About this author

I live in Tacoma, Washington, with my fiancé and our two cats. In addition to my slight obsession with books and writing, I'm big on road-tripping, wine-tasting, and hunting for antiques. I'm represented by Jill Grinberg.

CINDER, my debut novel, is a futuristic re-envisioning of Cinderella in which Cinder is a cyborg mechanic. Release date: 3 Jan 2012.

Blurb for Scarlet

The second book in The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer.

This is not the fairytale you remember. But it's one you won't forget.

SCARLET BENOIT'S grandmother is missing. The police have closed her case. The only person Scarlet can turn to is Wolf, a street fighter she does not trust, but they are drawn to each other.

Meanwhile, in New Beijing, Cinder will become the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive - when she breaks out of prison to stay one step ahead of vicious Queen Levana.

As Scarlet and Wolf expose one mystery, they encounter Cinder and a new one unravels. 

Together they must challenge the evil queen, who will stop at nothing to make Prince Kai her 
husband, her king, her prisoner . . .

***Red Riding Hood-meets-Percy Jackson in a thrilling new spin on Grimm by Marissa Meyer, the author of Cinder.***

Now for my review

My review:

I love, love, love this series.  It has enough of the fairy tales I recall to make me feel comfortable, it has enough new and fantastical ideas to keep me glued to the page.

Cinder, Scarlet and …well they are awesome characters, this book is mainly about Scarlet while Cinder plays a very important role in keeping the plot moving and making Red Rid… I mean Scarlet shine.  

Wolf is a complicated individual, not all good, not all evil and totally in love with Scarlet, however he is not in control of his own emotions let alone his own destiny.

So we come to meet a host of new characters, touch base with most of the old favourites and we are all looking forward to new adventures. NOW.  I already read book 3 and I am sooo ready for book 4!
