Synopsis: This is not the fairytale you remember.
But it’s one you won’t forget.
Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. The police have closed her case. The only person Scarlet can turn to is Wolf, a street fighter she does not trust, but they are drawn to each other.
Meanwhile, in New Beijing, Cinder will become the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive – when she breaks out of prison to stay one step ahead of vicious Queen Levana.
As Scarlet and Wolf expose one mystery, they encounter Cinder and a new one unravels. Together they must challenge the evil queen, who will stop at nothing to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner…

MY RATING: 5 Starts


I liked Cinder very much, but this book?! OMG! I loved it so so so so much more… I really wanted to rate it 6 stars, but as everyone knows there are rules! 5 stars is the limit! (just kidding, that are just my rules…)
This book for me was really awesome, I loved the main character (Scarlet) and I loved even more Wolf. I liked very much the fact that Marissa Meyer wrote a story with the main character of the first book and the main character of the second one… because come on! They were “working” together and that’s fantastic… Marissa, I love you even more than before, you’ll be in my heart forever!

SOOO, Scarlet’s grand-mère (yeah yeah… they live in France and I’m just trying to inovate…) is missing and now she has to find her! The police have closed this case because they think that that old woman is totally and absolutely crazy… in other words: They think that she’s nuts!
Now, Scarlet needs help, she wants to find her grandmother and the only “person” that can help her is Wolf (a handsome, and really cute, and hot, and awesome guy…).
Meanwhile, there’s Cinder, the main character of the first book. In New Beijing she’ll become the MOST wanted fugitive.
Then, there’s Queen Levana (the most evil queen on earth… I mean, Luna… I mean BOTH!)… and now Cinder, Scarlet, Wolf and other people (Thorne) are together because I think that they’ll fight against Levana.

While I was reading this book I almost had a heart attack because I was expecting something and then the things changed a lot. I trusted in one character (view spoiler) and then I didn’t trust him, and then I trusted him again! … sometimes I think my brain is bipolar.
