Hi, everyone, and welcome to this week’s Book Review Tuesday!
It would be an exaggeration to say that I was excited for this book to come out.
Since I finished it in November, I’ve been eagerly awaiting a sequel, clicking the “want-to-read” button before it even had a cover, and patiently looking through Marie Lu’s Instragram stories for the quotes she put out every Wednesday for a while. And at last, all of my prayers have been answered! I managed to find a signed copy (SQUEE) of Wilcard at the bookstore over the weekend, and I cradled it in my arms (along with a paperback of Shadow and Bone) all the way home.
And I must say, my expectations were pretty high, but Wilcard exceeded them all. FANTASTIC SEQUEL, if I do say so myself!
Now, before I begin, if you want to read my review of the first book in this series, go check out 11/28/17. 🙂
Enjoy this week’s review!
Wildcard (Warcross, #2)
After the shocking events of the Warcross championships and discovering the true intent of Hideo Tanaka’s newest invention, Emika Chen barely has time to catch her breath. But now, she’s been swept off on another mission, one with international consequences. With a massive bounty lying on her shoulders, she and her fellow Phoenix Riders team members are determined to take down Hideo and expose the truth. But the only place where they may find the answers-and protection-is from Zero, the notorious assassin who’s action affected the Warcross championship forever. Will Emika be able to send Hideo’s empire crumbling-and escape with her life?
Wildcard was just as thrilling, if not more, than its predecessor. Marie Lu’s signature writing, paired with a vibrant world and utterly lovable characters with perfect chemistry, made for a sequel that truly packed a punch. If you haven’t done so already, I highly recommend that you read Warcross, and immediately follow it up with this book!
Since it only came out about a month ago, we don’t have any news about the sequel. But if Marie Lu is sticking to her usual format, we can reasonably assume that we’ll get an end to this trilogy in this coming year. And man, I really hope we do, because the end left me gaping like a fish. I’M SO EXCITED.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this week’s review, and have a great rest of your day!
