Gone Rogue by Marissa Meyer - ESSENTIAL

Meyer, Marissa Gone Rogue (Wires and Nerve #2), 324 pages.  Feiwel and Friends (Macmillan), 2018.  $22.  Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: PG

Despite their disagreements, Iko and Kinney are still trying to rack down Aloha Steele, who has gathered together the remaining wolf-soldiers in a final push to take down Cinder in any manner possible.  Even by attacking Scarlett and taking Wolf on as a member of the band.  Or making hostages of Cress and Thorne and others.  The final confrontation could be apocalyptic.

Cinder fans will continue to clamor for more Iko story – especially because of the challenges Iko personally faces in this book.  I love the relationship between Kinney and Iko!  The wolf soldier rank and file still look like gerbils, and the graphic parts don’t really do anything of themselves – they just support or illustrate the text.  I think a great graphic novel has parts of the story that are only told by close reading of the illustrations.
