Waiting on Wednesday: Scarlet

Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-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. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother and 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 has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own.

As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.

    I haven’t read Cinder yet. I love fairytale retellings, but I’m not a huge fan of futuristic/sci-fi books. I should look into it, though. I’ve heard it is amazing. 🙂

      I really enjoyed it! Although I like the occasional sci fi, Cinder didn’t really FEEL like sci fi to me, if that makes sense…it felt very grounded in the world, and very character driven (not that sci fi isn’t, but it can get a bit clinical and world-heavy at times). It felt more like fantasy to me; I tend to forget its sci fi at all. If you like fairytale retellings, you should definitely check it out!
