For the millions of people who log into Warcross everyday, it’s not just a game,it’s a way of life. Created ten years prior, Warcross is now a global phenomenon in which people use it to escape their reality or make a profit. For bounty hunter, Emika Chen, Warcross is a way to make ends meet. But the bounty hunting world is very competitive, and on a whim, Emika decides to try a hack to gain a little extra cash. Something during the hack goes wrong and it glitches Emika into the opening match of the Warcross Championships-making her an international sensation overnight. Dreading that she’ll get arrested, Emika is surprised when she gets contacted by none other than Hideo Tanaka, the creator of Warcross, who has an irresistible offer. He wants her to act as his spy to sniff out a security issue in this year’s championships. Emika is quickly whisked off th Tokyo, but as she delves deeper into finding the security breach, she uncovers a sinister plot that could ruin all of Warcross.
When I first heard that Marie Lu had another book coming out, I knew I just had to read it! I’m so happy that I was even able to get my hands on an early copy of this book as well. Not only was this one of my most favorite reads of 2017, but it was also my first time reading a book by Marie. I know, I know. Shame on me for not having read anything by her beforehand, and now I just want to binge read everything by her! As of late I’ve been a little dystopianed out and I wasn’t sure how I would like this book as it has some dystopian themes, but once I started I just couldn’t put it down! There was a crazy twist near the end that makes me so desperate for book two. I could not wait for this book to come out so I could talk to others about how amazing it was.
