Cinder (Lunar Chronicles #1)
Prince Kai. Even mentioning his name makes me swoon. I don’t know what it is about him. He isn’t that different from most heroes in YA, but something about him just makes me all swoony and fluttery inside and stuff. ❤
There were chapters where it’s from his POV, which was nice. Don’t get too excited, though. This book is wholly in third person, which by the way, I was actually thankful for. I always prefer first person, but I don’t think that would’ve suited this book.
The side characters I also loved. There was this one scene─I don’t know if this is a spoiler or not─where Cinder gets a comm from a girl who I recognized immediately as the Rapunzel in this story. She didn’t mention her name, but I’m assuming it’s Cress. 😀 See the blurb for the third book, Cress, over at Goodreads. You’ll understand.
And holy crap, I had a so much fun reading this book. I always love books that are fun to read and never make it seem like a chore to finish it. I’m only angry at this book because the ending left me begging for more. And the blurbs for the rest of the books in the series don’t help, because they make it seem like this series will be a ride filled with awesomeness. The fact that I have to wait til next year to read the sequel kills me. :c
I strongly recommend this book to you if you want an awesome dystopian fairy tale retelling with great characters. And you might even have as much fun reading it as I did. :]
Careful, though. There is a cliffhanger, and the sequel comes out next year. ._. I suggest you read it when the sequel is closer to its release, if you don’t think you’d have the patience. I don’t, but I wasn’t prepared for that cliffhanger.
But just the thought of having to wait a whole year for the next book…
