Fiction Addict Scorecard: B
Fact: When I discover a series that completely sucks me in…I simply have to binge read the whole thing. If the series has stand-alone novels in it, it isn’t as much torture and I can wait…But if it is a continuing storyline…You won’t see me come up for air until I am done (or to post the reviews for said books). So pass me the Starbursts and Red Bull, I will see ya later! Oh, after I finish this post.
Scarlet picks up the day after Cinder ends. Cinder and Kai remain as main characters throughout the second book. But now we are introduced to a whole new level of intrigue in the storyline. Scarlet and Wolf are AMAZING! I adore them and can’t wait to see where their story leads. Scarlet’s grandmere is pretty awesome too!
As secrets unfold of her heritage and her grandmother’s past, Scarlet embarks on a dangerous mission to find her grandmere and bring her home. Scarlet will do anything to protect the only family she has left, even at the risk of her own safety. We also begin to learn more about Cinder’s past and everything that she has gone through.
Cyborgs, Wolf Gangs, Lunar aliens, space travel, escaped convicts, hidden princess, hidden genealogy, this series has so much to offer and entertain. Clean and sweet romance appropriate for Young Adults. I am comfortable recommending this book to teens and adults.
