The fates of Cinder and Scarlet collide as a Lunar threat spreads across the Earth...
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.

Another GREAT installment in the Lunar Chronicles. I really liked Cinder so I figured it was going to be hard to top it, but Scarlet definitely managed--and excelled. This book focused on the twist of Little Red Riding Hood and it did not disappoint. Meyer puts unique twists on already great fairytales and was able to keep me on my toes by the intense situations. There were times where I felt like I was biting my nails turning the pages to see what would happen next.
Not gonna lie Wolf, the main dude, is pretty damn hot. He’s a street fighter for one and that just makes him that much hotter for some reason. He’s not what you’d expect though for supposed "big bad wolf". He’s sweet and shy and justsodangadorableican’thandleit. Not to mention Captain Carswell Thorne, the American Pilot, who was pretty dreamy himself.
Cinder’s journey is continued in this book and that makes it even better since there’s no way you can’t be begging for more after the cliffhanger that Cinder leaves you with. To be honest, I was a little more interested in Cinder’s story even in this book since I was already attached to her. But both Scarlet's and Cinder's journeys were great.
I honestly can’t say enough about this series other than that it’s amazing and everyone should read this book along with the first. Definitely one of my top books of 2013 and highly recommended in every way. If you love the classic fairytales, then this book would be especially great for you.
This book is on shelves now!
