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?

Captura de ecrã 2017-06-30, às 18.09.21I’ve seen quite many people slightly disappointed with this book. But I’m actually not. Not as good as the first one, but pretty good anyway. It was terribly entertaining and exciting.

I think this duology would have been better to just be one book. There was a lot less happening in this one, although I must say what did happen I loved. But it could be a bit shorter and just one book in my opinion. Some tiny parts felt a bit boring – since nothing much was happening, but that’s my only complaint really.

I really like the characters in this book, especially Jax, she is such a cool character! But so many others, the Phoenix Riders were all so interesting and I loved their friendship! Emika was also a really fun and realistic character. She was so freaking mixed up with everything, and I felt exactly like her!

This book was overall really surprising. I didn’t see the end coming at all! It was a lot darker than I was expecting and I really liked how realistic it all seemed. That was one of the things I loved in the first book, how easy to visualize it all is, and this book was no different. I loved seeing this world, and how scary everything is! It was fantastic, plus the end was really fitting and pleasant, and once again surprising!

I overall really enjoyed this duology and this book, and I would recommend it, especially if you like virtual worlds and books with gaming!
