Here is the Goodreads synopsis:
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.

My Thoughts:
**Any book review will most likely contain spoilers**
I really enjoyed this 2nd installment of the Lunar Chronicles. I thought Scarlet was better than Cinder, just because of how the story has developed and with the introduction of new characters. I thought the different point of views were very interesting. I felt it enhanced this story by being able to focus on more than one character. The more I kept reading the more intense it got, which made it hard to put down at times. I would probably re-read these books again in the future.Scarlet has this feistiness about her, which is always fun to read in a character. In Cinder, I loved the chemistry between Cinder and Kai, but I think Scarlet and Wolf could give them a run for their money. The stand out character to me was by far Carswell Thorne, He was witty and funny which are always nice personality traits to have in a character. His banter with Cinder was always a pleasure to read. I still love Iko, she is an adorable character.
