Carswell's Guide to Being Lucky is a free short story in Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles that was originally only available in Target exclusive copies of Cress which was a huge disappointment to international readers like me who had no chance of buying a copy. Thankfully this story is now available to anyone, all you have to do is sign up for Marissa Meyer's newsletter and she'll send you a free copy of it. Don't you just love it when author's give something back to their fans? I know I do so I really appreciate this gesture!
I'm not going to go into much detail about this story because it's really short and it would be too easy to spoil. Instead I'll just tell you that it's about Captain Thorne's school days, he's only thirteen years old in this and you can already tell what a loveable rogue he's going to grow into. I loved reading about his crazy money making schemes and it was interesting to learn more about his background. Was it too short? Of course it was, let's be honest anything less than a full length novel (& probably not even that!) wasn't going to give me my fill of Thorne but as an extra freebie read I loved every minute of it.
