Wires and Nerve (Wires and Nerve #1) by Marissa Meyer (Review)
Based on the popular series The Lunar Chronicles, Wires and Nerve is a graphic novel continuing off from where the book series ended. Iko is an android. She is a machine with the mind of a woman. In an effort to help Cinder, she goes on the hunt to track down and stop the wolf-monster-lunar hybrids that the evil queen had unleashed on earth. In the process she gets a little dinged up, but a few wolf aliens are not anything she cannot take with the aid of her friends.
Minimalistic in its color choices, Wires and Nerve's art style is unique as it has a very friendly feel, and is not overly detailed. It was a little uninteresting to look at visually because of the lack of color diversity (it was mostly exclusively blue). That aside though, the story was simple but friendly. I would feel comfortable to let younger readers look into this book. It's a fun read and an interesting way to look at the Lunar Chronicles, giving a minor side character time to become more developed and rounded. Ultimately, Wires and Nerve was a good graphic novel, and I give it the rating of FOUR OUT OF FIVE STARS!!!
