Waiting on Wednesday: Warcross

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Warcross
Author: Marie Lu
Series: Warcross #1
Release Date: 12

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.

I am really excited for this title, I have never read any of the author's work before so I cannot wait!

  1. I read one other of Lu's books and thought it was okay about teen dragons and the dragon hunter after them. She is very prolific though so her writing has probably improved and her ideas are awesome! So I'm excited to read this one too... it's just not one of my top 10!

    This is a cute meme isn't it!? No wonder you didn't do the top 10 Tuesday if you do one of these cute posts every Wednesday!

    What do you like about the premise?!

    1. OH WOW...I have not read any of her books so I am excited to see what her writing is like. Yeah it is not mine either, I am just loving the cover the more I look at it.

      Yes it is, lol if I did that I would probably have nothing to post which is why I do this instead!

      Do you mean the book or the meme?

  2. YEAAAAAASSS!! I am also SO excited about this book, and I've heard amazing things about Lu's writing. Hope we both love it when we read it! <3
