OK, this book is AWESOME. Fast-forward to the future: Cinder lives with her stepsisters and her horrible stepmother. Sounds like the classic fairy tale, right? Well, get ready for this: Cinder is a cyborg. And most everyone discriminates her for it. Cinder runs a mechanic booth in the central plaza of New Beijing, and one day Kai, the prince of New Beijing, comes to her booth undercover asking if Cinder could fix an important royal android. But will something more blossom between Cinder and Kai? Kai doesn't even know Cinder is a cyborg yet!! But then Kai's father, the emperor, dies of the fatal and contagious plague sweeping through New Beijing. Everything changes. Kai might have to marry Queen Levana of Luna, which is on the moon. Lunars have the power to brainwash people, and this is exactly what Kai doesn't want to happen. And Cinder is trying to find an antidote for the plague... but also finds out something game-changing about herself in the process! Can Kai and Cinder find their way through these troubled times? I love the writing style of this author, it really pulled me in! The plot was suspenseful, gripping, funny, emotional... you get the idea! I am so excited to read the second book! I loved this amazing spin on the classic fairytale, and I give this book 5 stars!!!
