Bel Reviews: Marissa Meyer's - "Scarlet"

meyer_scarletFairytale re-tellings can either be completely brilliant or total poop. Marissa Meyer is a master at taking things to the limit of unconventionality and making it obscenely awesome.

Scarlet is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles and it took me ages to get my hands on a copy. So either it was really popular, or the book sellers here do not have any clue as to the calibre of story Meyer creates.

Little Red Riding Hood has never made me this excited. Red teams up with Wolf to save Grandma, and along the way her tale tangles with Cinder’s. Oh, what a twisted web they weave, but oh, how the web will grip you.

This is fast paced; full of action and adventure, you’ll be looking for book three, Cress, the moment you’ve read the last word on the final page. I promise.
