Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Wildcard by Marie Lu, read by Nancy Wu. 

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?

In this explosive sequel to the New York Times best-selling Warcross, Marie Lu delivers an addictive finale that will hold you captive until the end.

Boring and droning

I enjoyed the concept, but the execution was poor - both the story and the voice acting. I really struggled to finish and had to increase the speed of the recording just to make it go faster.

Brilliant

Gripping story, the first book was a little slow to start but just got better and better and the second book even better.

Incredible!

marie has knocked my socks off yet again! great audio performance as well, nancy wu perfectely narrated this audiobook, great speed, perfect emotion and incredible pronounciation of all japanese words, something that really added to the book that I wouldn't have had through reading.

story itself was gripping and fastpaced full of twist after twist, and it wasnt afraid to go deep into really serious thoughts and ideas about 5he future of ai and technology. i absolutely loved it, a wonderful duology.
