Reading progress update: I've read 102 out of 208 pages.
Wires and Nerve, Volume 1 - Marissa Meyer,Douglas Holgate

This wasn't on my checklist for the scifi summer, but it does fit the guidelines. And I took my son to the library today, and saw they had volume 2. So what the heck. I will take a graphic novel break. I've been meaning to get to this forever anyway. The art style is so simple but likeable, and I totally want Iko to get with Kinney.

Such a bad read. So trashy, in the worst possible sense.

The conclusion of a totally O.K. follow-up to the Lunar Chronicles
Wires and Nerve, Volume 2: Gone Rogue - Marissa Meyer,Douglas Holgate,Stephen Gilpin

I'm really not sure what to say about this one. It's part two of the story begun in <b>Wires and Nerve</b> where Iko is tasked with hunting down rogue Lunar wolf warriors scattered over the Earth. We also see what reforms Cinder is bringing to the Lunar government and what happens to the rest of the main characters from <b>The Lunar Chronicles</b> following <b>Winter</b>.

 

Honestly, I think I'm going to just copy and paste from the last book, because this is really just part 2 of that same story and my comments stay the same:

 

The Lunar wolf warriors are not just going to roll over, there are some that are preparing to strike back against Iko -- and Cinder.

 

Throw in a love story, an examination of Iko's true nature, and some nice catch-up with our old friends, and you've got yourself a fun story. It's fun, but it's light. If it were prose instead of a graphic novel, it might take 40 pages to tell this story. Which doesn't make it bad, just slight.

 

I was shocked to see a different artist credited with this one -- maybe my memory is shakier than I realized, but man...I thought it was the same stuff. Gilpin did a great job keeping the look the same. Yeah, cartoonish -- but it fits the story. It's dynamic, eye catching and fun -- just what Iko's story should be.

 

I'm glad I read these two, but I hope Meyer walks away from this world now to focus on whatever's next. Read this if you read the first. If you're curious about what happens after <b>Winter</b>, these two are a fun way to scratch that itch, but totally unessential.

Wires and Nerve Vol. 2
Wires and Nerve, Volume 2: Gone Rogue - Marissa Meyer,Douglas Holgate,Stephen Gilpin

I loved this graphic novel! There was more action, a bit of romance, and of course, Meyer's fantastic humor. All the characters from the original Lunar Chronicles series are once again back battling a rogue band of hybrid wolf soldiers. 

 

At one point my heart stopped while reading this book. I was definitely on the edge of my seat with some of the twists and turns. If you enjoyed volume 1 you will really enjoy volume 2. The conclusion was satisfying and I was happy to see that this book was 86 pages longer than the last. I still had no problem reading the book in one sitting, but the bigger the book the happier I am.

 

I hope Meyer plans to create more graphic novels in the future. I had her newest book, Renegades all set to read next. I've been looking forward to it for quite some time, but I made the mistake of wandering into a bookstore, and two Meyer books later here we are. Not that I'm complaining! I am more than happy to have multiple Meyer books to read back to back.

Wires and Nerve Vol. 1
Wires and Nerve, Volume 1 - Marissa Meyer,Douglas Holgate

This was the very first graphic novel I've ever read! I have always been a little iffy at the thought of reading them until I went on a small book buying binge (as if I don't have a stack already waiting on me) and made the mistake of taking a peek inside this book. Not only reading about the cast of lovable characters, who I have missed so much from the Lunar Chronicles series, but seeing them was such a fantastic experience.

 

My favorite character is Iko, so having her take center stage in this action packed adventure was so much fun! Not only did I finish it far too quickly, despite taking my time to enjoy the artwork, but I then had to run back and get the second volume because I just had to know more about Iko and what makes her unique. I originally thought the book centered ONLY around Iko and her story after the events of the Lunar Chronicles series, but I was pleasantly surprised to see all the characters make appearances. 

 

Cinder is doing her best to rule Luna while Winter has become an ambassador, still as charming and sweet as ever. Thorne is just as hilariously into himself, and Scarlet and Wolf are the most adorable couple, quite comfortable living on the Benoit farm. One of my favorite illustrations in the book is of Wolf cutting up tomatoes in the kitchen and cooking with Scarlet. 

 

There are packs of wolf-hybrid soldiers running rampant on earth and Iko is doing her best to round them all up android/Lara Croft style. She is just as sassy and lovable as I remember her! The ending of this book left me wanting more, so naturally, I jumped straight into Wires and Nerve Vol. 2. My only complaint, is that this book was not nearly long enough. I thoroughly enjoyed this graphic novel, and I certainly won't be hesitant to pick up more.
