Publisher's Summary

From number one New York Times best-selling 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 10 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 Warcross players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty-hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. To make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks in to 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, number one New York Times best-selling author Marie Lu conjures an immersive, exhilarating world where choosing who to trust may be the biggest gamble of all.

Wow

This was a wilde ride. I was invested from the start, but still things kept building up and getting crazier. The narrator was truly great, each character sounded different from one another, and she gave the proper emotions and sense of urgency (as in action sequences) when they were needed. This audiobook was definitely worth it

Amazing

I loved everything about this--we downloaded it because Nancy Wu is our new favorite audiobook narrator, but the story blew me away as well. Highly recommend.

Lovely narrator, good story

Narrator was excellent. Story was great, though it had a few moments where it stretched the suspension of disbelief a bit.

Also, Hideo is a goddamn tease. Ughhh.

Just as good as reading it!

I've already read Warcross, but thought I would give the audiobook a try since I recently joined Audible. Listening to it was just as good as reading it. We did speed it up a little bit and that helped with the pacing. My husband and I listened to it in the car and we both enjoyed it. Warcross is one of those books you don't want to put down. The narrator did a great job with different characters which was something I worried about. She was a great Emika Chen. Audible 20 Review Sweepstakes Entry

Awesome action packed virtual world!

This is the second series I have begun by Marie Lu. Well, I hope this will become a series, because I’m definitely gonna need more! Lu’s books always entertain me. I am so glad I grabbed this audiobook to listen to at work!! I would have finished much quicker if I hadn’t had to pause so often for incoming calls & such. I️ found myself grabbing my headphones to listen even while cooking dinner which is a rare treat with kiddos running around the house.
We are thrown into this amazing virtual reality filled world where people are intense about their gaming & almost pausing life for the upcoming Warcross tournaments. The characters are diverse, interesting, & witty. The action & emotion flowed well, but toward the end really picked up its pace. I can’t wait to read more!

A 5-Star Thrilling Ride

Warcross is another thrilling adventure from Marie Lu. I’ve seen this all over Social Media and it deserves all the attention it is getting. I loved this and I need more!!

Millions of people log in to Warcross every day. It’s not just a game but it has become a link to a virtual world where people can escape from reality and also make a profit. Illegal gambling of the Warcross game is on the rise and teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game. The police force is understaffed so they hire bounty hunters for these less violent crimes. Emika jumps at the opportunity to earn money since she’s behind on her rent and her bills. But when she is desperate for money Emika takes a risky chance at hacking into a Warcross game to steal an item to pawn off, but the hack doesn’t go as planned and the world catches her in the middle of the act. Instead of getting arrested Emika is whisked off to Tokyo, Japan to meet with the creator billionaire Hideo Tanaka and is given a job she can’t refuse – work with Hideo to uncover a security problem. Emika is thrust into not only the Warcross games but also into fame and fortune. As she uncovers clues of a sinister plot Emika must learn the truth before it’s too late. Warcross isn’t just a game, now lives are at stake.

I loved everything about Warcross. Emika is a great character. She is smart and tough, even though she had a rough life she wants to do what’s right. I also loved the supporting characters. They worked great as a team but they were also still mysterious, so I loved not knowing who to trust. Warcross is a game but you don’t have to be a video gamer to understand or enjoy this book. Marie Lu creates a world that is simple to understand but also visually breathtaking. I clearly imagined the world as seen in futuristic films like Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell. The plot had some twists that kept me guessing and the pace was perfect. There was never a dull moment in this book.

I can’t wait for the next book!

3 Stars Audiobook Review

This is my 3rd audiobook with narrator Nancy Wu and I thought her performance was OK. At times her narration was flat and lacked excitement. When it is scenes of dialogue between the characters I thought her performance was good and she developed distinct voices for each of the characters. The narrator did come to life for the exciting ending so for her performance I give 3 stars.
