I literally just finished this book a few minutes ago and I was not disappointed!
Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother has been missing for over a week and with the help of a street fighter named Wolf, Scarlet sets out to find her. This is the second book to Merissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles. In this book we focus on the retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. Like Cinder, Scarlet is pretty badass. She even carries around a gun that her grandmother taught her to use when she was eleven! How bizarre is that! Wolf’s character is supposed to be a little broken but at times I thought he was a little too pathetic.
At the same time this is happening, Cinder is trying to deal with a revelation that scientist, Dr. Erland revealed to her at the end of the first book( read review here). Towards the end of the second installment she meets up with Scarlet which sets them on the path to meet Cress who is the next character is this series.
I have to say this series is highly entertaining! Unlike Alex Flynn’s retelling of the classice fairy tales, the Lunar Chronicles overlap and they characters interact with each other which I love. Overall, I give the second book a 5/5.
Until next time!
