Synopsis (Goodreads)
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.

Meyer does it yet again – After falling in love with her writing style in Cinder, I was not disappointed when I got to Scarlet. I soon found myself getting closer and closer to the end without realising that I was doing it.

I love that each installment in this series is going to follow a different fairytale character, but is also going to include the characters from the previous books. I love meeting the new characters, and seeing them interact with the old characters {even if it isn’t until the end of the book}.

To put it simply, I am now invested wholly and completely in the Lunar Chronicles and I cannot wait to move onto the next books so that I can dive back into this world that Meyer has created for us.
