Most of these are prequel stories, except for “Something Old, Something”, in which a group of friends gather for a wedding. I thought that was the perfect coda to the series. It’s funny and sweet, and I like that these fairytale retellings do end with a wedding -- but it happens after time has passed and the bridal couple are no longer teenagers. Having this story at the end of Stars Above rather than as an epilogue to Winter also made the passage of time feel real.

As for the other stories, “Glitches” (eleven year old Cinder meeting her new adoptive family) and “Carswell’s Guide to Being Lucky” (Thorne as a young teenager) were great. “The Princess and the Guard” had some wonderful scenes but they felt a bit like a series of short stories, rather than something cohesive.

“The Keeper” (Scarlet and her grandmother), “After Sunshine Passes By” (Cress), and “The Mechanic” (Kai’s perspective of meeting Cinder) didn’t take full advantage of their potential to tell us much new information, but I still enjoyed spending more time with these characters.

I didn’t care for “The Queen’s Army” or “The Little Android”.

In other words, more or less about what I expect from a short story collection. ( )

this was a nice collection of short stories! i cried a bunch, but mostly because i was so happy that the characters got a happy ending. ( )

I was so happy to revisit with Cinder and friends I promptly set aside my other books as soon as my pre-order popped up. I have always said it is an art to tell a short story and have the entire story actually work in such a small amount of pages. I have to say that Marissa Meyer does a wonderful job. Many of the things that I noted in her novels are absent here, we get to the point a heck of a lot quicker in these short stories and everything that is added is added in order to enhance the overall story. What I loved was the call backs to other fairy tale stories like The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, and the mash up of Star Wars and Sailor Moon that we all know and love. I would seriously consider this book Meyer's prequels (but you know not terrible) to the Lunar Chronicles series.

Consisting of nine short stories, Stars Above managed to actually make me fall in love with already beloved characters, and actually made me understand and like Winter a heck of a lot more too.

Please note, if you have not read Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Fairest, and Winter you will be spoiled by the below review.

The Keeper (4 stars)-I really did love the behind the scenes look at Scarlet's grandmother, Michelle. Reading about how Michelle came to Lunar, fell in love, and how that love found her decades later in order to help thought to be deceased Princess Selene was great. It seriously makes me mourn a heck of a lot more for this character because I thought her character in Scarlet was a bit thin for me. Now as a reader I have an understanding of why she did what she did and how she came to love and hope for Cinder's future. It was also a kick to see a pre-teen and then teenage Scarlet running around.



Glitches (5 stars)-Did I really need more ammunition of why Cinder's step family (except for Peony) sucked? No I did not. This story was heartbreaking on so many layers. Cinder is all of 11 here and as readers we know she has been "asleep" for several years. Waking up with false memories and being taken to her new family was a lot for her to go through. I enjoyed seeing the character of Garan and it would have been something to see perhaps how things would have changed for Cinder had he lived as her stepfather. Instead we see Cinder doing what she can in order to be useful and liked by her new family.



The Queen's Army-(3.5 stars)-I love Wolf. Seriously. He's one of my favorites next to Thorne. That said, it was kind of boring to read about how he and others were forced to become part of Levana's army. We already got some backstory about things related to his brother and others in Scarlet, so this wasn't really a look that I thought was necessary. It would have been better to see how Wolf walked away from his pack when he got to Earth. Or at least I would have preferred that. It's always nice to see what made someone on the wrong path turn to a different one.



Carswell's Guide to Being Lucky-(5 stars)-Yeah Thorne! We get a look at a young Thorne and his indifferent parents. I love that he decided he was going to be a captain and that was all there was to it. Reading about Thorne's schemes at school was pretty funny. Thorne is still a scoundrel, but lovable in this one.

After Sunshine Passes By-(5 stars)- We get a look at Cress at nine years old and how she first came to be put on the satellite. It definitely gives you an importance glimpse of what was going on with all of the other "shells" and how badly they were mistreated. You totally can understand why Cress in turns disliked and feared Sybil, but also wanted her approval.

The Princess and the Guard-(5 stars)- Wow. Wow. Seriously. We finally get to see what caused Winter to give up her gift. I was shocked by the entire storyline (in a good way) and the final reveal that readers were privy of. I can see why for Winter going crazy from lunar sickness was a better alternative to using her gift. And thought I was already at 0 percent for hating Queen Levana, but man oh man this story just upped that. A lot.

The Little Android-(5 stars)- Sad and evoked every feeling I had when I read The Little Mermaid (the real The Little Mermaid) as a kid. We get a look at Cinder in this one, but she's not the main focus of this story.

The Mechanic-(3 stars)- Not really earthshatttering. But it was a nice look at Prince Kai getting to see Cinder for the first time. I think it was included to set up the next and final story.

Something Old, Something New-(5 stars)- I loved this final story. Looking at the title you can guess what is going on in this one right? It was great from beginning to end. I was so happy to see our group happy. And I loved that Meyer showed realistically that not everything between Earth and Lunar was going to be all yes we all love each other and things are great overnight too.



There is also a teaser of Meyer's new book Heartless. I seriously want that book now!

I wish I hadn't waited so long to read this, maybe then I would have enjoyed it more. It was nice revisiting the characters but the only stories I actually liked were The Keeper, After Sunsine Passes By, The Princess and the Guard and Something Old, Something New - my favorite because I adore Scarlet and Wolf.
