Cinder by Marrisa Meyer

The first book in one of my all-time favorite series!!!

The story is set in the future, where the world is divided into just a few countries. We follow Cinder, she lives in New Beijing, under the rule of the monarch. The empire is sick with the plague, that has been wiping out people left and right, and his son Kaito is next in line to take the throne.

There is no cure for the plague, but researchers at the royal palace are working non stop to come up with one. There is a draft, where cyborgs are “volunteers” as guinea pigs for trial cures.

Cinder is a renowned mechanic, the best in business. She is also a cyborg, and that means she had no right, treated by a second class citizen by all, and even more horridly by her stepmother. She is a servant, all her money goes to them and when one of her stepsisters gets the plague, stepmother volunteers her for the draft. 

During the initial examination, the doctor figures out that she is immune, her help is invaluable. She is let go but has to come back every day, so the doctor can study her blood, or so h sais. 

She first meets prince Kai, when he brings his android for her to fix. Since then they keep running into each other. Cinder likes that he treats her like any other person, however, she never told him she is a cyborg. And Kai loves having someone to talk to, especially with the new threat from Luna. 

It's an amazing & unique take on the known tale. It's one of those books that you can't put down till the last page. :)
