Warcross by Marie Lu




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.



Release Day September 12, 2017


I can’t wait for this book because of the following reasons:

  • It’s a new Marie Lu book (love her!)
  • The story is about gaming (we are a house full of gamers)
  • The cover!


For this Book Look I found the perfect dress that has a hologram look to it.  This isn’t something I would feel comfortable wearing but if I was 10 years younger I would wear this for a fun night out on the town. I kept the accessories simple so the dress would take center stage. I love the phone case – it ties in with the book and has a fun message.


What book are you waiting for?

    Your Warcross outfit is perfect! I love the way the iridescent stuff matches the cover. I am eager to read this book as well. I am a solid Marie Lu fan, and can’t wait to see what’s she has created for us.

      I was excited to find the perfect dress. I’m also excited for this new book from Marie Lu. I liked the Young Elites and this new book about a hacker sounds really good. Thank you Sam!!
