Plot descriptionEdit

Summary of Cinder: The series revolves around Linh Cinder, a lunar cyborg who works as a mechanic in New Beijing ( in future). She lived with her adoptive mother Adri, and her two sisters Pearl and Peony, who died of letumosis ( in Cinder). Her unique makeup, combined with her adoptive father's inventions in cybernetics, allowed her to become the best mechanic in New Beijing at the tender age of sixteen. Her talents became so widely known that one day the crown prince, Prince Kai, brought his android, Nainsi, for her to fix, and while he tried to make light of the subject, it became apparent that it was a very serious matter. As the prince and mechanic grew closer, the harsh truth tore them apart. The Lunar Queen Levena exposes the fact she is a Cyborg Lunar, and ordered Kai to put her in Jail. In Jail Dr Erland tells her she is missing princess Selene and that Levena is in fact her Aunt, meaning Cinder is the actual Queen of Luna.
