Scarlet, by Marissa Meyer

This second book in The Lunar Chronicles reimagines the story of Little Red Riding Hood, complete with a Big Bad Wolf who turns out to not be so bad after all. This installment is as engaging as the first, though I found it to be a little heavy on the action. Scarlet's story is intermixed with the continuation of Cinder's, with the entire book taking place over only one or two days. It's 400 pages of pure action, which is exhilarating, no doubt, but a bit much. The first book had a more even pace, periods of action alternating comfortably with more sedate sections. But it's still a great story, and I can't wait to read the third book!
