    Why did I wait so long?

    I have been avoiding this series for who know how long because I didn't think I would latch onto the story and I was starting g to believe that there wasn't anyone who could bring a fresh look to this old tale, but color me WRONG! The adaptation on Cinderella to this futuristic masterpiece is breathtaking. The ties to it original folklore are so finely woven into unique environments and characters that it becomes this beauty blend of the old without suffocating us with the similarities. Cinder is a hero we don't see much of in this type of setting, we go from a beautiful maiden that is hardened by her work life and step family to this clever and genuine cyborg mechanic with a heart as big as her processor. She's a modern Cinderella we can really latch onto and root for. We only got to see hints of her character growing towards the end so I'm really looking forward to seeing more personal growth in the next book. I The world that Cinder lives in is nothing short of amazing. I have always been a fan of the futuristic Tokyo/China style scene in movies and to bring such a big and complex world to life with nothing but words is nothing but genius and the perfect setting to the modern retelling. The plot twisters a but sudden. It's like they were suddenly thrust on me and before I could really accept them they glossed over the next one. Not much adjustment time. With that said I am so happy I finally decided to pick this series up. Instant fan!

    Exceeded Expectations

    I had an idea of what the story could have turned out stone it does follow a classic fairy tale. However, the author puts a whirl wind on such a tale. The setting is in a futuristic, fantasy world. Mixing Sci - Fi with fantasy, your imagination ignites with wonderful imagery. Characters are exciting and relatable. The author has really put a lot of effort into a story we all thought we knew. You think you know your fairy tales? Then I dare you to start reading this series and prepare for an epic adventure.

    Cinder

    Entertaining young adult science fiction/fantasy about a young woman ridiculed and made to feel less than human simply because she has some mechanical parts. Her adoptive family treats her unkindly even though she is the source of their income. While the story is undoubtedly entertaining it is predictable in plotting. You can easily guess early on who our downtrodden heroine really is and I found myself wishing would just hurry up and figure it out already. Our prince charming is kind, noble and conflicted by the untenable choices he has to make and the wicked Lunar Queen is well, appropriately wicked. The story stretched out too long for me and really could have used some editing. The story is first in a series and I'm debating whether to read the second.

    Read this whole series. Positively loved the creativness and realism. I entirely fell right into the fantasy and definitely couldn't put it down. Wonderfully written and excellent story line. Descriptive and virtually sucks you in. I was very disappointed to finish them. Amazingly well done.

    GREAT BOOK!

    Cinder was a great book! The story had an exciting plot and was very well written with great detail. I really enjoyed these series and definitely felt immersed in the fictional world with Marissa Meyer's wonderful story-telling skills. I would absolutely recommend this action packed, unique book to anybody! The Lunar Chronicles are a must-read series!
