There had to be another choice.

Princess Snow is missing.
Her home planet is filled with violence and corruption at the hands of King Matthias and his wife as they attempt to punish her captors. The king will stop at nothing to get his beloved daughter back—but that’s assuming she wants to return at all.
Essie has grown used to being cold. Temperatures on the planet Thanda are always sub-zero, and she fills her days with coding and repairs for the seven loyal drones that run the local mines.
When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realizes that Dane’s arrival was far from accidental, and she’s pulled into the heart of a war she’s risked everything to avoid. With the galaxy’s future—and her own—in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival.-Goodreads
Basically, the similarities are coincidental. Space makes stuff look cool, just look at firefly, Snow is the original missing princess and lets be honest, what else is a good anywhere job for a girl in space? Right, mechanic/programmer. Basically, if you enjoyed Cinder, read this book (Though it sticks far far closer to the original tale than any of Cinder).
