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?
Why I’m Waiting:
I mean, why wouldn’t I be waiting for this book? I absolutely loved every single moment of the first book – the concept, the characters, everything. It was such a great release for Marie and I say that genuinely and honestly, even though Marie is definitely an insta-buy for me. I think that the virtual reality world is a fun thing to explore and I really like what Marie did with it. I think she built up this compelling story with incredibly likable characters and then left us with a healthy cliffhanger that is just BEGGING for us to want more. Plus, have you seen that cover? MY. GOD. It screams that its going to be a phenomenal book!
