THE LUNAR CHRONICLES: The Books, The New Story, and The Amazing Giveaway


It was the year 2012 when the first book of The Lunar Chronicles, Cinder, came out. Four years later, the last book of the series finally makes it way to the shelves of our book stores. Time flies so fast, doesn't it? Now, with four books and two companion novels, The Lunar Chronicles is finally  complete.

I have actually read the first two books of The Lunar Chronicles a few years ago, the same year they were released. But due to some circumstances, I was not able to continue where I left off in the series. Now that all the books are available, maybe it's time to binge read the whole series.

If you are not familiar with the books I am talking about, well... I guess you should get yourself acquainted with them. Because once you start this series, you will become hooked. You will be wanting more and more of it. And there is no going back.

If you want to read them, here are the links to my review of the first two books, CINDER and SCARLET. I hope it helps.

So, what is The Lunar Chronicles all about?

The Lunar Chronicles is a young adult science fiction series consisting of four main books (Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter) and two companion novels (Fairest, and Stars Above). All four books are retellings (with a futuristic sci-fi twist) of our beloved fairy tales from childhood.

The first book, Cinder, re-imagines the story of Cinderella complete with a wicked stepmother, a dead father and a prince. The twist? Cinder is a cyborg. I cannot tell you the details of the other books without spoiling anything, and there's also the fact that I've not read the last two books. All you need to know (probably) is that: Cinder is Cinderella, Scarlet is Red Riding Hood, Cress is Rapunzel, and Winter is Snow White.

Don't fret, dear Lunartics! This may NOT be THE END. There is news that The Lunar Chronicles Graphic Novel is in the works. And according to Marissa Meyer, it will be a two-part series, titled WIRES & NERVE. It will take place after Winter (but before the Stars Above epilogue) and feature Iko as the main protagonist. That sounds very exciting!!! Read all about it on The Washington Post (Exclusive: ‘Lunar Chronicles’ author Marissa Meyer will write her first graphic novel — with androids), or on Marissa Meyer's blog post (TLC Graphic Novels… IT’S A THING)
