While Cinder is trying to break out of prison and start a rebellion against the evil queen Levana of Luna, Scarlet Benoit is halfway around the world looking for her grandmother. Her grandmother might have information about the lost princess of Luna, and there are people who will do anything to get that information from her. Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who might have answers to where her grandmother is, and together they travel to attempt to rescue her grandmother. Meanwhile, Cinder escapes from prison with the help of Captain Thorne, a swashbuckling pirate wanted in multiple countries for his smuggling. Eventually the groups join up and continue their crusade to revolt against Queen Levana and save Prince Kai from having to marry the queen and make her an empress.
