“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at breaking the spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Fairest by Marissa Meyer
Coming January 27th 2015
Fairest is Queen Levana’s book from the Lunar Chronicles. It is being called book 0.1 as the events actually take place before Cinder which is book 1 of the Lunar Chronicles. The Lunar Chronicles are a retelling of everyone’s favourite fairy stories but on a future earth. There is Cinder, the cyborg, Scarlet who meets a street fighter called Wolf whilst trying to get back her grandmother and Cress, a girl who was locked in a satellite by an evil queen and had (incredibly) long golden tresses. If you haven’t heard of the Lunar Chronicles, go and buy them now. Seriously, stop reading this post and buy them. Then come back to this post of course!!!
Here is the order of the Lunar Chronicles books
Book 1 Cinder
Book 2 Scarlet
Book 3 Cress
Book 4 Winter (released in November 2015)
In this stunning bridge book between Cress and Winter in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles, Queen Levana’s story is finally told.
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?
Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never been told . . . until now.
Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes full-color art and an excerpt from Winter, the next book in the Lunar Chronicles series.
Why I am waiting anxiously
I finished Scarlet yesterday and I absolutely loved it. However, throughout the series, there has been a lot of mystery surrounding Queen Levana. Apart from the fact that she is a meany (understatement of the century), we don’t really know a lot about her. Why is she so horrible. Why won’t she let anyone see her without her glamour? I read the first chapter of this book on the Lunar Chronicles website, and I think we will be learning a lot more about the difficult life of a Lunar Queen.
