Warcross by Marie Lu
Warcross is a young adult science fiction story that takes place in a futuristic world, where virtual reality has become the norm. You can experience all you desire when inside the neurolink, a device produced by Hideo Tanaka. A story of fast paced action, with imaginative worlds. It takes place during a world wide video game tournament, featuring players from all over the world.
I couldn’t put this book down. I absolutely adored it. It was everything I wanted in a science fiction book. The author is one of my favourites and I’ve been following her since her first book, Legend. I have always loved everything about her writing but this absolutely tops it. The characters are vibrant with personalities that stand out and make them only seem more realistic. You fall in love with characters that don’t always do the right thing but always do what’s right for them. The world is intense and incredibly developed.
It brings up questions of what is right and wrong and who may decide what others do. how all morality isn’t just black or white and there are good and bad consequences to every action. People aren’t always what they seem and that is true in the case of Warcross where chracters take on online personas to battle it out in the game Warcross.
I adored this book, thank you to Penguin Random House Canada for providing me with an ARC.
