Emika Chen barely made it out of the Warcross Championships alive. Now that she knows the truth behind Hideo's new NeuroLink algorithm, she can no longer trust the one person she's always looked up to, who she once thought was on her side.

Determined to put a stop to Hideo's grim plans, Emika and the Phoenix Riders band together, only to find a new threat lurking on the neo

When I die, I want Marie Lu to lower me into my grave so she can let me down one last time.

Finishing this book was a personal achievement but you can’t really brag about that at dinner parties. It’s just…the kind of book you read, and it fills you with the wrong things: you use a lot of energy to get through each chapter, and in the end, you feel emptier and less comfortable than ever.

I loved Warcross, and it floored me to read this book and experience such a sudden shift—I feel as though a scri

I like sweets. You all know this. Ice cream is one of my favorite sweets. I do not take my ice cream lightly. When I get ice cream, you can bet that I'm gonna savor it.

Well the other day, I was at a restaurant reading Wildcard and I ordered ice cream. It arrived and then it melted. Why? Because I WAS SO IMMERSED IN THIS BOOK THAT I COULDN'T THINK ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE BECAUSE THAT'S HOW GOOD IT IS.

Marie did an amazing job writing this conclusion to a fantastic duology. The character development

That's the difference between the real and the virtual. Reality is where you can lose the ones you love. Reality is the place where you can feel the cracks in your heart.

2 1/2 stars. Wow, I'm really not sure how to rate this book. I think it was pretty poorly-paced with weak characters, but I also liked some of the exciting twists and turns Lu took.

My experience with this book actually makes me wonder if I was in a really good mood when I read Warcross. Emika is so bland. Was she always this b

Despite my excitement for the sequel to one of my favorite books of 2017, I’m very let down by Wildcard. It did not reach the potential I felt it could have. I’m stuck between 2.5 and 3 stars because my grand disappointment feels so severe, but I think 3 stars is the most fair rating.

CW: suicide, drug abuse, violence

Let me preface by saying the great moments of Wildcard were GREAT. The scenes depicting games of Warcross were FLAWLESSLY executed in terms of pace, structure, and choreography. Ther

THINGS TO DO BEFORE I DIE:

1. Own and read every single book Marie Lu writes.
Elise (TheBookishActress)
I always forget this about myself: if I don’t love the characters of a series’ opening book, I should not read the sequel to said book. Even if I loved the ending. Even if I gave it the fairly solid rating 3 1/2. That is not how I work.

Okay, so here’s a basic summary of this series: a premise about video games gets somewhat underused but in a fun way. None of the characters are particularly interesting, but I guess they’re compelling enough for a YA sci-fi. Marie Lu is a compulsively readable a

I was SO nervous going into this, but Marie Lu did not disappoint.

The story picks up shortly after where Warcross left off - and to be completely honest, if it's been a while since you've read Warcross, I'd recommend either rereading or refreshing yourself on the characters. I didn't, and I kept forgetting who was who in terms of the Pheonix Riders/etc (I know, I'm terrible). With that said, I had a * little * bit of a struggle in the first 20-ish percent - it wasn't that the pacing was slow, I

“Every problem has a solution. But after every solution, there’s a new problem to tackle, some new challenge to take on.”

🌟 If you know me well, then by this point you should already know 2 things: I love Marie Lu, I have read all her 9 books and I own 7 of them. And you also should know that I separate authors from their works, meaning that I won’t like a certain book just because it is by a certain author.

i completely and wholeheartedly judge books based on their covers. i am not ashamed of that fact because there are some really ugly covers out there. so when the cover for this was released, i was scared. not going to lie - i was not a fan. but after reading this, i totally get it. it perfectly matches the dark and emotional vibes of this part of the story. theres a lot of darknet and blackweb dealings going on in this book and the cover captures the essence of that really well. i feel bad that ...more

Well, that was hella disappointing.

After reading this book I had to and reread my Warcross review. Not because I didn't remember if I had liked the original novel. But because I didn't remember if I had always thought Emika to be so bland, stupid, and annoying. She was certainly all of these things in this book.

In the previous book, Emika was an active and interesting character. In this one, she is little more than an observer while other people actually get things done. She asks a lot of questi

THIS WAS SO FRICKEN GOOD! Such a great ending that wrapped everything up so perfectly! While I didn’t read it in one sitting like I did Warcross, I still enjoyed every second of it, and Marie Lu continued to blow my mind all through the second book :)

“And that's when I realize that, at the end, we'd all wish for the same thing. Just a little more time."

Before I get into my review of this book I figured I’d remind you about what happened in the last book in case you don’t remember, if you do just skip the next paragraph.

Hideo Tanaka created a virtual reality game called Warcross that took the world by storm. Emika Chen hacked the game, but unfortunately was revealed to the world as her hack’s invisibility dropped for a second. Instead of be

- this book takes place right after the ending of the first book, so its very easy to get back into
- it definitely didn't take the turn i was expecting it to take (view spoiler)

I'm between 4 and 4.5 stars.

Wildcard represents the third series of Marie Lu's I've read to completion, and once again, I am amazed at her talent at building complex, compelling settings and creating characters you empathize with (as well as some you root against). Sure, sometimes the plots get a little bit technical or complicated, but at their core, Lu's books are about human connection, and we can all use a little more of that.

Ahhhhhhh the time has come! Wildcard is finally out, but I can't pick it up just yet because life isn't about what we want :(

I'll have to wait a few more days, so I really hope this book don't disappoint me. I'm already hurt from having to wait so damn long for this. Be good book, please be good.

I went into this one without a refresher on Warcross, but found that I didn’t quite need it. It was easy to slip back into this series and I was eager to settle in and see what happened...but I wasn’t even close to being ready.

Emika is still an awesome MC. She’s strong and loyal and I loved how she is compelled to do the right thing, no matter how dangerous. Of course there are some of the same characters from Warcross, but I won’t mention anything there.

Plot wise, I didn’t know what to expect a

Wildcard was WILD.

Warcross was one of my favorite books of last year, so i (obviously) had high hopes for Wildcard. but i was also really worried i'd be disappointed. spoiler alert: I HAD NOTHING TO FEAR (aka it was fantastic). all the things i loved about Warcross came through in the sequel, while also maintaining ~suspense~ and ~mystery~. Wildcard is definitely a darker book compared to Warcross, but it's one of the things that made me love

IT'S NOT DARKCROSS but i really do like wildcard (and i can't believe i didn't even think about that as a title?)

SO FAR AWAYYY. and apparently the original title was Darkcross? I kinda dig it. I'm, like, 400% terrible at guessing titles, but maaaaaaybe Darkworld could be a possible choice?

WHATEVER, i just want it.
