Cinder is the first in the Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer, a dystopian young adult series. Set in New Beijing, this is a Cinderella story retelling – with a twist. Our protagonist Cinder is not your average girl, in fact, she’s not a girl at all, she’s a Cyborg. After a terrible accident at the age of eleven, Cinder was left part human, part machine; but her history is shrouded in mystery and there are secrets to be uncovered.
When Prince Kai of New Beijing visits a mechanic’s workshop seeking the city’s best mechanic, he finds Cinder, not at all what he was expecting. Little did they know that this meeting would irrevocably change both of their lives and they’d find themselves in the middle of an intergalactic struggle. VIEW STORY »
