Cinder, is a teenaged cyborg mechanic in New Beijing. She lives with her step-mother who hates her. Cinder is a classic Cinderella story with a modern twist. When you’re the best mechanic in the city, it’ll bring some interesting customers such as Prince Kai. When he walks into her shop everything changes.

I loved Cinder oh so much! It was an amazing  new take on a classic story, I’ve never read anything like it. The story didn’t just pull you in, it sucked you in head first and the whirlpool that was Cinder. You were hooked until the very last word.  Cinder’s story was a breath taking one of self discovery, adventure,  love, and the battle to stay true to who you are. The cyborg thing is a little hard to grasp at first, but soon after some well written explanation I got it.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes sci-fi. All ages, and both genders would enjoy Cinder because it isn’t just about love, it is about more than that. Plus it’s got aliens. Who doesn’t love aliens?
