Name Those Authors!: February 7, 2013

Welcome to Name That Author!, a literary trivia game. We start by giving you a requirement, and you name authors who fit that requirement. When there's a prize at stake, randomly selected participants who submit correct answers win.

scarlet marissa meyerThis round of Name Those Authors! is sponsored by Scarlet by Marissa Meyer.

In Book Two of the New York Times-bestselling The Lunar Chronicles, Cinder is back and we are introduced to Scarlet. An inventive take on Little Red Riding Hood, get ready for romance, adventure, and high suspense!

Cinder is trying to break out of prison—even though she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive if she does.

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.
