Linh Cinder

So, this past spring, I had to write a description of someone for writing club.  I was required to use primarily verbs, adverbs, adverbial clauses, and so forth, and as few adjectives as possible.  I chose Linh Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.  Since Cinder grows such much throughout the entire series, I decided to focus on her character growth through Cinder.  So this is both a description of her and a summary of the book.  Please do not share without my permission, as I worked rather hard on this.

Linh Cinder
by Emma S.

Fixing, building, inventing.
Grease and oil running through her veins.
Meek as a mouse.
Caring for Iko and Peony.
Fighting back.
Falling for the prince.
Learning the truth.
Keeping secrets.
Losing a sister.
Beauty hurts.
Stronger than one
Stronger than ten
Stronger than a hundred men.
As fragile as china.
Lone foot like a glass slipper.
Fighting for the prince.
As traitorous as the Patriots.
Truth that is a bombshell.
Vanished like a ghost.


  1. I love this poem, and I think it fits Linh really well. (I would know - I'm a big fan of the Lunar Chronicles)

  2. *cheers* That is awesome. Very well done! Definitely fits Cinder well.

  3. Oh my gosh I just read that you like Mother Daughter Book Club! *hugs* None of my firends have read the series, so my sisters and I are fangirling on our own. :( Glad to know that there is someone like me out there!
