Waiting on Wednesday #16 – SCARLET by Marissa Meyer

Another Wednesday, another book. It’s my favorite day of the week! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Finally, the cover and release date have been revealed for the second book in The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, Scarlet:

Isn’t the cover beautiful? As many of you know, Cinder is high on my list of all-time favorite novels, so a release date for Scarlet is happy news, even if it’s next year. I’ve even added Scarlet to my new header, that’s how excited I am! Here’s the book description from Goodreads:

This book will feature Cinder and Little Red Riding Hood and will take place in France.

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.

The expected release date for Scarlet is February 5, 2013 (my birthday!). And I’m really glad Meyer is continuing to feature the character of Cinder in each of the four Lunar Chronicles, even though each book focuses on a different fairy tale character.

What are you waiting on this week?

    I just finished Cinder, this next one should be interesting. I got Daughter of Smoke and Bone today, I’m waiting on Before I Go To Sleep and The Hand That First Held Mine.

    Still have “Cinder” to read and based on whether I like that, I’ll be giving “Scarlet” a go.

    Beautiful cover, whatever happens.

  3. I am so excited for this one as well! I really enjoyed Cinder, and can’t wait to see what Marissa Meyer has in store for us next. I really think this one is going to be absolutely fantastic! <3
