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?

Hacker Emika Chen finds herself caught in a tangle of lies, torn between two sides in this highly anticipated follow-up to WARCROSS.

After learning about Hideo Tanaka’s Neurolink—which grants him control of nearly all Warcross users—their budding relationship comes to a halt.

“I refuse to believe that he’s nothing more than a monster… I keep going because I need to find the boy again, the beating heart buried underneath his lie. I have to stop him, in order to save him.”

As Emika and the Phoenix Riders plot to stop Hideo, the mysterious Zero tempts Emika to join forces to achieve the same goal.

As bullets fly in her direction, however, she’s forced to trust a secret organization of vigilantes that leave much to be desired when it comes to integrity. Emika suspects there’s more to Zero than meets the eye, and again she struggles with whom to trust as the stakes get even higher.

“It’s too late to back away from this… The only way out is through.”

Soon enough, Emika deciphers a web of deception years in the making, secrets that will tear those she cares about apart. In a race against time and with the fate of their world hanging in the balance, Emika Chen—Warcross wildcard—puts it all on the line before it’s too late.

This propulsive finale is every bit as exciting as its predecessor.  Action-packed, immersive and with well-drawn, nuanced characters at the helm, the story comes to life vibrantly. The narrative moves fast, ratcheting emotional and plot-driven tension, and culminating in a breathtaking, surprising finale.

“When the world is murky, guide yourself with your own steady light.”
