An Instant New York Times Bestseller!
Return to the immersive, action-packed world of Warcross in this thrilling sequel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu
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?
In this explosive sequel to the New York Times bestselling Warcross, Marie Lu delivers an addictive finale that will hold you captive till the very last page.
Sure to inspire even deeper devotion among Lu's fans, this sequel picks up just three days after the Warcross finale, raising complicated questions about the consequences of technology and power. Emika Chen, exempt from Hideo Tanaka's unleashed algorithm thanks to a lucky accident, is reeling from Hideo's betrayal and the knowledge that Zero, the hacker whom Hideo hired her to neutralize, is Hideo's long-missing brother, Sasuke, whose disappearance drives Hideo to create Warcross and the algorithm. Having realized that the algorithm, meant to eliminate violence, may be causing people to commit suicide, Emika enters a tenuous partnership with Zero and the Blackcoats, a secret organization working to destroy the algorithm, and attempts to gain access to it by winning Hideo's trust. Though Emika maintains her moral center, she struggles to do right as the virtual world crosses into reality and becomes personal: "There's a point where the lines start to blur, and I am standing in that place now, struggling to see through the gray." Lu's futuristic world, with its immersive technology, feels dangerously within reach in this action-packed escapade with a thoughtful, emotion-driven core. Ages 12 up.

Very well written
I am in love with this book and warcross was phenomonoul! You understand the villian’s motives and characters are easy to relate to. Plus I am tired of reading books and on pg. 15 already know the major plot twists, I had no clue what would happen in this book or Warcross! I ordered the legend series immediately after I finished the first chapter!
