The Lunar Chronicles #1: Cinder

A cyborg Cinderella. A forbidden romance. A deadly plague. A fairy tale as you’ve really never read it before. Sci-fi heaven but emosh to go with it. Cinder is a gifted mechanic – and a cyborg. She’s also (though she doesn’t know it yet) a princess. Cinder lives a miserable life in New Beijing, hated by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when she meets the handsome Prince Kai, she’s caught up in a violent struggle. Look out for the evil queen…
