Scarlet book review
Series: The Lunar Chronicles
Number in series: 2
Author: Marissa Meyer
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction
Scarlet Benoit lives on a farm with her Grandmother Michelle Benoit in France.
When Michelle Benoit goes missing Scarlet believes someone has kidnapped her grandmother, but Scarlet doesn't know why.
Meanwhile Cinder, a cyborg fugitive, has escaped prison along with Captain Carswell Thorne, a convicted theif.
As Scarlet and Cinder find out truths that bring them together, their lives are in greater danger than before.
What I liked about this book:
This was a very interesting retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.
It was cool how the author used that fairytale to help the storyline progress.
Like Cinder, the ending was a cliff hanger so I'm looking forward to reading Cress soon.
What I didn't like about this book:
I didn't like this book as much as Cinder. I think that is because I relate to Cinder and Prince Kai more than to Scarlet and Wolf.
There is some content- Mild language, some innuendo, and many scenes contained graphic violence.
My rating: 2.5
