Publisher's Summary

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the best-selling 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.

Not sure if fault lies in performance or story

I was enchanted by the first in this series. Loved the plays on classic fairy tale tropes, but this installment left me irritated. Not sure if the fault lies in Scarlet's character and the weaker story or in the performance. The accent used for the character slips in and out and is incredibly shrill when she yells. The listener is left feeling as if they are in the presence of a banshee. This may seem a bit harsh and it may be second story in a trilogy syndrome but I wish that the charm of the first book had migrated to the second. I will listen to it again to better determine the fault. Despite these criticisms, I am still invested in Cinder's tale and eagerly anticipate the next installment.

The fairy tale continues ...

Story - As Cinder (Book 1 in this series) is a clever futuristic twist of the classic fairy tale Cinderella, Scarlet (Book 2) is the same of Little Red Riding Hood. I enjoyed Scarlet but don't think it is anywhere near as good as Cinder. I am not a young adult, but I tend to enjoy certain books in this genre because I find the stories sweet and the romances touching and innocent. I absolutely loved the romance aspect in Cinder, but IMHO the one in Scarlet is kinda blah. Nevertheless, there is lots of stuff happening that make this book a good listen.

There are two story lines which alternate. One picks up where Cinder left off, and the second goes in a completely different direction and introduces totally new characters. The two become entwined in the end and hopefully set the stage for an awesome conclusion in Book 3 (which isn't out yet). I'm really ready for Prince Kye to find out who Cinder really is and for there to be a happy ending.

You should hear this series in order, and they are not standalone stories. In fact, the endings of both books will leave you hanging till the next one. They are relatively light, "easy listens" that also have mystery and quite a bit of save-the-world type action.

Narrator - Good job but nothing spectacular.

Story - Recommended for female listeners of all ages who can occasionally be young at heart, but you will need to hear the whole series to reach a conclusion.
