Love Marissa Meyer's Books

rtalps Oct 10, 2017

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!

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

Wires and Nerve fills in the years between Cinder's coronation and the happily ever after of the Lunar Chronicle series. The first volume of this graphic novel does so, namely through the eyes of the affable android Iko. The decision to create a standalone side story featuring her, rather than doing an adaptation of the trilogy is much appreciated, for Iko was one of the most intriguing characters among a cast that was quite unique. Already, there are several instances in which her personality shines as she plays the part of a covert wolf "hunter" for Cinder. All the cast make appearances, and the perspective shifts at varying points to detail what is happening in the world, but it is Iko whom we finally get to learn more about. Like the main books, Wires and Nerve addresses some serious issues; the prejudice of the people of earth towards androids (and Iko with her "defective" personality chip) is at the root. But these topics are wrapped in plenty of action, romantic tension, and fun. Holgate's blue-toned illustrations are forthright and stylized in a way that is sure to appeal to the core fan base teens. Characters are depicted in a way that fits Meyer's descriptions, and action sequences are made of brief vignettes so that the focus remains on these individuals, especially their development and their relationships. Because of the central importance of "character", Wires and Nerve is best read after the original trilogy. While the story can be understood by itself, most of the significance of the group's actions and interactions would be lost without the background. Overall this is a very good start, and a must read for any who enjoyed the Lunar Chronicles books.

If you're a fan of Meyer's Cinder series, than its continuation in graphic format will certainly appeal. Especially since it features everyone's favourite, spunky android. LOVED!
