I recently got this book in the mail, and I'm very excited to read it! Cinder is the first of The Lunar Chronicles ( a quarter which will also include "Scarlett," "Cress," and "Winter") and is a reboot of, you guessed it, Cinderella. The publisher says it's "a little bit fairy tale, a little bit Terminator, and totally genius."

"He was the fantasy of every girl in the county. She should have stopped thinking about him the second the door had closed. Should stop thinking about him immediately. Should never think about him again, except maybe as a client--and her prince. And yet, the memory of his fingers against her skin refused to fade." --Pp. 128

"He released a shaky breath when they had gone. "Did you feel her?" he asked, barely above a whisper.
"Of course," said Torin. His eyes were drawn to the ship, but he could have been staring at Mars for all the focus in his eyes. "You resisted her well, Your Highness. I know it was difficult."
Kai brushed his hair off his forehead, seeking a breeze, any breeze, but it didn't come. "It wasn't so hard. It was only for a moment."
Torin's eyes met his. It was one of the few times Kai had seen true sympathy in that gaze. "It will get harder." --Pp. 186

Cinder will be available January 3, 2012!
