“He froze, becoming stone still. As the hover climbed the hill to the palace, his shoulders sank, and he returned his gaze to the window. "She's my alpha," he murmured, with a haunting sadness in his voice.

Alpha.

Cress leaned forward, propping her elbows on her knees, "Like the star?"

"What star?"

She stiffened, instantly embarrassed, and scooted back from him again. "Oh. Um. In a constellation, the brightest star is called the alpha. I thought maybe you meant that she's...like...your brightest star." Looking away, she knotted her hands in her lap, aware that she was blushing furiously now and this beast of a man was about to realize what an over-romantic sap she was.

But instead of sneering or laughing, Wolf sighed, "Yes," he said, his gaze climbing up to the full moon that had emerged in the blue evening sky. "Exactly like that.”

A relieved grin filled up Thorne’s face. “We’re having another moment, aren’t we?”

“If by a moment, you mean me not wanting to strangle you for the first time since we met, then I guess we are.

Vanity is a factor, but it is more a question of control. It is easier to trick others into perceiving you as beautiful if you can convince yourself you are beautiful. But mirrors have an uncanny way of telling the truth.
Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1) - Marissa Meyer

I actually really enjoyed this book. I found it quite slow to start but persevered and grew to love it! I picked this up at my local library after hearing many reviews from BookTubers, and I will be picking up the sequel - Scarlet - very soon.

 

It re-tells the story of Cinderella creating a new, funky, modernised tale. The characters are well thought out, and Prince Kai makes a dashing hero.

 

Set in the dystopian future of New Beijing, Cinder - a mechanic - is a cyborg. She is blamed for her father's death and her sister's illness, by her evil stepmother, Adri. On the arrival of Queen Levana, a Lunar - Cinder begins to make discoveries about her life.

 

When reading the novel I did find the plot predictable, certain parts immediately made me realise what was going to happen next and how the story would eventually unfold. I wouldn't say that this ruined the storyline for me, I was still eager to find out how it all unfolded - I just would have liked a little more suspense.The set up of this novel had so much potential, yet I feel the author lacked something. This and the predictable plot were the main reasons I gave it a four star rating, instead of a five.

 

Overall this is a great story, one I would certainly recommend to those who enjoy delving into dystopian, futuristic worlds.
