In this prequel to Cinder, we see the results of the plague play out, and the emotional toll it takes on Cinder. Something that may, or may not, be a glitch….


I liked this short story. It explained the beginning of the Cinderella story that is introduced in Cinder. Explained how Cinder got to where she is, and what makes her so different. Her inability to cry is seen as a glitch, and explained away in terms of a mechanical term.

I always love prequels. They often don’t actually feel necessary for a series, but they always add something to it. Glitches is no different, Cinder’s situation will be explained in Cinder, but the little bit of extra information and emotional turmoil help to give more context to her tale. And help to make her far more realistic for me, as the reader.
