Scarlet by Marissa Meyers

“Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the 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 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, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.”

So I actually finished this book last week, but I was binge reading Cress and Winter so for whatever reason I couldn’t post a review. But now I am done with Winter and am a little free to write reviews!

Anyway, this book is the sequel to Cinder and introduces a completely new set of characters while keeping the old ones in. I absolutely loved Scarlet and her determination. Her attitude was great and I found myself connecting to her more and more.

The book switched between many different perspectives to help you keep up to date with what the others characters are doing while they are separated.

I love the fact that Marissa kept the stories close to the original fairytales but also made a futuristic twist to it.  The book was great and the romance was great as well and not really expected. The romance was not the main part of the book and really focused more on the plot.

I recommend this to middle schoolers or anyone that loved Cinder! It was a great read and I give it a 4 out of 5 stars. It was pretty slow at first, but once I got to the good point it really moved fast.

Until Next Time,
