    follows Iko, the beloved android from

    , on a dangerous and romantic new adventure – with a little help from Cinder and the Rampion crew (which had me over the moon excited).

    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.

    Iko was one of my favorite members of the group, so I loved that her wit and humor was translated so well into this graphic novel format. She's as brave and loyal as ever fighting for her true friend and queen. And my love for this crew is exhilarating.

    Speaking of love, here are some of favorite moments:

    Love her side commentary more than ever!!

    Iko's not kidding around!! To quote the blurb, she's a badass with a heart of (mechanized) gold.

    I was glad to see that good 'ol humor of hers along with her love for Kai hadn't changed.

    I loved Thorne with every bit of my heart in

    . But I found that his trademark snark and direct remarks seemed kind of forced in here.

    But thankfully his love for Cress is still alive and well!!

    And so is her love for the net dramas!

    As well as Iko's:

    Though said love didn't always bring them into the best situations.

    My queen, Selene Blackburn of Luna, educating the world!

    Side note: the art style took a bit to get used to because it wasn't even close to how I'd imagined the characters, especially the way Wolf was depicted. But over time it became less noticeable once I got into the swing of the story.

    AH!! Wolf's still the sweetest!!

    Speaking of...

    I loved this moment so much!!!

    All in all: I would say that even though it took me a bit to get through this volume, my love for the Rampion crew slowly but surely resurfaced. Iko & Cinder & Winter & Cress & Thorne & Kai & Wolf & Jacin all have a special place in my heart. And I simply cannot wait for volume two to come out!!

    This was so much fun. I loved the storyline and the illustrations are perfection.

    Iko is exactly the sort of narrator you would expect. I am so happy to get back to these characters {especially Wolf and his tomatoes} and I can't wait to see the next part.

    It's just a shame that graphic novels are over so quickly and now we must wait a whole year for the sequel.

    . It is basically the fifth book in the Lunar Chronicles and does contain spoilers for all previous books - so if you haven't finished the others don't make the mistake of thinking this is a completely separate story.

    .

The protagonist here is Iko, the charming and - as you will soon see - badass android that's been with Cinder from the very beginning.

    And it was really enjoyable. The characters we know and love all make an appearance, and

    . Iko is now a hunter, searching for rogue wolf-hybrids all over the world. She also has to deal with being the "forgotten hero", her name kept out of the history books because she is an android, and therefore not considered a real person. Her behaviour and feelings are constantly being questioned - her fiery temper considered a "malfunction" and her emotions considered "artificial".

    This series is a whole lot of light silliness, easy to digest science-fiction, and romance, but underneath there's a constant subtle nod to the outsiders; those who have had to fight to be heard or taken seriously because of who they are. I like that.

    Plus, getting a visual of this diverse cast of characters was wonderful: the Chinese Cinder and Kai, the black Iko and Winter, and the white Scarlet, Cress and Thorne. Perhaps the only thing missing from this series is some good LGBT representation. I was secretly hoping that for Iko, but I guess I'll deal with Kinney for now. The love/hate between the two of them is perfect!

    Loved this! Iko was one of my favorite characters from this series so I'm thrilled she's getting her own story. I also loved seeing the whole gang again! If you're wondering exactly where this fits in the story line, it happens after Winter (will completely spoil the ending!) but before the extra epilogue that was included in Stars Above.

    What a cute little graphic novel! I love The Lunar Chronicles! ❤

    In this first book we touch base with all of the main characters from the books, some more so than others. I'm sure they will all have major parts in the other books in the series.

    In this one Iko is running around taking down some of the wolf pack hybrids that Levana had made during her reign. They were all supposed to come in and get rehabilitated But that didn't really happen.

    Also, Kai is off doing stuff and Cinder has some plan

    Also, Kai is off doing stuff and Cinder has some plans of her own that the council doesn't like. Scarlet and Wolf are on their farm which is sweet.

    Carswell and Cress are running around with Iko after one point. It will all come together when you read the novel. I sooooooooooooooo look forward to however many Marissa Meyers is going to do in this series.

    I will leave you with a few pics. =)

    Enjoy =)

    That was... kind of odd. I tried to go into it with low expectations and not compare it with The Lunar Chronicles books since it's a different format! But most of the characters didn't seem like themselves (especially Thorne) and the tone was drastically different.

    I did love how well Iko's personality came through in her narration! And it was fun to see familiar characters together again (except I

    wasn't huge on Thorne here. He turned into a wimpy tween boy and went from being my favorite character to my least favorite). There's not much with Scarlet, Kai, or Wolf, but they do come in at the end. Most of the plot focuses on Cinder getting ready to abdicate her throne to form a republic while Iko hunts down rogue Lunar special operatives and meets up with Cress & Thorne. I ADORE Iko and wanted to see more of her with Kinney, so that was a fun part! And I really did love the parts with Cinder.

    I've told a lot of adults and grandparents to read The Lunar Chronicles because they're fun for all ages, but this book definitely felt like I was too old for the target audience at times. A lot of scenes were either cringeworthy or just... not the same characters?? And I really wasn't that big on the illustrations, either.

    So I think this will be really fun for the right audience, but it's not something I'd recommend for everyone who loved The Lunar Chronicles. The story and characters aren't a very strong continuation of the book series -- this graphic novel is kind of doing its own thing now. And that's not bad! I'm just pretty neutral on it overall.
