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. 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. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.
I decided to go light this time and considering that Scarlet was release this year, why not? I feel as though this book has not received enough claims that it should in our country and thought that this was the best way to promote it. BTW, I'll be doing an author interview with the author and will be posting it up on this blog, which will occur around July, so stay tuned! We shall be discussing this book on the 29th of June at 8 p.m. WIB, so see you there! I picked up a copy in Books & Beyond btw. As always, happy reading!
