This time, it’s Little Red Riding Hood set in the distant future. And yes, there is a big, bad Wolf.
Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison — even though she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive if she does.
Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother, or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother's whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana.

"Scarlet" introduces Scarlet Benoit, based on Little Red Riding Hood. This book is divided into more or less three different sections. First of all, we follow the adventures of Scar (mostly together with Wolf). The second part sees Cinder, together with Captain Thorne, travelling to Europe. (These two parts will eventually get mixed into each other.) And then there are some chapters who focus on emperor Kai, who struggles to find the line between what is right and wrong, what is a lie and what isn't. I read this book in four hours. That means it is a very good book.
