Cinderella a cyborg and brilliant mechanic a futuristic take on the classic fairy tale. I loved this book and was sad the tale came to an end.

The story gives me a Star Wars vibe, which I love! Cinder is totally Luke Skywalker and her sidekick Iko reminds me of R2D2. The prince, by default, would have to be Princess Leia (sorry, Prince Kei). And Levana, the Lunar Queen, is Cinder’s version of Darth Vader. The Lunar is a race that lives on the moon and is waiting for their moment to strike Earth to gain power.

I would definitely deem Cinder as a strong female character. She lives her life on her own terms after she breaks free from her stepmother. She has a little bit of spunk too. I adored the scenes she had with the Doctor (one of my favourite characters in the whole book, even though he’s only a side character), mostly making sarcastic remarks (especially the one about the sex change – read the book and you’ll probably laugh out loud too). She is a loving character too. She has a sweet relationship with her youngest stepsister and with her sidekick robot Iko.

story was good but i did not like how every book in the series added 2 new characters: a girl and her boyfriend. thats 4 pairs of couples, seems kinda lame. also i didn't like how cinder was a cyborg and when she lost her ''slipper'' it was her foot. gross. -anonymous (found the computer logged on. im not ratandeep.)

This book was so good! I've been wanting to read it for a while, and finally got around to it, and let me tell you, it did not fail to satisfy. I thought it was great, the whole concept and new-age take on the Cinderella fairy tale was incredible, and the ending definitely was not what I was expecting. The only reason that this book did not get 5 stars and is not on my favorites list, is because some of the plot twists were predictable and I was expecting them early on. Nevertheless, Cinder was a great book, and I would readily recommend it.

I loved this book. You should read it. Don't mind the girly cover, everyone who isn't a girly girl.

When is book 4 coming out?

This is one of my favorite books of all time! It is a very interesting twist on Cinderella, a classic tale, and also provokes thoughts on the future. I recommend this series to anyone who likes action, fantasizing about the future, epidemics, humor, a twinge of romance, and big identity reveals. It is the kind of book that makes you stay up until 4 in the morning, because you can't go to sleep without knowing what happens next. I do not recommend starting it in the evening. But you should still read it.

A fun amalgam of Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel (so far). Easy-to-love (or hate) characters and a wonderfully fun take on the stories. Looking forward to reading the next ones.

Very cool sci-fi twist on an original fairy tale. I must say I really didn't like Cinderella in the original story, but here it empowers Cinder and gives her a strong personality and raises my hopes for the girls in the rest of the series.

I liked it. It's a really cool sci-fi twist on Cinderella. It works well with me because I love sci-fi as well as fairytales.

Cinder is really just Cinderella with a Sci-Fi/Steam punk kind of twist. It involves techy droids, the plauge, future sci-fi, and fairy tales all twisted together for a unique spin!

“Kai shrugged and turned to Cinder. His eyes softened a little with a polite bow of his head. “I hope our paths will cross again.”

“Really? In that case, I guess I’ll keep following you.”

I am a cyborg.

"Cinder twisted up her lips. "Do you think it could have a virus?"

"Maybe her programming was overwhelmed by Prince Kai's uncanny hotness."

"I don't know. I don't actually remember anything from before the surgery."

His eyebrows rose, his blue eyes sucking in all the light of the room. "The cybernetic operation?"

"No, the sex change."

The doctor's smile faltered.

"I'm joking."

"You really think Adri's going to let me go now just because I can buy my own dress now? She would probably tear it off me and try to resell the buttons." -Linh Cinder
