Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

I've been waiting to read Scarlet since I finished Cinder last February. I was slightly disappointed that this one followed Scarlet rather than Cinder but I quickly got over it because Meyer weaves Cinder and Scarlet's stories together so well.
Scarlet's grandmother is missing. Scarlet doesn't know how to find her or why she might have been taken. When Scarlet meets Wolf, a mysterious street fighter, who offers to help her, she jumps at the chance especially since he seems to know where her grandmother is being held. I liked Scarlet. She's got guts. She's got a quick temper but she's quick to help. I adored Wolf. A hulking man who turns shy at times, swoon! I loved Scarlet and Wolf's interactions. I smiled whenever they were on the page together.
Cinder and my favorite, Iko, are back. Cinder's story picks up right where Cinder left off. Kai got little page time but I see him playing a large part in the next book. I enjoyed the developments in Cinder's story especially when it intersected with Scarlet's story.
I'm loving this series. I cannot wait for the next book! I was so sad when I finished Scarlet. Meyer writes some great characters in a fascinating world. Others who shared their thoughts on Scarlet: A Room With Books, Read. Breathe. Relax., Good Books and Good Wine, On The Nightstand, Alexa Loves Books, and Ink and Page.
This is my third read for the Mammoth Book Challenge.
