The first graphic novel from #1 New York Times and USA Today bestseller Marissa Meyer!

In her first graphic novel, bestselling author 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.


Wires and Nerve is a fun read! Fans of The Lunar Chronicles have to read this!

Wires and Nerve is a graphic novel that had everything I love about The Lunar Chronicles: action, humor and friendship.  In this book Iko takes centerstage and I enjoyed spending time with my favorite android.  Iko takes on a new role to hunt down rogue wolf-hybrid soldiers that are causing havoc on Earth. I loved Iko’s kick ass moves and her devotion to her friends. Since this is in her POV we also see a more personal side of Iko and how she deals with the discrimination because she’s an android.

I loved everything about this book. The story had excitement, this was a quick read and fans get to see more of their favorite characters from this series. I can’t wait to read the next book.

Here is a teaser from the book. I’m new to graphic novels and I liked the images. They are in blue, black and white which isn’t distracting and they depicted the scenes perfectly. I’ve listened to the series as audiobooks so now I have a voice and image to refer to these characters. This was a quick read so now I want to add more graphic novels to my reading list.

      I’m not a big fan either but I also love Iko. And this graphic novel was entertaining and the dialogue was easy for me to follow (I usually get confused with which sentence comes first lol). And it was really fast to read! It was 240 pages but each page was short to read. So I might look for more graphic novels to help me get to my goal for the Goodreads Reading Challenge lol. Thanks Katherine!!

  1. I love the Lunar Chronicles and Iko, and I want to read this… but the last graphic novel I read really didn’t do much for me, so I’m a little nervous. I’m so verbal, I really prefer reading the words and watching the story play out like a movie in my head. But it’s IKO…

      I’m not a fan of graphic novels but this was good and easy to follow the dialogue. I love Iko so seeing her in action was a lot of fun =)
