Without giving anything away the story follows Cinder, a teenage girl who spends her time fixing machines to pay for her stepmother and two sisters to live, and well it’s the story of Cinderella… so you know how it goes. However, the fact that you know the story already doesn’t detract from reading it, sure it’s predictable (kind of the point) it actually makes you more interested because you are searching for the symbolism and connections to the story you know while it takes place in this crazy futuristic world.
From what I understand about this series is that each book covers a different fairy tale, elegantly weaving it into the world and story started in the first book.
There are five books in the series (if you include the prequel), with the final book and conclusion to the story to come out in the next 2 months. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of these books, and if you’ve read them already or go and do so after this post, let me know what you thought in the comments below.
Off to go read about futuristic little red riding hood… never thought I’d say that… 😉
