Scarlet is Book Two of the Lunar Chronicles Series. This series, while not strictly a romance series, is a high-quality romance-friendly crossover, and its inventive steampunk/science fiction twists on fairy tales make it a must-read for genre fans. I enjoyed the world-building and the twists on fairy tales. I do recommend that readers read the first book, Cinder, before reading Scarlet. Cinder is the book that sets events in motion, and frankly, I think is a stronger book overall, although both books are compelling.
