Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
Release: February 5, 2013
Book two, Scarlet, is based on Little Red Riding Hood. It continues Cinder’s story as she attempts to escape Queen Levana’s vengeance and learn more about her past. The story also introduces readers to Scarlet, a girl living in southern France whose grandmother has mysteriously disappeared. In order to find her, Scarlet seeks the help of Wolf, a street fighter with more than a few mysteries of his own.After the way Cinder ended, I am ACHING for the sequel. Plus, Red Riding Hood is not a story that's often retold. It's usually the flashier fairy tales that get respun (i.e. Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty). So, yes, I eager to see how Scarlet's story intersects with Cinder's. It will be a long and AGONIZING wait until 2013.
