Wires and Nerve

Months have passed since the events in Winter that ended Queen Levana's rule on Luna.  Cinder is now the Lunar queen, Thorn and Cress are distributing the Letamosis cure all over earth, Scarlet and Wolf are revitalizing the family farm in France, Winter is the Lunar ambassador to earth, and Iko has found a new purpose.

Queen Levana's genetically modified wolf soldiers have gone rogue without her controlling influence, and someone has to bring them in.  Enter Iko, unsung hero of the revolution and loyal friend.

Iko's success rate is high, but there are always a few soldiers who escape.  They are unified under a charismatic leader, and they have a common enemy, Iko's best friend.

I am a huge fan of Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles, but I was concerned about the graphic novel continuation of the story wouldn't live up to the originals.  I am pleased to say I was wrong.  I absolutely loved volume one of this planned series.  Iko is a classy and sassy hero, and the android protagonist allows the author to explore new ideas about humanity and equality.  Highly recommended!
