The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer is a series like no other. It’s a Sc-Fi fairytale retelling series, and if that doesn’t pique your interest than I don’t know what will. Each book follows a different fairytale and adds new character’s while still following the same continuous plot line.
The series starts with the first book, Cinder. We follow Cinder, the mechanic cyborg who everyone avoids and is a slave to her cruel stepmother. But her life is turned upside down when her younger sister is infected with the plague, the Lunar queen is coming to earth, and the prince of New Beijing happens upon her mechanics booth.
So should you read this series? Well, I couldn’t think of a single reason you shouldn’t so here’s a list of reasons why you definitely should!
1. It’ll make you love Sci-Fi
Even if you’re not the biggest Sci-Fi fan (Me!), this series will make you want to dive into every other Sci-Fi book there is. From the new technology to visiting the moon, to flying around and fighting on spaceships, it’s everything you want in a perfect Sci-Fi novel.
2. Character’s you’ll fall in love with
In every book, we get introduced to at least two new characters. At first your hesitant, why would you like these new characters when the other ones are so great? But give it a little bit of time and you’ll become obsessed with every character in this series, especially when you finally see them all working to defeat evil.
3. So much romance!
These books are swimming in romance and couples, you think you’d get sick of it. And yet Marissa Meyer manages to create so many different relationships that are all so phenomenal and addicting. I guess it has something to do with those amazing characters I was talking about.
4. Fairytale retellings like no other
I sometimes wonder how Marissa Meyer does it, we have such an intricate plot that develops so much throughout the later books and yet she still pulls off perfect retellings. I kept forgetting these were even retellings, but when you look back all the main plot points you realise how perfectly created these retellings really are.
5. An amazing plot
It’s detailed, long, and each book ties together perfectly. We follow such a long journey with so many different characters, with each part planned to perfection, Its kind of incredible. The story has such an incredibly laid out plot, and the last book wraps up everything with utter perfection.
The Lunar Chronicles is honestly an incredibly addictive, clever and exceptional series. If you haven’t read it yet then I highly, HIGHLY, recommend you do.
