Cinder is a renown mechanic, but as a cyborg - that's not enough to earn her respect from her fellow citizens. When a plague outbreak and a royal customer turn her life upside-down, Cinder finds herself in a tangle of danger, romance, and heartbreak that will challenge everything she knows about herself and transform the way others see her.

A futuristic Cinderella story with a boatload of twists, Cinder blends science fiction, fantasy, and romance into an easy flowing Young Adult read that leaves you itching to find out what happens next. 

It contains: 

  • small scale fights
  • threats of injury
  • surgical incisions
  • a brief reference to someone's ethereal nudity
  • physical attraction
  • kissing
  • numerous instances of non-violent death

Overall an enjoyable read.
