Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

Lydia’s Opinion: 

3.5 stars

Cinder was a good novel but i found that Cinder was too different from the other people in the novel and that i couldn’t relate to her as well as i could to there characters. The novel had a basic plot throughout which i was never surprised or caught unaware of  plot twist. I could easily disconcert what was going to happen. There was too much forshadowing in the novel. It was well written and well balanced, equipped with both romance and action although the romance in the novel is left on an unanswered note, meaning that we dont know who she ends up with. I also enjoyed how the book ended in suspenseful reveal.
