Loosely based on the classic Cinderella story, this is the tale of a cyborg who lives with an evil stepmother and two stepsisters. The setting is post World War IV New Beijing. Cinder is the most renowned mechanic in the city and is very surprised when Prince Kai shows up to have his android repaired. Then we learn of the plague which has Cinder's step-sister, Peony, in its grasp as well as the emperor. Lots of twists and turns in this beautifully written story. Someone, that's me, can't wait to read part two!
