This series is adorable. I’m not sure how else to put it- but it’s come a long way and been a pleasant surprise. I love where it’s going! In general- it’s not a super emotional series so far, but I’m definitely invested in Cinder’s journey throughout the books.
Obviously this book brings in a new main character based off of Red Riding Hood. I liked Scarlet and her story- and Wolf was alright. I don’t think I was as connected to her story as I was Cinder’s – but it was still fun to try and figure out everything that was going to happen in comparison to the original fairy tale.
Ok but obviously the thing I want to talk about the most is Thorne. (Hence my endless status updates about him…)
I’m pretty sure this is his face EVERY time he meets a female…
All my friends LOVE him and I totally see why. Dude is freaking hilarious. He’s the most shameless flirt I think I’ve ever read about, save Nikolai Lansov (Grisha Trilogy). Not to mention he’s a complete diva. With dimples just FYI. So basically he’s endless entertainment. I’m excited to see what happens when he inevitably meets Cress!
Anyway this series has come a long way from what I expected. Some of the plot (the part that exists around the fairy tale retelling) can be a bit predictable, but it still has some pretty decent twists- and the characters are entertaining. I’m pretty stoked about book 3!
