don t make the mistake of thinking this is a completely separate story The protagonist here is Iko, the charming and as you will soon see badass android that s been with Cinder from the very beginning And it was really enjoyable The characters we know and love all make an appearance, and Meyer s trademark humour keeps the story light between the royal politics and drama Iko is now a hunter, searching for rogue wolf hybrids all over the world She also has to deal with being the forgotten hero , her name kept out of the history books because she is an android, and therefore not considered a real person Her behaviour and feelings are constantly being questioned her fiery temper considered a malfunction and her emotions considered artificial.This series is a whole lot of light silliness, easy to digest science fiction, and romance, but underneath there s a constant subtle nod to the outsiders those who have had to fight to be heard or taken seriously because of who they are I like that.Plus, getting a visual of this diverse cast of characters was wonderful the Chinese Cinder and Kai, the black Iko and Winter, and the white Scarlet, Cress and Thorne Perhaps the only thing missing from this series is some good LGBT representation I was secretly hoping that for Iko, but I guess I ll deal with Kinney for now The love hate between the two of them is perfect Blog Facebook

Scarlet, Kai, or Wolf, but they do come in at the end Most of the plot focuses on Cinder getting ready to abdicate her throne to form a republic while Iko hunts down rogue Lunar special operatives and meets up with Cress Thorne.I ve told a lot of adults and grandparents to read The Lunar Chronicles because they re fun for all ages, but this book definitely felt like I was too old for the target audience at times A lot of scenes were either cringeworthy or just not the same characters And I really wasn t that big on the illustrations, either So I think this will be really fun for the right audience, but it s not something I d recommend for everyone who loved The Lunar Chronicles The story and characters aren t a very strong continuation of the book series this graphic novel is kind of doing its own thing now And that s not bad I m just pretty neutral on it overall flag 259 likesLike see review View all 22 comments Apr 26, 2016 Melissa Dog Wolf Lover Martin rated it really liked it

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.Iko was one of my favorite members of the group, so I loved that her wit and humor was translated so well into this graphic novel format She s as brave and loyal as ever fighting for her true friend and queen And my love for this crew is exhilarating.Speaking of love, here are some of favorite moments Love her side commentary than ever Iko s not kidding around To quote the blurb, she s a badass with a heart of mechanized gold I was glad to see that good ol humor of hers along with her love for Kai hadn t changed I loved Thorne with every bit of my heart in TLC But I found that his trademark snark and direct remarks seemed kind of forced in here.But thankfully his love for Cress is still alive and well And so is her love for the net dramas As well as Iko s Though said love didn t always bring them into the best situations My queen, Selene Blackburn of Luna, educating the world Side note the art style took a bit to get used to because it wasn t even close to how I d imagined the characters, especially the way Wolf was depicted But over time it became less noticeable once I got into the swing of the story AH Wolf s still the sweetest Speaking of I loved this moment so much All in all I would say that even though it took me a bit to get through this volume, my love for the Rampion crew slowly but surely resurfaced Iko Cinder Winter Cress Thorne Kai Wolf Jacin all have a special place in my heart And I simply

seeing the changes she makes her struggles with the organization The interaction with the wolf operatives felt plausible and different from what we d previously read Iko is just as great as ever Her loyalty and friendship and such a strong presence on every page, but I also love her self confidence and determination She s also still hilarious It s all my babies And they are alive and well mostly and in happy relationships It s just great, okay Cress and Thorne have a really strong presence in this, and their relationship is still surprisingly cute to me A bit much in places, but their traveling misadventures were great to see The new characters really added fun dynamics I enjoyed seeing Kinney s sister and especially loved meeting Thorne s parents Cons I kind of hate Kinney Like I get he s the love interest and it s supposed to be hate to love and all that jazz But he absolutely believes Iko is less than human and treats her as such That s a really uncomfortable dynamic to me For some reason this recaps everything from the previous books, and this made no sense to me Why would I be reading this spin off if I hadn t read the actual series A lot of the characters felt off. Scarlet felt really muted while Thorne was a little silly in places It was never enough to be awful, but just enough it was notable The color scheme of the artwork was cool, but I didn t care for much else Wolf especially doesn t look anything like I pictured My other problem is that most everyone had the same faces I can t find a great example of the art work, but look at how similar some of the guys are ThorneKaiIko top , Thorne bottom right , Kinney bottom left I m struggling to grab art here, but almost everyone had the same shaped face and nose, with just very minute details changed It wasn t that it looked cartoonesque, it was just everyone was so similarIn Summary It s great to be back in this world, but it s just not the same. I m here for Iko being precious and kicking butt Aka I m still Lunar Chronicles trash flag 91 likesLike see review View all 18 comments Feb 05, 2017 Trina Between Chapters rated it it was amazing

