Victoria the next book is about red riding hood which is annoying cause cinder isnt going to be continued so u wont know the ending


message 2: by Dj (new)

Dj wow. that's some crap.

Lal Well it doesn't have to be like that. It can continue the fairy-tale theme, and switch main POV characters from Cinder to Scarlet and still continue the main plot of Cinder revolting against Levana and becoming the Lunar queen. For example: what if Scarlet's grandmother is the European lady who took care of Cinder when she was a little girl? Then book 2 would give a lot more details about Cinders past, when she first came to Earth. Book 4 is name Winter, after Levana's stepdaughter, who I'm pretty sure is supposed to be Snow White. So that one definitely continues both the plot and the fairy tale theme.

yeah! I started thinking like that after I saw that Cinder would still be in it. I misunderstood at first that just because there's a new fairytale/main character that Cinder would still be continuing her story and everything. The first part was me fangirling about Prince Kai and Cinder, but now I am knowledgeable. Lol. And ya, I never thought about the title of the fourth book. Winter. That's interesting.

G. Donald Cribbs I just learned there are Beauty and the Beast undertones in Book 2 via twitter. YayYayYayYayYay! I hoped she would work my favorite fairytale in there somewhere!

Ryan Wait so does that mean that the lunar chronicles are a combination of fairy-tales and scifi..
Does that mean Cinder was about Cinderella??

It looks to me tht red-riding hood might be like cinder?? Considering tht she was what she was (just saying tht so I don't ruin potential readers experience)

Basically yes. Cinder was about Cinderella, except that unlike in Cinderella where she needs the prince to become a princess Cinder is a princess on her own. Which I like, it's a win for the feminist movement. :D What do you mean Red-riding hood will be like Cinder?

Hermione I'm kinda skeptical, too. Hope she can pull it off with all the characters' stories AND Cinder's. I would hate for her to ruin such an amazing book with millions of other characters and millions of other conflicts. :P

P&K Before she started writing any of the books Marissa had the series pretty well planned out. Cinder is a main character in all the books, but each book introduces another female lead.

Hermione Right, I found that out on her website. But still, usually a book series has one main protagonist, and honestly, I've never read a book with two or three others with their own stories. I guess she could pull it off with POV switches.

I'm probably contemplating this because I've never read something like it before. xD Definitely a different, unique thing to look forward to.

Tracy I Hope we are Still alive by then

Meghan What? WHAT DO YOU MEAN 2013?! That is completly unnecessary. There's also 4 books which IS NOT a good sign
Well, considering Cinder was released in 2012, I think a book a year isn't that bad. And Marissa had all four books planned before she published Cinder, so you're in good hands. Honestly, four years is nothing for a series. Look at Harry Potter...or better yet, look at the Wheel of Time. Then try complaining about how long it will take.

ha! Yea I know, but it's no fun to be completely logical in these situations! I was just venting because I had just finished Cinder. I did the same thing with Cassandra Clare, then when it came out I waited to read it for 5 months because I was so swamped in school work. But hey, the release date is getting closer everyday.


message 17: by Caitlin (new)

Caitlin Basgall Ya and each of the other books come out in different years...so Scarlet is 2013, Cress 2014, and Winter 2015 :( I'm so upset!


message 18: by Eileen (new)

Eileen it says in the first book why her grandmother is missing...


message 19: by Charlie (new)

Charlie Chouinard I'm taking a Poll on my blog for who would cast as the best Scarlet here: http://charliebooks.blogspot.ca Because Movie rights for the Lunar Chronicles are in discussion! eg Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Brittney Snow, or Amy Adams.
