it's a great story, so I was excited to keep it going, but this just didn't capture me like the first book. I do appreciate the fairy tale play, but the story felt forced and weak compared to the first.
This is a fantastic book for both adults and tweens. A nice twist on the standard fairytale. I started started reading it, but I much prefer this as an audio book. The narrator does a great job staying in character.
I am in LOVE with this series! I read Cinder when it first came out and just picked this one up and couldn't put it down!!! Am starting the next one now!! ❤️
Normally, sequels can be either really bad or really good, and in this case it was really good! Not sure if Cinder annoys anyone else or just me? But she was really annoying in this second book. I love Scarlet, Wolf, and Thorne but Cinder, Kai and Iko annoy me. Super excited to read Cress, I have a feeling I'll really like her character as well. I definitely recommend this series to anyone who loves The Hunger Games and Twilight. Parts of these books remind me of both. Basically if you like Young Adult Fantasy then the Lunar Chronicles is for you!
