CJR The Brit Review: Warcross by Marie Lu


I read this book, I am sure you have all heard of it!!!  It was fabulous.  Utterly fabulous!  And it pulled me out of my reading slump (I will be forever grateful to Marie Lu!!!)

Here is a bit about it:

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.

Thank the Lord, a book that pulled me out of my slump!

I’ve heard so much about this book that I couldn’t leave it on my tbr a moment longer. And I’m so glad I didn’t!

Oh my word…..the world, Warcross, Emika, Hideo, the story, the writing! All of it 5 stars!

Now I have no knowledge of the gaming world but this book describes the game with such clarity that it was heaven.

All of it so well crafted I was nearly cheering for joy!

And that ending! Book 2 please!
