Wires and Nerve 2 : Gone Rogue
by Meyer, Marissa; Gilpin, Stephen (ILT)

Tasked with hunting down the leader of a rogue band of bioengineered wolf-soldiers, audacious android Iko, best friend to the Lunar Queen, Cinder, confronts difficult truths about her unusual programming while endeavoring to save hostages who have been abducted as part of their enemy's plot to sabotage peace talks between Earth and Luna.

Marissa Meyer is the New York Times-and USA Today-bestselling author of the Lunar Chronicles, and the stand-alone novel Heartless, also a #1 New York Times bestseller. Wires and Nerve is her first graphic novel. She lives in Tacoma with her husband and their children.

Stephen Gilpin lives and works in a cave just north of Hiawatha, Kansas, with his wife, their kids, and an infestation of dogs.

Android Iko is still hunting down rogue wolf-soldier Steele, but her quest takes on a new urgency after he convinces Iko's friend Wolf to join his renegade cause. Now Iko and the frustrating (but handsome!) guard Liam Kinney must scramble to prevent a massacre during Cinder's visit to Earth for the annual Peace Festival. Picking up directly after volume one and leading smoothly into the last story from Meyer's collection Stars Above (2016), Iko's second graphic-novel outing might not be a groundbreaking work, but it will more than satisfy the series' many fans. All of the usual crew are present, and there is action, romance, and plenty of snappy banter. Gilpin's art brings the characters to life and close to their book descriptions, though several of the guys are hard to distinguish from one another. Readers who haven't read the series previously will be lost, but current fans will be delighted to revisit Meyer's futuristic Earth and her young saviors. A must-have addition to teen collections.
