Goodreads Synopsis:
The fates of Cinder and Scarlet collide as a Lunar threat spreads across the Earth...

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling 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.(less)

My Thoughts: This was another book that I just could not wait for. I read Cinder last year and absolutely adored it. Shortly after, a blogger I follow had received the ARC of Scarlet at ALA and said nothing but good things about it. The suspense was killing me, but alas I waited like everyone else until it was released a short time ago. This was another book that I checked to see if my library acquired each and every day until I was number one on the hold list for it.

What I Liked: I really enjoyed the new characters. I love how badass Scarlet is, and how she stood up in front of a crowd of people to express her opinion and protect someone who she believed was being wrongly accused. And there was Wolf. I don't know about any of you, but I would love to have a big macho guy by my side helping me find my Grandmother. Granted there was a lot more than the eye could see with him, but hey there's always the lore of bad boys. And lastly there was Thorne. What could possibly be said about Thorne other than he was there to add tons of laughs while you were rooting Cinder on her path.

What I didn't Like: Yes, I know that this series is going to be a quartet, and there are two more books to come, but what I missed most about this book was the romance between Cinder and Kai. It was one of the aspects that had me hooked and that I adored about Cinder. Yes we saw Kai, struggling about about what to do about Cinder, but I cannot wait to see them interacting again in the next book.
