JUST WHEN YOU THINK IT CAN’T GET ANY BETTER. IT DONE DID.

“She did not know that the wolf was a wicked sort of animal, and she was not afraid of him”
This entire series has just blown my mind and I am midway through the third book, Cress, now.
Scarlet is book 2/5 of the Lunar Chronicles and it heavily attaches itself to the story of Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, as well as keeping itself so involved with the main storyline which was my main concern as I was hoping it was stay close and stay interested and it damn DID.
It’s phenomenal to have two potential disney princesses in these dysfunctional and action packed books come together as a team, especially with Wolf too. Once again I was hooked and could not put this book down. The story flows so smoothly and is just as intense, constantly keeping me on my toes and wanting to know what is coming next.
It is great following Scarlet and Wolf trying to figure out one adventure, and then coming across Cinder and learning how their lives intertwined and how they do indeed need each other to somehow reach their goals and justice! Its written incredibly well and great watching the storylines run alongside each other!
Scarlet’s Grandmother, much like the Little Red Riding Hood story, is another important character in which I WISH, SO MUCH, That she had had more time and more contribution. But that is the point, she had the information they were dying to find out.
‘The balance of focus on the two separate plot lines was something achieved really well and the merging of the story-lines at the very end was done in a seamless way’ – The Guardian
ALSO COMPLETELY OFF TOPIC BUT TOTALLY RELEVANT, Cinder’s ship is named Iko, before Iko was her Android before her ‘family’ destroyed Iko’s body. Cinder then program’s her into her ship and I JUST FOUND OUT MARISSA MEYERS HAS WRITTEN 2 BOOKS ABOUT IKO CALLED ‘Wires & Nerves’ AND I AM SO GASSED.
I also get more and more devastated for Kai having to get engaged to Levana for the sake of peace with every page, I almost feel like I can FEEL his frustration and upset, it upsets me! Especially with her actions and demands in this book, absolute carnage, that woman needs to calm the fUCK DOWN.
I would give this a solid 5/5.
It was phenomenal and I was gripped from start to finish jumping straight into book 3, this entire series is just messing with my emotions and I am LIVING for it.
