Take your favorite fairy tales and smash it together with science fiction and you’ve got the Lunar Chronicles. Cinder is a lonely cyborg loathed by her stepmother and stepsister because she is cyborg. She is forced to volunteer as a test subject for the plague that is killing the citizens of New Bejing after her stepsister, the only one who loves her, falls ill. For some reason she has an immunity and agrees to help the doctor search for a cure. At the same time she helps the prince by fixing his personal android because she is the best mechanic around. Meyer takes you along the typical Cinderella storyline in Cinder, Little Red Ridding Hood in Scarlet, and finally Rapunzel in Cress.
I love this YA series and can’t wait for the others! This is great if you love series, but are getting tired of reading dystopia novels all the time. Plot: 9 Protagonists: 9 Uniqueness: 9 Writing: 8. Overall I would give this incomplete series a 9.
