In her first graphic novel, #1 New York Times and USA Today bestseller Marissa Meyer follows Iko, the beloved android from the Lunar Chronicles, on a dangerous and romantic new adventure -- with a little help from Cinder and the Lunar team.

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 and the rest of the Rampion crew, this is a must-have for fans of the bestselling series.
I don't read many graphic novels, so when I do, it's bound to be something special. Wires and Nerves follows the story of Iko, the loyal and lovable droid from Marissa Meyer's bestselling series, The Lunar Chronicles. Iko is a wonderful character that probably didn't get enough credit in the book series so I'm really glad her story is finally being told in graphic novel form.

For someone that's accustomed to novels, reading graphic novels seems like cheating, like I'm speed reading through the story. So I think it's unfair when I say that the story felt too short because I know graphic novels take more time and space. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed this graphic novel and it's a great extension to the series.

One thing I really appreciated is that all main character from the four Lunar Chronicle books are represented in this story. Obviously Iko shines and is the narrator too, but I think it was important to include everyone. Iko, a droid with a human-like body, is charged with the task of searching and arresting all the wolf-hybrid soldiers deployed on Earth by the ex-Queen of Luna, that have been hurting and killing people all over the world. So far, Iko's record is pretty good but some have resisted, unaware that they are being brought back to Luna for a fair trial, not as slaves to the new Queen.

Searching and fighting are things Iko knows how to do, however love and feelings might not be part of her programming. She is a hopeless romantic, fawning over princes and bad boys, but as a service droid, she has always thought love as something unobtainable. So it will be fun to follow her romantic storyline in sequel since the creators leave us on a pretty steep cliffhanger.

The art is very well done however a little bit simple. It's easy to follow and very well organized. Obviously, it would have been better in colour, and at that price point, you kind of expected it to be coloured. However, the grey tone kind of fits the lunar theme so it might have been a deliberate choice. I highly recommend Wires and Nerves to any fans of The Lunar Chronicles but for those of you who haven't read the books, you might not appreciate it as much and might be a little lost in the story.
