Cinder is a girl, and a cyborg mechanic. Here in the second installment of the Lunar Chronicles (a bestselling series), Cinder attempts to make a prison break, knowing she is about to become the most wanted fugitive in the Commonwealth!
On the other side of the globe, Scarlet Benoit finds her grandmother is missing, and in fact, there are quite a lot of things about her grandmother that Scarlet doesn't know.
Wolf, a street fighter, just may be able to lead Scarlet to her grandmother, but can he be trusted? Though mysterious and dangerous, Scarlet is inevitably drawn to him, just like he is to her. Together they untangle one secret after another, until they stumble on Cinder!
Now, these three must keep on their toes, for they face a common foe: the malevolent Lunar Queen Levana, who will destroy anyone in the way of making Prince Kai her King... and prisoner.
Marissa Meyer often jokes about the fact that she once worked at the Old Spaghetti Factory while earning her bachelor's degree in creative writing and children's literature. No stranger to humble beginnings, she worked her way up to earning a publishing degree, then worked as an editor, a typesetter, and a proofreader. This eventually lead to her first book deal for Cinder. Meyer says she has many manuscripts waiting to be published and that she loves the writers life. Her books all began as NaNoWriMo novels. She currently lives with her husband and three cats.

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.
