Synopsis:
Cinder is back and trying to break out of prison—even though she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive if she does—in this second installment from Marissa Meyer.

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.
Rating: 4.5/5

My Review:

Another amazing book in the Lunar Chronicles series!! I love Scarlet so much, both character and book. Scarlet picks up right where Cinder left off, and it's just as thrilling and exciting. The book is mainly told from Scarlet's perspective, and I really liked her as a character. She's strong, determined and fierce in her search for her grandmother. Just as Cinder was a fairytale retelling of Cinderella, Scarlet was a fairytale retelling as well, this time it was Little Red Riding Hood which was so amazing!!

You meet some new characters as well like Wolf and Throne, both characters that are very different but I loved them both. Wolf is very complex and mysterious, whereas Throne is very sarcastic and funny. You also got to see more of Cinder's story and how it all leads to all these characters meeting and coming together. I love the way Marissa Meyer connected things, and it just flowed and made the story continue to be this exciting adventure. I love the different kinds of relationships in this story. From a begrudging friendship between Cinder and Throne, to the love story of Scarlet and Wolf. All of which I loved.

I'm loving this series so much so far, I can't wait until I read the next book in the series, Cress. I'm trying to pace myself with this series, and try to read some books in between. But I don't know if I'm going to be able to wait too long, the series is that good!
