Wildcard by Marie Lu

Many people are let down when a great book has a sequel that cannot compare with the original. For that reason I always begin sequel reads with a kind of detachment and I analyze the plot before diving headlong into the book. I am pleased to say that Wildcard did not in any way fall under this category of sequels. The sequel to the amazing book Warcross has even more riveting action and adventure than its predecessor.

Emika Chen barely survived Warcross, but the times ahead promise even more danger. Caught within an epic war between virtual reality and the physical world, Emika and her friends must play the best game of their lives if either world is to survive. With danger at ever turn who can anyone trust?

Marie Lu packs suspense, betrayal, and romance into one spectacular book. A master of words she ensures that you will grab this book off the shelf as fast as possible. Do not forget to check out the first book in the series! (Warcross) But remember…everything has a price.
