Feiwel & Friends
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. In this thrilling debut young adult novel, the first of a quartet, Marissa Meyer introduces readers to an unforgettable heroine and a masterfully crafted new world that’s enthralling.
I've been waiting for this one to have a cover so I could Wishlist it for you. You may recall during Fairy Tale Fortnight, we had an interview and a guest post with author Marissa Meyer, and from the interview and my chats with her, I knew Cinder would be a book I'd be putting on my wishlist. So hopefully, Ashley and I will be presenting some Cinder-y stuff for you next year, but either way, I will be reading this one.
Also, I kinda want stockings that make me look like I have cybernetic parts, now...
What's on your wishlist?
