The Lunar Chronicles, sometimes abbreviated as TLC, is a young adult series of science-fiction novels written by American author Marissa Meyer.

Plot descriptionEdit

The series revolves around Linh Cinder, a cyborg who worked for her stepmother Adri. 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.
