Review: Scarlet

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well, well, well.

Or is it Carswell?

I want to say everything about this book. I LOVED IT!!! Mostly because of Wolf and Captain Carswell Thorne. But then I cling to guy characters no matter what the book. I will say that without Cinder and Scarlet, the guys wouldn’t have been as interesting. Or infuriating.

This story is told through alternating parts, though running along the same time line. Scarlet Benoit in her red hoodie (Red Riding Hood) has been searching for her grandmother. And with the help of a big WOLF, she intends to find her and save her. Because the police have considered her case done and over. Meanwhile, Captain Thorne…and we’re using that term loosely, has helped Cinder escape prison and are on their way in his stolen, hunk of junk, freighter ship. All while Prince Emperor Kaito is dealing with Levana, Queen of the Lunars…

I don’t like it. Her. And because of her, I’m finding it difficult to like Kai now. *huffs in frustration* Okay. I guess if I didn’t despise the bad guy…girl…then something went wrong somewhere. Let’s get back to the positives (though the negatives are wins, too).

Cinder is still Cyborg. Still working on her Lunar heritage. Still fixing things. And now dealing with Thorne. Thorne is jst a go-with-the-flow sorta guy. They’re so funny together. I found myself laughing quite a bit while reading them.

Scarlet might be a little too hot tempered for me, but she’s also determined. That’s what I like about her. That and her thick curly hair. *envy* She’s on a mission with Wolf helping her. Wolf, though, his harboring secrets galore…and I find myself yelling at him for things he’s done…But…maybe I’m coming around.

Again, don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone about this creative clash of tales. I thoroughly enjoyed it so much. I’m hoping Cress only gets better from here.
