Cinder (Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer

Book Description: Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, the 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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Review: The book was very good, it had amazing characters and a very interesting plot. I mean a Cinderella Cyborg? Where did the author come up with that? Awesome Blossom. Cinder is a Cinderella story told in the future. It has a lot of twists with the queen and prince Kia which made me not want to put it down. But then it got towards the ending and i was like? WTF? I did not like the ending at ALL! After i finished reading it i found out that this is only book one in the series, but i didn't really want to read the next book. I might though. Let me make this clear. This is just my opinion. Just because a review said they disliked the book doesn't mean you will. But i personally just didn't like the way Kia treated Cinder at the ending even after all they had been through. The next book in the series is more about Cinder finding more info about her past. The only reason i chose this book was for the romance and really it didn't have any. I will give it a 3 out of 5 stars because i liked the rest of the book except the ending. The next book Scarlet will be out in 2013 i think.
