I have to give huge kudos to Marissa Meyer–re-imagining the Cinderella tale with a cyborg-heroine really knocks it out of the park! I enjoyed this retelling and will anxiously look for the next installment in the series. Writing, characterization, and pace were all strong, with lots of good ideas that kept the story fresh. Oddly, in the midst of overall strong writing, a handful of improperly-used words cropped up, which had me puzzling over where the editor was at those moments. Luckily, they stood out more as an oddity than a serious flaw and didn’t impair my enjoyment of the book.
