I've been on a fairy tale retelling kick lately after watching Princess and the Frog with my niece for the 739374672919474th time so I decided to pick up this and Cinder. Before going to get it from the library I wanted to give this a try because, honestly, cyborgs? It sounded a little sketchy to me. So I read this prequel and I was Instantly hooked. The world building was FANTASTIC and all the futuristic stuff was fresh and original. As soon as I finished this I dove right in to Cinder.
