My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Wires and Nerve is a continuation of the Lunar Chronicles in graphic novel form – if that doesn’t immediately intrigue you, I don’t know what will. The events in this book take place after Winter, so if you haven’t read the four books in the Lunar Chronicles they will be spoiled for you by this storyline (and bits of my review, even though there are no spoilers for Wires and Nerve included.)
I fell in love immediately. Iko, our favourite android, is the main character of this graphic novel series and she deserves it. I always loved her personality in the Lunar Chronicles and was so happy when she was able to have a body of her own. It was so wonderful to see her kick butt and be her usual lovable, sassy self. She was super pretty in the graphic novel as well and I had major hair envy. She also might have a love interest and that is amazing because Iko deserves every proper, human experience. We also got to catch up with our heroes from the series and see how their lives have been since the end of Winter.
Most importantly, we got to spend time with Cresswell. The two of them together are so precious and although they’re not my OTP, they’re at the top. They’re probably the duo from the series that we get to see the most and that made me happy. They were so adorable together and seeing their interactions (and the hearts, ugh, my heart) in graphic novel form was almost too cute to handle.
Unlike Cresswell, we didn’t really get any adorable moments between Winter and Jacin, or Kai and Cinder, but despite Scarlet and Wolf only being in the novel for about two pages – they had the cutest scene. My heart melted and I was so sad that the book ended so soon after because now I will have to wait until the next book comes out to find out what happens. I can’t. I need to know guys.
I highly recommend the Lunar Chronicles as a whole because it is a fantastic and original series. It is not only a fairytale retelling, but it is science fiction which makes it quite unique. Obviously, reading the series before jumping into the graphic novel is a must but I promise that you won’t regret it.
