Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . .
Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.
Cinder is an amazing book, I've heard that time and again but I finally got the chance to read it this week. Well ok, really I got the day to read it, because I was so intrigued by the story once I started it I could not put this book down.
A futuristic Cinderella story, a woman even more abandoned than the original Cinderella, a Prince with a life we finally get to glimpse. What here is not to love!
I give major kudos to Marissa Meyer as the author who made the Step-Sisters, not the typical drones, Each had a different personality and I loved it. Really all of the characters were amazing and detailed and I felt like I really knew something of their lives. When you add in threats of war from another planet. Ruling leaders who quite honestly scare me before I even meet them and a new emperor who is just not quite sure how to balance on the beam of his new life you have a fantastically spun tale. I am thrilled that this book is a series and cannot wait for book two! Until I can get my hands in it I'll spend my time dreaming of the future I want to see for Cinder!
This book is to dang good to not pass on, so that I will do!