better despite the fact that this series is very well known, it could have been good looking.In fact, what I liked is seeing the same old characters from TLR, and you have no idea how much I miss them However, the junctions between the scenes are not smooth as I hoped it d be I felt as though sometimes the story was just left out like that instead of having gimmicks like other comics Well, I did enjoy this book I was fond of Iko since Cinder, her character still has many stories waiting to be told and I can see those potentials the author would pick up and use for the next book or series Can t wait for book two.All in all, if you re a fan of TLC, don t miss this book This is a filler of what happens before the epilogue in Star Above and it makes the main story perfect Plus, I can remember when I read Winter, I thought that the way Cinder struggled to change Lunar s government wasn t mentined that much So Wires and Nerve will answer these questions how much Cinder has tried to manage

my heart So yeah, I was slightly nervous going into this graphic novel to say the least And I am RELIEVED at how wonderful this installment actually was Wires and Nerve takes place a short while after Winter, but definitely before the final novella in Stars Above The illustrations of the characters were cute, and fun And the diversity within the pages was finally apparent with the Asian Cinder and Kai, and black Winter and Iko YES Iko The snark and sass played a huge role in each character along with Marissa Meyer s trademark cute, squeal worthy romantic scenes cough c mon now Kinney cough And despite the fact that Wires and Nerve is a graphic novel, Meyer still managed to include the internal struggles her characters must learn to endure and eventually overcome And I love that about her books.I was actually surprised that the additional characters were present as much as they were While Iko s storyline remained the center of attention, every character we know and love from The Lunar Chronicles was just as important as our main android Cue excessive fangirling My heart could hardly take it I will say, the only negative I can think of is an inconsistency Thorne seemed different than he did in TLC books I don t know if it was just me, but it seemed like he was lacking his usual charm and sarcasm So, yes, my only true dislike was the slight disconnect from the characters as a whole but it was minor enough that I didn t notice it all the time I am definitely ready for the next volume because WTF was that cliffhanger And I am sooooooo ready for some Iko Liam Kinney my ship

