Back in January I posted my review of Marissa Meyer's debut novel Cinder (you can read it here). This was such a fantastic story and is an unusual mix of a dystopian and science fiction fairytale retelling of Cinderella that I can't recommend highly enough. I don't think I've seen anywhere near enough buzz for this book so since I stumbled across the book trailer I thought I'd give it another shout out!
If you've already read Cinder I'd love to know what you thought of it & if you haven't then seriously you need to go out and grab your copy now - I don't know what you've waited this long for! If you're still not sure you can read the free prequel short story Glitches online here (read my review here).
Cinder, a gifted mechanic in New Beijing, is also a cyborg. She's reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's sudden illness. But when her life becomes entwined with the handsome Prince Kai's, she finds herself at the centre of a violent struggle between the desires of an evil queen - and a dangerous temptation.
Cinder is caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal. Now she must uncover secrets about her mysterious past in order to protect Earth's future.
