The #1 New York Times Bestselling Series!

Cinder is back and trying to break out of prison―even though she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive if she does―in this second installment from Marissa Meyer.

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.

    this is the best book in the world because it shows you the different ways someone can be racist and that sometimes you need to see past the outside and look into the inside of a person.

          It was an amazing book that barley followed the story line of Red Riding Hood. My favorite part was the forbidden romance between two forbidden lovers (Wolf and Scarlet). Their adventure was also very good nad the friendship between Scarlet and Cinder is incredible.

            I love little red riding hood, again, its one of my all-time favorites. I've heard that this series is really good, though. But does anyone know which book comes first in the series? I thought that it was Scarlet but I'm not sure. Anyone who has read the series please tell me what order I should read them in. Also, is Stars Above important to the series?

                  It was really good, but not the best in the series. I still recommend it.

                      This book is a book that is a continuation of the last book that was cinder the cyborg. This adventure she is looking for her grandmother but the wolf in this story is just a man that was raised like a wolf and the wolf helps Scarlet try to find her grandmother and goes on a big and adventure that she will always remember for the rest of her life.
