Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)Cinder by Marissa Meyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Linh Cinder was adopted by her father who has perished, but her stepmother and two step sisters who typically treat her with disdain. Cinder has a booth at the market where she repairs bots, droids, anything mechanical. but when another fall ill at the market with the plague, her life pivots again. She finds herself being sought out by Prince Kai who needs his android repaired and after seeking all avenues he asks Cinder for help. There is banter and Cinder finds herself enjoying Kai’s company but could he really be interested in her? She is a cyborg and after her sister falls ill she begins to unravel secrets about her past that could destroy everything she knows. With a ball on the horizon and a war pending with the Queen Levana who puts on an air of disdain to everyone she meets but there is so much more to the Queen then anyone could imagine.

This was wonderful. I had put off reading this one because I wanted to savor the story and this exceeded all expectations I had. Cinder is a wonderfully unique character and I wanted more. I thought the way this author wrote this story was breathtaking. You can visualize every moment of this book and I so hope this becomes a series or movie. Exceptional.
