, but I much prefer this as an audio book. The narrator does a great job staying in character.
