5 out of 5 stars
I have had this book on my TBR for years but was really reluctant to read it because of all of the hype and love surrounding it. I tend to not care for overly hyped books and I didn’t want this one to be another disappointment. I am SO glad that I finally caved and gave this book a chance.
I really loved this book. The setting of New Beijing was really interesting and drew me into the story. I loved Cinder’s character but I think my most favorite character from this book was Iko. I loved her to pieces and was furious about what Adri did to her.
I listened to the audio version of this book and absolutely loved the narrator. She had a great voice and was able to make each character’s voice distinct so the reader was sure to know who was speaking.
I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!
