Cinder (Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer
Cinder (Lunar Chronicles #1)

Megan R, January 31, 2013

This was an amazing book! I like stories which rework fairy tales, but this was one of the best such tales I have read. It was true enough to the Cinderella tale while also bringing new twists and excitement. Can't wait to continue the series with the next book!
Cinder is a cyborg with, you guessed it, an artificial foot (among other changes). She's a renowned mechanic who doesn't bend to her stepmother's every whim. Unfortunately, her class doesn't leave her much room to buck the system, so, despite her strong will, she's still our downtrodden heroine. Like Cinderella, Cinder's life gets better, but only after it gets worse. The magic is in the journey.
If you like fairy tales or futuristic tales, Cinder is a must read.
