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 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 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.… (més)

    The Eye of Minds de James Dashner (Usuari anònim)
    Usuari anònim: Three of the best players of the virtual world in this book are tasked with finding the person that has been sabotaging the game. It has similar elements of gameplay but more friendships and bonding than Warcross.

I really enjoyed this book. It loses a star for some weird continuity mistakes that kept pulling me out of the story as I was confused as to what was happening. At one point it almost felt like there was a chapter missing that the plot was referencing back to but that I definitely didn't read. But it didn't detract too much from the story or the amazing characters. ( )

One of my favorite books from the last few years was the book Ready Player One. It was a great mix of video games, dystopia, and adventure. I have been looking for a book with a similar spin and the good news is Warcross is that book. It is difficult not to draw comparisons between the two, but Warcross stands well on its own.

Warcross is a virtual game that has taken over the world. Everyone either plays or watches Warcross. Each year, the finals of the game attract everyone who plays including Emika Chen. Chen is a hacker and a bounty hunter.

As she is watching the finals, she hacks into the game and is seen by everyone including the creator of the game- Hideo Tanaka. Tanaka recognizes that someone is trying to destroy his game and it is happening from the inside. He hires Emika to not only play the game, but to find out who is coming after him. He is the target because he is about to launch the latest version of his glasses to get into the game.

Emika is going to enter a world of teamwork, of competition, and may lose her life in the process. It gets even more complicated the closer she grows to Tanaka.

I really enjoyed this one, except the ending. I am not going to spoil the ending, but it has happened in a Doctor Who episode and a certain movie that just had a sequel this year.

Besides the ending, I had a lot of fun with this one. It is a good mix of adventure, video games, and Emika is a great female lead. I read this one in a few hours because it was so fun.

I gave this one four stars. ( )

The premise and the world of this book were interesting, but it was rather predictable and all the relationships between the characters seemed extremely forced. ( )
