The #1 New York Times Bestselling Series!

For Marissa Meyer's second installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles, she imagines Little Red Riding Hood set in the distant future. And yes, there is a big, bad Wolf.

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns. 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.

Praise for Scarlet

“Narrator Rebecca Soler maintains the rising tension levels through pacing and tone as the story lines weave together and the danger grows…Soler navigates the alternating story lines well, easily transitioning from a slightly robotic tone for Cinder and her android Iko, to just a hint of a French accent in Scarlet and Wolf's tale, which reminds listeners that the majority of the story takes place in France.” —AudioFile Magazine

“Rebecca Soler gives another solid performance of the futuristic fairy tale series. Her youthful voice is well cast to narrate the concurrent stories of the two teenagers, seamlessly navigating between the story lines…Fans of Cinder will be completely satisfied as action and romance abound and the stakes are even higher in this installment. Listeners will be clamoring for the next two titles in the quartet.” —School Library Journal

“Soler's narrations, both confident and well paced, flow effortlessly. She masters major characters' voices…Soler is also very effective at quick transitions between accents in dialogue-heavy scenes. The combination of Soler's superb performance and Meyer's captivating storytelling creates a pair of tour-de-force audiobooks.” —Horn Book Magazine
