Cinders (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer

by admin -

I wanted to read Cinder after reading Marissa Meyer Heartless book as I really enjoyed the different side to the classic fairytale. Cinder is the first book in the Lunar series which is a retelling of the fairy tale Cinderella. This Cinder is a lot more interesting in this story as she is a cyborg who works as a mechanic to earn her keep within her Legal Guardian family. In the Disney Cinderella, Cinderella has two evil stepsister and in this story she is lucky that one of her stepsister is nice and cares for her. 

The story is based in New Beijing where the country is battle which a plague and trying to work out a peace treaty with the Lunar Queen who rules the Moon with the power to control the people around her. Cinder world is turned upside down when the prince of the Commonwealth Kai comes to her to fix his Android and the plague hit close to home. Cinder finds out that she is more than just a Cyborg mechanic and now has to decided between freedom and helping the world.

I really like Marissa Meyer writing style its is easy for me to read with a nice flow with the story. The story builds and builds drawing you more and more into the book and this amazing modern fairytale.  Anyone that like the show Once upon a time or Grimm should gives this book I go.

I have book two Scarlet read and waiting for me to read. I wanted to see what happens next for Cinder and the newly crown Emperor Kai.

I give this book 4 out of 5.