series I m too scared to reread the books, because I m 97% certain they won t hold up, but I recall them with some degree of fondness I cited it as my favorite series for a while before realizing that was, no question, not even a little bit true.Still, I loved them So of course I m cursed to forever pick up any addition to that series forever Marissa Meyer has me on the hook, and unless I begin that formidable reread and it turns out to be as massive a disappointment as I suspect, upon that hook I will remain.I didn t, like, love this book I didn t even like it strongly I found it pretty eh Will I pick up the sequel Indubitably How long is this series I m scared So is my wallet That being said, I read it in a sitting and didn t hate it And it s the little things like that you re grateful for when your reading year is progressing like mine By which I mean, very behind on my reading challenge giving out one star ratings like it s my job Let s get into it.For startersI don t like the art very much It s VERY cartoonish, which is cute, but all the characters look exactly the same They just have slightly different hairstyles And it s weird for the caption to be all this is the most beautiful girl in the galaxy while the picture is of a head with a glorified smiley face on it Too mean It s not bad It s just not my cup of teaand I d argue not the right choice for a story like this But that s just my opinion I say, as if everything I ever write on this site is anything than my dumb opinions The characters just felt dull If I m remembering the original books in The Lunar Chronicles correctly, the characters are vibrant They re funny and amusing and it s cool to get to follow them around Well, not Scarlet Or Wolf Or Cinder and Kai, most of the time My god, why did I love those books so much But Cress and Thorne usually guarantee a good time And Iko is a funny little thing.I d argue Iko is the most true to my memory of her of the bunch, but even she is toned down Thorne is VERY different I swear I can feel the author trying to recapture Thorne s voice, and justnot getting there It s upsetting All the characters become so flat And that definitely wasn t a problem in the original series.Plot wise, this wasn t terrible. I was a bit bored, but that s fair this is the setting up of what is supposed to be a series, maybe We follow Iko as she s trying to capture the wolf soldiers leftover from a past storyline in hiding on Earth Every once in awhile we meet up with another member of the gang It s fine But then some tough wolf guy is like, oh, I don t think so I m going to kill all of you and get all the other remaining wolf people on my side Oooooh, not that simple, bitches Here s the thing, though and hear me out on this I m kind of on Professor Wolfdude s side.He s all, Hey, you guysthis is kind of f cked Like, we were made into wolf people against our will, which was straight torturous, and then enslaved and forced to kill people And guys, it s not even our faults that we now thirst for human flesh And now the new queen, who s supposed to be all nice, is just capturing us And like, killing us if we maybe don t want to go back to the place where a ton of bad shit happened to us Nah I m not into it And Iko s response is pretty much You re wrong ahhhh I ll kill you harder now So I m not even rooting for the intended people here But I digress.Other than thatoh yeah The romance this series prides itself upon Every single character is matched up with another character HETEROSEXUALLY, GUYS If you were worried about LGBTQ people getting representation here, DON T It s like 1794 but in space.What was I saying Right So the relationships are boring here The narrator just tells us we should think they re cute, in the hopes that we do But I m rebellious and quirky and cool, so it s not that easy, Meyer Also, I am against the new love interest introduced here, Liam x Iko, with everything that I am Liam inherently believes that Iko is incapable of emotion and that robots shouldn t have rights, and we re supposed to be like, aw Cute That s not the same thing as hate to love. I would make a comparison here, but it would be toeing the line at best and clearly something is off with me today so I m just going to wrap this up.Even though this book had problems, I didn t hate it I kind of disliked it and found it to be a disappointment, but disappointed is my go to emotion now, baby Wow, this review is truly a ride Sorry about that And I m not even going to include GIFs I m a mess.Bottom line I read this in a sitting and didn t despise it with every cell in my body, so it s getting two stars But man, this book was somethin flag 63 likesLike see review View all 14

novel follows Iko, the sassy, fashion crazy android and Cinder s best sidekick In this book Iko is hunting down rogue packs of wolf hybrids Iko as a secret agent is everything I could ever want She s a brilliant, awesome narrator whom I couldn t get enough of.As an android, Iko is tired of people underestimating her and saying her feelings aren t real because she s made of metal instead of flesh and blood She cares so passionately about her friends and would do anything for them.The characters couldn t be perfect, and now, in art form, we get to see new details of them Like, I never imagined Wolf looking so monstrous I always kind of imagined him as a hugely muscular, hot guy with fangs, to be honest So when I saw the drawings portraying him as a slightly scary, beastly person, Scarlet s love for him seemed so much sincere They seriously melted my heart.All the other characters were just as heartwarming, from the lovable, awkward mechanic, Cinder, to the cutest computer hacker ever, Cress, the wise Princess Winter now an ambassador , and Thorne, who was just as swoony and self absorbed as ever.Really, this book had Marissa Meyer written all over it, from the action sequences,

and get all their puppy men because they may want to control them with their minds How about a robot named Iko I think this volume was a great start to the series It s really hard to transition from one art form to the next, as you all are well away from books to movies or books to television series Graphic Novel transitions aren t any different Iko was portrayed really well I thought Her personality really came through and I liked that she was the main focus of the series She was the only one who didn t pair up in the series so I thought maybe she deserved her happily ever after I also thought she was one of a kind because she was an android with an actual personality.Other characters, I didn t think were portrayed very well Example Thorne First, he looked like a teenage boy Second, he seemed kind of spineless and like a teenage boy instead of the space pirate I fell in love with For such a pretty world, I thought maybe the illustrations didn t really fit the story Standing by themselves, I liked the illustrations But for something from The Lunar Chronicles, I expected a little.etty That might just be me though.Overall, I thought it was a good start I went into the graphic novel knowing there were going to be some bumps since we are transitioning into a different from of story telling, and I can tell you it went a lot smoother I can t wait to read the second

