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.
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?”
"Prince Kai! Check my fan, I think I'm overheating."
"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'm sure I'll feel much more grateful when I find a guy who thinks complex wiring in a girl is a turn-on."
"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.
"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
"You are Princess Selene" -Dr. Erland
"It was not her fault he had liked her.
It was not her fault she was cyborg.
She would not apologize."
