This just seems like fanservice, the story is lackluster, because the author focuses on saying "YASS the droid is QUEEN" and making sure to say that friendship is magic. Which is dumb for me.

I love revisiting Meyer's world of The Lunar Chronicles. After having read the four major novels (Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter) I was thrilled to see that the story continued in graphic novel form- an easy way to digest the story and see the characters that I've been reading about for so long. Most of them look the way I'd imagined them. They also act as expected, and as previously described in the novels. The art here is also beautiful and fits the story and the characters well. The plot is a little cliche and not very interesting, but we're here for the continuation of the relationships, after all, and I, personally, am not necessarily looking to invest myself in another huge, life-threatening plot involving Cinder, Scarlet, Iko, and all the rest. Speaking of the android, I felt as though there was way too much of her here, while other characters like Cress and Thorne barely got any page time at all. Yes, she's on the cover, yes, I understand it goes along with the title, but I'm not really as interested in her as I am the others. All in all, a cute, uplifting, refreshing read for those who have read the series and want to dive back into the Lunar Chronicles world.

Wires and Nerve volume 2 is a great sequel to volume 1, bringing Iko's story to a satisfying conclusion. If you loved the Lunar Chronicles, but aren't necessarily a graphic novel fan, I highly recommend giving Wires and Nerve a chance! The graphics add an interesting dimension to the story and it's fun to reconnect with all your favorite characters from the series like Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter.

Awesome - I liked the art which lent itself well to the story and it was nice to get caught up with the characters from the Lunar Chronicles. I'm now waiting for part 2...

I was very excited to dive back into the world of the Lunar Chronicles- to catch up with all of the characters and see what's been happening now that Levana is gone and Cinder is queen. I was disappointed in this graphic novel, for several reasons. The art isn't that great. The characters are depicted as angular, with lots of straight lines and elongated faces. They're all ridiculously thin, and not very attractive. Thorne, Kinney and Jacin all look the same, with very little differentiation. Also, there's not much color. It's all blue and white, which makes it difficult to read at times.
The story focuses on Iko rounding up the rest of the rogue wolves that were sent to Earth by Levana. The villain is basing his ire on a misunderstanding, which is not my favorite plot device. Thorne is now a one-dimensional character, and Cinder still has misgivings even after 7 months as queen. We hardly see any of Scarlet and Wolf, who are my favorites.
All in all, I'm glad this exists, but I was really hoping for more. I'll continue, but I won't be on the edge of my seat waiting for the next to be released.

It's a good book.
The problem I have with it is that Steele feels like that he was made in a melting pot and just given to us.
And I also pictured some of the characters differently.

IKO is back! In this sequel to Wires & Nerve, IKO's mission of hunting down Alpha Steele and his team of mutant wolf soldiers becomes more difficult when he threatens the one's she loves. But with a little help from the stubborn Liam Kinney, IKO faces her deepest fears and uncovers the mystery of her unusual programming. I really enjoyed this graphic novel. It had the satisfying conclusion that we wanted, thrilling action scenes, and a happy ending that gave me those nostalgic vibes. My favourite character by far has to be Liam Kinney, purely on his character development throughout the books. A quick read by far, but worth every page. 5 Stars

The Wires and Nerve graphic novels have been one of the most effective series sequels I've seen. Far more satisfying that the Stars Above short story collection, this duology does a nice job furthering the story and adventures of well-loved characters while advancing the story line of a new, yet familiar, main character to create something new. And what a fun character protagonist Iko is--she's warm, funny, and deeply loyal to her friends while still struggling with the existential plight of the self-aware android, not helped by humans who have a hard time seeing herself as anything other than a glorified robot. This installment had wonderful character development, tense moments of suspense, and delightful heist-like maneuvers on the part of our heroes. I enjoyed every moment of the ride.

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...

Iko – an audacious android and best friend to the Lunar Queen Cinder – has been tasked with hunting down Alpha Lysander Steele, the leader of a rogue band of bioengineered wolf-soldiers who threaten to undo the tenuous peace agreement between Earth and Luna. Unless Cinder can reverse the mutations that were forced on them years before, Steele and his soldiers plan to satisfy their monstrous appetites with a massacre of the innocent people of Earth.

And to show he’s serious, Steele is taking hostages.

Cinder and Kai, Scarlet and Wolf, Cress and Thorne, and Winter and Jacin all feature in this epic new battle. But it is Iko who must face her deepest fears when she uncovers the truth about her own unusual programming.

GREAT READ!

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 and the rest of the Rampion crew, this is a must-have for fans of the series.
