I'm so sad this is over! I really hope Meyer and Gilpin team up to tell more graphic stories set in the Lunar Chronicles universe.

After a bumpy start, the Lunar Chronicles books became such a huge guilty pleasure of mine and these graphic novels were a real pleasant surprise, too. I usually find that graphic novel companions to major series either a) retell the main story, or b) tell an uninteresting side story/prequel just to drain more money out of fans. But Wires and Nerve and Gone Rogue are

UPDATE: 3/3/18 I got my signed art print of Iko yesterday! I love it. I framed her and put her on a shelf. I have added both pictures. =)

There is no doubt in my mind this was going to be 5 stars. I love this whole world and the two graphic novels are just awesome!

That Alpha Lysander Steele was a big ole arse though! I felt sorry for Wolf =(

It was awesome to see all of my friends again =)

Happy Reading!

Deciding to try out the Lunar Chronicles was one of the best reading decisions I ever made. Every single volume, every single story, every single character . . . all of them have been fantastic to go on a literary journey with. I think this is the perfect sci-fi YA series!

With the second volume of Wires & Nerve, the follow up graphic novel to the main book series continues. The main heroine of this story line, Iko, continues to help in the fight against the rogue wolf soldiers left over from Que

-Not enough Cress or Thorne.
-Too easily wrapped up in the end.

Uuggghhhhh I feel exhausted from this. Please stop with graphic novels and coloring books! You are messing with my brain! You are snatching away my pencil and paper as I draw fanart! You are now saying my imagining of the characters are WRONG!

You don't realize how much these characters mean to me. They are being murdered slowly with every stroke of the pen by the artist. This coloring book and these graphic novels will be their gravestones and the pieces of my broken heart will fill the graves.

So grateful for these graphic novels tbh so I could read more about this crew!! I love them so much ❤️ A perfect ending to one of the best series ever 🔥


No, really I have. HOWEVER, I was so freaking happy when I saw it on my kindle. FINALLY!

God, I've missed everyone in this wonderful lunar world!

Okay, I loved this book and I probably shouldn't have to type that out but I did. I mean.. come on. How could I not fall in love with book 2?

Iko is still a bad ass. Steele is still a crazy wolf hybrid in my mind and needs to stop thinking the worst of Cinder. CINDER

Although the art could have been better, the story was superb! Iko is still in search of proving her humanity while saving people from the rogue soldiers. Lots of action and romance.

I really enjoyed this volume of Wires and Nerve, although I am very sad that there is nothing left to read of The Lunar Chronicles. This has become one of my favorite series, and this graphic novel only helped to cement that.

I love all these characters so much, and it was great seeing them all team up again. I also loved the conclusion of the story and how this story (and volume one) bridged the gap between the end of Winter and the novella Something Old, Something New.

I definitely recommend t

It’s been a while since I read a book set in this world, and it feels so good to come back💜 I absolutely loved this new addition to the series, but it certainly left me wanting more! I wish she just decided to write more *cries in the Cinder and Kai’s weeding we deSERVE*

I am so happy! I can’t take Marissa Meyer enough for letting us have these wonderful amazing characters back for one adventure more.

It’s lovely, fun and full of heart. I loved seeing them again and I loved getting to know Iko better and I loved the new characters, everything was flawlessly executed and for everyone who loves Lunar Chronicles but hasn’t read these graphic novels.

I don’t know what the hell you’re doing! It definitely brings you closure and new perspective of the story you wouldn’

Who doesn't LOVE Iko?

First Sentence: Almost a year has passed since we overthrew the wicked tyrant, Queen Levana, and crowned my best friend, Cinder - aka Princess Selene Blackburn - as the true Queen of Luna

A good end to the graphic novels.
I expected a bit more action and a bit less inner struggles.
Overall not bad, just I expected more.

This pains me to say, but though the writing was a 5, the art was a 2 at most, so all together I gave this volume a 3. I also think that some of the suspense with this volume doesn't work if you read Stars Above since you get to see the group with their HEA. So maybe it would have been better to just have the group dealing with things after [redacted ].

"Gone Rogue" is the second and last volume in "Wires and Nerves." This time Meyer does not just focus on Iko. She instead includes everyone in a

This was a lot of fun. Of course I could have done with eleventy billion more pages of Scarlet and Wolf, but whatever. As always, Iko kicked ass and took names.

I loved seeing all of my favorite characters back together! I’m such a sucker for found family. Although, I didn’t love the illustrations in this one as much as the first one. Judgment is still out on Kinney, though. I want to like him, but I’m not sure whether I do or not yet.
I admit: I never had a real appreciation for Iko until reading the Wires and Nerve books. In the main Lunar Chronicles books, she is just Cinder's friend, but I love in these books that she is given some time in the spotlight. We literally get to see Iko and the other characters in their relationships, as well as friendships. These graphic novels are more than another story in the Chronicles; they are a testament to this crew. Talk about "Squad Goals"!

Moral of my story: if you haven't read these

I LOVED these graphic novels based around Iko. She's definitely my favourite character and I'm so sad this is the last one! I wish we could see Iko and Kinney's relationship develop more, they were just adorable <3 I prefer these way more than the actual series, so I highly recommend reading these if you have read the original 4 books. ...more

This was so much fun.

It has been a few years since I read The Lunar Chronicles and the first Wires and Nerve, and this was a great reminder of how much I love this series.

There is just something special about Meyer's stories and the characters she creates. She has this knack for tapping into my inner child, the one who grew up loving Star Wars and who, very seriously, wanted to BE Princess Leia.

Sigh. I am so sad that I've now read the last in this series.

More, please!

We've been through so much with this cast of characters and I'm so sad to see the ending to this series! Iko was definitely the best with her fiery spark, her sense of justice and her charisma and bubbly personality. In the graphic novel format, she definitely outshines the rest of the cast and I love how she gets her chance to shine in both of these!

I have a lot of feelings and they are all very good ones! GONE ROGUE was such a delightful follow-up to last year’s Wires and Nerve. I loved seeing how the story wrapped up, loved being reunited with my Rampion crew and just loved being back in this world again.
