“Cinderella meets dystopia. Cinder is a cyborg whose parents died when she was young. The man who brought her into his family died years ago from the plague that rips through the futuristic city of New Beijing. Cinder lives with her two step sisters and her step mother, Adri, who forces her to work in the market place as a mechanic where she meets prince Kai. Later when her step sister comes down with the plague, Adri insists that it was Cinder’s fault and sends her to the palace to be used in the plague research. Soon Cinder starts to discover the secrets of the lunar people and the Queen who wants to make Prince Kai her King. Cinder plays an important role in this new plague filled world, and when she finds out what it is, everything will change.
