Wires and Nerve Book Review


good objects

This ended way too soon. My first ever graphic novel- sequel to my forever favorite Lunar Chronicles series, Wires and Nerve was so much better than I initially expected! I don’t know where to begin:
Getting to see the characters I’ve been obsessed with for over a year was so overwhelming! Not to mention, finally getting to see the Rampion, the Farm, and LUNA!
CRESSWELL! Holy hell, I was fangirling so hard (was I the only one to realize how hot Thorne looked, that was literally how I imagined he’d look like). I laughed so hard when the (half) squad went to that escort-droid supply warehouse in L.A. and Thorne saw his escort-droid self and starting swooning! Then I started fangirling when Cress began reasoning with him about how stupid it would actually be if he bought it. It was all too much.
Then of course, back to France, on the farm, where Wolf was being his adorable hopeless-romantic self.
Cinder was amazing as always. I admired her plans considering Luna’s future. I wanted a Cinder-Kai scene, so I’m expecting lots of those in Volume 2.
I know it’s weird, but I actually sort of miss crazy-Winter. Winter was like this totally responsible ambassador here. I love how she’d always harass anyone who’s being overly formal, and order them to just call her Winter.
IKO was totally badass. I have lots of expectations on how she’s going to end up*
This was so good! Yes, it ended too soon but the only thing keeping me sane right now is the fact that there’s another volume (and another one after that, hopefully).


*evolve into an actual person maybe? Is that too hopeful of me? Wishful thinking?




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.

    YES YES YES, NADWA. You said everything my fangirling heart felt but couldn’t form into actual words, lol. That droid warehouse was literally the best, and I think I actually lol-ed a few times. And I suppppppppper agree about crazy Winter. Like, she was just so normal, and I just kept blinking at her going, when is she going to start howling? Why isn’t she singing? I totally miss it. XD But still so much love. And Cresswell was everything. My heart. The feelssssss. Wonderful, wonderful review, Nadwa, and I’m glad it finally found its way to you.

      OMG I’d literally write a totally different review if you’d ask me to write one the next day😂 I always have so much to say, especially when it comes to TLC! So I can definitely relate to the “You said everything my fangirling heart felt but couldn’t form into actual words” thing. And I’m so glad I finally got the book (it was so expensive btw and took ages to be delivered, but it was definitely worth it). And I cannot begin expressing my love and adoration towards Cresswell. All that popped into my head while reading a Cresswell scene was CUTENESS OVERLOAD!! Thank you so much! I’m so happy you liked it. Can’t wait for Volume 2. I think we’ll keep reminding each other about it, so there’s no way we’re going to miss the release date! 😂💘

    I totally felt like Meyer was trying to make up for Cresswell being nonexistent in Stars Above, and I totalllllllllllllllllllllly loved every single second of it. As you said, cuteness overload for sureeeeeeeeee. And lol, I’m so sorry it took ages and cost so much, but as you said, totally worth it. We will definitelllllllllllllllly have to have a countdown. I’m down for it. XD
