I have no words to describe this book! With such a unique format to run alongside a storyline full of pink haired hackers, explosions, and psycho AI’s trying to blow space stations up I can’t even fault it! If that doesn’t persuade you, illuminae is #loveOZYA!

When I first picked up Cinder I was very cautious thinking it was going to be another retelling. I was so taken aback about how much I enjoyed it and how enthralled I was in the story by the end of it. I was worried given that Meyer aimed to incorporate sci-fi with a classic fairytale but she accomplished this in a way that was fun and fresh to read.

Set in an alternate history 1884 New Orleans, Creeper is a street urchin who witnesses a clandestine meeting between some shady characters and decides she can use the information she witnessed to bribe her way on to an airship’s crew. However she ends up working to prevent an apocalypse with the help of some African deities. There is goddesses, mystical artefacts, airships, Haitian scientists, and a pair of bad-ass nuns. Although there is only a touch over 100 pages, the author manages to pack in a heap of world building that makes me really hope we see more soon!
