From #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu—when a game called Warcross takes the world by storm, one girl hacks her way into its dangerous depths.

For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.

Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

In this sci-fi thriller, #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu conjures an immersive, exhilarating world where choosing who to trust may be the biggest gamble of all.

Hello lovely people, I hope you are all having an amazing and wonderful day <3

Today I´m going to be sharing my review of WARCROSS by Marie Lu, one of the best books I have read this year.
If you like video games, romance ( THE SWOONS), action and an amazing MC that happens to be an amazing bounty hunter and hacker…
Then this book is perfect for you.

Marie Lu is one of my all time favorite writers EVER.
I loved Legend with all my heart. Her writing style is amazing and the worlds that she creates are fantastical and full of action & epic twists.

When I found out she was going to write another book I was super excited, I jumped out of emotion because well, ANOTHER BOOK BY MARIE LU?!?! Count me in!

 This book was so good that I´m not sure what to say 😆🤣
But ok, first things first, the cover is for sure one of my all time favorite covers 😍  It´s super colorful and I really think it fits the book.
And now lets talk about this story, it was SO GOOD that I wanted to read it again as soon as I finished. The ending was W O W and I am super excited for the next book. I have so many theories and I just need to know what happens next!

Ever since her father´s death she has bee trying to survive by catching criminals and getting monetary rewards from the people that are looking for them. But every day has been harder and she has debts she has to pay and if she doesn’t pay on time, the owner of the place will definitely kick her out if he doesn’t get any money. And since her roommate isn’t working… well it´s pretty difficult for her.

Then an idea comes to her mind and she hacks WARCROSS. The most popular video game ever played by thousands and thousand of people. But something went wrong… because when Emika hacked WARCROSS everyone saw her on the arena… And everything changed since then.

That was a “OMG NO WAY” Kind of moment, I literally said those words out loud oops 🤣 Emika got a phone call after that little incident and she refused to answer the phone and after many calls she answer and guess who she was talking too? Hideo Tanaka, the creator and owner of WARCROSS, also, THE SWOONS😍

Guys seriously, this book was so good and amazing and fantastical and I just LOVE IT

WARCROSS was written in a way that will definitely make you want to keep reading more.
It was intriguing, full of action and twists that will leave you breathless.
Emika, is definitely one of my favorite characters ever. She is a bounty hunter and of the best hackers EVER, plus she has an amazing hair! And Hideo is on my “Book boyfriend list”❤️ He´s super intelligent and I loved hoe much he cares for his family and Emika 😉

The story was very addictive, perfect and it will certainly take reader to this fantastical new world where technology has take the world to a different level and where treason, secret identities and love will make you want to keep reading till the very end.

Are you guys planning to read this book? What is your favorite video game? Let me know in the comments below, I would love to read your comments!
