This is the first book in the Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer. I read the hardcover book which is 400 pages long.
Cinder is a take on the fairy tale Cinderella, set in a futuristic world where aliens and cyborgs are a normal thing. A plague has spread over the land and when someone Cinder loves gets it, she is forced into the hands of scientists that would do tests on her to find a cure.
But she makes a few friends and discovers much more about the Lunar people than she thought. She risks her life to save those she cares for and ends up discovering her own hidden secret in the process.
At first I wasn't sure I was going to like this story. I'm more of a fairies and dragons fantasy lover, but I thought I would give it a try. It was written really well and pulled me in pretty quick.
I think the twist of it being based on an old fairy tale was really cool. It's not an exact retelling, which I love. It has it's own twists and turns.
I will definitely be reading the next book.
