Cinder by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Princess Cyborg Lunar Mechanic. That is who Cinder is.

In the future world, sometime after the 4th world war, the alliance of nations made up the earth’s Commonwealth including Lunar people. They killed their children and some of them fled to earth taking their lunar children (shells) with them. They brought the plague Letumosis.

Many people died. Cinders stepsister Peony, Emperor Rikan to name a few.

Queen Levana ruled Luna, who wasn’t the rightful heir to their throne. It belonged to Princess Selena, her niece, but she had been usurped. Selena was only a young child when the hovercraft she and her parents rode in crashed and burned. Selena’s skin was found and was suspected to be still alive somewhere.

Cinder survived but the only way she could; by making her a cyborg. Linh Garan had gone to great lengths to do that, and I suppose because he knew she was a royal descendent. She was a product of her stepfather’s invention he made with a bioelectrical security system. It was meant to protect her. It put a lock on her Lunar gift. (It reminded me of the six million dollar man and the bionic women . )

She was very special indeed and when all was said and done, even worth fighting. Only she didn’t know it. With time everything was going to make sense as Dr. Erland would reveal.

Cyborgs were creatures disdained throughout the universe; and shunned as outcasts. They were being drafted as guinea pigs for science to find a cure for the deadly plague, Letumosis, caused by Lunar shells.

Dr. Erland had set up that cyborg draft as a ruse, just to find Princess Selene.

From the time she was 11 years old she felt worthless and rejected by society particularly by two members of her stepfamily: Adri and Pearl.

Just like Cinderella, Cinder was hardworking, and because of her cyborgs she was the best mechanic around, so her stepmother did her work in the marketplace selling spare parts for Androids and such. She was the only one that brought any income into Adri’s household, and Adri used her. She even sold her for research.

One day in the marketplace she met Prince Kai. He needed his android, Nainsi fixed, and Linh Cinder was one of the best mechanics around, but that is where the story begins. I didn’t like Cinder keeping her cyborgs a secret. It would have been better if she was proud of it *sigh

Don't Eat That

The food pyramid is a lie, meat fat is good for you, and many (if not most) health problems are treatable with diet alone. I'm in remission from severe arthritis (multiple joints replaced), chronic fatigue, depression and a plethora of other symptoms from changing how I eat. This blog chronicles how my family and my parents eat and what it's done for us.
