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. 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.
As soon as I finished Cinder, I picked up Scarlet and once again I couldn’t put it down. Though I have to admit this one was a bit slower for me because I love Cinder. Even though I enjoyed all of the other characters, I just couldn’t wait to get back to Cinder and Thorne. Scarlet is amazing, but Cinder is just a bit better.
I am still blown away by the story and the writing. I am flying through these books and I’m pretty sure Marissa Meyer is going to be a new favorite author. I just want to read everything by her.
I can’t wait to get into Cress and continue on with this series. These books are so good.
