Cinder by Marissa Meyer


Summary: 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

Rad Review: It would be an understatement to say I loved this book. TOTALLY EPIC people! I admit the first time the cover caught my eye I wasn't to impressed. It looked like some goth romance thing so I totally ignored it.  Then it kept showing up. Darn you Goodreads Ads. :D But I will forgive you. So I finally went to the page and read what it was about...and so forth. I was hooked. Again, the ads continued. Drove me nuts. Into serious hyperventilation. 

So when I found out it was released I hurriedly opened my library website and put the first hold on it. I got it from the library and finished it the next day. At 11:52pm. I was not going to go to bed until I finished. When you first hear the idea it's a little strange (except in my case it totally seemed awesome). But the world just...worked! Marissa did a fabulous job with it.

Kai. EEEP!  The awesome thing about him was that not only was he hot but I really felt more about him. He wasn't just the "cute guy who the girl falls in love with". He felt like a real character. Cinder totally rocked as the MC, Loved it. Marissa's writing was great for a debut author. I think it can definitely improve as well. Plus somethings about the story telling could have been gone over more.  But over all. Fabo. Welcome to the World Marissa. And Cinder. :D Can't wait to see what happens in Scarlet!
