“It is a beautiful irony that the greatest queen we've ever had is the first to take off her crown.”
My review of this book can be found on my YouTube Vlog at:
I was excited to get a chance to settle back into a world I love with familiar characters.
This story focuses on the android Iko. She's sent on a special mission by Cinder to help with rogue wolf packs.
Like the other books this one has lots of action and adventure. I personally wasn't the biggest fan of the artwork, but I loved the story.
Fun graphic novel read that follows post Winter. There are some of Levana‘s special soldiers still hiding out on Earth so Iko takes it upon herself to make Cinder‘s life easier and bring them back.
You get a chance to see all the characters and just have time with Iko. What isn‘t to love?
Well, I wanted to like it. I do love...
-that she finally has her own story line
-her badass mission of taking on wolf-operatives
What I didn't like?
-This took place after Lunar Chronicles' events. Wasted too much time on referencing past events.
-Short, disappointing backstory for her
-Art style struck me as unfinished and odd proportions. Characters faces, especially.
Iko deserved better. #dw2020reads
GIMMIE VOLUME TWWWOOOOOO!!
I didn't realize this took place before the epilogue in Stars Above, danggit!
I was leary of the art at first, but as with all great comics the visual composition and writing shine through. And this one has Meyer's phenomenal writing to boot 🤩
This is the first graphic novel I‘ve ever read so I didn‘t know what to expect, but I actually really enjoyed it! It was pretty cheesy at times, which I could see being annoying to some people. But The Lunar Chronicles are one of my favorite series, so I was just excited to be able to read about my favorite characters again. It was a super fast and easy read. I will definitely read the second one!
I was reading the tagged book on my balcony last night when I noticed my cat was watching something and I looked down and saw this little visitor🦝 We live right by a wooded area and he was just passing through, not harming anyone. Needless to say, I got very distracted watching my new little friend and didn‘t get as much reading done as I wanted. But it was worth taking a break and enjoying nature 🌿
This is my first time reading a graphic novel so my cats are making sure it‘s okay for me to read! 😹 My sister @SarahHarts_books and I are doing a book bingo together and one of the spots calls for a graphic novel so I thought this would be a purrfect time to read this one! The Lunar Chronicles are one of my favorite series so I‘m excited to step out of my element and give this graphic novel a shot!
Sometimes you just want to reread a book and so I did last night as Calli snuggles with me. The first time I read this I was a bit put off by the character designs - but the story is really good and true to the characters even if I didn‘t consider them to look the way portrayed in a graphic novel format. #dogsoflitsy
OK so I've been reading the Marissa Meyer books and love them. Have come across these graphic novels. I don't normally do graphic novels but am debating these. Anyone else read them? Any reviews?
At this point you can probably give me anything with these characters and I'm gonna love it.
I really like this graphic novel and how the illustrations are simplified so you can focus on the story. And the story is really good, unlike most books/graphic novel companions that I've stumbled up on before. It follows Iko's adventures shortly after the end of Winter as she tries to find remaining Levana's soldiers on Earth and send them back.
Omg, I SQUEALED when I learned that this graphic novel existed! I was so excited to get my hands on another Lunar Chronicles story, and doubly excited that it would feature Iko. I don‘t usually read graphic novels (I find them intimidating, they‘re like a whole different culture omg) but I absolutely LOVED this one. It felt a bit short (I finished it in, like, 2 hours I think) so I am super glad there is another book.
It was nice to revisit the characters from one of my favorite series again. This story takes place after the original series and it told from the point of view of Iko, an Android with very human traits. It has everything I loved about the original series, plus I enjoyed Iko‘s introspective narrative.
Anyone else participating in the Reverse Readathon starting tonight? I‘m excited. My TBR stack is calling me but so is my bed so we‘ll see how much I read tonight. I‘ll be getting up early to start again though.
First lines challenge for #24in48! I'll probably read this late tonight when my brain has given up in regular novels but I want to squeeze another hour in. I love the "once upon a time" allusion to classic fairy tales while leading us straight into all the Lunar Chronicles characters we know and love. @24in48
I just finished both books in this series and already miss that world. The story itself is a bit tidy but that‘s not the point of this. I loved hearing Iko‘s voice and enjoying these characters and their group dynamic again. Such a fun way to spin off a character from the original Lunar Chronicles world and to enjoy this world for a while longer.
So..... after I finished "language of thorns" yesterday I MAY have started and finished "wires and nerve" as well lol. It was a fun and quick read! If you haven't read any of the lunar chronicles series I would wait to read this. But otherwise it was really cool to read and nice to see the characters drawn out. I gave it 4/5 stars
Graphic novel based after the final novel of the Lunar Chronicles. Decent read and it's nice to continue with the series. #35of2018
Wires & Nerve provides so much more depth to the Lunar Chronicles series & a wider look at the characters that populate it. I love that the story centres on Iko & how she sees the world & her journey through it. The story is engaging and it moves along quite quickly for a graphic novel that is 200+ pages. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have already started on the sequel, Wires and Nerve: Gone Rogue.
Today's Library haul.
I loved this. I love the entire series. I absolutely devoured every one of the novels, so not surprising that the graphic novel didn't stand a chance. 💖📚
I know this isn't the end but it feels like it because there's no more books (atm) 😭
I love this series and now Iko has her own!? YES Meyer ❤️️
Finished this in just a day, loved it !
