Waiting on Wednesday #11: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Posted January 30, 2013 by Debby in Uncategorized

This is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, spotlighting upcoming releases that we’re anticipating.

Title: Scarlet
Author: Marissa Meyer
Release Date: February 5th, 2013
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends (Macmillan)
Series: Lunar Chronicles (#2 of 4)
Pages: 452
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. Goodreads

I was so pleasantly surprised by Cinder, I can barely wait till Scarlet. Luckily the wait isn’t too long now. I’m a bit scared though, with the introduction of Scarlet and Wolf that the focus won’t be on Cinder and Kai as much anymore… Only one way to find out though!

    • Yeah, most people are just as in love with this one as the last one, so I’m guessing Scarlet will be a likeable character as well. Here’s to hoping! Thanks! 🙂

    • Yes! So creative… I can’t fathom what they’ll do with the Red Riding Hood fairytale to integrate it into the sci-fi world… Just can’t wait!

    • Ohhh you’re one of those lucky ones! I’m so jealous 😛 But yeah, I keep hearing great things, so I’m pretty sure I’ll like it 🙂 Thanks!

  1. Oh my goodness, I need this one RIGHT NOW! Cinder was such an outstanding story, and I can’t wait to see if this series continues to be as good. (I’ve heard brilliant things though!)

    • Yay! I feel the same, I can’t wait to see a sci-fi Little Red xD It’ll probably be just as imaginative, unique, and great as Cinder, if the ARC reviews are any indication.

  2. I still need to get to reading Cinder! I’ve heard nothing but amazing things, and apparently this one is awesome, too. I just think I’ll wait until this is released, as Cinder supposedly ends in a huge cliffhanger. Great pick, Debby!

    • Haha, yes! It really is a creative and original awesome story. I didn’t think the cliffhanger at the end of Cinder was too bad, it made sense and fit the story, but it might be nice indeed to just be able to power through both books 🙂 Thanks!
