Wicked! A fresh, fierce take on Cinderella that's a little bit fairy tale, a little bit Terminator, and totally genius.
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.
This is one of those books where the characters stay with you. Lorelai is this book’s representation of Snow White. But she’s nothing like a Disney princess. Her kingdom has been stolen from her, so she’s been hiding and sowing the seeds of rebellion among her people. Meanwhile, Prince Kol suddenly finds himself thrust into the role of King without any idea how to save his kingdom. The book is recommended for witty conversation, fabulous fight scenes, wicked magic, and refreshing, non-sappy, romance.
A futuristic twist on a classic fairytale, Cinder is not your everyday princess - in fact, she isn't even your everyday human! After a devastating accident leaves her with an assortment of mechanical body parts, Cinder determines to become the best mechanic in New Beijing despite her ungrateful step-family and her new second-class status as a cyborg. However, when dreamy Prince Kai seeks her out and asks her to repair his damaged android, Cinder begins to discover that bigger problems are emerging. Queen Levana, ruler of the Lunar people who make their home on the moon and are known to possess mind-control powers, has her sights set on Earth, and - you guessed it - Prince Kai. It's up to Cinder to stop her, but her journey is only just beginning. The first in a four book series that incorporates remixed characters from Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Snow White, this is a sci-fi/fantasy novel unlike you've ever seen before. Brilliantly written and packed to the brim with humorous, diverse, and adventure-loving characters, this series is engaging and entertaining for lovers of any genre! Recommended for ages 14+
