Have I read the Lunar Chronicles? Yes.

Have I read Les Miserables? No.

Am I going to read 1,000 pages of drama? No.

Am I gonna be a filthy casual and look up the summary of Les Mis on Google? Hell yes.

So I watched the musical film version of Les Misérables when it came out but I don't even think I finished it and I certainly didn't remember anything about the storyline (except that there was a prisoner 24601) so reading this didn't feel like a retelling to me!

That being said, I liked the book in general even though I'm kind of tired of the whole rebellion book plots! This book also had a love triangle and insta-love which weirdly, didn't bother me much but I had a preference for the love-tri

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I'm so thankful and excited that I'm nearly crying. The premise of this book is quite literally all my hopes and dreams.

3,5 stars

What I liked:
- The sci-fi setting with all the French words and elements added to it;
- Chatine who is quite a morally gray character and definitely the most interesting one in this novel;
- The plot was pretty solid for the most part;
- The writing was beautiful.

What I didn't like:
- Alouette and Marcellus both had the personality equivalent to cardboard and I was ofte

Les Mis AND Lunar Chronicles??????

Review also on my blog, Storied Adventures

Story/Plot: The premise of the story and plot were A . I mean, a retelling of Les Miserables?! I LOVE that play (I know it's based off of the book, I've just never read it.)! Plus it's a retelling in space!  That's right up my alley! And that's about all I liked of the book.

Writing: I did like the writing. It wasn't anything fancy or my favorite writing ever, but it was good. It was easy to follow along and I never got lost in the story.

Love, Love, Love! I am a Les Mis and Illuminae Series fanatic. The book was close enough but different. Read 100 pages, you’ll be hooked and looking for the next book in the series to publish! I recommend for older teens and adults. This is by far the best book I have gotten lost in in quite some time!

"...leaves behind a cryptic message that only one person can read: a girl named Alouette."


ALOUETTE? Sure; I'll bite.

I received a netgalley of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was super intrigued by it being referred to as a sci-fi, Lunar Chronicles-esque reimagining of Les Mis. I wasn’t expecting how much I would enjoy it! It was fantastic! The world building was so well done that I felt that I was transported to Laterre with its smoggy clouds and dingy Frets. I completely loved all the characters and can’t wait for book two so I can see how their stories progress. The book does start out slow bu ...more

Okay, first off, this is a book you MUST have on your radar. Especially if you are a fan of Les Mis. This was unbelievably amazing and also i am so sad.

I will post a review closer to release date.
