MY SUMMARY: Scarlet at a young age moved to her grandmothers farm where they grew the most delicious vegetables in Rieux, France. Recently her world gets turned upside down when her grandmother who she believes she knows gets kidnapped.  Leaving behind secrets and her grandmothers identification tag.  Along the way she meets up with a mysteries man who is known as wolf.  Will she be able to find her grandmother?  How will her life impact Cinder’s?  Mean while with the help of Dr. Erland new bionic arms and legs Cinder finds herself escaping jail.  Will she be able to discover her past in order to heal so you will be able to make a decision for the future?

MY REVIEW:  I enjoyed the first book of this series so much that I could not wait to read the second book.  It was another book that did not disappoint.  I was happy to read that Cinder’s story continued while trying to tell Scarlets story.  Little by little you seeing how each character that Cinder meets how their lives have effect hers.  At the end these characters are going to be able to help her out because just on her own she would of not be able to survive and possible defeat Levana.
