I was very excited to dive back into the world of the Lunar Chronicles- to catch up with all of the characters and see what's been happening now that Levana is gone and Cinder is queen. I was disappointed in this graphic novel, for several reasons. The art isn't that great. The characters are depicted as angular, with lots of straight lines and elongated faces. They're all ridiculously thin, and not very attractive. Thorne, Kinney and Jacin all look the same, with very little differentiation. Also, there's not much color. It's all blue and white, which makes it difficult to read at times.
The story focuses on Iko rounding up the rest of the rogue wolves that were sent to Earth by Levana. The villain is basing his ire on a misunderstanding, which is not my favorite plot device. Thorne is now a one-dimensional character, and Cinder still has misgivings even after 7 months as queen. We hardly see any of Scarlet and Wolf, who are my favorites.
All in all, I'm glad this exists, but I was really hoping for more. I'll continue, but I won't be on the edge of my seat waiting for the next to be released.

It's a good book.
The problem I have with it is that Steele feels like that he was made in a melting pot and just given to us.
And I also pictured some of the characters differently.

Marissa Meyer has done it again!
Remember the guy who called Iko "That disturbing robot" ? You just can't hate that dude no matter how hard you try. I am pretty sure this takes place between the last "Stars Above" story and Winter. Sigh. I'm like 48th in line for volume 2. It's going to be a while...

Love Marissa Meyer's Books

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!

I read this so quickly, and it was over too soon. I'm so desperate for Volume 2 but I have to wait so long! I want to re-read already, and/or re-read the entire Lunar Chronicles series.
Iko is absolutely adorable. She was one of my favorites in the books, and I'm so glad she's getting the highlight of this one.
At first, I thought the simple drawing style/bluescale would be detrimental. I was disappointed when I first saw it because I was expecting a really detailed, colorful, glossy graphic novel. But not only did I get used to the art style, but came to really enjoy it. The characters are simple enough that you can almost fill in the details of how *exactly* they looked when you pictured them in the Lunar Chronicles.
Many ships were sailed.

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!
