Book Review: Wires and Nerve Vol. 2 by M. Meyer et al.

Wires and Nerve Volume 2: Gone Rogue written by Marissa Meyer and art by Stephen Gilpin

See my review of Volume 1 here.

On the eve of a festival to celebrate the peace agreement between Earth and the Moon, a group of rogue soldiers threaten to create chaos. The evil Lunar queen had bioengineered wolf-men as soldiers, giving them an appetite for destruction and human flesh. New Lunar Queen Cinder has given her android friend Iko the task of hunting down the rogue soldiers. Now that the war is over, they want to be reverse-engineered back into regular men. Lunar science has no ability to do that, but Alpha Steele, leader of the wolf-rogues, refuses to believe Queen Cinder. He wants a cure or he wants revenge.

The story centers on Iko, who deals with her own artificial nature as well as kicks wolf-butt. The large cast of characters from Meyer's Lunar Chronicles are all present and help to fill out the story. The people are fun and the plot is interesting enough to support the action and the jokes. There's a little too much interest in dresses and the festival ball for my taste. The book wasn't really written for me, it's more of a YA science fiction romance. Even so I enjoyed the story.
