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.

This week I am anxiously waiting on Warcross by Marie Lu

Expected publication: September 12th 2017 by G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers


29385546For 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 Am Waiting

Marie Lu is one of my favorite Authors ever since I devoured her Legend trilogy. I love her style of writing and her characters. I can’t wait to see what she does with a gaming world! A bounty hunting hacker, a spy, famous, Emika already sounds like my kind of MC! The description of Warcross reminds me a bit of Ready Player One, one of my favorite sci-fi books! I’ve had it on preorder for awhile and I can’t wait for September to get here and to have it in my hands!!
