Reviews

"A great choice for all ages, with strong appeal for both girls and boys, these novels will be read and enjoyed--repeatedly." --VOYA, starred review "It's another Marissa Meyer roller coaster ride, part science fiction/fantasy, part political machination with a hint of romance. Readers will be pushed into a horrific alternate universe where violence, especially mind manipulation and control, create ethical and life-threatening situations for both teens. With at least one more Lunar Chronicle to come, the suspense continues. And which fairy tale will Meyer morph next?" --Booklist, starred review "Returning fans of Meyer's Cinder will gladly sink their teeth into this ambitious, wholly satisfying sequel." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "The author has stepped up the intrigue and plot from the first novel, and readers will be eagerly awaiting the next." --School Library Journal "Further development of this futuristic world plus plenty of action, surprises, and a fast pace will keep readers invested in their journey." --The Horn Book "The sci-fi elements are stronger than the fairy-tale allusions this time out, but the story remains just as absorbing . . . Readers will be thrilled to discover that this steampunky fairy-tale/sci-fi mashup promises two more installments." --BCCB

Gr 9 Up-In the second title (2013) in Meyer's "The Lunar Chronicles," listeners are introduced to Scarlet Benoit, a teenager in rural France whose grandmother has been missing for over two weeks. She's certain that her grandmother has been kidnapped and will do anything to find her, even place her trust in the mysterious and dangerous street fighter Wolf. Meanwhile, Linh Cinder has escaped prison in New Beijing with the help of a roguish thief named Thorne and is evading authorities in a stolen spaceship while she decides what to do about the revelation that she is really Princess Selene, the true heir to the Lunar crown. Rebecca Soler gives another solid performance of the futuristic fairy tale series. Her youthful voice is well cast to narrate the concurrent stories of the two teenagers, seamlessly navigating between the story lines. She gives Scarlet's dialogue a slight accent, helping to distinguish her from Cinder, and voices supporting characters with their own nuances. Soler's narration succeeds in conveying the plot's building tension. She fully inhabits the passionate, headstrong, and determined Scarlet, while also expressing Cinder's struggles with the tempting powers her Lunar heritage make possible and her hesitancy to lead a revolt against evil Queen Levana. Fans of Cinder (2012, both Feiwel & Friends) will be completely satisfied as action and romance abound and the stakes are even higher in this installment. Listeners will be clamoring for the next two titles in the quartet.-Amanda Raklovits, Champaign Public Library, IL (c) Copyright 2013.
