ScarletBook: Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2)

Author: Marissa Meyer

Published: February 5, 2013

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Science Fiction

Summary: 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.

My Review: Just like when I read Cinder, I’m in love with this book.

Lets just talk about Wolf now. I know, I know, the book isn’t supposed to be all about boys, blah blah blah. But come on. Boys. 

Number one: Wolf. He’s kinda sketch, not gonna lie, but he’s also so adorable. I love how he’s almost scared to touch or even be around Scarlet because he “doesn’t want to hurt her”. It’s kind like Edward and Bella but not because these two are CUTE AND PERFECT. Just sayin.

Number two: Prince Kai. He’s just too cute. I was sad that we didn’t get to see him and Cinder together at all during this book, but I’m hoping that in Cress we’ll get a bunch of cutesy Cinder and Kai moments. But lets be honest, we probably won’t just because I want them to really bad. That would be my luck.

And number three: The perfect and hilarious Carswell Thorne. I’m sorry, I mean Captain Carswell Thorne. He reminds me of Captain Jack Sparrow. Ugh, I love them both so much.


I honestly got so happy like every other chapter when all of the things in Scarlet linked back to the first book, Cinder, and it all clicked. It was fantastic. I’m so excited for Cress, which I’m actually starting right now. I’ll definitely have that review up as soon as humanly possible.

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!
