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?


3 Reasons You Should Read…

Wildcard by Marie Lu


  • We’ve been waiting for this book for what feels like forever. We needed more and boy, oh boy did Marie Lu give it to us. I don’t think we were prepared for what we’d find within its pages, but that’s as much of a warning as we can give without spoiling anything!
  • Emika and her crew are just as amazing as we remembered and when you combine that with Marie’s ability to make you laugh, cry, and scream all within less than 400 pages- you have a recipe for success.
  • Basically, let’s just say that if you haven’t read this duology yet, get both books NOW. You won’t regret it and we are pretty sure you’ll be give us the biggest thanks ever once you finish.
