GoodReads Summary:
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 amm completely enthralled by this world Marissa Meyer created with this debut novel! The characters, the background, the description; absolutely lovely! A totally new and exciting take on Cinderella for me and I loved it. I'm saddened that this will be a quartet because I have to wait for another year before I can read the next book, but I most definitely will be reading the rest of this series and hopefully many more novels by Miss Marissa Meyer
