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.

{My Thoughts} – This book is about a young girl named {Linh Cinder}. She is a {cyborg/human}. She has feelings and thoughts just like humans do however she is classified as being less then human as being nothing but someone else’s property. She has a run in with {Prince Kai} and he and her begin to get to know each other. Eventually he gets up the nerve to ask her out on a date. However, she doesn’t tell him she is a {cyborg}. The book goes through her trial and error of trying to accept herself, of wanting him to understand and accept her for who she is and of wanting to run away and forget about everything she has ever known. She has a lot of spunk, a lot of determination and can be rather emotional. It’s a really nice book that is well written with a different take on the whole {Cinderella fairy-tale stories}. If you enjoy reading different takes on {fairy-tales} then I am certain you will enjoy this book.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
