This is an engaging sci-if book with dystopian tones. The plot is active, with intense scenes in both digital and real worlds. Lu is a solid writer in all ways, but I particularly like her characters, a diverse group with strong folks and great ability. There is a strand of romance tucked in as well, which Liu handles deftly.
Get it, read it and enjoy!
It's a mix of cyberpunk, LitRPG, and futuristic science fiction that hangs together well. The workings of the key technology requires an additional level of suspension of disbelief, but if you can accept something like the crazy-making chips in Kingsmen: The Secret Service then this isn't that big of a stretch. Just roll with it to have some fun!
Anyway, this book, Warcross, is similar in that it takes you into the world of virtual reality gaming and you'll feel like you're there, wishing you really could BE there! Fun book and I look forward to more books by this author.
