Published: January 3rd 2012


A forbidden romance.
A deadly plague.
Earth's fate hinges on one girl...

Cinder, a gifted mechanic in New Beijing, is also a cyborg. She's reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's sudden illness. But when her life becomes entwined with the handsome Prince Kai's she finds herself at the centre of a violent struggle between the desired of an evil queen--and a dangerous temptation.

Cinder is caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal. Now she must uncover secrets about her mysterious past in order to protect Earth's future.

This is not the fairytale you remember.
But it's one you won't forget.

*Luna means the moon.

Hell yeah, this is not the normal fairytale i remember but hell yeah this is one i will remember for my whole life.

W-O-W. Superb. Excellent. Priceless. Mindblowingjawdropping and a lot more. There's more from where that came from. I've wrote all of these words to describe Cinder but it's not enough. Even a thousand words can't describe Cinder.

After you have read this book you'll just be speechless. Trust me on this one. When i finished reading this book, by the way did i tell you i read this book in a day. Yep. That's right fellow readers you heard it right. One day. One day. One day! When i started this book i could NOT put it down. I did NOT go to sleep; i did NOT eat until i finished it; i did NOT even go to the toilet! And it all went to a priceless, once-in-a-lifetime read. Satisfaction. Satisfaction is sweet!

Marissa is an amazing author. I have become an official fan of Marissa. I love how she unraveled the plot. Cinder, the savor and the only hope for the future mankind. Emperor Kai, rebels between duty and freedom. Queen Levena, the Queen to the Lunars and the destroyer to the Earthens and last not but the least. The plague; Letumosis. Which scientists has no answer and are still looking for a cause and cure.

The book starts with Cinder in her mechanic shop and then 'pop' for some reason Prince Kai is there. Wow. *shock*, my jaw drops to the floor. Oh, wow the prince is here! I mean, why wouldn't the heir to the crown just walk about and say hi to his citizens where there is a chance that he might catch the deadly plague? Nope, a normal prince, heir to the throne wouldn't do that! And with this i was sucked into the fairy tale but not fairy tale that Marissa has made. Prince Kai wants Cinder to fix an android that he prizes-people, keep a eye on that android because it's one of the most important things in the plot. And that's where their relationship starts for Kai and Cinder. Next, you find out that Cinder is immune to the plague. *Breathe in, breathe out* another shock that will make your heart skip some beats, Then, when the Emperor has died Prince Kai becomes the Emperor. Oh, but wait. What is this i read?! Queen Levana has landed on Earth and has gave Emperor Kai a flask of the antidote for the plague.

From that Cinder has to save the world from Queen Lavena and the deadly plague which has killed a millions of innocent lives and the story unravels by itself...

But, believe me when i say this there are still more surprises in the book than here that i have written. It will make your heart stop. For sure...


Cinder- I love Cinder's character. I mean come on who wouldn't love a half human, half cyborg in New Beijing, plus on top of that the best mechanic in New Beijing. Cinder lives with her stepmother, Adri and her two stepsisters, Pearl and Peony; Pearl is a spoilt brat and Peony is the nicest out of Adri and Pearl.

Prince Kai or should i say Emperor Kai- Kai is the man that Cinder likes. Prince Kai is the heir to the crown and is fond of Cinder than anyone. But man you need to make a move on Cinder 'cause you ain't gonna start a relationship just like that, boy.

Queen Levana- Boy, does she give me the creeps. She's the queen of the Lunar which is the moon. She wants to marry Kai fo the money and wants to rule over the Earthens.

The only draw back was the romance in the book. I mean come on there was only one kiss through out the whole book and it was only because Cinder wanted to save Earth from that with--Lavena--and it was only in front of million of people in the royal people! If there was more romance it could have made the book go up to another level. However, i still think this book is AWESOME!!!

Therefore, in my opinion i highly recommend this book-Cinder-the first installment in the Lunar Chronicles to every YA reader. Cinder has made me hooked me throughout the whole book by its own unique way of re-telling a fairytale and how it is out of the normal thinking box.

Hell yeah, this is not the normal fairytale i remember but hell yeah this is one i will remember for my whole life.
