As superfans of Marissa Meyer’s amazing Lunar Chronicles, we are happy to crown her the queen of writing a series that gets better and better with each book. We also think Queen Marissa is fun, sweet and adorable in person! We so loved catching up with her and talking about the newest member of the Lunar Chronicles family, STARS ABOVE, her next (Alice In Wonderland-inspired) book, HEARTLESS, as well as her favorite fairy tale characters, her love of dragons and how she hopes to inspire her readers to be as confident and world changing as her characters. Love. Her.
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 appear here for the first time in print—and an exclusive never-before-seen excerpt from Marissa’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.
