“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.”
My absolute favorite scene in Cinder is the ballroom scene near the end. For some reason, I really enjoy the revelation scenes where characters find out things that shock them. This was definitely a shocking scene! I always find myself wanting to go back and read that scene to find anymore hidden clues in the characters reactions and such. It’s a gorgeous scenery, too!
The worst scene in this book for me definitely was when a certain character dies in a hospital at the most inopportune time. I cried so much when I was reading it for the first time but it’s really necessary to the character development and to the plot in general. I always skip this scene when I reread the book, though. I just don’t want to experience it all over again!
