This one just wasn’t as good and action packed as Cinder…
I loved Cinder once I got to the halfway point and found myself racing through it after then but this one was the complete opposite. I think I began it in a slump and I did try reading it hard copy first but I struggled through it. And so I what I usually do at this point if possible, turn to audiobooks. I managed to get through this book via the audiobook but it never got any more interesting for me.
I was much more a fan of Cinder and her story than Scarlet. Scarlet just was kinda boring and I did not like her as a character. Her insta-love with Wolf was also kind of annoying and I never really liked him as a character at all.
This one failed to be as enchanting and exciting as Cinder was. It was hard to care about Scarlet’s story as it was super uninteresting. I found myself way more interested in Kai’s chapters than anything else. Even Cinder seemed off in this one and I wasn’t that interested in her parts either. I’ve always liked Kai and seeing how he deals with his position and the politics revolving around him and Levana. I don’t know why the other characters seemed off but they did and I think that’s the main reason why this one wasn’t above a 3 for me.
