A forbidden romance.
A deadly plague.
Earth's fate hinges on one girl . . .
CINDER, a gifted mechanic in New Beijing, is also a cyborg. She's reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's sudden illness. But when her life becomes entwined with the handsome Prince Kai's, she finds herself at the centre of a violent struggle between the desires of an evil queen - and a dangerous temptation.
Cinder is caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal. Now she must uncover secrets about her mysterious past in order to protect Earth's future.
This is not the fairytale you remember. But it's one you won't forget.
I give it - 5/5
My review - I had heard so many different opinions on this book that I thought I would give it a read and I'm so glad I did!
THIS IS A FANTASTIC STORY!!!
I absolutely loved this story, I couldn't stop talking about it once I finished it. (I also picked up Scarlet and Cress after I finished it, it had to be done.)
I really love this retake on Cinderella and how it takes so many different twist and turns from the original to make it, its own.
What I love about this is that Cinder is a cyborg, that's what drew me to this book and that it was also set in New Beijing. It's such a brilliant written story that you just want more and more from it.
Also the ending?! Well done to Marissa because that ending had be gripped and just WOW.
This story kept me guessing until the very end and that's what I love about books, and that is what Cinder did to me.
I really can't wait to continue on the rest of this series as I may have found a new favourite author.
If you haven't read Cinder then I suggest you go buy it because it is an amazing read!
