Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-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 and 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 has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own.
As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.
Scarlet starts right up after Cinder ends. Just like with Cinder, I love the characters. I also loved the addition of Scarlet, Thorne, and Wolf. Scarlet is well kick-ass like Cinder. She is also sweet, intelligent, and not afraid to stand up for what she believes in and do anything to get there. Thorne is Cinder's traveling companion and he was really funny, arrogant, and clever. I just found him to be such a great character. Wolf is a strong and mysterious character. I kept on guess what type of character he would be and fell in love with him on the way. Cinder is just as amazing and Kai is swoon worthy. The plot is exciting and I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. There were main surprises on the way. The plot is really original and creative. Meyer's world continues to develop and I couldn't wait to find more about the world. Meyer's writing is amazing and I just can't wait for more in this series. I recommend this series if you enjoy fairy tale retelling or want a book with dynamic characters, exciting plot, and a fantastic world.
