Linh Cinder is your everyday, second-class citizen--living in New Beijing. That is of-course including the fact that she is part-cyborg and has the uncanny ability to fix objects. But on her 16th birthday she get’s signed up for Letumosis research, after her mother accuses her of giving her sister, this deathly plague. (But if its deadly then why isn’t she dead too?)
The problem occurs when the prince’s dad dies, making him the new emperor, then he receives word that the (Evil) Lunar queen Levana is coming to Earth to attend the Emperor's funeral. After this, Cinder and Emperor Kai go to the Royal Ball together. But Levana notices something strange about Cinder, She is Lunar! New Beijing is harboring a criminal! After she sees this the world plummets into chaos, witch all started with Cinder being a Lunar! (which are suppose to be on Luna, or the moon rather.)
My favorite thing about the book is how it is based off of a Fairy-tale, In this case, it is cinderella. It is like a advanced, set in the future version of the original. they just rename the characters, and the plot just a tad, but never-the-less it’s still a really good book!
I think the one thing that I didn’t like about this book was they didn’t didn’t go into detail about the characters and their background, if they did, a 5 of 5.
Overall I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars
