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.
Rebecca Soler is pretty awesome as a narrator. I am quite fond of her accents and different voices. Also, she helped keep me attentive, even during the less interesting parts... which was a lot of the beginning for me.
As the story continued on, I found myself becoming more drawn in to it and getting more attached to the new characters. I especially liked how everything become connected.
There were a few shocking bits, probably ones I should have expected... especially more toward the end. They definitely kept me focused.
Iko is still my favorite character, even as a ship she is totally the best ever. I'm glad she returned.
I actually liked this one more than Cinder, but not because of the Scarlet/Wolf bits. I found the advancement of the story line and the whole lot less gushy parts to make it more cooler. I look forward to book 3, whenever it's my turn to listen to it.
