Book recommendation; Scarlet

Image result for scarlet marissa meyerScarlet is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles, following the previous book I posted about, Cinder. The series is written by Marissa Meyer and I guess it’s technically written for teens, but it is interesting enough to catch the attention of older readers too. It deals with a lot of different mature themes so I didn’t find it to be juvenile at all.

In this novel we are introduced to a young woman named Scarlet, she works as a farmer/delivery girl and she kinda gets into trouble for trying to stand up for Cinder, who we got to know in the previous book. We are also introduced to a fellow named Wolf, and I found out that there is pretty much a whole fandom dedicated to the Scarlet x Wolf pairing, as you can see in the picture featured below, there is quite a few fan drawings of how they think they look, both separate and together. I’m not sure if it reflects how i envisioned them but it’s not bad at all! Anyways, here’s a summary of the novel, it’s more comprehensible than my mindless ramble about these two.

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.

If you have read the first book and enjoyed it, or alternatively didn’t enjoy it that much, give Scarlet a go! It has a lot more action and you get to know a lot more about the Lunar people, you experience deceit, death, revenge and love and it’s absolutely wonderful! I’m so glad I was introduced to this series. I only have the last book left now, not sure if I want the series to end so soon!
