     In her first graphic novel, #1 New York Times and USA Today bestseller Marissa Meyer follows Iko, the beloved android from the Lunar Chronicles, on a dangerous and romantic new adventure -- with a little help from Cinder and the Lunar team.
     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..


     As soon as I heard that Iko was getting a book, I added it to my TBR. There was never a question to whether or not I would read it. And then I heard the news that it was going to be a graphic novel and I couldn't WAIT to get my hands on it! Marissa Meyer is one of those authors whom it doesn't matter what she writes, if it has this gang of chaaracters or even just her name on it, I'm going to read it.
"...but I do hope to one day turn Luna into the Republic it was meant to be. A country with elected officials and fair laws, where everyone is treatee as equals. Regardless of what sectors they are born in."
pg. 59
     Things aren't going as great as they should be since the treaty between Earth and Luna. The wolf soldiers are wreaking havoc around the world. Iko decides that she is the best person for the job. Soon she is joined by a royal guard to help her round up the soldiers.
"You must know your enemies well of you hope to defeat them."
pg. 91
     It was definitely good to see the entire cast of characters again. Although it's not another "entire" book, it still worked for me. None of them had changed and I think that was my favorite part. Everyone is still their old selves which made it so much easier to slide into the story and love it even more.
"...the woman was just ignorant and prejudced, and not worth thinking about."
pg. 104
     The only thing I loved more than the cast being back together, would have to be the swoony scenes! Those were definitely cute and they helped the plot along. Graphic novels are always really short which makes it difficult to have a full plot, but the old characters and having something that I recognize (my favorite ships) it was easy to watch the story forming. I was a bit nervous to read it (I read ALOT of comics where the first story or graphic novel is all about the origin of the character and their abilities (even if I know all about the character already) and sometimes it tends to make the story a little tedious. But there was none of that in this story and for that I am greatful.
"What is best for the few is not always best for the many."
pg. 125
     Last but certainly not least, I LOVED the illustrations. The illustrations were a great asset to the story and the visuals really helped the story along. Douglas Holgate was a great addition to this story and I can't wait to see what else him and Meyer do together. It can only get better from here right?
Overall, I give this
