Scarlet by Moira Young – Review

5 of 5 stars

Another superb offering from Ms Young.  In Cinder she twisted the cinderella story and this one twists Red Riding Hood.  I cannot wait to find out what Cress and Winter bring to this magical contemporary fairytale series.
In this book we are introduced to a new character, Scarlet, based on Little Red Riding Hood, and possesses a red hoodie to keep in character.  While it also features a wolf and she has to rescue her grandmother who has been captured, her father does not come to the rescue… and you won’t be disappointed when you find out what happens (much).
Cinder gets to grips with her new identity – being Lunar and being the missing Princess – while trying to stay one step ahead of both the Lunar and Earth authorities.
Meanwhile the new Emperor has to find a way to prevent Queen Levana from declaring war on earth.
We swing back and forth from each of the main characters’ POV in a way that does not make you dizzy and keeps the timeline in check.

About Bea Turvey apprentice author and witch

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write, I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2017 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you liked it - or even why not!
