This is not the fairytale you remember. But it’s one you won’t forget.

Meanwhile, in New Beijing, Cinder will become the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive – when she breaks out of prison to stay one step ahead of vicious Queen Levana.
As Scarlet and Wolf expose one mystery, they encounter Cinder and a new one unravels. Together they must challenge the evil queen, who will stop at nothing to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner . . .
I fell in love with this book. I had high expectation due to all positive reviews that I’ve seen before. Mostly this turns out bad, because than I only can be disappointed by the thing in question. Luckily this wasn’t the case with this book. The story is a variance on Cinderella, but placed in the future. Cinder is a cyborg in this tale. She was once a healthy little girl, but when she turned 11 she was in aan accident. To keep her alive a lot of her body parts were replaced by robotic parts. After this operation she was adopted, but her adoption father died shortly after. Therefore she was now entrusted to her stepmother. Until here the story sounds like a classic Cinderella story, except the futuristic robot parts. Cinder is a renowed mechanic.
I love the strong character of Cinder. She never gives up. Although I have a little bit of understanding for the step-mom. I think you could assume that she acts the way she does, because she is scared for the unknown. This makes the whole story to an inspiring and fluent reading experience. I fell in love with the story and it took only two days to read it. That’s how fun I found the book. The characters have dept, especially Cinder. Therefore I really felt for her. On top of that I had a direct aversion to the Lunar people. I’m really anxious to read the next stories, and start them as soon as possible.
