When I started Scarlet, the second book in the Lunar Chronicles Quartet, I had some trepidation. I am not a big fan of the story "Little Red Riding Hood" mostly because I am petrified of wolves but also because I feel that Red is too gullible and unwitting to make a proper story heroine.Well, I had nothing to worry about...the little red riding hood in Scarlet is a Red that the Katniss Everdeen generation can get behind. A heroine with drive, courage, and brains who dives into her adventure with Cinder right by her side. Not to mention by the end of this book I was in love with the Big Bad Wolf.
Androids, cyborgs and all of the fairy tale characters you know and love. Oh my! Meet Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles Quartet and a New York Times-bestselling author, when she comes to sign at Square Books, Jr. on February 14, 2013. I can't think of a better person to spend Valentines Day with than the person who makes some of the books I love best. JB
