**spoiler alert** Ok, so I've heard a lot of people saying the same thing's I was saying before I read this. "ANOTHER Cinderella story, really?" or "I'm really not that into sci-fi". Well, I'm here to tell you to try to get over it and give this book a shot. To be completely honest I wouldn't have looked twice at this book except it was one of the book of the months for a group I'm in. I was pleasantly surprised.
Obviously everybody knows the story of Cinderella, so giving a summary is pretty much pointless.
there are many similarities between this story and the ones we're all
familiar with; evil step-mother and sister, father dead while she was
young, treated like dirt. There are also many differences. Main among
them being the whole cyborg issue. As a cyborg not only is Cinder
mistreated by her family but also by the whole community. Cyborgs are
discriminated against to the point where children aren't allowed to play
in the street near her.
Another huge difference is that we
don't get to see the happily ever after. Instead we see Prince Kai
disgusted that he could have had feelings with not only a cyborg but a
Lunar. My oh my, but where and how will this story end? As the story
ends on an obvious cliffhanger, we are left to wonder how Cinder will
escape her prison, whether she will be able to dethrone the queen of
Luna. I will definitely be watching for the next book.
