Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Warcross by Marie Lu, read by Nancy Wu.  

For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn't just a game - it's a way of life. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. 

When Emika hacks into Warcross, she is shocked when she gets a call from the game's creator 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.

Hard to swallow

seemed good at first, but quickly devolved into a mess of convenient circumstances and wonky logic. Came here because of Ready Player One, but this doesn't hold a candle to it

Almost snow crash

Good story reminiscent of Snow Crash classic. The narrator was not great. The whole story was read as if a hyperactive teenager was telling it. It really detracted from the dark serious parts of the story.

Good effort but less than original

Not as original and creative as Ready Player One. Doesn't have as a riveting plot and storyline as Red Rising. Character development is lacking in a detailed way. If this is one of your first sci-fi books, you may like it. But if you read many of the towering great, this will disappoint.
