[hyoo-muh n]


1. a human being (half in this case)


1350-1400; Middle English, Middle French, Latin


Featured Half-Human:

Cinder from Cinder

So far Cinder is my favourite character within this series. I just love how brave and fantastic she is! We learn right away that she is only half human because she’s also half robot! How cool! I love how the author incorporated all the cyborg stuff. She has this fun system that she uses just from flicking her finger. I’m actually pretty jealous. I also love her relationships. Every single one of them is different. For example, her best friend is actually a robot/android (whatever you want to call her) and her step mother pretty much hates her. I just think everything she interacts with is amazing and fun. I’m so excited to see what happens to her next!

“Even in the Future the Story Begins with Once Upon a Time.”


Summary: 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.

I actually had a lot of half humans to choose from but Cinder is a great character and I really love this whole series. Other half humans that come to mind are Percy Jackson, Jace (Lightwood?), and Sadie Kane.

  1. I love reading about cyborgs. It’s so fun and the stories normally make you think about what it really means to be human. It’s a very relevant question when you consider the ever-developing android and bionic technology available. I haven’t read Cinder yet but have heard a lot of good things about it. I love the first line.
