‘Cinder’ by Marissa Meyer

“Even in the future the story begins with once upon a time.”

Humans and cyborgs crowd the streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague breaks out in Beijing. In space, Lunar people (people who live on the moon for e.g. Aliens) watch them, waiting to make a move (plan of attack). But no one knows that Cinder is their Hero.

‘Cinder’ is a science fiction book that is about a gifted engineer in New Beijing who is a cyborg but no one knows. It is revealed that Cinder is a cyborg by her stepmother, who accuses her for her step-sister’s sudden illness (the plague, caused because she is a cyborg). Prince Kai visits Cinder himself at the weekly market for her to fix his broken androids.

This book is for adults because they would understand the story line a lot better than children. Personally I didn’t like this book because it was boring and there was no excitement and adventure. Science fiction books are books that are not reality and include science like engineering, utopia, dystopia, good and evil etc. In conclusion this book is for adults because they would understand the story line a lot better so I give the book a 2/5 stars.
