Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Scarlet, the second book in the Lunar Chronicles series, picks up immediately where Cinder ended. Cinder Linh is in prison, armed with the secret knowledge that she is the long-lost Lunar Princess Selene, and that Lunar Queen Levana will do anything to get rid of her and her claim to the throne. She breaks out with a fellow prisoner, and they use his hidden spaceship to escape and figure out their next move.

Meanwhile, Scarlet Benoit is barely holding on. Her grandmother has disappeared, the police are no help, and she is trying to run her grandmother's farm and figure out how to find her. Enter Wolf, a street fighter who has a distinctive tattoo and might know more than he's saying.

Meyer’s plot is intricate and elaborate as she leaps between Cinder’s and Scarlet’s narratives, all the while anticipating their eventual intersection. Each scene is filled with precision and rising tension, taking readers on another mesmerizing journey. The third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cress, is scheduled for release in 2014.
