Review – Wildcard by: Marie Lu

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?

Perfect ending to an amazing whirlwind of a duology. I devoured both books within five days. Wildcard was everything I had hoped for and more.

We pick up right where we left off in Warcross and the adventure literally jumps right in. I honestly love when stories do that. I don’t need a couple chapters to breathe… ain’t nobody got time for that *insert that funny meme here*. I love when stories make my heart pump right away. Wildcard absolutely does just that.

If you thought Warcross had awesome twists and turns, Wildcard has even more. Not sure how Marie Lu does it, but she weaves them flawlessly. All of our crew we know and love are back as well in all their glory.

It was such a fantastic story, I honestly cannot stop saying it. The ending was everything I could have hoped for as well. I was extremely happy with how not only the characters were left, but the world as well. If you’re looking for an amazing Sci-Fi/Fantasy definitely give this series a shot.
