5 stars

I wrote this post a while ago but never posted it 😂 here it is!

Summary from Goodreads

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.

My thoughts

I absolutely love this book. I read it for the first time sometime last year and I devoured it in a night. It was so captivating and the world that this story is set in is so immersive.

We get to explore a world where they have amazing technology. Most of the book takes place in a futuristic Tokyo. The world the story is set in is so interesting and fun.

This book is full of so many twists and turns and I would highly recommend this book! (I’m not going to talk about any of them, as I want this review to be spoiler free!)


I loved this book and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a book set in a futuristic world!

The world, the romance and the excitement made this book a five star read for me!

Look for my review of wildcard! Coming soon 😀
