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 nine stories—five of which have never before been published—and an exclusive never-before-seen 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.


The Little Android: A retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” set in the world of The Lunar Chronicles.

Glitches: In this prequel to Cinder, we see the results of the plague play out, and the emotional toll it takes on Cinder. Something that may, or may not, be a glitch….

The Queen’s Army: In this prequel to Scarlet, we’re introduced to the army Queen Levana is building, and one soldier in particular who will do anything to keep from becoming the monster they want him to be.

Carswell’s Guide to Being Lucky: Thirteen-year-old Carswell Thorne has big plans involving a Rampion spaceship and a no-return trip out of Los Angeles.

The Keeper: A prequel to the Lunar Chronicles, showing a young Scarlet and how Princess Selene came into the care of Michelle Benoit.

After Sunshine Passes By: In this prequel to Cress, we see how a nine-year-old Cress ended up alone on a satellite, spying on Earth for Luna.

The Princess and the Guard: In this prequel to Winter, we see a game called The Princess

The Mechanic: In this prequel to Cinder, we see Kai and Cinder’s first meeting from Kai’s perspective.

  3. I am such a fan of this series and I cannot wait to see who is getting married!! I hope it's Scarlet and Wolf (they are my babies).

  4. I haven't had the pleasure of reading The Lunar Chronicles yet. So I can't have a favorite character.

  5. Have not read the series yet, so I am not sure, but they are at the top top of my to read list!

  6. I like Scarlet. She's tough and can handle anything.

  7. Even though I have mad love for all the characters, my favorite would have to be Cinder. She was just amazingly complex and brave and good. I love her so much.

  8. Scarlet or Wolf….She is a redhead… top marks for that obviously and I love the complex emotions that are embodied in wolf…fighting himself, his past…I guess we can all relate to that from time to time.

  9. You are the luckiest sweetie. <3 SO jealous of your manuscript :D And so happy for you. <3 I hope you will love Stars Above so much :) I cannot wait to read it too.

  10. Cinder is my favorite by far. Wonderful. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

  11. Wolf is my favorite; thanks for the giveaway! :)

  12. Iko for sure! She's so much fun!

  13. I definitely love Cinder (and Cinder+Kai)!!!

  14. Wow that is a hard one! Favorite female is Cinder and favorite male is Thorne. But really I love them all.

  15. My daughters have read this series, but not me! I really can't keep putting it off and missing out!

  16. My favs would have to be Cinder, Iko, and Wolf. :)

  17. Boy, that's tough, but I'd choose Scarlet.

  18. Ah, such a hard question! But, I'd say Scarlet! Scarlet+Wolf=otp.

  19. Hands down Captain Carswell Throne!

  20. I haven't read the series yet. Looking forward to getting into it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. My favorite character is Cinder! Thank you for this amazing chance! :)

  22. Definitely Iko and Wolf!! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  23. I have no true favorite because I cannot pick! I love Cinder because she is the heart of this series, but I love Wolf's dedication and complexity...and I love Thorne because who doesn't? haha

    This is Lili of Lili's Reflections, by the way. I do not know why it is not showing my name right now.

  24. Cress. She is completely and wonderfully adorable!

  25. CAPTAIN CARSWELL THORNE, hands down.
    Favorite quote from Cress, I believe:
    Cress: "Do you think it was destiny that brought us together?"
    Thorne: "No. I'm pretty sure it was Cinder.”
    I died of laughter. He makes me laugh and I love characters who make me laugh.

  26. Agghhh I don't have a favorite as they're all so wonderful in their own ways! Even Levana is awesome!
