Summary: While Cinder escape and becomes the most wanted criminal in Commonwealth. Halfway across the world in Toulouse, France Scarlet Benoit is searching for her grandmother. No one seems to care or want to help other than a street fighter everyone calls Wolf. Now with Wolf’s help they follow the breadcrumbs that will hopefully lead to her grandmother.
The story is set in different point of views so that you don’t miss out on the old characters as you get introduced to the new ones. Also for a second book it was a faster pace than the first book. So with the quickness and action I speed through this book. Also with the world building you just get sucked in.
As of the old characters they’ve grown up a lot in this second book. Which is big since both Kai and Cinder are still teens, and in a short time has taken a lot of responsible on each of there shoulders. As you read you see through their points of views that they were struggle Kai with Queen Levana to not start a war. Then there’s Cinder whose trying not to get caught while looking for answers. Iko is back and am so happy. She played a big part in these book as well, and brought her sass and humor with her. I guess I can say about Queen Levana is I still really don’t like her. I raged so much when her and Sybil as they racked havoc without a care. I can’t wait until they both be put down a peg or two because they so need it along with a good beat down.
Now to the newer characters. Scarlet am waiting for her to catch her strive. She is a red haired gardener who can pilot a ship, and that’s all I’ve gotten so far. She does have a connection to Cinder that we learn later in the book. So that is why I haven’t given up on her yet. Wolf is the street fighter that seems really shy at first, but as the book progresses we learn that there is more to him. He is always there ready to save Scarlet when needed and it was needed. And watching there banter was sweet even if it did fell that things were more instant love going on. Last character is Captain Throne the furtive that escaped
with Cinder. I like Throne for his humor more than anything. Also for the fact out of everyone he was the most help to Cinder.
My feelings were torn in these book along with sleepless nights. Meyer really knows how to suck you in until you forget the world outside this one. There is still a lot of questions that need to be answered, and I can’t to see what Cinder and gang have in store next.
