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.

Something Old, Something New: In this epilogue to Winter, friends gather for the wedding of the century...
Finally The Happily Every After Epilogue I Have Been Waiting For! I had Stars Above on hold from the library for almost a straight month. I can not tell you how excited I got when I finally received this amazing book from the library. I think I might of scream a little bit of joy when I check it out of the library, of course people were staring and laughing at me. But they all understood my feelings exactly when I got this book in my hands. Now I will tell you I am not a big fans of short stories, I do occasionally do like to read them but mostly of the time I don't read them because I always want more out of the short stories. But I have read four out of nine novella's of the Stars Above on Wattpad and I really love and enjoyed them so much. I really do love going back into the world of the Lunar Chronicles that I can't get enough of it. But also I wanted to read the final epilogue of this fantastic series and sadly said my goodbyes to the Lunar Chronicles world. Plus too read who gets marry at the end of the book, and I tell you I was not disappointed with Stars Above. I absolutely and totally love and enjoy each and every story in this amazing book especially at the happily ever after at the end of the book. I will truly miss this amazing and fantastic world but I will most definitely re-read the whole series in the near future!          

I live in Tacoma, Washington, with my fiancé and our two cats. In addition to my slight obsession with books and writing, I'm big on road-tripping, wine-tasting, and hunting for antiques. I'm represented by Jill Grinberg.

CINDER, my debut novel, is a futuristic re-envisioning of Cinderella in which Cinder is a cyborg mechanic. Release date: 3 Jan 2012.
