Gone Rogue (Wires & Nerve: Vol. 2) by Marissa Meyer

34930815I 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”!

In Gone Rogue, we see the crew in a post-Levana world. Cinder is on her way to introducing democracy and trying her best to get the people of her kingdom back on track. However, there is big trouble brewing with the wolf soldiers on Earth. They want their humanity back, believing that the crown is hiding the cure. They will do whatever it takes to get it. Meanwhile, Iko struggles personally in a big way, questioning her own creation. With the help of her friends, can Iko accept herself and defeat the monsters? Read the book to find out!

Wires and Nerve: Vol. 2 has an immense amount of character growth in several of the characters, but most of all, Iko. Moral of my story: if you haven’t read these, READ THEM! I gave Vol. 2 only 3 stars, but Vol. 1 4 stars because I found more humor and pure enjoyment in #1. Volume 2 had its humor spots, its sweet spots, and its suspense…but I just prefer the first one.
