Author: Maire Lu

Blurb (GR): 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.

Why I’m Waiting 

It’s Marie Lu, and after reading her previous books…. I will read anything she writes! I’m really sad about the cover, because I had high expectations for it.

  1. AGH. AGH. AGH. AGH. I. NEED. WARCROSS. *wails*

    Marie Lu is like the YA GODDESS. I read TYE first and was like AGH DARKNESS I LOVE IT. Then I read the whole Legend trilogy WHICH. I. LOVED. ❤ ❤ (But the ending to Champion was so heartbreaking, and yet I didn't cry??? I am a heartless little bean.) And then I read TRS, which made me not really like TYE series because I thought Adelina got way too dark (and I'm a dark person???). BUT THEN I READ THE MIDNIGHT STAR AND IT WAS SO GOOD IT MADE THE WHOLE TYE TRILOGY A FAVORITE SERIES. AAAGGHHHH. THAT book I cried over, though, thankfully. XD AND NOW I'M PREPARING MYSELF FOR ANOTHER AMAZING AND HEARTBREAKING BOOK FROM HER. ASRAJSLKFJALSDKFJALK *fangirls* (Do you know if it'll be a series or just a standalone?)
