Iko – an audacious android and best friend to the Lunar Queen Cinder – has been tasked with hunting down Alpha Lysander Steele, the leader of a rogue band of bioengineered wolf-soldiers who threaten to undo the tenuous peace agreement between Earth and Luna. Unless Cinder can reverse the mutations that were forced on them years before, Steele and his soldiers plan to satisfy their monstrous appetites with a massacre of the innocent people of Earth.
And to show he’s serious, Steele is taking hostages.
Cinder and Kai, Scarlet and Wolf, Cress and Thorne, and Winter and Jacin all feature in this epic new battle. But it is Iko who must face her deepest fears when she uncovers the truth about her own unusual programming.
I love this series! The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favourite series, so I’m so excited about this graphic novel series!
The first volume was an introduction to the characters. It was a little hard to get used to seeing what they really look like, because I imagined some of them differently. Also I keep getting Thorne and Jacin mixed up… until they speak! (Thorne is very full of himself and is always looking for attention whereas Jacin is quiet.)
This volume jumped right into the action. They have a new villain to defeat, Steele who was one of Levana’s hybrids. He really reminded me of Count Olaf from The Series of Unfortunate Events. He looked a lot like him.
I enjoyed the flashbacks in the story. The characters revisited many places from the original story, which were nice to finally see in pictures. Linh Garan also made a few appearances in saved video files. In those, he describes how Iko was created, which was intense because it was difficult for her to handle.
This is a great story, and I really hope the story continues!
Here’s my review for Wires and Nerve, Volume 1.
