The book review for today is “Cinder: The Lunar Chronicles Book 1” by Marissa Meyer. This book falls in the genre of YA and science fiction.

Our main character goes by the name of Cinder who is a mechanic. A very good one in fact. She lives in New Beijing. Cinder is also a cyborg one who is 16 years old. One who was adopted by a caring man who has since passed. She is now owned her stepmother who couldn’t care less about her and two stepsisters. One of which Cinder adores.

A terrible plague is causing havoc in the area. The fatality is 100 percentage. Even the King has come down with it leaving his son Prince Kai soon in charge.

Cinder know the Prince by chance as he has her working on his android that has stopped working. It’s not just thar. The android has secrets he needs to know about. If that is not enough Queen Levana is threatening war if he does not marry her.

Within Cinder’s body might be the cure for the plague. Between her attraction to Prince Kai and her needing to run as far away from her owners this story has a bit of everything for readers.

The book is similar to the story of Cinderella, up to a point. This was a fast read as it only took me two days to complete. This book in my opinion fits for YA. I am a fan of YA and read a good portion of this genre. While I feel there are some YA books out there that all ages can enjoy I don’t feel this is one of them. It is perfect for the YA group however.


I was able to figure out some of the twists and turns but the cliffhanger at the end was really good and I enjoyed it.
