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've been procrastinating on reading this book until it became just down right ridiculous to keep putting it off. So with a little push, I picked up cinder and loved it! Cinder is this super feisty cyborg who happens to work as a mechanic in New Beijing. There also happens to be a certain handsome Prince and a deadly disease on the horizon, I'm just sayin'.

This books was so enjoyable that I had no issue with the predictability. It kept me engaged all the way through and just a fun read overall! But you might be asking yourself:


And no.

Like I said, there is this wonderful conflict happening to not only cinder but to the residents of New Beijing. The Lunars (Super hated by the earth people) have decided to come to earth for the first time ever. Catch is, The Lunar Queen is looking to snatch up Prince Kai and Earth all for her self. There's also this scary disease that has affected and killed many of the residents. So, If you're looking for a good mixture of genres done well, then this is your book!

If you are procrastinating reading Cinder like I was, Then I'm telling you to drop what you are doing and READ THE IT. Do it, now.
