She is soon working with a handsome royal guard who forces her to question everything she knows about love, loyalty, and her own humanity.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
02/13/2017
A muted palette of black and denim blue lends a bleak, sooty undertone to the world of Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles in this graphic novel spinoff. This time, Meyer focuses on Iko, Cinder’s cheeky sidekick and an assassin agent sent to hunt down the wolf-soldier hybrids that are plaguing Earth. Unlike some of the previous novels, this story doesn’t require preexisting knowledge of the series, easily catching up fans and new readers alike with capsule introductions to Cress and other members of the Rampion crew in a prologue. Iko is an entertainingly flippant yet formidable heroine, a former servant droid who now inhabits an escort’s body and takes on bloodthirsty enemies as though she were invincible. (And compared to her other fairytale friends, she is.) Yet, Iko is left questioning her own humanity, misreading romantic tension with a royal guard and perhaps finding disturbing commonality with the wolf-soldiers who have one goal in mind: to force Cinder to cure the mutations that turned them into monsters. Holgate’s dynamic, stylized artwork handily balances the story’s action and humor while bringing Meyer’s world to vivid life. Ages 12–up. (Jan.)
From the Publisher

"Fans of The Lunar Chronicles and new readers alike will be delighted ... beloved worlds and characters have smoothly transitioned into graphic format, and a thorough character introduction and quick recap will help new readers feel right at home... Energetic and entertaining with the right balance of action, humor, and romance. Though Iko is the main protagonist, all of the major characters from the series are brought and employed wisely... Holgate’s dynamic yet monochromatic artwork supplements the snappy dialogue and captures the characters’ personalities and mannerisms beautifully." VOYA, starred review

Didn't realize it was a graphic novel. Not my cup of tea.
