In the “The Lunar Chronicles”, we meet Little Red Riding Hood and the big bad Wolf, or Scarlet and… Wolf. Here, in a small town in France, we meet two people who Cinder does not even know she needs yet.
Scarlet has been living with her grandmother for most of her life, and recently her grandmother has been taken and no one believes her because everyone thinks that her grandmother is crazy and left of her own will. Scarlet knows better, she knows that her grandmother would not leave her on her own without telling her why. In town all people can talk about is a crazy cyborg girl who tried to assassinate the Prince…or the Queen… no one is exactly sure. When Scarlet almost starts a fight in a restaurant her family provides vegetables for, Wolf comes to her aid. Wolf is a known street fighter in these parts, and fights with a feral intensity. There’s something about him that Scarlet can’t get out of her head. It is with his help that they go on to try and find her Grandmother, but c’mon can Little Red Riding Hood ever trust the Wolf?
The second installment of “The Lunar Chronicles” was just as good as the first! I had a hard time putting the book down, or really my kindle app wherever I have it, my phone, tablet, computer. They way Marissa Meyer continues to put a twist on these classic fairytales is astounding, and I hope the third one is just as great. Until next time,
