It took a while for me to get into the story line with the new characters but in the end it hooked me back in!! Stick to it even if you might get confused bc I promise it will all pay off. Can't wait to start the next one!
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
I have to admit that it's kind of ingenious the way the author has merged into very different story lines. This second book was as good as the first.
I'm a Registered Nurse. I've been an avid reader all my life. I love Audible books. I'm able to enjoy books and still keep busy!
I enojoy the ability to continue to hear all the action in the story as I drive to work or do errands around town or at home
Wolf is very sympathetic, imperfect but trying to find a reason to change
very Much enjoy all the characters, The Captain, Wolf and Scarlett
On the Train
This book was better than the last one......at least, the second part was.
First half of the book.......Three stars.
Second half of the book...Four and a half stars (getting to five there).
The issues that I had with Cinder, were there. For example, the simplistic and not very bright characters. Don't misunderstand me! They're still likeable and I thought Cinder was much better this time around , Scarlet was a strong character but a bit predictable.
I did enjoy the book and was entertained by it, so I'll wait for the next one. ;)

Well, the first one, Cinder, hooked me. I got this one, expecting little, as you know how sequels can be. I was happily impressed. The series gets better. Little Red Riding hood in modern futuristic Europe flies a space ship from the family farm to save the princess that her Grandmother, a space pilot in her youth, died to save. Very believable, if you can believe that, haha. I liked it alot and will continue with the series. These are no damsels in distress. Scarlett is a highly capable young lady. Borrows from multiple fairy tales and modern adventure stories and does it with such spontaneity and flair that one applauds as these plot snippets show up. It's a good series.
I don't understand what Scarlet has to do with Cinder.
I was expecting the continuation of Cinder's story
The Narrator was fine. Nothing outstanding
Won't bother to listen to book three. To bad I was interested in what would happen to
Cinder once out of jail
A more interesting character? Scarlet just seems like a stereotypical whiny teenage protagonist. Cinder was really really interesting in her background, lifestyle, etc. Nothing grabbed me in this one and I had trouble getting through it. Jumping back and forth between Scarlet and Cinder was irritating.
Continued to be as creative and innovative as she had been in the first one.
She was okay.
I love Cinder. I'm a huge Sci-fi fan so mixing my love for fairy tales and Sci-fi was perfect. Scarlet was just as good as Cinder, more love story than sci-fi. Wolf was dark and intriguing of course but my favorite character ended up being Captain Thorne. He brought much amusement to the story. I do hope the next book has more Cinder, as that is who I read and reread the first book for.
