Waiting on Wednesday [7]


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer



Publisher: Feiwel and Friends (February 5, 2013)
Genre: YA, Science Fiction, Dystopia

Goodreads Summary

Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-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 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.

  9. I was drawn by the Red Riding Hood type cape and the character named Wolf but after reading the blurb I'm still not entirely sure if there's werewolves in it. Would you happen to know?

  10. I don't believe there are werewolves in it. I haven't read it yet, but based on the first book and the world that was created there (cyborgs and aliens) it was more characters having similarities to the counterparts in the fairy tale, but an entirely new take on it. I wouldn't be surprised if he had some sort of supernatural power of some sort, but I don't think there will be werewolves.

  15. So I only thought Cinder was okay but I am interested to see what happens next.

  16. Cinder does seem to be hit-or-miss for the readers. I think that what made me love it, may actually be what turns other readers off.
