Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (Book 2 of the Lunar Chronicles series) Sequel to Cinder
Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother has been missing for weeks and the police are giving up looking. Frustrated, Scarlet enlists the help of a strange street-fighter named Wolf, who may or may not know something about why her grandmother disappeared. Together, they uncover the mystery of her grandmother’s secret life, while trying to find and rescue her. Scarlet’s life is about to drastically change.
Meanwhile, Cinder is in New Beijing awaiting her execution by Queen Levana. With the help of witty “Captain” Carswell Thorne, can she escape and remain undetected by the Commonwealth and the Lunar Queen?
I would’ve written a review for this book like a year ago, but there are so many subplots in this story that I had a hard time writing a review that was short and sweet while not giving anything away. Personally, I can’t really decide if I like this one or Cinder better. They’re both so good! Thorne is hilarious with Cinder, there are so many questions about her lineage answered, plus more details to wonder about for the next book. Thorne reminds me of Flynn Rider from Tangled (and a little bit of Han Solo). And we all know he’s really funny. 🙂 Scarlet is a feisty red-head (I bet you know which fairytale character she is), who knows how to get what she wants. And Wolf, well he’s a shy street-fighter with bright, capturing green eyes. The reason I’m writing this review now is because the next book (Cress) is coming out TOMORROW!!! I’m SO excited!
I realize that this is the first book review I’ve done in a long while, but with my super busy schedule, I haven’t found much time for reading. But last weekend I hunkered down and just read all day both Saturday and Sunday. And I got three books in. I think that’s pretty good, don’t you? So I’ll be writing reviews for the other two books soon. And DEFINITELY a review for Cress when it comes out.
