Note: If you haven’t read Cinder, this review will contain major spoilers for you as this is the 2nd book in the series!
In the 2nd installment of The Lunar Chronicles, Cinder is on the run. From breaking out of prison to meeting new friends, Cinder’s mission to beat Queen Levana continues.
I really enjoyed the new characters in this book. I found that the introduction of these characters were very smooth and natural. Although some of the focus has gone to the newer characters, we still have great dynamics on the characters we met in the first book. I found this book a little more thrilling due to the amount of action as well, which was fairly enjoyable.
I found that the amount of action was raised in this book, however, character development lessoned. I feel like the characters didn’t develop very much, causing them to be a little bit static. Specifically, I’m talking about the characters we first met in the first book.
Writing style: 4/5
I found that the second installment of this series was pretty good. I did enjoy it, however I found that it wasn’t better than the first book. I liked the two around the same because of different reasons. However, I still do enjoy this series and I still definitely am continuing it. Unfortunately, Scarlet didn’t leave me with a lot to say so this is on the shorter side for a review!
I hope you enjoyed my review nevertheless, let me know what your thoughts on Scarlet are if you’ve read it!
