‘Warcross’ by Marie Lu


Okay. So I expected to love this and I think I would have years ago?


It was adequately written, I loved the world-building and how this alternate universe was created. I was hooked, the story behind Emi was great.


I’m disappointed in the predictability, a young girl becomes obsessed with the young, hot billionaire and emulates him. Falls in love, deals with the media storm, and betrayal? Typical.

I admit I didn’t expect the lovers to enemy trope… So wow! 

Still a bit meh. I think the book would benefit from 100 pages of more investigation, detective work and battles. It felt a bit rushed and the sudden allyship with Tremaine sent everything off-kilter.

Sasuke was predictable. That’s all I’m going to say there.

Final thoughts:

I think I came in with too much hope, I was disappointed. The book and world had so much potential. 

I loved their relationship and how that was written. I loved the idea of the world and how it works with our world. But I could not stand the predictability and quick rush to finish which was the ending.

I land on 3/5 for this book. I won’t read again, but I did love aspects of it.

What are your thoughts?


For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game – it’s a way of life. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally.

When Emika hacks into Warcross, she is shocked when she gets a call from the game’s creator with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job.
