Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoitâ€™s grandmother is missing. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmotherâ€™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.
