Summary

The first instalment of The Lunar Chronicles - a futuristic reenvisioning of Cinderella in which Cinder is a cyborg mechanic.

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 fairy tale you remember. But it's one you won't forget.

Great fun!

Such a fun story! A great sci fi twist on a familiar tale.

To begin with I found the narrator's voice a bit grating but I got used to it quickly and she actually gave a great performance.

Very exciting and I can't wait to hear more.

Fun Sci fi retelling of the Cinderella fairytale

I'm not usually into science fiction but I do love fairytale retellings so I wanted to give The Lunar Chronicles a try as they're hugely popular among YA readers online. I did enjoy the new twist on the old story, it's completely different to any other retelling I've ever come across, so it was fun to see where it differed and what was the same as the original. I'd recommend this book if you love fairytales and modern retellings, the Sci fi elements aren't too difficult to pick up even if you never read the genre, and the world building is first class. I'm looking forward to book two.

new version

I love this version of Cinderella. I was hesitant to get it due to I'm not the biggest fan of Cinderella. But this book is worth buying!
