Bargain Ebook: Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer

Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer is currently $3.99, dropped from its usual $6.99. This is the lowest price the ebook has reached--I previously posted about it when it was $4.99. It's the second book in the series.

Book description:

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.
An NPR Best Book of 2013

Cinder: Book One of the Lunar Chronicles is $2.99 in ebook and is often at this price.

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles), the third book is $8.89 and has never been bargain discounted to my knowledge.

And for fans of the series, the cover of the fourth book, due out in early 2015, is up on most book sites now.

Fairest: The Lunar Chronicles: Levana's Story has a preorder ebook price of $9.99 and will be released January 27, 2015. That's a rather eerie cover and not my favorite. I still love the Cinder cover for so perfectly conveying the science fiction element of the novel. But fans of this series don't care if the book comes in a plain white cover as long as it just comes out!

Book description:

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?

Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never been told . . . until now.

Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes full-color art and an excerpt from Winter, the next book in the Lunar Chronicles series.


  1. Love this series! Can't wait for the next one.

  2. Love the series and the book covers. Glad to see that they're having a price cut.
