The Writing

Marie Lu’s writing is uniquely clear and elegant, giving you a full, rich reading experience. You could easily cope up with the techie stuff, whether you’re a computer geek or not. She describes and explains characters and events with such clarity that it is easy for readers to visualize the scene in the book. I find myself visualizing the book’s events, especially the Warcross tournaments, and I love how I feel as though I’m part of the story itself.


The Characters

The story centers around Emika Chen, bounty hunter and clever hacker. I appreciate her bravery and nerve throughout the book. However, she takes huge risks and still manages to get shocked or surprised with the result. As for Hideo… well he’s definitely going to make it to my list of book boyfriends. He’s charming in a dark way and limits his trust. I love how he transforms into someone new whenever he opens up about his troubles.


The Plot

The storyline is pure awesomesauce. The book had a great amount of twists and turns, but it was a bit too predictable. As I read along, I’ve stumbled upon a few suspicions about how it would end, one of them turning out to be true. A couple of plot twists appeared near the end, which had kind of caught me off guard.



One thing’s for sure: by the end of the book, I was fangirling like crazy, and I needed MORE. Can’t wait for the sequel. Overall, this book is amazing, and I didn’t regret reading it.
