The enchantment continues. . . .
The universe of the Lunar Chronicles holds stories – and secrets – that are wondrous, vicious, and romantic. How did Cinder first arrive in New Beijing? How did the brooding soldier Wolf transform from young man to killer? When did Princess Winter and the palace guard Jacin realize their destinies?
With six stories – two of which have never before been published – and an exclusive never-before-seen excerpt from Marissa Meyer’s novel, Heartless, about the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Stars Above is essential for fans of the bestselling and beloved Lunar Chronicles.
After reading Cinder, I decided to pick up Stars Above so I could read the short stories that take place before the first book or right after. “Glitches” was a fun little introduction to Cinder and her life before the events of the first book. We get to find out how she arrived in New Beijing and met her new family. It also drops some great hints are to who she really is. “The Queen’s Army” gave us a glimpse into the creation of Levana’s Lunar army. Very interested to see more of the Lunar side. And finally, “The Little Android” was a great retelling of The Little Mermaid. Now I can move on to reading Scarlet.
