“I think it’s about time you told me about this plan,” he said.
Cinder curled her hands into tight fists. The possibility of their success had seemed so faint that she’d hardly considered what would come next. She’d hoped they would have some time, at least a day or two, but she saw now that there would be no such respite.
War had begun.
“You said yourself that the people of Luna need a revolutionary.” She lifted her chin, holding his gaze. “So I’m going to Luna, and I’m going to start a revolution.”
For the life of me, I could not put this book down. And even a few days after reading it, I am still frothing at the bit to read the rest in the series. For one, this book did continuously catch my attention from the first time it came out. But over the years, I never really found myself interested. Until three days ago. I could have never imagined a world like this, which so thoroughly enthralled me, and that’s not because of the Lunars. The idea is so original, I could not have been more pleased (as a reader and a writer). The idea that it ties in with the fairytales they are based upon, but also have nothing to do with them.
I’m normally not a science fiction gal, but this book has convinced me otherwise. I will gladly buy the entire series when I can (the other two that are out). So five stars from me, simply because I cannot find fault with it. It’s a bit cliche in the plot, but Marissa Meyer goes about it so that it’s not extremely cliched and the character is not only a flat cyborg character, but also is a rounded character. The plot was very well developed (even for a first book) and nothing was rushed, like some books can be when the action starts rolling. This gets bonus, because even though the pace picks up, it’s not rushed and things are explained.
I would recommend this to people that are not sci-fi people. because it brings a refreshed outlook on the future of things and cyborgs. I literally finished this book within 7 hours of picking it up.. I could not have been more pleased.
Kudos to you, Marissa Meyer, for getting me to pick up a sci-fi book, let alone actually am now obsessed with reading the rest of the series. I await the other books!
But what the doctor hadn’t considered was that Cinder had no desire to be queen. She didn’t want to be a princess or an heir to anything. All her life—at least, all the life she could remember—all she’d ever wanted was freedom.
