Cinder – by Marissa Meyer

Cinder2Cinder is the first book in The Lunar Chronicles quartet by Marissa Meyer, retelling and reimagining fairy tales beginning with that of Cinderella. It’s an intriguing concept, and this title had been on my radar for a while. Here’s how I found Meyer’s modern-day, grim tale:

In a lot of ways, Cinder’s just a normal girl. In a lot of ways, she’s not at all. For starters, she’s a cyborg – part human, part machine. This means she’s technically the property of her stepmother, who never fails to remind Cinder of the fact. She’s also an extremely talented mechanic, with a knack for fixing things deemed irreparable.

Cinder had no idea how far her reputation had spread, until the day Prince Kai comes to her for a delicate fix he can’t trust to anyone but the best. Cinder is drawn not only to Kai’s secretive quest and political concerns, but also to his magnetic personality. For his part, Kai seems just as fascinated by Cinder. But how could anyone, much less a Prince, love the part human Cinder, with secrets even she doesn’t know she keeps? I’ve Been Dreaming of a True Love’s Kiss:
