Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction.

In this thrilling debut young adult novel, the first of a quartet, Marissa Meyer introduces readers to an unforgettable heroine and a masterfully crafted new world that’s enthralling.
Yo, I am a sucka for robots. I don't know why, but if you put the word "cyborg" in the description of anything....I go bananas! I am really looking forward to this book. The cover? Interesting to say the least and, for me, it has a more adult feel to it. I am happy that there is not a face on the cover - this one is pretty original.
