 The Little Android is a retelling of The Little Mermaid, set in the world of The Lunar Chronicles by New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer.

When android Mech6.0, saves the life of a handsome hardware engineer, her body is destroyed and her mechanics discover a glitch in her programing. Androids aren’t not meant to develop unpractical reasoning or near-emotional responses…let alone fall in love.


(Although I got to read this book for free my review is still 100% honest.)

This story takes place in the same world as Cinder. It is a retelling of the Little Mermaid but with androids and cyborgs. I think that this story was different enough from the Little Mermaid to were it wouldn't boring. I found myself finishing this novella in one sitting because you want to know what will happen next.

The main character for this novella is named Mech6.0 but she ends up calling herself Star. Star found herself liking Dataran, her higher rank engineer. Of course this isn't natural for an android they say an android can be dangerous if unpredictable. I really liked her character and felt bad for her a lot of the time.

This story was really good. It makes a great edition to the Cinder world. If you haven't read it yet then I would highly recommend it. If your a fan of Cinder, then read this novella! You won't be disappointed.

I gave this 4.5 out of 5 bats.

About the Author:
 I live in Tacoma, Washington, with my fianc√© and our two cats. In addition to my slight obsession with books and writing, I'm big on road-tripping, wine-tasting, and hunting for antiques. I'm represented by Jill Grinberg.

CINDER, my debut novel, is a futuristic re-envisioning of Cinderella in which Cinder is a cyborg mechanic. Release date: 3 Jan 2012.
