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.

    Story
    "Not as good as the first book but still fun."

    Good story,
    ** Spoiler Alert!*** This story changes perspectives several times among several different characters so the story was not as smooth as it was in Meyer's first book. The addition of the second protagonist and her fairytale retelling felt a little twilight-y and was disappointing after reading Cinder, the first book in the series. I did enjoy hearing more about Cinder's story and I am excited to read the third book. Overall it was pretty good!

    Story
    "Complex, intriguing storytelling"

    I waited eagerly for the second book and now I've got to wait eagerly for the third.

    Meyer puts together a fast-paced story filled with details about the characters in a believably constructed future-ish world. I loved all the information about the science and technology of this alternate world.

    Of course this story isn't exactly new, but the telling doesn't seem to be forecast from the outset. We know who will encounter one another in the future, but we don't know exactly how their story will unfold.

    Story
    "Not at all what I expected!"

    The first book was a cute, little futuristic start to Cinderella and I loved it, but I HATE cliff hangers. This book has lots of adventure, twists and turns; I am surprised at the difference. Yet again, this is another cliff hanger. Cinder is the Princess and Scarlet is tied to her future, the two stories are separate and interesting. How will the two girls get Cinder safely back to Kai? I will be getting the third book immediately when it is released!

    Story
    "Red heads rule!"
    Would you listen to Scarlet again? Why?

    Well probably not. There are pretty much endless books for me to read and listen to, so I don't know if I would use my time listening to something I've already heard.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked all the stuff with the Lunars. I'm still trying to figure it all out. And I loved Scarlett. She was badass.


    Which character – as performed by Rebecca Soler – was your favorite?

    All the French characters. And Cinder, of course. And the ex-con she met up with, whatever his name was. He was pretty hilarious.


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

    I might have wanted to, but no one has time for that.


    Any additional comments?

    An excellent followup. Sometimes sequels aren't as good, but this book was pretty darn awesome.

    Story
    "fantastic!"
    What made the experience of listening to Scarlet the most enjoyable?

    The narrators are great, very believable, and the story is great. It made me not want to stop listening till it was over!


    What other book might you compare Scarlet to and why?

    Cinder of course, because it's by the same author. Yet it's entirely different than the first book. Exciting story!


    Which character – as performed by Rebecca Soler – was your favorite?

    Wow- they all were good. But I think I like Cinder the best.


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

    Not really. It's just a fun story. I'm glad it's not real life!

    Story
    "No Sophomore Slump!"

    Scarlet blew me away!! There is no Sophomore Slump going on with Marissa Meyers Lunar Chronicles series. The story advanced rapidly and I loved the pacing, excitement, and the way Meyers twisted Scarlet and Cinder's story lines together....fantastic! And let's talk about Wolf for a minute, can we??? By the end of this story I was crushing on Wolf like a school girl!! I can't wait for the next installment, which sadly isn't until 2014, but I won't hesitate to pre-order it and until then will be obsessively checking the calendar!

    Recommend? YES!!! I started this series on audio and will continue listening to it. I love the narrator's voice and once again she did a stellar job!!!

    "Can't wait for the next one"

    Wonderful story with a terrific audible narrator. The middle of the story gets a bit slow, in my opinion, but the end is terrific. Don't stop listening to this book. In the end, you can't "put it down" and I'd be racing for the next one if it were only out. Sadly, I must wait for the next book (Cress according to Marissa Meyer's website) in 2014.

    Story
    "Scarlet is no Cinder..."
    What would have made Scarlet better?

    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.


    What could Marissa Meyer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Continued to be as creative and innovative as she had been in the first one.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She was okay.


    What character would you cut from Scarlet?

    Scarlet.

    Story
    "I am hooked!"
    Would you listen to Scarlet again? Why?

    yes I love the characters


    What other book might you compare Scarlet to and why?

    Dianna Gabaldon's Outlander. There are real people doing things real people would do in those situations.

    Science Fiction and Fantasy are a wonderful medium to try to answer the big "what if" about ourselves.


    Have you listened to any of Rebecca Soler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes Cinder and it was just as good
