I have to say I was not thrilled to read a book centered around gaming but Warcross exceeded my expectations. This book was fabulous! It is an action pack story about a teenage hacker, Emika Chen, an orphan who works as a bounty hunter taking down people who illegally bet on the game Warcross. She is broke and being evicted from her apartment. Her world all changes when she gets a call from the creator of Warcross, Hideo Tanaka. He flies her to Japan and hires her to be a spy in this year’s Warcross tournament. Emika uncovers a dark plot that could destroy the Warcross empire that Tanaka has created.
This book has it all. A thriller-mystery plot line, a little bit of romance, and dynamic characters. I have already started reading the sequel to see how this story ends.
