Synopsis: Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, and the long-lost Lunar Princess, the rightful heir to the Luna throne, is 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.
Review: Wow. This book was incredible. I cannot express how much I love this series. I liked how the plot was not nearly as predictable as the first one. Although I did not enjoy Scarlet’s point of view in the beginning, I grew to be very fascinated with it. I loved the journey between her and Wolf, and the budding romance. I enjoy that Marissa lets us see from a lot of different perspectives in this series. This one took me a bit longer to get into, but around 80 pages I was sucked into it. I love the way Marissa writes, and all the characters different background and histories. This was very enjoyable.
I give this book 5/5 stars and would highly recommend it to fans of fantasy and science fiction.
