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.



WARCROSS teams are made up of five members: Team Captain, Architect, Thief, Shield, and Fighter.

I am going to assign YA Characters into each role and I will also pick 5 Bloggers who I think would be great in each role! Tag your it! So if you want to play too, even if I didn’t tag you, you just need to pick 5 people to be on your team and use the hashtag #PlayWARCROSS!

Team Captain: Hermione Granger from Harry Potter series is definitely who I would want to be my captain. She would do all the research necessary to make sure we have a winning strategy and she would be so prepared for whatever obstacles were in our way. Plus she can use her magic and create an endless bag of tricks to keep us ahead of the game!

The Blogger who I think would be the best team captain would be Christy from Tales of the Ravenous Reader! She has the best schedules and is always encouraging me to do more and do better!


Architect: Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games. This is a no brainer, that girl has the skills to survive and her bow skills make all the boys envious! Katniss can come up with the most realistic plans to stay alive.

The Blogger who I think would be an amazing architect is Sarah from The YA Book Traveler. She can create anything! I am so impressed by her creativity and I know she would devise the best setup!


Thief: Inej Ghafa from the Six of Crows Duology. She is already a thief by training and an acrobat from birth. She is light on her feet and can sneak into anywhere without being heard. It also helps that she stole my heart a long time ago!

The Blogger who I think would make a good thief would be Morgan from Take Me Away to a Great Read. Morgan knows the ins and outs of the biz and I think she would manage to find all the ways to win the game!


Sheild: Feyre Archeon from A Court of Thorns and Roses series would be an excellent shield. Her magic allows her to create all different forms of barriers and I can totally seeing her excel in this role.

The Blogger I would want to protect me would be Ashley from Mama Reads Blog! She is the best at shielding me from being left out in the cold! I wouldn’t want to play without her!


Fighter: Helene Aquilla from An Ember in the Ashes. Helene is synonymous with bad ass. Not only is she the only female at the Academy that trains the deadliest soldiers, she also continually beats most of the boys in any skill. She has the brains, ambition, and skills to win any battle.

The Blogger who I think would be an amazing fighter is Kyrsti from YA and Wine! She has made quite an impression on me with her blog and her amazing friendship! She definitely knows how to fight her way to the best of the best!
