I'm not usually a steampunk fan, but I love this retelling

Nov 09, 2018

What's not to like in the futuristic retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and the big bad Wolf. In this story, Scarlet is fearless and Wolf is bad but...not that bad in the end as the alpha Wolf, and the alpha female Scarlet, develop feelings for each other. Of course, this is just a side story to the continuing main story of Cinder's escape - from Queen Levana - and search for answers to her past and future.

After reading Cinder, I was worried that her story would end and I was afraid of reading it. But Marissa Meyer found a way to switch between characters, and incorporate the new character into the world. I did enjoy the story of Cinder and Thorne though. They had an interesting adventure and learned a lot about Cinder’s history. We as readers learned more about Kai and Queen Levana. Although, I didn’t get very interested in the new characters. With the additional book, the backstory of the characters is becoming thicker and more interesting. I enjoyed the book and hope other people will too. Rating: 3/5

Now I see that this is the 2nd of 4 books in The Lunar Chronicles. I have a long way to go without any "happily ever afters" - and maybe there won't be any - but now I must know what happens to the interesting characters. This 2nd book builds on the 1st, yet enough background is given for the reader to catch up. Cinder and Scarlet's lives mysteriously intertwine with a purpose well worth fighting for. I like the subtle references to the fairy tales (Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood). As in "Cinder," there is much struggle and not much happiness. However, I have learned to believe in the characters' abilities to overcome the unusual futuristic obstacles that get in their way.

I love how this series mixes classic fairy-tales with science fiction. Very intriguing and well written.

The author was able to beautifully re invent another fairy tale with a bad ass heroine. The book is exciting and action packed.

On the other hand, I'm starting to feel that this world that the author's created is a little more than she can chew on. A bunch of new stuff was introduced in Scarlet and while I enjoyed it, I would've liked to read more about the Lunars, this new futuristic Earth with its advanced technology and of course, the plague. It'll be tricky since she's further adding new characters in the next installmemt when we've only made a little progress in the original storyline. Nonetheless, I know I'll like the next book for its characters.

I didn't like the new characters at all. Wolf was just annoying and way to secretive, and Scarlet was the worst. She would overreact and jump to conclusions too easily. Also, it took forever for Cinder and everybody to meet. However, I love learning about the world of the novel and the original characters. I think the first book was better, but the second book was more exciting.

I love hate the new characters. Scarlet jumps from being annoying and weak to strong and sassy. It all makes sense but is disconcerting. The whole dilema in this series just got more interesting though I have no idea how they are going to get out of this now.

It was a difficult start; it appeared to be too dialogue heavy. I would have preferred a prologue. I did not become completely engaged until two-thirds of the way through. Meyer has crafted two stellar modernized versions of classic tales. Anxiously awaiting the third installment.
