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 desires 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.
Why I choose this book:
Most probably everyone has already read this series! But I found myself thinking about this one recently. I saw the series on someone’s blog (don’t remember where), and I just read her newer book Renegades. Right now I really want to reread this series, but I want to do it on audio, and my audiobook apps don’t have it..
I absolutely fell in love with this series when I picked it up years ago! It was so original, I loved the story and the characters. And I would love to read about them again!
