This book was incredible!!!
Adding a new fairy tale retelling while still continuing Cinder’s story was mind-blowing. I loved the introduction of Scarlet and Wolf. Some good and bad points about this book I found.

The Good:
Loved the retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.
Love how Scarlet (Red Riding Hood) keeps pulling a gun at Wolf.
The different characters POVs made this book ever better. I loved how you got the story from everyone and not just one character.
After reading this, I totally ship Scarlet + Wolf and Cinder + Thorne.
This book was a page-turner. Loved the twists on every page.

The Bad:
Character development was still slow and lacking.
Kai became a jerk. I cannot stand his character. I know he is trying to save his country, but he seriously needs a boost of courage.

The book was an excellent retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. Loved the plot twists in this book. It made an incredible second installment to this series.
