The first volume of the Lost Stars manga adaptation starts off halfway through the events of the original novel putting you straight in the action. Whether you’re new to the story or are already a fan of Claudia Gray’s praised novel, there is something new for all readers to enjoy with incredible imagery and an artfully-summarized retelling of one of the best romantic tales of all time.

Publisher's Summary

The Empire can be seductive, particularly if you're an aspiring young pilot... Thane Kyrell and Ciena Ree both know this very well when they enroll Imperial Academy, eager to pursue their dreams. When Thane discovers the darker side of the Empire, though, and defects to the Rebellion, the pair's lifelong friendship will be put to the ultimate test.

Honestly, I was a bit surprised to see how the first volume began. The manga series starts off in the middle of the original story, and it was a bit jarring to see that so much has been skipped. If you wish to experience Lost Stars for the first time, I highly recommend that you start with the actual novel so you don’t miss all of the buildup to the more vital parts of the overall story. The manga is still great, but I think it’s better as a visual enhancer rather than a substitute for the novel itself.

I'm glad the decision was made to adapt Lost Stars to a manga and to release it outside of Japan. This unique volume is for a niche audience: fans of Lost Stars and fans of manga, or at least those who are open to trying out a new reading style. If you fit into those categories, this is a great book to pick up! The artwork is beautiful, and the adaptation captures the emotion and compelling story of the original Lost Stars well.
