In her first graphic novel, bestselling author Marissa Meyer extends the world of the Lunar Chronicles with a brand-new, action-packed story about Iko, the android with a heart of (mechanized) gold. When rogue packs of wolf-hybrid soldiers threaten the tenuous peace alliance between Earth and Luna, Iko takes it upon herself to hunt down the soldiers' leader. She is soon working with a handsome royal guard who forces her to question everything she knows about love, loyalty, and her own humanity. With appearances by Cinder and the rest of the Rampion crew, this is a must-have for fans of the bestselling series.

I have been waiting for Wires and Nerve since I found out about this last year! I was dragging my feet, though and only read it this month! Why did I ever drag my feet?! I guess I was scared? Maybe? If you have been dragging your feet like me, stop and pick up Wires and Nerve because it is amazing!

Wires and Nerve is Iko’s story! Finally, she is the heroine! If you haven’t read The Lunar Chronicles series and Stars Above, please do so now! There are easter eggs for the last novella in Stars Above here. Also, Wires and Nerve happens after Winter and before Something Old, Something New, the last novella in Stars Above.

This book is really filled with all the feels and nostalgia! I love revisiting the world and of course, my favorite characters! I mean, I absolutely love Thorne and he is in a good chunk of this book! YES!

We also get to meet new characters! There is a new villain, who is one of the hybrid wolf Lunars and I am intrigued,

Overall this was such a fun and quick read!

Enter the world of Marissa Meyer s Lunar Chronicles, the #1 New York Times-bestselling series.

People, places, and scenes from Marissa Meyer s bestselling and beloved intergalactic adventure come to life in this enchanting coloring book.

Castles, costumes, and characters inspired by fairy tales are detailed with intricate and decorative drawings perfect for coloring. Along with new text from the author, including never-before-published commentary about the series, this is a volume that Lunartics (old fans and new) will want to own.

I finally caved and bought the coloring book! This book is filled with awesome art from The Lunar Chronicles series including each character! I colored most of the girls first, too!

What I love about this coloring book is that you only color one side. The other side are excerpts from the book and new content! Which also helps because I use markers to color and they bleed through the pages.

Here are the five gals! My absolute favorite is Cress and she was also the first one that I colored.

I’m not done with Iko and Winter yet, but I couldn’t resist sharing the images.

Overall, The Lunar Chronicles Coloring Book is amazing. I probably won’t color the scenes because I suck at that but the characters are amazing! Can’t wait to color Thorne, Kai, Wolf and Levana!

Have you read The Lunar Chronicles series yet? Who is your favorite character form the series?

  1. I have both of these (the coloring book and graphic novel) but I haven’t opened either. *cries* I’m not really into the Lunar Chronicles? I liked Cinder years ago but never finished the series. I do love the coloring book though – I have big plans for it after I graduate in May. 😀 Perhaps I’ll binge-read the Lunar Chronicles in the future… I do want to see what all the fuss is about, especially with a certain captain? *clueless Alyssa is clueless*

    Wonderful post, Zeee!
