Cinder is a teenage cyborg whose guardian (aka stepmother) is as self-centered and hateful as any wicked queen of yore. While working as a mechanic in the weekly market, Cinder is visited by the Prince Kai who is in disguise and needs an android that holds sensitive information repaired. Thus sparks a series of events that will change Cinder's very existence and rewrite everything she thought she knew about herself and her place in the world.
Marissa Meyer has written an unique, fully imagined debut novel that will have the techs and the romantics out there on pins and needles. While Meyer's world is fully realized and rich with detail, those elements do not weigh down the tale which is essentially a reboot of the classic Cinderella tale. As the cover art suggests, this is a novel full of futuristic technology but is balanced by both the action and romantic elements of the story. Cinder takes off at a brisk pace before sprinting to the end leaving readers anxiously waiting for the next novel in the series Scarlet due out in 2013. Personally, I can't wait for the next novel!
