Showcase Sunday 8. Fairytale.


I only have one book to showcase, but I'm so happy with it, that I have to post it!
I bought this one as a present for myself ^^

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, the ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . .

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. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.
You all know I love my fairytales (and retellings), so I couldn't resist buying this one. Finally!

Leave a link, so I can take a look at your mailbox this week!
