Book Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

ImageBook two in the Lunar Chronicles interweaves the continuing story of Cinder with Scarlet Benoit. Scarlet’s grandmother is missing at the start of the book and she meets a mysterious stranger named Wolf. Cinder is actively seeking a way out of jail and a solution to events that unfolded in book one.  If you liked the first book, you are sure to enjoy the sequel. Enough back story from Cinder to refresh your memory without boring you, but I would certainly read this series in order!

I love this series that takes traditional fairy tales and gives them a very modern sci-fi slant. The characters are believable and the plot unpredictable.
