Note: This post reviews a collection of short stories that is written as a companion to The Lunar Chronicles. You may like to read the first four books in the series, Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter, before reading this review. 

Did you ever wonder what Cinder’s transformation from lunar to cyborg was really like? Or how Wolf came to be chosen as one of the queen’s special operatives? And when it was that Winter and Jacin first became friends and fell in love? These questions and more are answered in this final installment.

The Keeper is Scarlet’s grandmother, Michelle Benoit. Michelle had a part to play in the rescue of Princess Selene in the aftermath of the fire that nearly claimed the young girl’s life.

In Glitches, a prequel to Cinder, Cinder has woken up from her eight years in a preservation tank, her cyborg transformation now complete.

How was Ze’ev Kesley, or Wolf as we know him, chosen to be in The Queen’s Army? This story shows his childhood taken from him as he is thrown into his new life in the pack.

Was Thorne’s childhood like Cress had believed it to be, or was he really a selfish flirt all along? In Carswell’s Guide to Being Lucky, Thorne shows us his way of chasing after the things he wants in life and what it takes to get them.

Why was Cress chosen to become a hacker spy for Levana? After Sunshine Passes By shows how nine-year-old Cress became trapped in her satellite prison.

The Princess and the Guard tells the story of how Winter and Jacin became childhood friends, and eventually more.

The Little Android is a retelling of The Little Mermaid.

Kai shows her perspective as he meets The Mechanic, Cinder, for the first time.

Something Old, Something New is the only story to pick up where we left off in The Lunar Chronicles. As its name implies, it features the wedding of one of our beloved couples from the series.

If you have read The Lunar Chronicles and have fallen in love with its characters, then Stars Above is a must read.
