As the best mechanic in New Beijing, Cinder knows how to build and fix almost everything—except how to stop more people from finding out that she is actually a cyborg and has very few rights and privileges under the law. When Prince Kai comes to ask for her help in repairing an android who has secret information that could solve earth’s political problems with the Lunars, she is thrown into a world where she is trying to help solve a diplomatic crisis, prevent the prince from finding out that she is a cyborg, and is used as an experiment to find the cure to the mysterious plague that has threatened the life of the king and Cinder’s stepsister. In her efforts to protect herself, her stepsister, and Prince Kai, she uncovers secrets about her own mysterious past and learns she might be more important ant to the survival of earth than she had expected. In the end, she escapes from the evil queen of Luna and begins her own revolt against the queen’s plans to control both earth and Kai.

The major twist is obvious from the beginning, and many elements of the plot can be easily guessed as the reader is expecting the tale of Cinderella, but the unique twists set it apart in both futuristic stories and fairy tale retellings even though the predictability can be a little distracting at times. The characters are fun, particularly the android packed with so much personality that you forget she’s not quite human. Cinder doesn’t always make the right choices, but she learns from her mistakes and tries to do what is right even when she has made errors. Some questions aren’t quite answered (like how much of Cinder is programmed or real), and it would have been nice to have more of a Chinese setting for New Beijing or an explanation why it isn’t as much of a Chinese culture as you might expect. In spite of the weaknesses, for anyone who loves fairy tale retellings and is looking for a new approach, Cinder and the rest of the Lunar Chronicles will be a delightful read. ( )

“I am not human.
I am a cyborg.
I am mechanic.
That's all I am... right?”
― Marissa Meyer, Cinder


I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you.
Cinder is an orphan girl and a cyborg who is a well known mechanic in the common wealth. She lives with her step-mother and two step-sisters. When her youngest step-sister gets sick with the plague that has been affecting her people. Her step-mother sends her off to be a cyborg test subject in search for a cure. Normally a death sentence, but in a twist of fate Cinder slowly discovers that there is more to her than meets the eye.

In his search to find the lost lunar princess, who is the only one who could take the thrown from the queen. He meets Cinder. He finds himself interested and attracted to her and asks her to the upcoming ball. But Kai doesn't know she's cyborg.

So I this was a reread. I read the whole series a while back, but its been long enough that the book still surprised me. I loved it, and for this reread I went with the audio version. The narrator was wonderful and I will continue the audio for the rest of my series reread. This book is a Cinderella retelling. I generally love retelling but not so much scifi retellings. This series is the exception. It was so well done that the scifi in it adds to the story. This book is easily a 5 star. The book ends on a bit of cliffhanger so it leaves you really wanting more. The audio is 10 hours long and I found myself looking for reasons to listen to the book instead of reading one of my others.
How I choose my rating:
1* Did not finish, or hated it but forced myself to finish.
2** Didn't really like it. Didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other then for some closure.
3*** I liked it. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread again ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series. (If part of one) But if not it's not a huge loss.
4**** I really liked this book. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this again, and I will finish the series. (If part of one) I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this books content.
5***** I loved this book. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will definitely be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. (If part of one) I will recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!

teen fiction; cyborg cinderella (sci-fi adventure/romance). Enjoyable and a refreshing, quick read--plus, it's different enough from all the other dystopian books out right now so that you don't get confused. ( )

The further I got in this, I became more intrigued with the concept's possibilities and more disinterested in the actual plot. I'm not rushing to pick up the next installment, but it remains a possibility. ( )

A sci-fi Cinderella story in which Cinderella is a cyborg mechanic trying to help her prince deal with a devastating, incurable plague and the looming threat of a powerful and ruthless queen. Fantastic writing, fantastic world-building! The only thing I didn’t like was the ending; I wish there had been some sort of resolution for at least one of the conflicts, instead of leaving everything loose. That said, I can’t wait to read the rest of the series! ( )
