Review and Creative Photo for WILDCARD by Marie Lu

Hello lovely people, today I’m hosting a stop for the WILDCARD Blog Tour, which is the sequel to WARCROSS by Marie Lu!🤩🙌


After reading and loving WARCROSS so much I had huge expectations for the second book, specially after reading that ending because OMG I REALLY didn’t see that coming! Once I finished the book, I immediately started to wonder what could possibly happen in the second book because if that happened in the first one, I was sure WILDCARD would have twists that would left me shocked and guess what?! That’s exactly what happened in this book!

As soon as I started to read WILDCARD I was immersed back into the world of WARCROSS with its high technology and of course amazing players who made this game even more interesting!

It was nice to read more about my favorite characters, Emika, Hideo, Asher, Hammie, Roshan and Tremaine! They were all wonderful characters who always supported Emika no matter if they had to risk their lives for it. I liked the fact that Emika let herself be part of something, of a team of people who later became some of the most important people in her life.

Another one of my favorite characters is Zero. I have always been intrigued by his personality and by how mysterious he is. He plays a huge part in this story and I loved how Marie kept surprising me even when I thought nothing else could happen.

WILDCARD has everything I love in a book:

  • Non-stop action, the kind that makes you feel part of the story.
  • Very realistic descriptions that as I was reading the book it was as if I was actually watching a movie.
  • Once I started to read it, I found myself eager to read more pages to see what could possibly happen next. And A LOT of things happened in this book. It was a rollercoaster of epic twists and emotions🙌
  • The romance❤️ Hideo and Emika are perfect for each other😭
  • Lies and treason… 😱😳

WILDCARD is definitely one of the best books I’ve read this year. It was amazing from beginning to end and I honestly can’t wait to get my finished copy and re-read the book😍 As soon as you start to read this book, Marie’s writing style and amazing world-building will make you want to keep reading till the very end. This is definitely a book you won’t want to miss🙌

I’m a huge fan of Marie’s books, WARCROSS is in fact one of my all time favorite books and I always find myself recommending it whenever I have a chance. The other day I was at the bookstore admiring the new cover of the WARCROSS PB😍 Isn’t the new cover amazing?🙌 I will also leave the synopsis in case you haven’t read it yet!

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 Warcross 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.
