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.

    "Fantastic twist on a classic tale,Mature,Engaging."

    Cinderm This is a classic tale written clevery with a high tech twist. To say it is engaging is understatement. Everyone knows the story of cinderella, but Meyer gets all of the detail in there, including the, the prince at the ball, and the fariy godmother, in a way you could not discern or predict even while you are reading [in my case listening]. Some of the invention is clever, some of it is completely off the wall. Good read, but be aware of the fact that once you are hooked, you will want to read the follow ons: Scarlett [little red...], Cress [Rapunzel], and Winter [Snow W.]. Each of them are every bit as engaging as this book, and the series - for those who enjoy a little fantasy in there life - is a great set of books. If you wanted to be one of J.K. Rowlings house elfs, if you felt divergent - and wanted to be in dauntless next to Tris, if you wanted to catch fire with Katness, well..., this is where it starts for Prince Ky, and a Cyborg named Cinder.

    "Original concept, excellent execution"

    This is one of the most original concepts in modern Sci Fi that I have encountered in a while. It is most definitely "chic lit" in the sense that it is character driven, with female characters and a fair bit of concern for emotional and romantic pursuits, but at the same time, the tech and science of the world is front and center in a way that reminds me a little bit of Neal Stephenson's older works like Diamond Age or Snow Crash.

    The title character, Cinder, is so fabulously real and believable, and right from the start I really cared her complex struggles.

    The whole thing is a little bit comically over the top, like some cyberpunk manga cartoon, but that's ok, because the world is so rich and vivid.

    "Why Torture Me So"

    I love Soler's narrative and Meyer's take on Cinderella, but I hate how it ended!

    "Great read (listen)"
    Where does Cinder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I went into this book a bit skeptical, however the reviews lured me in and I took a chance. I loved it. It took me a bit to get accustomed to the idea of a cyborg in New Beijing playing the part of an unconventional cinderella, but I have no regrets. I am hooked now. If you are on the fence about this book, take a chance. The worst that can happen is you don't like it, then you can return it. However, if you like these types of book, you will become a fan.

    "Captivating read!"

    I needed something new and I saw that the last of this series was out. Decided to give the first book a try and loved it. The reader's performance is also stellar! What a good read. She develops the world very well. You get thrust into the new lingo and way of the world all at once, but if you stick with it, soon you understand every bit of what is being said. Great story.

    Not quite satisfied with the cliff hanger ending, but I'll definitely continue this fairy tale series.

    "Funtastic"

    This was a great, fresh take on a classic tale. I liked Cinder and Kai very much. For this being the first book in a series, the author did a good job fleshing out the characters, even the supporting cast had more depth than just good or evil. I am excited to see where the story takes me next and will be starting Scarlet immediately.
