"Wolf, are you asking me to be . . . your alpha female?"

Scarlet - Marissa Meyer

Great book, I was engrossed in it from the beginning. Cinder is on the run and looking for answers. She finds some help from an unexpected source, one "Captain" Carswell Thorne.  Cinder learns some amazing things about her time before moving to the Commonwealth.  A few new characters join Cinder, Scarlet is far stronger than anyone gives her credit. It's this strength that leads her to follow a scary stranger to find her grandmother. Wolf is scary, mysterious and very sad. For reasons Scarlet doesn't know she trusts Wolf, even when commonsense says she shouldn't. Cinder's search brings her right to Scarlet and the Queen's army. Exciting sequel and as before ends with the need to get my hands on Cress.
