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.


It was so lovely to get back into The Lunar Chronicles universe! And it was definitely fun in graphic novel form, my only real complain is that you speed through it so much faster than a novel and I wasn’t ready for it to end yet/have to wait for the next volume!

If you don’t know, Wires and Nerve is kind of like a spin-off featuring our ever sassy android Iko! The story is set right after the events in Winter, with Iko assisting Cinder in taking down the rogue wolf-hybrid soldiers that still roam earth. The best part is we get to catch up with the whole gang, but especially Thorne and Cress (who are friggin cute).

I really enjoyed getting to see how everything is playing out after the “happily ever after” victory for the gang and the continuing development of the Lunar universe. This graphic novel highlighted Iko as she trying to find her place as android that isn’t your typical android. She’s sassy and confident and I love that she speaks her mind. And Meyer teases us a little more with this potential romantic hate-love spark between Iko and Kinney that’s just got me all giggly! I’m definitely excited to see where this relationship goes.

“I misread the romantic tension, Didn’t I?”

Because Iko is with Thorne and Cress, we get to see a bit more of them and I enjoyed their development! Wires and Nerve also set up a lot of other intriguing story lines for the rest of the characters. I’m looking forward to more Scarlet and Wolf, and some actual Cinder and Kai time together. Overall, this was a fun read that takes me back me a series I love but also build up the universe more. Definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of the Lunar Chronicles.

  13. Some graphic novel adaptations of full-length, traditional novels can feel a bit too brief for me, but it sounds like Wires and Nerve knocked it out of the park! I will always look forward to more Scarlet and Wolf, because they’re everything. 😍
