    i completely and wholeheartedly judge books based on their covers. i am not ashamed of that fact because there are some really ugly covers out there. so when the cover for this was released, i was scared. not going to lie - i was not a fan. but after reading this, i totally get it. it perfectly matches the dark and emotional vibes of this part of the story. theres a lot of darknet and blackweb dealings going on in this book and the cover captures the essence of that really well. i feel bad that ...more

    I went into this one without a refresher on Warcross, but found that I didn’t quite need it. It was easy to slip back into this series and I was eager to settle in and see what happened...but I wasn’t even close to being ready.

    Emika is still an awesome MC. She’s strong and loyal and I loved how she is compelled to do the right thing, no matter how dangerous. Of course there are some of the same characters from Warcross, but I won’t mention anything there.

    Plot wise, I didn’t know what to expect a

    I was SO nervous going into this, but Marie Lu did not disappoint.

    The story picks up shortly after where Warcross left off - and to be completely honest, if it's been a while since you've read Warcross, I'd recommend either rereading or refreshing yourself on the characters. I didn't, and I kept forgetting who was who in terms of the Pheonix Riders/etc (I know, I'm terrible). With that said, I had a * little * bit of a struggle in the first 20-ish percent - it wasn't that the pacing was slow, I

    Marie, sweetie, honey, I love you... but you HAVE to get new cover designers. you and Emika Chen deserve better

    also I read the excerpt and it was literally just the words “Someone is watching me” that gave me chills. I love Marie Lu

    literally all i want to do right now is lie facedown on the ground and contemplate over what the actual fuckhell i did to deserve this. @god say it to my face bitch

    every time i read a terrible book i feel like i'm being fucked over twice, because not only do i have to 1) read the damn thing, i also have to 2) review it and go through the whole disaster again. good thing i've been practicing burning self-hatred for 20 years now in order to prepare myself for situations like this 🤠👉🏼

    i don't think

    but, let me start at the beginning:


    the core, the whole idea of warcross, to me, was brilliant. it was exciting and thrilling and absolutely terrifying: virtual reality advancing even farther than we can imagine in this day and age. marie lu created something that i loved. the warcross matches were the first thing that i could compare to quidditch in terms of "oh my god i love this i want to be a part of this please give me 398 pages of only this". and that was where i went wrong. apparently.

    because marie lu had a completely different idea for the series. the original idea of warcross slowly perished under whatever it is that wildcard was trying to be. she felt the need to turn it into something that i couldn't identify anymore.

    and this is where i have to put my !!!!!!!!! SPOILER WARNING !!!!!!!!!

    i'm about to get real petty so i suggest you better RUN (all the issues i had with this book: in notes):

    • this went from the idea of a VR world to an AI trying to take over humanity, somehow

    • ummm???

    • literally nobody asked for this

    • can i just enjoy my fighting robot dragons in peace

    • i feel like a lot of the actions that were happening didn't even make sense

    • marie lu was literally just throwing plot twist after plot twist at us, trying to make something great out of something that was already enough. and ruined it with that

    • please all i want is one goddamn game of warcross.... isn't that what i signed up for?

    • stop the redemption arc trope i'm begging to all gods

    • emika going back to hideo (a #confirmed murderer) literally gave me the fucking rest

    • ????????? NO SERIOUSLY IS NOBODY GOING TO TALK ABOUT THAT

    • HE MIND CONTROLLED THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD??? and when confronted with that he was legit like "y'all hear sum?"

    • at least feel a LITTLe bit bad about yourself

    • did anybody even really like hideo? genuine question

    • is hideo short for hideous

    • emika was so stale in this whole entire thing really

    • i was bored during a solid 20% of the book. which doesn't sound like a lot but BOI IT IS i tried so hard not to skim

    • where are my team dynamics? i literally only asked for one (1) thing

    • not enough Asher

    • again: the original idea of the warcross games literally went out the window

    • do i even have to talk about Zero

    • god i'm so pissed

    • at least make it gayer

    • everything is messy messy messy i have a headache just thinking about the last 100 pages

    • why

    • god why

    • it felt like marie lu had some good ideas but she didn't execute them well enough

    • and all at once

    • nothing made sense


    and that's that on that, folks. the sad thing? i actually really liked the first half of the book. and i was so ready to love this book with all of my shriveled up tired soul.

    wildcard ruined warcross for me. and that's the tea for today! thanks for tuning in.

    do you ever do something and as you're doing it you're like "why am i doing this, this is a bad choice, why am i like this?"

    that's me with reading this book
