The first book in the #1 New York Times- and USA Today-Bestselling Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer! See where the futuristic YA fairytale saga all began, with the tale of a teenage cyborg who must fight for Earth's survival against villains from outer space.

"An interesting mash up of fairy tales and science fiction . . . a cross between Cinderella, Terminator, and Star Wars." --Entertainment Weekly

"Prince Charming among the cyborgs." --The Wall Street Journal

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a 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.

With high-stakes action and a smart, resourceful heroine, Cinder is a Cinderella retelling that is at once classic and strikingly original.

"This series opener and debut offers a high coolness factor by rewriting Cinderella as a kickass mechanic in a plague-ridden future." --Kirkus Reviews on Cinder

"First in the Lunar Chronicles series, this futuristic twist on Cinderella retains just enough of the original that readers will enjoy spotting the subtle similarities. But debut author Meyer's brilliance is in sending the story into an entirely new, utterly thrilling dimension." --Publishers Weekly, starred review for Cinder

"There's a lot of moving parts in this fresh spin on 'Cinderella, ' the first in a four-book series." --Booklist on Cinder

"Singing mice and glass slippers are replaced with snarky androids and mechanical feet in this richly imagined and darkly subversive retelling of 'Cinderella.'" --The Bulletin on Cinder

A new take on the Sci-Fi genre as it melds Steampunk and reimagined fairy tales. Meyer is a great YA novellist and if you enjoy Sci-Fi and YA, you will love this.

An enchanting adventure - Loved every page

I LOVED this book. It's been a while since I was so enthralled by a concept, the world, the characters and the story. The plot has unexpected turns which keeps you totally engaged, the characters and world are wonderfully flawed. I was pleasantly surprised by how entertaining this book and series are. I would recommend for anyone over the age of 13 who'd like an easy to read series with a mixture of fairy tale and science fiction.

Sci-Fi Fairytales are THE BEST

5

Good mix of science fiction and fantasy. Nice hints of romance [but it doesn't overwhelm the story]. The characters are engaging and it builds a very interesting world, setting up for a very good series. A couple parts were slightly predictable [might be because of my familiarity with the original story though]. However there was enough other unexpected things that it didn't ruin the reading experience at all, it was still thoroughly enjoyable. I can't wait to read the next book!
