SYNOPSIS

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 neon-lit streets of Tokyo. Someone’s put a bounty on Emika’s head, and her sole chance for survival lies with Zero and the Blackcoats, his ruthless crew. But Emika soon learns that Zero isn’t all that he seems–and his protection comes at a price.

Caught in a web of betrayal, with the future of free will at risk, just how far will Emika go to take down the man she loves?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS

Are you looking for a duology? Pickup Warcross and Wildcard! They’re great if you’re looking for a fast paced story that isn’t just a standalone (trust me it’ll leave you wanting more) and you don’t have to feel daunted by the length because it’s a duology, the perfect in-the-middle read.
 
You may find these a bit predictable but that doesn’t take away from the story in fact it builds up your expectations and executes. Really enjoyed this sci-fi teen read and I think you will too!
 
The characters are relateable and admirable. Nobody really frustrated me and all the choices they made were made as if they really existed. Glad to have these sitting on my shelf.
