Not your traditional fairy tale. While the name and basic story line takes you back to your childhood fairy tales, Cinder is far from the pumpkin coach and Fairy Godmother. Unlike the traditional tale, this one takes place in a technologically advanced society. Cinder, part "human" and part cyborg doesn't need a fairy Godmother to take care of her, she manages just fine herself-catching the eye of the prince, even though she doesn't want it. She gets herself into some rather sticky situations...and is resourceful enough to get out of them.
