Cinder by Marissa Meyer description:
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.
I absolutely loved this book… I really liked that even without being told, you can see that it’s a Cinderella story… but Meyer still made this her own book… it wasn’t just hitting it on the nose… but more like a “ah I see what you did there”… the nice little hints that are fun to catch in amidst this science fiction world… this isn’t just about some girl trying to get her shot to go to the ball… this is about a cyborg, Cinder, who is trying to just survive in a world that doesn’t like cyborgs… she’s trying to fix a robot for the prince that has hidden information on it, when she’s not being sold off to help find a cure for the plague that has taken her little step sister… the only human that has befriended her… or trying to hide from the Lunar Queen who would want to kill her… all while planning her escape from the city that is turning more hostile to her by the second… it’s exciting, funny, and with one twist after the next… I can’t wait to get the next book to see how it’ll all turn out…
