5.0 out of 5 stars Scarlet, 9 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, Book 2) (Paperback)
Scarlet starts a few hours after the last book, with Cinder escaping from prison and the death sentence by Queen Levana. She meets up with fellow prisoner Thorne and together they go on a search for answers to Cinders past and how she came to live with her Step-Family. Meanwhile in France, a girl who always wears a red hoodie called Scarlet is searching for her missing Grandmother who everyone believes just wondered away but she does not believe this. Scarlet meets up with a street fighter called Wolf, who believes he knows where her Grandmother is being held captive, but can Scarlet trust him or is he more involved than he is saying.

Scarlet is the fantastic second book in the Lunar Chronicles, and I love the touches of both Cinderella and Red Riding Hood but in a way never seen before. Scarlet is a much shorter time period than Cinder but it is just as action-packed because if one of the stories slows down, the other is in the middle of the action.

In this book Cinder is having a bit of a personality crisis, as she has only just found out she is the missing Lunar Princess and a lot of people are desperate to find her, but she is still the same person we grew to like in the first book. I also really liked Scarlet because of her love and loyalty to her Grandmother and her belief that you should not judge someone before you know what they have been through. However the one person I could not really connect to was Thorne as I felt we don't really know much about him and I hope we learn more about him in the next book.

The romance between Kai and Cinder was not as interesting as the last book as they were not together at all, so I could not the connection as much as Cinder. That being said it did feel their feelings for each other did influence some of the decisions they made. However, Scarlet and Wolf's romance was nice and enjoyable and this book really left you guessing if Wolf actually liked her or was actually using her.

I really love this series and I cannot believe that I have to wait until 2014 to read the next book Cress. I would recommend Scarlet to people who liked Cinder or dystopian novels with a twist.
