kareila: hidden between stacks of books (books)
[personal profile] kareila posting in [community profile] kareila_books
I’m really glad I reread Cinder first, because Scarlet picks up right where Cinder left off and doesn’t slow down. The story mostly alternates between Cinder’s viewpoint in New Beijing and that of Scarlet in rural France. Scarlet is a young farmer searching for her missing grandmother, who was kidnapped by... wolves? Yep, she wears a red hooded sweatshirt.

At first it isn’t clear how Scarlet and Cinder are connected, but gradually it is revealed that Scarlet’s grandmother, Michelle Benoit, is believed by government spies to have assisted in Cinder’s mysterious childhood escape from Luna to Earth. Cinder also knows this information, thanks to her access to Prince Kai’s personal android, so she and Scarlet are both trying to find the same woman.

Both Scarlet and Cinder pick up new and interesting sidekicks. Cinder accidentally liberates fellow prisoner Carswell Thorne, a good-natured rogue who substitutes handsomeness and bluster for intelligence. Scarlet, of course, is accompanied by Wolf, a dangerous yet sympathetic fighter with a hidden past, who may or may not be trustworthy.
