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 nine stories – five of which have never before been published – and a special bonus excerpt from Marissa Meyer’s upcoming novel, Heartless, about the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Stars Above is essential for fans of the bestselling and beloved Lunar Chronicles.
There’s nothing better than discovering that a loved series has a short story collection that goes along with it. And the fact that I realised this before getting too far into the series meant that I actually got to read most of this series in chronological order. Which, let me tell you, made an already amazing series amazing-er (it’s a word now…)
One of the things that I absolutely adored about this collection is that it gave great back stories and an amazing insight into each of the characters in The Lunar Chronicles. Although the novels by themselves tell you enough about each new character when they appear, this gives a more in depth insight into the past.
If you’re a fan of fairy tales, good writing, or even The Lunar Chronicles, you need to get your hands on this collection. It is an amazing companion to an amazing series (I’m using amazing a lot in this review) and it is thoroughly enjoyable to pick up a new story here and there to fix that Lunar Chronicles itch.
