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.
If cinderella were a cyborg and something else...I wasn't expecting the other counterpart but it was indeed quite a great disguise.
There's a lot of hype surrounding this book and this series.Super grateful for the audiobook edition I tuned to it fast enough vs. me physically reading multi tasking success yey! there are some annoying parts that feels like forever. Cinder's not your typical girl afterall haha!
As for character development there's nothing much besides the romance. Anyway, the story took quite an interesting turn and Kai took it impressively well. Cinder got mad skills I hope she succeeds.Overall 3 out of 5 stars!
