I had my doubts about this book, but as soon as I got to know Cinder more my whole viewpoint changed.

Cinder is an amazing character.  She was insecure about being cyborg and {that thing that I can't say * spoiler*}.

Cinder has character motivation.  She was motivated to find a cure for her stepsister {who had letumosis} 
and fixing her getaway car.  

When you read this book you will fell like you are in the story.  When Cinder has adrenaline rushes; you also have them.

At the end of the book {last fifty pages} my heart was about to beat right out of my chest.

My reactions:

"Oh, no! Cinder!"

"Kai! Are you Crazy!?"


"Oh thank heavens!"


Cinder will make you feel the feels.  I loved it!

four out of five stars.

  1. I totally agree! I'm not such a fan of Sci-Fi, but I love fairytales, so I had to try this. Meyer made me fall in love with the story and the world. I can't wait for Scarlet!
