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.😃.
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!
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
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.
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.
