Scarlet By Marissa Meyer Review

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer is one of the most exciting, thrilling book I've ever read. There was some flaws, yes; but i overlook them because of how purely awesome this book it.

Scarlet- one of those badass heroine who is a "attack now, ask questions later" type of persons. She carries a gun! She is an alpha. She is brave. She is loyal to the people she loves. Wolf, you don't count until later in the book. Maybe the last 2 chapters? She loves her Grandmother dearly. She was willing to listen to someone (Wolf) who might be the enemy.

"Biting her lip, she reached forward, pulling his fingers away from the can. She found that the label had been shredded beneath his mindless fidgeting, 'Wolf, are you asking me to be... your alpha female?'
He hesitated...
'Alpha female.' he murmured. 'I sort of like that.'"

Wolf- ohhh! He is hot. Yeah, I know you might be rolling your eyes at this, but truly is he. It helps if you read "The Queen's Army" although it is not required. Wolf is The Alpha Wolf. He is an animal and a beast. Even though others may seem to see him as an vicious animal, he cares about Scarlet. It is obvious that he care if not love Scarlet.

"...with hair stuck out every direction in messy clumps...His eyes were unnaturally green..."

Cinder- ahhh! Cinder is back. Her usual self has appeared. I love Cinder. I love how her character changes. I feel like she was unsure about her motives until the very end. I love her determination.

Kai- Poor Kai! All that pressure from those (attacks) and other nations. Don't forget about that Lunatic Queen Bitch. In the end, I wanted to murder Kai. He PROPOSED to the EVIL QUEEN. Kai, I'm so disappointed in you. That was the one thing Cinder told you to not do.

Thorne- I mean, Captain Thorne. I love his attitude. He lights up a dark mood. All those little comments are just hilarious. He is a jester. He is just amazing. I love his character. I love his actions. This is one character I look forward to seeing in the next book.

And those are the 5 major characters.

  1. My reviews are so embarrassing in the beginning. Ah, well. Time does improve some things, I guess.
