In Heartless, Catherine is one of the most desirable women in Wonderland and the object of the king’s affections. However, she is wholly disinterested in the king and wants to open up her own pastry shop, supplying the Kingdom of Hearts with delicious sweets. At the ball where she is expected to receive the king’s proposal, she meets Jest, the handsome court jester. Although the attraction between them is unmistakable, to avoid scandal they enter into a passionate, secret courtship.

In addition to Heartless, Meyer is also scheduled to release two graphic novels set after the events of The Lunar Chronicles. These novels will have many of the series’ main characters, including Iko, Scarlet, Cinder, Cress, and Winter. The first of the graphic novel due, Wires and Nerve, is expected to release January 2017.
“To this day, comics and graphic novels are one of my favorite forms of storytelling, and I can’t wait for readers to experience the world of the Lunar Chronicles in such a wonderfully visual format,” Meyer told the Washington Post.
