Awesome-even better than the first. The author's allusions to Little Red Riding Hood---fabulous. The merging of Cinder's story with Scarlet's- phenomenal. Cannot wait for the next book.

I really enjoyed book 2 and am looking forward to book 3. I liked the new characters. This book was maybe not as exciting as book 1 was but still good all the same.

I found parts of this book to be a bit awkward, as she tries to continue the thread of the original story and meld in adapted versions of others. It is, nevertheless, still interesting and unique.

I really liked the "Cinder" parts of the book and I thought that Thorne was a good character addition. However, I was constantly annoyed at Scarlet and Wolf was just a really flat character who I found selfish and rude. I found myself skipping the "Scarlet" parts of the book almost every time they came up. The "Kai" parts of the book were okay, but not especially interesting.

This was a very good sequel. I did not really like Wolf's personality in the beginning, but I warmed up to him. There was one scene that was grossly gory, though. I loved Captain Carswell Thorne, he was definitely my favourite character in this book.

This book was better than the first. I thought the multiple perspectives would get distracting, but the book flowed fairly well and the energy was more consistent than Cinder. I really enjoyed it! Good action, characters, and a different set of fictional figures. Exciting read through and through.

not as good as the first

(sob) the next one doesn't come out til Feb. 4

This book was just as amazing as the first '

Great sequel to Cinder, it was less predictable than the first book which I appreciated. I will wait patiently for the next book... I will try.

“He was still dazed, and though she hated to admit it, he was actually rather attractive. If a girl happened to like that square-jaw, bright-blue-eyes, devilish-dimples kind of thing. Although he was in desperate need of a haircut and a good shave.”

“I just think we shouldn't judge her, or anyone, without trying to understand them first. That maybe we should get the full story before jumping to conclusions. Crazy notion, I know.”

“Little Red was a tender young morsel, and the wolf knew she would be even tastier than the old woman.”

“But her grandmother had never suggested she could think the same of Scarlet. You'll be fine, she always said, after a skinned knee, after a broken arm, after her first youthful heartbreak. You'll be fine, because you're strong, like me.”

“He gaped at the controls. 'Why is my ship talking back to me?'”

“We met less than a week ago and in that time I've done nothing but lie and cheat and betray you. I know. But if you give me a chance... all I want is to protect you. To be near you. For as long as I'm able.”

“I don’t see that her being cyborg is relevant.”

“'I knew they would kill me when they found out, but...' He struggled for words, releasing a sharp breath. 'I think I realized that I would rather die because I betrayed them, than live because I betrayed you.'”
