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.
Wow! This book was amazing! I read Cinder about a month ago and I wasn't sure when I was going to pick up Scarlet. Yes, I really loved Cinder but I feel like sometimes you just have to be in the mood for fairytale retellings, you know? Scarlet is obviously a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, but it still continues with Cinder's story from the first book. I love love love how everything came together!

"I don't see that her being Cyborg is relevant."
I really think this is a fantastic series. I'm so glad I decided to start it! I also am currently in the first quarter of Cress… I currently don't like it as much as Scarlet or Cinder, but I'm thinking it will pick up soon! If you haven't read any of this series yet, I highly recommend it! While it's considered a fairytale retelling, you really don't even think about it being one! It really is a unique series that isn't bounded by the strictures of the old fairytales. So even if you aren't a huge fan of retellings, I'd still recommend this to you!
