Children of Virtue and Vengeance is Tomi Adeyemi’s follow-up to her breakout debut Children of Blood and Bone. It’s a captivating return to Orïsha, with Zélie, Amari and many of the other characters from her first book in the series.
Wilder Girls is the debut novel by Rory Power. If you are looking for a gripping novel you can’t put down until the very end when you just sit there in stunned silence thinking, “holy crap what the eff did I just read,” then Wilder Girls may be right for you.
Winter is the fourth and final book in Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series. Princess Winter is modeled after Snow White. She was introduced to us very briefly at the end of Cress, but Winter is featured heavily in this book. She joins forces with Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and the rest of the gang to take on the evil Queen Levana.
Cress is the third book in Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series. Cress is short for Crescent Moon. She’s the stand in for Rapunzel, and like her inspiration, is being held in isolation. This being a Science Fiction/Fantasy series, she’s not in a tower, she’s in a satellite, in polar orbit of Earth.
Scarlet is the second volume in Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series. She continues playing with the premise of a twisted familiar tale, basing Scarlet upon the story of Little Red Riding Hood.
I was drawn to read Cinder, by Marissa Meyer, because I loved the concept of reimagining the classic Cinderella fairy tale in a science fiction/fantasy realm. It’s the first book in the four volume Lunar Chronicles series.
