The cover of Marissa Meyer’s Scarlet, the sequel to Cinder and the second book in the Lunar Chronicles quartet, has been revealed by USA Today. They’ve also got some scoop on the book, including an interview with Marissa and an excerpt from Scarlet, which is due out in early 2013.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
Marissa Meyer reimagined Cinderella as a teenage cyborg mechanic in her debut novel Cinder earlier this year, and with her new follow-up Scarlet, Little Red Riding Hood is a firebrand from France.
Cinder reappears in the next futuristic tweaking of a familiar fairy tale — as does Prince Kai, the evil lunar ruler Queen Levana, and a heap of intergalactic intrigue.
Read the rest at USA Today’s Book Buzz blog, and let us know what you think. (Personally, I’m excited, especially to find out what’s next for Cinder and Kai, ’cause that relationship cliffhanger was brutal, though in the best possible way.)
And if you haven’t already, do check out Marissa’s H&H post on princes worthy of a fairy tale for some insight into her favorite fictional princes and some reading recommendations to tide you over until Scarlet’s out.
