really liked it
bookshelves: me-likey-mucho, 4-to-5-stars, reviewed, age-young-adult
Read from February 10 to 12, 2013

Final rating: 4.5/5 stars



Scarlet was so much better than Cinder. Probably because there were more characters, it was written in third person view( just like in Cinder) but with much more POVs. Like Kai, Scarlet, Thorne, Cinder and Wolf(♥). Anyway, the story was pretty good, even though it was retelling of Red Riding Hood, but it was freakier, just like Cinder.


The book starts just where Cinder ended, and it's better to read The Queen's Army before reading Scarlet.

Characters :
____________________________________________

Scarlet :

I have just one word to say before i even begin: N-A-I-V-E.

Way to much NAIVEEEEEEE!!! I don't get it how person can be so naive as she is. The only more naive person than her was Anna Whitt from Sweet Evil, who was even worse than Scarlet. I mean....you go with unknown person who is connected to people who kidnapped your family? Without any second thought that you are going into trap? I could have guessed it like...the moment when certain character showed up. Except for that, she was not so bad. She was fun and she didn't irritate me. But i still like Cinder better.

Wolf :

When i read The Queen's Army, i already liked Wolf. Except there we have his name, and it is: (view spoiler) and it's so.....cool :D...Though he was called Wolf whole time...Now i just wonder, if Scarlet trusted him, why didn't she ask him to tell her his name again? See? Fishy. I must say no more.

Cinder :

Cinder is in prison. Or was in prison, until she broke out of it. See? Kick ass cyborg-Lunar-princess was awesome as usual. She is amazing in every scene and i just love her <33333

Thorne :

is a new character,20 year old felon, thief, criminal, captain of the stolen ship...who helped Cinder escape. Actually, it was other way around, since it was Cinder who actually made it happen, and Thorne had a ship. He is a womanizer, but he is cool as well :D I am glad that there were his POVs as well, since it was more interesting.

Kai :

Is it just me, or did anyone else thought about killing him on the spot??? He irritated the hell out of me. But he is still the same Kai on the inside and he is forced to make some decisions which are devastating for my heart :(((

____________________________________________

Overall :
____________________________________________

Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun,fun, fun, fun book :D
I need third book out nowwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!

Quotes Kristalia Liked

Marissa Meyer
“She sighed, annoyed at her restlessness. “So,” she said, disrupting Wolf in another backward glance.
“Who would win in a fight—you or a pack of wolves?”
He frowned at her, all seriousness. “Depends,” he said, slowly, like he was trying to figure out her motive for asking. “How big is the pack?”
“I don’t know, what’s normal? Six?”
“I could win against six,” he said. “Any more than that and it could be a close call.”
Scarlet smirked. “You’re not in danger of low self-esteem, at least.”
“What do you mean?”
“Nothing at all.” She kicked a stone from their path. “How about you and … a lion?”
“A cat? Don’t insult me.”
She laughed, the sound sharp and surprising. “How about a bear?”
“Why, do you see one out there?”
“Not yet, but I want to be prepared in case I have to rescue you.”
The smile she’d been waiting for warmed his face, a glint of white teeth flashing. “I’m not sure. I’ve never had to fight a bear before.”
Marissa Meyer, Scarlet

Marissa Meyer
“A relieved grin filled up Thorne’s face. “We’re having another moment, aren’t we?”

“If by a moment, you mean me not wanting to strangle you for the first time since we met, then I guess we are.”
Marissa Meyer, Scarlet

Mary Loved your review! Just wondering, why didn't you like Kai? He was dealing with a LOT, and yes, I practically tore out the page when he agreed to Levanna's proposal and all (because Cinder HAS to be with Kai!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) but he was going through a difficult time.


Kristalia thanx Mary ^_^
