Askungen - inte sagan som du minns den, men en saga du aldrig glömmer!

Fartfyllt, roligt, spännande! Den romantisk sagan placerad i en hisnande framtid.

Cinder - en cyborg med elak styvmor och mystiskt förflutet. Nu står hon i centrum för en intergalaktisk maktkamp.

Cinder är 17 år och Nya Beijings bästa mekaniker. Som cyborg har hon inga rättigheter, och hennes styvmor lägger beslag på allt hon tjänar. En dag dyker prins Kai upp vid Cinders marknadsstånd. Den omsvärmade prinsen har ett uppdrag åt henne - och snart är de båda indragna i den onda Måndrottningens intriger. Samtidigt härjar en dödlig pest på Jorden. Cyborger som utses till försökskaniner har ingen chans att överleva ...

Aldrig förr har sagan varit så aktuell - och inte för barn! Cinder är Marissa Meyers debutroman, och den gick omedelbart upp på New York Times bästsäljarlista. Nästa del i Månkrönikan utkommer 2013. Fyra delar är planerade.

"Denna välskrivna och underhållande fantasy/science fiction-roman är svår att lägga ifrån sig. Huvudpersonen Cinder är en ytterligtsympatisk figur som det är lätt att fatta tycke för. Även om historien baseras på Askungesagan är den helt egen, författaren har lyckats utmärkt med att integrera sin egen röst med originalet. Då detta är den första boken i en trilogi har läsaren många nya, härliga läsupplevelser att se fram emot. Cinder är en bok för alla fantasy/science fiction-fans från tolv år och uppåt."

Book 1
The #1 New York Times Bestselling Series!

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth's fate hinges on one girl. . . .

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She's a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's illness. 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.

Marissa Meyer on Cinder, writing, and leading men
Which of your characters is most like you?
I wish I could say that I'm clever and mechanically-minded like Cinder, but no—I can't fix anything. I'm much more like Cress, who makes a brief cameo in Cinder and then takes a more starring role in the third book. She's a romantic and a daydreamer and maybe a little on the naïve side—things that could be said about me too—although she does find courage when it's needed most. I think we'd all like to believe we'd have that same inner strength if we ever needed it.
Where do you write?
I have a home office that I've decorated with vintage fairy tale treasures that I've collected (my favorite is a Cinderella cookie jar from the forties) and NaNoWriMo posters, but sometimes writing there starts to feel too much like work. On those days I'll write in bed or take my laptop out for coffee or lunch.
If you were stranded on a desert island, which character from Cinder would you want with you?
Cinder, definitely! She has an internet connection in her brain, complete with the ability to send and receive comms (which are similar to e-mails). We'd just have enough time to enjoy some fresh coconut before we were rescued.
The next book in the Lunar Chronicles is called Scarlet, and is about Little Red Riding Hood. What is appealing to you most about this character as you work on the book?
Scarlet is awesome—she's very independent, a bit temperamental, and has an outspokenness that tends to get her in trouble sometimes. She was raised by her grandmother, an ex-military pilot who now owns a small farm in southern France, who not only taught Scarlet how to fly a spaceship and shoot a gun, but also to have a healthy respect and appreciation for nature. I guess that's a lot of things that appeal to me about her, but she's been a really fun character to write! (The two leading men in Scarlet, Wolf and Captain Thorne, aren't half bad either.)
