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.--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2018 Booklist

In this second engaging graphic novel (spun-off from the long-running sci-fi series), android Iko risks everything to protect her friend, Lunar Queen Cinder, from Lysander Steele's bioengineered wolf-soldiers. Meyer also compellingly weaves in discussion of nature versus nurture as Iko struggles with revelations concerning her humanity. Dialogue and action blend seamlessly across Gilpin's monochrome-blue panels, allowing fans to savor this reunion with all their favorite characters. (c) Copyright 2019.
