Cinder VS Lord of the Rings

Get to know the four districts:

Panem - Post-Apocalyptic & Dystopian District
These are books that take place in the future, either after a major Earth catastrophe or where the government has declared certain laws that make the world a bad place to live (and sometimes both). Think Hunger Games or The Maze Runner.

New Beijing - Sci-Fi & Fantasy District
These are books that take place in different worlds and include magic or they have amazing technology (and sometimes aliens). Think I Am Number Four or Eragon.

Sherwood Forest - Contemporary & Historical District
These books either take place in the present or in the past, generally with regular people without special powers or abilities. Think The Perks of Being a Wallflower or Scarlet (a retelling of Robin Hood).

Pandemonium Club - Paranormal & Urban Fantasy
These books are very similar. Paranormal stories focus on human and non-human characters (like vampires, werewolves, ghosts, etc.). Urban Fantasy often has similar supernatural character elements to Paranormal stories, but these take place in a specific city setting. Think City of Bones (urban fantasy) or Beautiful Creatures (paranormal).
