The truth about Mara Dyer's dangerous and mysterious abilities continues to unravel in the New York Times bestselling sequel to the thrilling The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. Mara Dyer once believed she could run from her past.She can't. She used to think her problems were all in her head. They aren't. She couldn't imagine that after everything she's been through, the boy she loves would still be keeping secrets. She's wrong. In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next?

 

 

Spooky & creepy which I loved!  But Mara drove me crazy and I wanted a faster pace.  Still no clue what’s really happening!  Looking forward to book 3 though.

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She's trying to break out of prison--even though if she succeeds, she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit's grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother's whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.

 

This series gets better and better.  I loved the French setting and Scarlet’s feisty spirit.  The addition of Grandma and the Wolf was quirky and twisty.  Love!

In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

 

I loved Cress and her nerdy hacking skills.  And this book has a good dig at insta-love as Cress hilariously worships Captain Thorne.  Full of action and thrilling.

      I think Cress was my fav because I loved the humour in it and the interactions between Cress and Captain Thorne. I’m so excited about Winter, I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

      Yes I read Fairest with my book club and I normally hate novellas but I loved that one. Roll on Winter! 🙂

    great short twitteresque reviews! Love this feature and it’s good to see it again 🙂 I plan to read all of these books! I still have to start The Unbecomong of Mara though…next time I’m in the mood for something spooky;)
    btw yes I am working on a new graphic for dust off..if you want to help I would love to find the “books” or “classics” part I found a cool dust image to lay over the books and then we can put text over the top that says the title 🙂
