I’m so excited to be a part of this fun campaign! Check out the WARCROSS website here! Here’s a bit more information about WARCROSS , Marie’s newest book:
Series: Warcross #1
Length: 416 pages
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu—when a game called Warcross takes the world by storm, one girl hacks her way into its dangerous depths.
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 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.
In this sci-fi thriller, #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu conjures an immersive, exhilarating world where choosing who to trust may be the biggest gamble of all.
Today I’m building my own WARCROSS team!
For Team Captain, I think June from the LEGEND series would be absolutely ideal for this job. June is one of the most intelligent, practical, and most forward-thinking people in this series, and I absolutely adore this girl.
For the role of Architect, I would pick Genie Lo from THE EPIC CRUSH OF GENIE LO. Not only was this book one of my favorites of this year, this book also features one of my favorite brilliant characters. Genie is intelligent, spunky, and most likely perfect for this job.
What better role for Thief than Inej Ghafa from SIX OF CROWS? Not only is she an awesome character, she’s also incredibly sneaky and intelligent, making her one of the most well-known thieves in the Grishaworld (and my heart).
For the role of Shield, I would choose Juliette Ferrars from SHATTER ME. This is going to sound so awful, but Juliette’s power of killing people would be super helpful in fighting other people to protect the rest of the team. Not to mention that I love Juliette and Warner can come along even though he’s not technically part of this WARCROSS team!
Last but not least, I would assign the job of Fighter to Deuce from the RAZORLAND series. In case you haven’t read this awesome series yet, Deuce has a lot of experience in fighting both monsters and humans, which makes her perfect for this role.
