Book Talk - Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

A few days ago, I (Pegasus) just finished reading Stars Above by Marissa Meyer. Yay! I have now completed all the books that are part of the Lunar Chronicle Series! This book was a Lunar Chronicle Collection book, to be more specific. I really enjoyed it.

The book Stars Above by Marissa Meyer includes sections from the Lunar Chronicle Series that are presented from different peoples perspectives, such as the "scene" where Cinder met Kai, except that this "scene" is encountered from Kai's perspective. This book also includes sections that happened before the first book. For example, what exactly happened to Cinder. How did she get to New Beijing? As well as what happened to Wolf, such as when he got taken away from his family and why, as well as how he came to be the Alpha of his pack. My favourite section of the book was the final section, titled Something Old, Something New. This section is the story of what happens to Cinder and her friends after the book, Winter. It shows what lies ahead for them in the future and shows the decisions that Cinder makes and more. If that made no sense, then please go read the book! It will make sense afterwards, I promise! You will understand. Read, read, read!

This book includes much romance, secrets and hope when dealing with almost every section in this book. In the section explaining Wolf's young self, the book includes despair, loss, gain, sorrow, as well as pride. In Michelle Benoit's (Scarlet's grandmother's) section, the book deals with feeling worried, constantly worried at that, hiding deadly secrets, feeling wistful, and more.

I was very pleased with this book. I felt as though it was a nice way to end the Lunar Chronicles. It shows how life will continue on for Lunars and Earthens because of the actions that Cinder and Kai, along with others, chose to make. The ending of the book was very satisfying.

If I were to give this book a rating out of 5, I'd give it a 4.45, or maybe higher but I needed to be specific. I know, I am very specific. 😄 As I said before, I thought it was a nice way to finish of the series.

I hope you will read this book! If you have not yet started reading the Lunar Chronicle series, start now!!

Have an awesome day!
