It's a great twist to the originals. You get to see Iko's side and how she interpets everything. The only thing is that, as great as the pictures are, it is not at all how I imagined the characters. For one, Winter is suppose to be breath-takingly beautiful. What's with the poofy hair? And Wolf is not suppose to look like a wolf, he just needs to have a nice bone structure and sharp canines. None of them actually looked as "pretty" as they were made out to be in the book.

This takes place between Winter and the epilogue in Stars Above while Cinder is the Lunar Queen. Iko is on Earth trying to retrieve the Lunar soldiers who did not return to Luna when Cinder ordered them to. It is a fun addition and we get some adorable scenes with Thorne and Cress and Wolf and Scarlett.

Hearing Iko's perspective was so refreshing. The artwork was dark and gorgeous and the plot was great. I like seeing all of the Rampion crew back together.

I guess you would consider this a spin off series to the Lunar Chronicles. Really, it feels more like a continuation of the series only in Graphic Novel form, so be sure to read the Lunar Chronicles first. In the graphic novel, we follow Iko as she works as a special agent to help Cinder with some situations on Earth. If you loved Iko in the original books, you're going to love this one too. She's still the same quirky, fun, opinionated android that she was in the series. The other characters that you've probably come to love in the Lunar Chronicles are back as well...we get to see Cinder, Kai, Cress, Thorne and even Scarlett and Wolf! Oh, and even Winter and Jacin are there so it really is just like a continuation. There are newish characters to get to know as well, and situations that will have you really wanting to know what's next for everyone. There will be a sequel and that's good because it does leave off on a bit of a cliffhanger. Basically, if you loved the orignal novels, you're going to love this addition. If you love graphic novels and futuristic stories, you'll also love this book...but please do read the Lunar Chronicles first or you will be spoiled.

To preserve the unstable alliance between Earth and Luna, Iko decides to hunt down rogue wolf-hybrids who have been attacking both planets. As an android Iko is uniquely suited to the task. She's also determined to do anything to help her friends Cinder and Kai heal the rift between their two planets. Iko's hunt takes far from Luna as she tracks the wolf packs across earth with help from other friends including Cress and Thorne. Unfortunately Iko is also saddled with an unwanted sidekick in the form of Kinney, a royal guard who has little use for Iko and androids in general. As they come closer to the rogue wolf's Iko will unearth a conspiracy that threatens everyone she cares about--a threat so big she might even welcome Kinney's help this once in Wires and Nerve, Volume 1 (2017) by Marissa Meyer, illustrated by Douglas Holgate. Wires and Nerve is a new graphic novel series. It picks up shortly after the conclusion of Winter, the final book in Meyer's Lunar Chronicles series. The graphic novel series focuses on Iko, a character who never got her own book in the prose novels. While readers might appreciate a basic knowledge of the novels, this graphic novel series can be read on its own. (I read Cinder when it first came out and later read recaps of the other books in the series. That combined with Iko's narrative flashbacks was enough for me.) Iko's graphic novel story is surprisingly delightful. In the midst of a cross-planetary hunt for rogue wolves Iko has to grapple with what it means to be an android and how she is treated because of it. She has been erased from the Lunar Chronicle adventures largely because she is "just" an android and even some of her allies (like Kinney) question Iko's ability to care about anything or anyone when she's not human. Holgate's illustrations are in a blue and white palette that is used to great effect and compliments Meyer's world. The writing is fast-paced with snappy narration from Iko. This volume also uses the graphic novel format effectively with panels that are well designed to create a cinematic feel to the story (check out the spread on page 197 to see what I mean). Wires and Nerve, Volume 1 is some of the best of what graphic novels have to offer. A great choice for fans of the Lunar Chronicles series as well as readers looking for a new sci-fi comic to enjoy. Possible Pairings: Dove Arising by Karon Bao, The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow, Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray, The Diabolic by S. J. Kincaid, A Confusion of Princes by Garth Nix

Wires and Nerve is a graphic novel spin-off of Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series. You all know how much I love that series, so of course I had to read this book. It was my first graphic novel (well except the ones I read with my son). The main character is Iko, Cinder’s side-kick android friend. The story takes place between the battle on Luna at the end of Winter and the wedding story from Stars Above. Basically, it covers the clean up of all of the wolf soldiers on Earth. Iko is a bounty hunter of sorts. It’s pretty fun. I enjoyed this book because I’m a huge fan of the series, but I don’t know that it would hold up very well on it’s own. Also, it’s the first book in a two-part mini-series, so there wasn’t as much action as I was hoping there would be. It does feature cameos by all of the characters from The Lunar Chronicles, and there’re a couple of new characters – good and bad. The illustrations were fine, although I mainly just focused on the text and plowed through it in one day (maybe only 2 hours). I recommend this book for fans of the series. Otherwise, you can probably skip this one. (But, seriously, if you haven’t read the original series, go read Cinder right now. Also, know that the books get better and better as the series progresses, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t love the first book. I didn’t the first time I read it.) http://opinionatedbooklover.com/review-wires-nerve-marissa-meyer/

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