Wires Nerve Honestly, I struggled not to start it immediately Though, when I did start it I finished it in an hour, so there s that.The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favourite series and I am not shy about screaming it from the rooftops So, a companion novel is excellent I m not usually a big comic book reader either but for some reason, this was screaming at me to pick it up and read it I m so glad I did.Literally, my only complaint about this graphic novel is the characters didn t look like how I had imagined them so I kept getting caught up on panels and going who Honestly, that s it My own imagination.I m not even sure how to go about reviewing this I guess dot points may be the best way because I can say what I want without expending too much this review would be really short, I have no idea how to extend my thoughts so let s go Iko is a great lead she didn t have a major part in The Lunar Chronicles besides being Cinder s sister like character, but she deserved of a spotlight The illustrations are gorgeous I loved seeing of Cress and Throne seeing there are consequences to her having lived most of her life in a satellite her immune system sucks There wasn t much Scarlet or Wolf which I loved because I didn t really like them, honestly, they were so boring Winter joking about how sickness now that she has an implant The fact someone doesn t have to have read The Lunar Chronicles to read this Obviously, its suggested but things are explained so if someone wanted to pick this up with no prior knowledge of the series, they could An amazingly engaging storyline It is mainly just set up for the next book but it is so good Marissa Meyer just has such an engaging writing style, even in comic formI think that s basically everything that can be said Wires Nerve is a great companion novel for the Lunar Chronicles world and I highly suggest it if you have read the series already It is a quick read that sucks you in and keeps you wondering I m glad

empezar, nos presentan a un grupo de personajes, pero no nos contextualizan en cuanto al mundo en el que la historia se desarrolla.Y si ya se lo que es 1 Fan Service STARUnpopular OpinionSi son fans de la serie Cr nicas Lunares, posiblemente esta rese a no les va a gustar.Esta es la peor novela gr fica que he le do Esta novela nos la est n vendiendo como VOLUMEN 1, pero la gran verdad es que este libro no se puede sostener por si solo No funciona como un libro base, standalone o spin off Al empezar, nos presentan a un grupo de personajes, pero no nos contextualizan en cuanto al mundo en el que la historia se desarrolla.Y si ya se lo que est n a punto de decir, que fue mi culpa por leer este libro sin haber le do los dem s Pero les recuerdo si este libro es un VOLUMEN 1, yo no tendr a por qu necesitar de los otros libros.Ahora hablemos de la historia central.SPOILER ALERTLa historia se supone que se basa en Iko, un androide, que es mejor amiga de la Reyna lunar, y decide viajar a la tierra a cazar a las manadas de hibrido hombres lobo que est n aterrorizando a las personas de la tierra.Ok, el inicio se presentaba prometedor, ver a Iko pelear, fue lo mejor del libro Pero casi no se ve, porque cada 5 paginas meten a uno de los 9 h roes, que si la Reyna lunar no quiere ser Reyna, que si el Capitan no quiere ir a la celebraci n en su honor, que si el emperador Que al final era obvio la autora meti a estos personajes como fans service, no porque de verdad fueran necesarios para la historia.Ahora mi mayor problema con la historia es que fue imposible determinar el tono Es violenta como para ser middle grade, pero los personajes son demasiado infantiles como para ser Young Adult.Y hablando de eso Uff que fastidio, que durante todo el libro no pude deducir cuantos a os tienen los personajes En una escena dicen que Cinder es adolescente, por lo que quiero suponer que todos son mas o menos de esa edad, pero es tan dif cil cre rmelo Ya que tienen actitudes muy infantiles, que parec an m s ni os de 12 a os Ejemplo, el supuesto condecorado Captain Carswell, que antes era bandido y traidor y yada yada, la forma en que reacciona al ver un androide igual a l es completamente rid cula, o peor a n c mo reacciona al reencontrarse con sus padres, es tan est pido Como me voy a creer que seg n ha hecho todo eso, si lo veo actuar de esa manera.Y ni que decir del emperador de la Tierra, rasc ndose la cabeza al estar confundido, como si fuera un ni ito hablando de su crush.La historia est llena de chistecillos forzados, que no causan ninguna gracia Y vamos que no soy amargada, adoro los libros divertidos Pero esta novela no tiene una historia central que la sostenga, y las historias secundarias est n demasiado dispersas.Adem s, en la sinopsis nos hablan de un supuesto romance El cual no vemos, para nada Iko y K nney est n juntos solo como en 3 escenas, y lo nico medio rom ntico es en una p gina, y no, no estoy exagerando.Esto es todo el romance que vemos en este libro, SOLO UNA PAGINA view spoiler hide spoiler Ahora mi mayor molestia contra esta novela LOS GRAFICOS.En serio que he visto fan art mucho mas trabajados que los gr ficos de esta novela Para empezar la paleta de colores es en tonos de grises, si fuera un libro nost lgico o de terror entender a porque utilizaron esos tonos, pero la verdad no le vi sentido Al ser un libro que trata demasiado de ser divertido, un poco mas de color hubiera encajado mucho mejor.La representaci n de cada personaje es por dem s simplista, no tienen ning n detalle, nada que los haga especiales, todos los personajes se parecen, solo se diferencian por el cabello, pero en si las caracter sticas de rostro y cuerpo son los mismos.En conclusi n Sin duda, este mundo me llama la atenci n y posiblemente lea los libros de la serie, pero que horrible adaptaci n hizo este ilustrador flag 32 likesLike see review View all 14 comments Feb 01, 2016 Errin rated it really liked it review of

