This was a highly enjoyable second book which was refreshing because often second books disappoint me. Cinder breaks out of prison (I love how this girl keeps saving herself and taking action rather than just moaning and complaining about how tough her life is), but takes a fellow inmate with her.

Meanwhile the Commonwealth has figured out that Cinder is awol and is determined to either shoot her, or kill her. She has to be captured or the prince will have to face the wrath of the Queen Levana, who wishes him ill will.
