Author: Marissa Meyer
Scarlet is the second installment of the "Lunar Chronicles." Despite the common fear that the second installment never lives up to the first, there was no sophomore slump here! Scarlet maintains the easy charm that made readers fall in love with Cinder. The book details the adventures of Cinder and introduces a new heroine named Scarlet (obviously). Scarlet spends the novel trying to escape the claws of a clan of genetically modified wolf creatures to save her grandmother. The novel has the cliche overnight overnight romance that always seems to appear in adventure tales, but what would readers do without that tantalizing sexual tension? Meyer works magic, once again, with this novel.
