Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Delivered a romping good story"
    If you could sum up Scarlet in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, unpredictable, enjoyable


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters developed well and the plot twists kept me entertained. I looked forward to this installment for months, and it was as good as I'd hoped it would be.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of the train scenes


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Scarlet began to realize Wolf's identity, found her grandmother, & thought she was abandoned.


    Any additional comments?

    I read Cinder, Marissa Meyer's first book in this series, almost by accident. I enjoyed it a lot and waited impatiently for Scarlet to be published, hoping it would be as entertaining as the first book. It was. I love a well-written, thoroughly developed story that has enough twists to keep the reader surprised. Meyers delivers each time.

    Story
    "Not up to par, but solid"

    Not as cyberpunky and fantastical as the first book. I enjoyed Scarlet as a character and the culture and part of the world she lived in, in conjunction with Cinder's world. But I would have loved to see a similar, fast-paced tone in Scarlet... it's solid, but not up to the first one's standards.

    My biggest issue is that we get to clearly see how Asia has changed in Cinder, and I would've loved to see the same world-building in Scarlet. Rural France seems to perpetually be rural France, despite spaceships and the changes in transport and all of that. It didn't feel believable.

    Story
    "I inhaled this book!"
    What made the experience of listening to Scarlet the most enjoyable?

    I really like this series, but I have to say that this one tops the first. This is mainly due to the fact that the world has built, the stage set. So you can easily slip back in and enjoy the ride.

    I love the way Meyer takes the traditional Fairy tale elements and turns it all on it's head. The female characters are not weak. They are not waiting for their prince to come save them. And I love that.


    What other book might you compare Scarlet to and why?

    Even though it's set in the future this book has a steam punk feel. Maybe it's the overlap of the fairy tale tropes......


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I went through this book in two days and nearly cried when it was done. I wish I had paced myself better. It was over too quickly.

    "Not as Good as Cinder"

    I am going to return this book because Scarlet spends too much time, 'screeching' and too little time thinking. I enjoyed Cinder because she was a smart and interesting character, but Scarlet is not either of those things. I will not buy this author's next book.

    "Just As Good As Cinder"

    I think people got attached to Cinder and wanted the book to be just like the last once but continued. It is not. It introduces a new "fairy tale" into the mix with new characters that I thought added to the story and made it more enjoyable. Cinder is still front and center but Scarlet is likable and strong. I can't wait to see how they both evolve and which fairy tale is rewritten in book 3.

    "Very creative fairytale references"
    What about Rebecca Soler’s performance did you like?

    very consistant reader


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, if time permited but I also want to break it up to make it last. I usually listen to books several times and this one will be going to the top of my favorites list.


    Any additional comments?

    Marissa Meyer is very creative in her story telling and Rebecca Soler adds to the soul of the characters.

    "Agreed, not as great as Cinder but still good!"

    Scarlet isn't as fast paced as Cinder nor is Scarlet as adventurous (IMO) as Cinder but I did enjoy the new characters in Scarlet and enjoyed listening to the book. I agree more about Cinder, less about Scarlet would have been better but all in all it was a very good listen! Can't wait for book 3!!!

    "Little Red."

    There were lots of reviewers who didn't like the fact that Scarlett was the main focus of this book and didn't have Cinder as the main focus. I enjoyed this book even more than the first and can't wait for the next, Scarlett was a great addition. It is a young adult book and I tend towards the naughty adults stuff but I think all can enjoy this book. It has fantasy, sci-fi, romance and political war. I enjoyed the narrator, and I really enjoyed it when she did Scarlett's voice with the slight accent. I defiantly will be getting the next one, hopefully it won’t take too long to come out.
