The second graphic novel, and sequel to Wires and Nerve, Volume 1, from #1 New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Marissa Meyer!

The world of the Lunar Chronicles comes alive in this thrilling continuation of Wires and Nerve. 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. Questions of love, friendship, and mortality take Iko on an emotional journey that will satisfy and delight fans of this bestselling series.

My Thoughts:

Yes! So much yes! I am a huge fan of The Lunar Chronicles and absolutely adored Wires and Nerve, Vol. 1. It was so great to get back into the new story and find out more about what happens next.

Oh how I love Iko. She is just such a great character. She stole the show for me in Cinder, and is one of the main reasons I fell so in love with the series. Getting more of her story is perfection. And I love that, just as the Lunar Chronicles books aren’t just about the title characters, this series catches the readers up on everyone. More Cinder, more Scarlet, more Cress, more Winter, more everyone!!!!

As with volume one, I loved the artwork and color in this one. The style really suits the characters and the story. The pacing and layout of the panels make this an engaging and easy to follow story. Since there are so many characters and so many different things going on that could have been really confusing! They did an excellent job making sure even inexperienced readers of graphic novels could enjoy these books.

A must read for fans of The Lunar Chronicles and an all around good story in it’s own right.
