    Promising taste of what the book will offer

    I normally don't read sneak peeks but I am so looking forward to this one that I just couldn't help myself! I am thrilled that Wildcard seems to pick up right where Warcross left off and am loving the character, Jax. Although this was only the first 3 chapters, I can already tell that my high expectations for this sequel will be met! Come on September!!! Thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Group for providing this great little tease.

    I loved this book and I'm sad I'm not getting more

    I tabbed this book so much. There's not a complex reasoning system behind these tabs. I usually have about four to six colors and each has a different meaning, but for Wildcard, I went for pure aesthetics and just used yellow, green, and blue. Blue was for plot points I found significant. There were a lot of these, but I did fall off marking towards the end just because of the sheer amount of important things that were happening on every page or every few pages. Blue and green were kind of interchangeable. I feel like initially one was for things I liked and one was for things that made me emotional but looking back through them, they definitely blended together at some point. I don't do a lot of rereads, in fact I haven't done a reread of anything besides The Book Thief and ASOUE in YEARS, so I didn't reread Warcross prior to jumping into Wildcard. I found out I didn't really need a reread! I was quite foggy in the beginning but in the first chapter or two, everything was referenced and I was brought back up to speed. I loved loved LOVED the plot. There was a certain point in the plot that I thought could have been executed a wee bit better, but not enough for it to strongly hinder my enjoyment of the book. I was excited to know what happened and I was gasping at new plot details. I was emotionally invested. I cared what happened and I found myself with a feeling of dread in my chest when things were going wrong and how things couldn't go wrong and if they did, I wouldn't know what to do with myself. We were introduced to a few new characters and expanded on Zero's story. Zero's story was PHENOMENAL. It was written so well and I was so connected. Jax was a wonderful girl, but I feel like a certain characteristic of hers could have been revealed better, but that's more of a plot issue. Boy did I love the romance. I really liked it in the first book and I liked it even more in Wildcard. I also may have feelings for Hideo but that's beyond the point. Anytime Hideo and Emika interacted, my whole heart was screaming for them. As for the ending, it fit. Was it what I wanted? Not exactly but it made sense. That being said, I want another book so bad. I'm sad that this is the final book and I'm never going to get to see more into the world of Warcross and all of our characters. I want more of Emika. I want more of Hideo. I want more of all the Phoenix Riders. I want more of Jax. I want SO MUCH more of Sasuke.

    AMAZING!!!

    I've been waiting for this sequel for sooooo long, and I can't tell you how happy I am that it's here. My hopes were pretty high, given how the last book ended... and I was not disappointed! The story started off a little slow, focusing more on characters and build-up, all so it can explode in the middle. From there, it's a wild ride that had me flipping pages so I could find out what happened next. The story was completely fantastic and beautiful with its emotion. I could literally feel my heart pound near the end, and everything turned out the way it needed to. I was very happy to learn more about all the beloved side characters and their pasts, as well as new and complicated character, Jax. But of course, the two main leads, Emika and Hideo, shone in the spotlight. Emika is always going to be my most favourite rainbow-haired hacker, and Hideo's emotional and mental torment is always a wonderful thing to read. They were almost over shone by Zero and his tragic backstory. Almost... but I may have been playing favourites. The world is always fantastic and I really don't want to leave it behind. The pacing is spot on and the action is always intense and thrilling. I really can't recommend this duology enough to lovers of cyberpunk, strong women, romance, and fierce bonds of friendship. It's truly one of a kind!

    My love for Emika Chen will never die

    “Hideo was a trap, too, Ash…and none of us saw that coming.” Hands up if you saw it coming! In all seriousness, the twists and turns in Warcross were a little predictable, but I still enjoyed the book immensely. It’s not a hardcore drama by any means, but it is full of action and heart. Personally, I love Emika Chen and I would read almost any book with her at the helm. Most of my hopes for Wildcard revolve around her. Emika please, for the love of your fans, drop Hideo like a hot potato. I’m worried that a lot of Wildcard is going to focus on her unresolved feelings for him, and I am over it. He’s bad news! There is an atmosphere of paranoia in the sampler cultivated by Hideo’s evil deeds, and I think it will make for a really compelling book. I am both excited and terrified to see what Emika will have to come up against. Overall, I think I will pick up Wildcard though there are some plot elements I hope don’t take up too much focus. I think this installment will feel more like The Matrix than Ready Player One. That will open up a lot of new techy opportunities for Emika and co. that I am looking forward to reading in full.
