I have been waiting for this to come out since I saw previews for it online. Cyborg Cinderella? Uh, hello! Sign me up! Plus the cover is pretty rad.
I thought it was pretty well written for the YA genre for which I usually have low expectations. What I liked the most though was her concepts of how cyborgs would be treated and the twists on the classic fairy tale. There were enough changes that the text didn't become stale, but still gave you the links to it's origins you were looking for.
I will say the heroine is kinda slow. I knew what was going to happen chapters before she did, but that may be because I had glimpses into what was happening with other characters. Either way, I spent a good amount of time yelling at the book :P
I'm glad I went into this knowing it's the first part of a trilogy otherwise I would have been pretty miffed but I was surprised that they did wrap up one of the major plot points before the end. I can't wait for the next one, my sister Shmemadoo has been asking me "How long 'til the next one?!?"
