Main Idea: HOLY SMOKES THIS BOOK IS EPIC. A fairy-tale retelling of Cinderella with a cyborg as the main character equals FANTASTIC READING.
Guys, this book was SO SO good. First of all, I think it is important to know what a cyborg actually is, because I had to look this up like 30 pages into the book. I thought a cyborg was JUST a machine... so I was so confused on how she was having feelings and thinking like a real person. Well, come to find out, a cyborg is part human AND part machine. Blew my mind.
While this book has parallels to the fairytale of Cinderella, that does not mean this book is predictable.. at ALL. I was pretty much shocked and excited the whole time I was reading it. The twists and turns are awesome. And we all know how much I love twists and turns :)
We really only get to know Cinder in this book, though. There aren't many secondary characters that really stand out. But, guess what?! This is a trilogy! So, that I'm sure we will get to know prince Kai and all of our other characters a little bit better :)
Okay, so go pick this book up now please!
