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.

Mostly read business books and YA sci-fi fluff, but I love everything in between too.
Other reviewers complained about the narrator's voice but Soler's performance was brilliant. Her voice was charming, adorable, spirited, and at turns, foreboding and sinister. She created an environment I could sink into and make me forget I was listening to a book. I gulped up this title in one day because of her talent and because of the engaging plot line. After reading Cinder I was loath to start the second book fearing that I would not get to hear enough about my beloved Cinder and, and that I would not be interested in the new character, Scarlet. But my fears on both counts were unfounded. Cinder's tale continues to dominate in this second book and Scarlet is strong, brave, and lovable. Highly recommend.
Absolutely amazing! Once again I was captured and swaddled in a story that had me entranced, wanting more! Bravo! I am excited to hear the next book!
I had no problems with the addition of Wolf and Scarlet-it was another twist on an old favorite (little red riding hood and the wolf) while keeping up with our beloved Cinder. Fell in love with these two just as much as Cinder. And just towards the end of the book we see that Rapunzel is going to play a part in book 3 as Cress which is a fun mash up of different classic story characters.
I enjoyed the first book in the series.
The introduction of a new female lead character was interesting, though I didn't feel as though I got to know Scarlet as well as Cinder.
Rebecca Soler's performance was the worst thing about the audio book. Her French accent is terrible and inconsistent. I am going to read the third installment of the trilogy instead of listen.
I think this trilogy would make a great movie.
Rebecca Soler. I love her reading voice and how she brings all the characters to life.
She has a personality for every character and I love that. You know who is speaking.
This is a great series and Rebecca Soler is a great reader.
I stumbled onto the lunar chronicles from audible's suggestions. I'd never heard anything about it, but now I'm completely hooked. This is a MUST read!
