Let’s Review: Wires and Nerve

IMG_1293Hi! My name is Ashley, and I’m new to TAG so I thought that I’d take a few minutes to introduce myself. One thing that you need to know about me is that I love to read. I always have my nose in a book! Besides reading, I also like mythical creatures, dogs and cats, and a podcast called Welcome to Night Vale.

Anyway, everybody knows The Lunar Chronicles by Marisa Meyer, right? Well, she wrote a graphic novel called Wires and Nerve following Cinder’s (Selene’s) “sidekick,” Iko. Since most of the hybrid-wolf packs got away, Iko takes it upon herself to track them down and capture them. This is especially important that Iko does this because of the fact that she is an android, so she can’t get hurt.

However, if you didn’t like Iko as a character, you’re probably not going to like this book. After all, this book is a whole lot of Iko. She is a very feminine character. She likes clothes, shoes and net dramas, (though most of this is only mentioned and not shown). She also spends a LOT of her time daydreaming about boys.

Yet, Iko is left questioning her own humanity, misreading romantic tension with a royal guard calling her beautiful (or so she thinks), and having the pressure of finding all the hybrid wolves.

While I’m on the subject of Marissa Meyer, be sure to read her new book Renegades! Happy reading!