imagining to be honest, but the art is quite adorable They all look cute and rather goofy Wolf, Winter, and Iko are my favorite designs Further, I can appreciate that we get to see the facial

The Lunar Chronicles I am still deeply invested in this series, so I will gladly read anything that would delay the inevitable goodbye.Even so, I did not give Wires and Nerve five stars simply because there was a part of me that recognized the capitalist intention behind its publication Winter is 824 pages long because I presume the author wants to give us a complete sense of closure she even released a bonus epilogue in Stars Above to further solidify the happy ending we d been yearning for Hence, I felt bummed to read about Cinder and Co solving another conflict One would think they ve had than their fair share of political, interplanetary problems When I come to think of it, Stars Above should have been published after Wires and Nerve This might sound confusing, but the events in Wires and Nerve actually happen before the bonus epilogue in Stars Above In other words, Stars Above is a spoiler to Wires and Nerve I realized this in Chapter 7, the part where Scarlet and Wolf finally make a cameo appearance Overall, I m sad that I already have an idea about how the Wires and Nerve series is gonna end.Setting aside the latter issues, I did enjoy this graphic novel Iko was a cool and badass protagonist, and it was touching to know what she really thought about her comrades Prejudice against androids was still present her society, so I was also moved by her desire to prove her humanity and worth to the people of Earth As for Iko s relationship with Liam Kinney, I found it be strange yet intriguing Does that also make me prejudiced against androids You tell me Haha.I also liked this novel because it gave depth to Cinder s character It was fun to witness her knack for politics, as well as her bravery in the midst of the royals who foolishly treated her with condescension Even though Cinder wasn t the star of the show any, I loved that she was still given much screen time The same goes for our beloved Cress and Thorne They definitely gave the story a touch of sweetness In the end, Scarlet and Wolf were the true cameos they only appeared in the last chapter Ultimately, Wires and Nerve isn t necessarily an essential addition or extension to The Lunar Chronicles Nevertheless, if you re a hardcore fan of the series, I wouldn t dare dissuade you from reading it.P.S I bought the Kindle edition as a compromise I did not want to pay 22 dollars for

    1. I loved it It s just a shame that graphic novels are over so quickly and now we must wait a whole year for the sequel Wires and Nerve picks up shortly after the end of Winter It is basically the fifth book in the Lunar Chronicles and does contain spoilers for all previous books so if you haven t finished the others don t make the mistake of thinking this is a completely separate story The protagonist here is Iko, the charming and as you will soon see badass android that s been with Cind I [...]


    2. That was kind of odd I tried to go into it with low expectations and not compare it with The Lunar Chronicles books since it s a different format But most of the characters didn t seem like themselves especially Thorne and the tone was drastically different I did love how well Iko s personality came through in her narration And it was fun to see familiar characters together again except I really wasn t huge on Thorne here He turned into a wimpy tween boy and went from being my favorit Tha [...]

    5. 3 StarsOverview Maaannn I was really hoping I d love this I didn t hate it, but I definitely didn t love it either Still Lunar Chronicles trash tho Pros I enjoyed the overall plot and seeing what happened once Cinder took the throne It s great seeing the changes she makes her struggles with the organization The interaction with the wolf operatives felt plausible and different from what we d previously read Iko is just as great as ever Her loyalty and friendship and such a strong presence [...]


    6. Loved this Iko was one of my favorite characters from this series so I m thrilled she s getting her own story I also loved seeing the whole gang again If you re wondering exactly where this fits in the story line, it happens after Winter will completely spoil the ending but before the extra epilogue that was included in Stars Above.
