Publisher's Summary

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl....

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. 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.

    This story threw me and it was awesome. The whole series is fun and enchanting. These books are not dark, like a lot of fiction/fantasy novels, so that was a nice change of pace.

    Story
    "Playful with a bit of suspense"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A riveting story that combines an old story line in a new futuristic era.


    What did you like best about this story?

    No matter when we live past present or future, there continue to be villans and heros. Ms. Meyer brings them both to life. The charming prince, the poor down trodden girl, the wicked step mother and sisters, and even an evil Queen. But in spite of all her handicaps, Cinder rises above the obstacles. The hero and the reader can see her true worth. I love the suspense; Will Cinder go to the ball? Will anyone find out her secrets? What will happen between Cinder and the Prince? What will happen to those who befriend her?

    But lest you think the storyline juvenile, Ms. Meyer adds humorous bits of sarcasm and irony to the story.

    I forgot the world for the time I was reading...


    Which character – as performed by Rebecca Soler – was your favorite?

    Ms. Soler moves from one voice to another with ease. I will definitely be looking for more narrations from her!

    "A Real Page Turner"

    Ok. Not really, but I really was hooked. I usually struggle to stay awake while driving and this story really kept me awake. The narrator did a great job. I look forward to the next book.

    "Great book for all ages!! "

    Loved the first book of the series. I was able to listen to it through the day with my 7 and 9 year old in and out of the room. They were as excited to see what was next as I did.

    "Great light read"

    I loved the reader's voice, great performance.
    The story was nice, I appreciate how different Cinder is from Cinderella, while still maintaining the same theme.

    Story
    "Cute but not thrilling"

    I listen to mostly fantasy and science fiction books. This one was not produced or directed as well so not a thrilling listen, however the story was pretty good and if you've consisted reading the series is recommend picking it up. worth the listen.

    Any additional comments?

    The only reason I downloaded this book was because I knew I would get a refund once I realized it was a huge golden turd. Then I started listening, and the narrators voice had me on the cusp of stopping. But then an odd thing happened, I was listening and I found myself chuckling out loud... while I was at work! Although this book is obviously geared toward the young-adult, (Twilight) generation, and there was some serious pandering to the "Im a misunderstood wallflower who is waiting for her prince to come along and see the hidden jewel that I am on the inside" genre, there wasn't so much nonsense that I wanted to roll my eyes every five minuets. The plot was pretty predictable but was still interesting enough for me to keep following along. The storyline was a combination of fairy tale and sci-fi, and melded together in a way that felt like an old familiar friend but one you had not seen in a year or two and now has purple hair. I will be reading the next book as soon as my credits are renewed.
