Staff Reviews

Dystopian futuristic fairy tales have never been done better.  Cinder is a cyborg mechanic, the best in New Beijing, that gets asked by the prince to fix his droid.  What follows is an adventure and life she never expected, including a ball, a deadly disease and a lunar queen out for revenge.  Marissa Meyer artfully creates a futuristic world which you can almost believe exists, full of well developed characters and surprises around every corner.

“The story of Cinderella turned on its head and given a futuristic twist, Cinder is exciting, entertaining, and engaging. A plague is sweeping across Earth and there is no cure, the people of the Moon want to conquer Earth, and the annual Ball is coming in New Beijing. Suddenly, Cinder finds herself embroiled in all three events and she may hold the key to the future survival of Earth. This is the first volume of a planned quartet. I can't wait for the next book!”
— Ellen Richmond, Children's Book Cellar, Waterville, ME


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.
