Cinder is the first book of the Lunar Chronicles in which Meyer does a fantastic job of merging the futuristic technology of New-Bejing with some minor elements of the classic Cinderella. Cinder, the main character, is a cyborg mechanic who finds herself caught between interplanetary politics and her evil adoptive mother. Cinder was a quick and fun read that kept my interest until the final page. The plot twist is predictable, but I didn’t find that to be unsettling. The predictability felt right. I cannot wait to see what happens in Scarlet, the second installment.
