Scarlet - Marissa Meyer Unfortunately, I found this one didn't flow as well as the first book.

Despite Scarlet being the eponymous title character, so much of the book remained devoted to Cinder and the happenings with Kai and the Commonwealth that she almost felt like a side character.

Scarlet's story just wasn't as fleshed out, and her background felt flimsy with her motivations lacking in depth in comparison.

Still very much enjoying the futuristic sci-fi fairy tale retelling concept, though.
