During the opening game of the International Warcross Championships, she accidentally becomes part of the action and becomes an overnight sensation. Convinced she will be arrested, she is shocked when she receives a call from Hideo Tanaka, the game's creator. He needs someone to spy on the tournament from the inside to help with a security problem. She travels to Tokyo and soon uncovers a plot that could have terrible consequences for the Warcross Empire.

    Every one of Marie Lu's novels is a cinematic experience, but Warcross, in particular, was just so lovely and intricate. I loved the gamer girl vibe—Emika was such a fun narrator!—and every one of the settings in the book, be it a run-down New York apartment or a sparkling, fantastical level in the Warcross game, was described with such detail. I was literally dying on the pages at some of the plot twists at the end. The journey of reading this is so fun, and even when things hit rock bottom, I'm optimistic because Emika is so determined to do good. I'm so excited to read the next book, Wildcard. Thank you, Marie Lu, for yet another literary masterpiece.
