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.

Great story with perfect twists on classic tales

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!

Predictable but entertaining

This would have been much better without the gushing pre-teen girl dialogue that welled up to many times in the story.

I am Truly enojoying this series

Would you consider the audio edition of Scarlet to be better than the print version?

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

Who was your favorite character and why?

Wolf is very sympathetic, imperfect but trying to find a reason to change

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

very Much enjoy all the characters, The Captain, Wolf and Scarlett

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

On the Train

Better than the last one.

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).
Overall...........Four stars.

However..
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. ;)

Book two is just as good and better in some areas.

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.

Who's Scarlet

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I don't understand what Scarlet has to do with Cinder.<br/>

What was most disappointing about Marissa Meyer’s story?

I was expecting the continuation of Cinder's story

What about Rebecca Soler’s performance did you like?

The Narrator was fine. Nothing outstanding

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

Won't bother to listen to book three. To bad I was interested in what would happen to <br/>Cinder once out of jail

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.

Love this Series!

I love Cinder. I'm a huge Sci-fi fan so mixing my love for fairy tales and Sci-fi was perfect. Scarlet was just as good as Cinder, more love story than sci-fi. Wolf was dark and intriguing of course but my favorite character ended up being Captain Thorne. He brought much amusement to the story. I do hope the next book has more Cinder, as that is who I read and reread the first book for.
