"In her first graphic novel, Marissa Meyer extends the world of the Lunar Chronicles with a brand new, action packed story about Iko, the android with a heart of (mechanized) gold. When rogue packs of wolf-hybrid soldiers threaten the tenuous peace alliance between Earth and Luna, Iko takes it upon herself to hunt down the soldiers' leader. She is soon working with a handsome royal guard who forces her to question everything she knows about love, loyalty, and her own humanity. With appearances by Cinder, Cress, Scarlet, Winter, and the rest of the Rampion crew, this is a must have for fans of the bestselling series."--Publisher's description.

Marissa Meyer has done it again!
Remember the guy who called Iko "That disturbing robot" ? You just can't hate that dude no matter how hard you try. I am pretty sure this takes place between the last "Stars Above" story and Winter. Sigh. I'm like 48th in line for volume 2. It's going to be a while...

Love Marissa Meyer's Books

For fans of Meyer's Cinder series, this graphic novel does not disappoint. I loved getting Aiko's perspective, and Meyer does a great job of fleshing out the thoughts and feelings of a character that has been with us since book one. This first volume ends on somewhat of a cliffhanger, so have volume two waiting close by!

This was such a great follow up to the Lunar Chronicles! I really enjoyed seeing all the characters again and getting more of Iko who is so funny. I can't want for Volume 2 to come out!

I read this so quickly, and it was over too soon. I'm so desperate for Volume 2 but I have to wait so long! I want to re-read already, and/or re-read the entire Lunar Chronicles series.
Iko is absolutely adorable. She was one of my favorites in the books, and I'm so glad she's getting the highlight of this one.
At first, I thought the simple drawing style/bluescale would be detrimental. I was disappointed when I first saw it because I was expecting a really detailed, colorful, glossy graphic novel. But not only did I get used to the art style, but came to really enjoy it. The characters are simple enough that you can almost fill in the details of how *exactly* they looked when you pictured them in the Lunar Chronicles.
Many ships were sailed.

Wires and Nerve is the beautiful graphic novel that carries on the story after the Lunar Chronicles series ended. This spin-off is perfect for fans of Cinder and the gang, but it is also just as entertaining for readers that haven't read the book series as everyone is well introduced in the first few pages. I really enjoyed this graphic novel with the funny, interesting story and the beautiful illustrations. Now I'm really looking forward to the second volume and I might even read the books too!

This is not my favorite style of graphic novel, but I was just happy to be back in the Lunar Chronicles world and back with some of my all-time favorite characters. The story was great too, and I'll definitely continue reading it, I just took off half a star for my personal preference of drawing style when reading a graphic novel. This was a little too 'cartoon-y' for me. I like more detail, especially when I have to wait a year between installments.

What happened to the crew after the series ended? Well, Wires and Nerve gives you an insight into how things are going and where everyone has ended up. I'm interested to see how this next chapter will unfold.

I loved having another addition to the Lunar Chronicles, and I can't wait for volume two! Meyer does a wonderful job transitioning to the graphic format. The story flows naturally from frame to frame, never feeling disjointed as graphic novels sometimes do when the writer is new to the medium. Iko is a star and definitely deserves her own story, so I'm glad she finally got it!

I can't get enough of the Lunar Chronicles.
When I found out that Iko was getting her own book, I virtually screamed.
I loved having the appearances of the old gang, even if they weren't exactly all back together quite yet, and seeing them continuing their lives, following their plans and dreams, and being happy was just amazing.
I also love Iko. The sassy android with more feelings than some humans, she is the perfect spunky sidekick and hero anyone could ask for. Trying to do anything she can to help Cinder (sorry, Selene) smooth over still-remaining tensions between Luna and Earth, Iko takes upon herself the task of hunting down rogue wolf-hybrid packs set loose over Earth to take them back to Luna. She enjoys it, even if it is dangerous, because she has a new purpose.
When Iko gets injured and the Rampion comes to get her, happy reunions, disastrous ceremonies, and organized wold attacks ensue, all wrapped under Iko fighting for her recognition and for her right to feel the emotions she does.
Love this extra to the series. While the characters aren't totally how I imagined them to be, I got to give appreciation for a job well done
