I loved this book. You should read it. Don't mind the girly cover, everyone who isn't a girly girl.

When is book 4 coming out?

This is one of my favorite books of all time! It is a very interesting twist on Cinderella, a classic tale, and also provokes thoughts on the future. I recommend this series to anyone who likes action, fantasizing about the future, epidemics, humor, a twinge of romance, and big identity reveals. It is the kind of book that makes you stay up until 4 in the morning, because you can't go to sleep without knowing what happens next. I do not recommend starting it in the evening. But you should still read it.

A fun amalgam of Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel (so far). Easy-to-love (or hate) characters and a wonderfully fun take on the stories. Looking forward to reading the next ones.

Very cool sci-fi twist on an original fairy tale. I must say I really didn't like Cinderella in the original story, but here it empowers Cinder and gives her a strong personality and raises my hopes for the girls in the rest of the series.

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.

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!

Linh Cinder is a hardworking mechanic in New Beijing, but it's hard to get ahead when you have no legal rights. Because Cinder is a cyborg, she is considered the property of her bitter stepmother, who takes Cinder's earnings for her own daughters. A chance encounter with the prince, and a chance encounter with the plague, change Cinder's life forever, plunging her into a world of political intrigue. The Queen of the Moon wants to control the Earth, and somehow, she holds the secret of Cinder's forgotten past.

“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 not human.
I am a cyborg.
I am mechanic.
That's all I am... right?”

"Cinder twisted up her lips. "Do you think it could have a virus?"

"Maybe her programming was overwhelmed by Prince Kai's uncanny hotness."

"I don't know. I don't actually remember anything from before the surgery."

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."

"You really think Adri's going to let me go now just because I can buy my own dress now? She would probably tear it off me and try to resell the buttons." -Linh Cinder
