Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the best-selling 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.

This book meet higher than my expectations. My fav part was wolf trying to open the can of tomatoes with a meat tenderizer 😹I died laughing. The narrator was amazing I loved how she added the correct ascents to the different people.😃.
Not nearly as good as the first book, I just couldn't connect with the characters in this one.
Still haven't finished it, I'm kind of dragging my heels at this point.
I didn't really care for Scarlet, but Cinder's character felt a little flat as well, it just doesn't compare to the first book. I wanted to love it, but couldn't.
I liked Scarlet very much. Maybe not as much as Cinder, but that was probably because Cinder caught me so off guard. I expected to enjoy Scarlet, and I did. This second book in the Lunar Chronicles continues Cinder and Kai's story, in addition to a new fairy tale - Little Red Riding Hood.
Scarlet's grandmother has gone missing, and all signs point to the handsome new stranger in town. Wolf may seem like the bad guy, but Scarlet's instincts tell her to trust him, and she lets him help her in the search for grandma. Soon enough, bad things happen (thanks to the evil Queen Levana) and Cinder and Scarlet cross paths. This has all of the elements I loved in book one plus the same fantastic narration. I can't wait for the rest of the series. Which, sadly, won't be until next year.
Another fantastic reinterpretation, Scarlet definately holds up to Cinders standards. The inventive world Meyer has created meshes well with her unique version of the classic fairy tale characters, making Scarlet a great story!
Before I even finished hearing "Cinder," I ordered "Scarlet." I couldn't resist. Thankfully, I trusted my intuition because it paid off. I was hooked! I loved Cinder and I wanted to know what would happen next--plus they added side stories!!! I loved every second of this audible. Get to a relaxing moment to a full on cardio workout, it kept me going. Before this one even finished, I brought "Cress." I think I'll probably order the last one before it's even up!
Before I read Scarlet I saw on a lot of reviews that people weren't as happy with this book as they were with the first one, but I really loved it. The progression of Scarlett story was great and I'm really happy about the way it ended and was so proud of cinder. I was pleasantly surprised! I just bought books 3, 3 1/2, and 4, so about to go on a binge and finish this series! I love it!
Loved it. Great narration, story juggles multiple lines in a good rythm so your always left wanting more but never left waiting in between critical moments. Awesome!
