Goodreads Synopsis:

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. 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.


This is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles series. Cinder’s story gets more intense in this instalment. Now Scarlet (who plays the role of Little Red Riding Hood) is added to the mix.

I like the role that Wolf plays in the story. He is a fighter who saves Scarlet. Their relationship is very cute to see unfolding.

When I read this book, I found I kept waiting for Cinder’s story to return. I like Scarlet but Cinder will always be my favourite character.

I love this series so much! My review for Cinder can be found here.
