But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.
My Thoughts: I first read this book back in 2012 and now that I am wanting to continue with the series with the final book coming out this year I wanted to reread this one since I had forgotten a ton of information from it. The story was just as good this time around as I remember it being the first time I read it. I do have a spoiler filled review from the first time I read it but I wouldn’t advise reading it! 🙂 I highly recommend you pick up this book if you haven’t already. I mean come on Cinderella retold as a cyborg! How cool!! I am now reading the second book which is Scarlet and that is a Little Red Riding Hood retelling.
