Synopsis: 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.

Review: HOLY COW. This book was absolutely worth the hype. If you're looking for a modern take on a common fairy tale then you've found one. Even though Cinder is based on the classic tale of Cinderella it is still a completely original idea with the integration of Cyborgs and a deadly illness. Marissa Meyer is an amazing author and I love her style. Although the plot twist was still very predicable, I thoroughly enjoyed Cinder. I'm actually surprised it took me this long to read this book because I love modern takes on fairy tales. I highly recommend it and can't wait until I can get my hands on the sequel!
