This review may contain spoilers of previous books in the series.

Summary:(from goodreads) The fates of Cinder and Scarlet collide as a Lunar threat spreads across the Earth...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. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or 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 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.
Review: This is the second book in the Lunar chronicles and I loved it as much as the first one. The plot was engaging and although there weren't as many plot twists as there were in the first book, there was still a lot happening. All the characters from the first book make an appearance in this one as well as a few new faces. I liked Scarlet a lot. She was a brave and determined character. The plot line involving her character really added a lot to the story. The connection between the two books was really interesting. I hope that it continues for the rest of the series. I did find a few things to be somewhat predictable but I loved the rest of the story enough that it didn't really affect my enjoyment of it. I can't wait for the next book to be released. anyone is a fan of fairytale retelling should check out this series. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite series.
