Summary (from Goodreads):

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.

Before I start talking about my thoughts and opinions on Cinder, the main reason I finally got the chance to read this is because Brittany @ The Book Addict’s Guide created a readalong, called “The Lunar Chronicles Read Along“, which there would be more info on her post so if you’re interested then you can sign up there also (CLOSED). Mainly, it has to do with reading or rereading either one or all of the books in the Lunar Chronicles (depending where you’re exactly at in the series) before the final book, Winter comes out and we would all get to read Winter as it releases And Winter comes out on November 10th…wait, that’s my birthday. Guess I know what to do when my birthday is around the corner.
