Stars Above

Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

This collection of Lunar Chronicles stories is off to a great start! From “The Keeper”, the opening story:

Cinders. Embers. Ashes. Michelle hoped that whatever strength had allowed this child to survive the fire all those years ago was a strength that still burned inside her. That it would go on burning, hotter and hotter, until she was as bright as the rising sun.

She would need that strength for what lay ahead.

What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!

  1. So is this a ‘sequel’ to the series?

    I haven’t read the series yet, but I’m always fascinated when a writer keeps returning to her own worlds. There is a sense of… I don’t know… it’s as if the world takes up a life of itself when it keeps living even when the main story is over.

    • This collection feels almost like a “thank you” to the fans who loved the series so much. It’s a story collection — 4 have been published previously (Wattpad and elsewhere), and 5 are new. They’re like little bonuses showing parts of the world that we haven’t seen yet. (I’ve only read 1 of the new ones so far, but I liked it!)

      Good point about the world of the story living on. I wonder if there will be more down the road? I know the author has a new series coming out, but it will be interesting if she returns to this world again at some point.
