I adore fairy tale retelling. Cinder luckily captured everything that Meyer wanted. It was a very creative and imaginative story. I loved Cinder. I found the cyborg aspect to be interesting and I liked how Meyer included how being a cyborg had pro and cons. I liked that she was strong and decisive. Iko was a fun character and I really liked her. Kai was amazing and I adored him. He was funny and also very persistent. The stepmother and stepsisters were interesting, more so Peony. Queen Levana was well evil and I can't wait to see what she will do next. I found this plot to be really exciting and I didn't want to stop reading this book. The only issue that I had with this book was that the plot becomes really predictable at a certain point, but even with that I really enjoyed this book. I found this book to be really unique in how it was told. Meyer retold the tale in a matter that didn't sacrifice any of the world that she built. The world was really flawless and I want to know more about it. The lunar people, plague, and Cinder herself interest me and I hope that is addressed in Scarlet. I am really excited to see where this series goes, especially with how this book ended. I recommend this book to people that want a really epic book with a great cast of character and an awesome world. If you are lucky, this book will captivate you as much as it did me. I need more.
