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.
Oh wow. Scarlet was great! I think I actually liked it better than Cinder. I love the new characters that were introduced and how Cinder fit in with all of them. There wasn't too much of Kai, but I honestly didn't mind that. IKO!!!! She's ok! Well, sort of. I am so glad she was apart of this book. I love her.
I hope that we see a little bit more of Scarlet's heritage in the next book (trying not to give anything away) and how it possibly effects her. She and Wolf created such a great bond. They were written perfectly for each other and I look forward to seeing their relationship grow in the next book.
I would highly recommend this book, even if you weren't a huge fan of Cinder. (I know - horrible to say right? Someone didn't like Cinder?) I don't know what more to say. I think I am still overwhelmed by the awesomeness of this book.
