Hey everyone, I hope those who celebrated Thanksgiving had a thankful and memorable holiday! Today, I have a futuristic sci-fi fairy-tale retelling to share with you today.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Imagine a world, where androids and humans coexist but, not equally
Cinder is a talented mechanic who happens to be a cyborg. She resides in New Beijing, where she lives with her horrid stepmother and two stepsisters, where she is forced to do their bidding.
When the one kind stepsister, Peony, becomes ill with a deadly plague that riddles the world. Her wretched stepmother turns Cinder over to the government to assist in their research to find a cure.
Meanwhile, there is another threat to Earth. This threat comes from the Lunar Queen, threatening war on New Beijing if her demands are not met. The Emperor has vowed to do everything he can to keep things politically peaceful and to rid the plague that has taken so many lives.
Is Cinder the key to saving the world?
I REALLY enjoyed this book! I switched back and forth between listening to the audio book and reading the actual book. When it comes to listening to audio books I am very picky about the narration. However, I found both forms of this story engaging. The writing is uniquely beautiful! I will be continuing with the series!
Best Wishes Always,
