Hey all! Today we get to be a part of the amazing CINDER paperback blog tour, celebrating the release of CINDER in paperback, and preparing for the release of book 2, SCARLET. For those who don't know, The Lunar Chronicles are fairy tale retellings, set in the future, with very interesting twists. Make sure you check out Reagan's reviews of CINDER and SCARLET, but for now, here's a little more about Cinder, and an awesome giveaway!
cybernetic components, she’s considered unnatural at best, a danger to society at worst.
A second-class citizen and the legal property of her adoptive stepmother Adri, Cinder had taken
to working as a mechanic at the New Beijing market, but her life took a turn weeks before the
annual ball when Peony, her younger stepsister and only human friend, contracted letumosis—
the incurable disease that’s been ravishing Earth for over a decade. This set Cinder’s life on a
collision course with the handsome Prince Kai, the cryptic Dr. Erland, and the cruel Lunar Queen
Levana, who is determined to see Cinder dead so she can steal the prince’s heart for herself.
Now Cinder is on the run from the law. She must stay one step ahead of Levana and her mind-
controlling minions while trying to keep Kai and the entire planet out of a war that could signal
the end of human freedom.

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction.
