Staff Reviews

Meyer's debut novel may be inspired by Cinderella -- and it may involve a prince and a ball -- but that's about where the similarity ends. Cinder, our cyborg heroine, is a mechanic in post-World War IV New Beijing. Technology may be advanced enough to give her artificial limbs and a robot for a best friend, but it can't cure the victims of a deadly pandemic sweeping the globe, nor can it save the world from the Moon Queen's tyrannical ambitions. Drawing themes from the classic fairytale, Blade Runner-esque cyberpunk, and Sailor Moon (yes, really), Cinder is a satisfying entry to the YA sci-fi genre, and a promising start to a quartet of novels.


Winter 2012 Kids' Next List

“The story of Cinderella turned on its head and given a futuristic twist, Cinder is exciting, entertaining, and engaging. A plague is sweeping across Earth and there is no cure, the people of the Moon want to conquer Earth, and the annual Ball is coming in New Beijing. Suddenly, Cinder finds herself embroiled in all three events and she may hold the key to the future survival of Earth. This is the first volume of a planned quartet. I can't wait for the next book!”
