Another gorgeous little piece to this story that I was glad to read, giving us more insight to one of the characters backgrounds. I grinned through a good bit of this one. ( )

The characters in the Lunar Chronicles have more stories to tell than the ones in the original series. In this short story collection, it answers questions and goes into more details about the lives of the original characters. Stories cover different topics from different parts of the character’s lives. In The Little Android, it talks about Cinder becoming a cyborg. In Glitches, the reader learns about Cinder’s first introduction to her new family. In The Queen’s Army, it discusses how Wolf joins the Queen’s Army. Carswell’s Guide to Being Lucky tells the story of thirteen-year-old Thorne wanting to get a Rampion spaceship. The Keeper tells the story of how Scarlet and Selene were cared for my Michelle Benoit. Another story, After Sunshine Passes By, tells the story of how Cress ends up on a satellite, and the Princess and the Guard talks about Winter and Jacin’s relationship. In The Mechanic, readers will see Kai and Cinder’s meeting from Kai’s perspective, and finally in Something Old, Something New, the friends get together for an important wedding.

Some of the stories are strong, but others aren’t as exciting. Glitches was fun in explaining Cinder discovering her talent for being a mechanic, forming a relationship with Iko, and meeting Adri and her family. The Queen’s Army didn’t tell readers anything new about the story. Winter’s story, however, goes into more depth on why she refuses to use her gift. Most readers will love the story of Scarlet and Wolf’s wedding and how their friends make sure it’s a special occasion for them. Most of the stories, however, don’t add new perspectives to the characters, explore new places, or give much more detail about the world. Overall, the stories don’t add anything significant to the characters or the story and short stories aren’t Meyer’s strong point, but fans who finished the Lunar Chronicles wanting more will be somewhat consoled in these stories about their friends from the series.

It's been a while since I've read the Lunar Chronicles series, but this was such a nice collection of stories. Some added extra history to certain players while some told the same story from a different point of view and some were just a fun addition. I highly recommend this read. ( )

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. ( )
