Stars Above – 1.5 and 3.1

The Queen’s Army and Carswell Guide to Being Lucky. Two stories that moved me in different ways.

Series: The Lunar Chronicles

This one will be short and sweet, just wanted to showcase these 2 stories in the Stars Above compilation.

This may contain spoilers for those who had not read any of The Lunar Chronicles books. Beware.

The Queen’s Army (The Lunar Chronicles #1.5)

While I love these books, there is also something very savage about the Lunar stories. Worst of them all is seeing what children in Luna go through, like with this one and what Ze’ev had to face.

Even worst than that is knowing that he eventually was further genetic modified out of spite and to try and control him, after what he did for Cinder on earth. So it’s not easy reading these stories. Totally and completely savage and not, as well as heartbreaking to read because you know well it will all end up.

At least Thorne’s story was a little traumatic and sad than this one.

Carswell Guide to Being Lucky (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.1)

Truth is, I sort of forgot about this one for like a week and I was at 80% but then I finished it quickly. It’s not that I didn’t like it, it’s that I was very busy with my muggle job and I was still a little hangover from Winter. But I did like seeing young Thorne, it was cute, I feel like Cress now when I think of Thorne, I believe at some point we only started seeing him through her eyes and that’s why he became somehow more approachable, no doubt, also, because of how little he changed to accommodate her.

In any case, I have two others from these stories that I am looking forward to read, one is about Kai, and the other about all of them. I will keep you posted.

My blog is suddenly looking very Lunar inclined with all the new posts I have about these stories, it’s what happens when I read about the same world for an extended period of time, next on my list though, is The Red Scrolls of Magic and The Mister, two completely different authors and stories, but that’s how varied my taste in books is.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to check out the growing list of authors and books I have read, maybe we have a lot in common and don’t know it. That’s all for now.

Happy reading, dearies!
