Discussed September 2013 - YA Dystopian Fantasy

Comment by: LocketLibrarian Jul 31, 2012

Great start to series. Fast paced with a great heroine.

Had the book had an actual ending, and had Cinder put the details together a little faster, it would have been a 5.

I liked it. It's a really cool sci-fi twist on Cinderella. It works well with me because I love sci-fi as well as fairytales.

Great concept, plot, and writing but it was a little predictable and cliché. Other than that it's definitely worth reading.

I love reading and I do it all the time to! So, when everybody at my school kept talking about this book I just had to see what all the fuss was about. I am soooooo glad I read this. A surprising twist to a classic fairytale. After I read the first book I found myself dragged into their world and had to keep going. Once I finished the third book and found out that the fourth wasn't coming out till next year.... well, I kinda flipped. it was just SO good. If you haven't read this then you're crazy and something's wrong. (JK! :)) You have to read this!!!

Cinder is really just Cinderella with a Sci-Fi/Steam punk kind of twist. It involves techy droids, the plauge, future sci-fi, and fairy tales all twisted together for a unique spin!

“Kai shrugged and turned to Cinder. His eyes softened a little with a polite bow of his head. “I hope our paths will cross again.”

“Really? In that case, I guess I’ll keep following you.”

I am a cyborg.
I am mechanic.
That's all I am... right?”

His eyebrows rose, his blue eyes sucking in all the light of the room. "The cybernetic operation?"

"No, the sex change."

The doctor's smile faltered.

"I'm joking."
