Hello, hello friends. I’ve been sitting on this post for a while because life is hard but also because coming up with the perfect Warcross team is also hard. There are so many good characters to choose from for the individual roles but I really wanted to get together a team that would complement each other in terms of their personalities and help each other make up for their faults. SO. I PRESENT TO YOU:
THE RED HOT LONES
Team Captain: The captain has the most difficult task of leading a group of rag-tags so finding the person fit for the job requires a lot of thought and care. While there are many great people out there capable of being a leader, I went with Yelena from Poison Study because even though she occasionally sees herself as a lone wolf she is actually really good at bringing a group of people (and lone wolfs) together. She is a born leader even if she doesn’t always see herself as one.
Architect: Peter Bishop from The Fringe tv show. If you’ve watched the tv show you know that Peter Bishop is amazing and absolutely worthy of the architect title. He is incredibly smart, clever and resourceful and I think those are all important qualities for a good architect to have.
Thief: Eugenides from The Thief will forever be the thief that stole my heart and while that may initially sound like a cheesy reason to make someone my thief, he is also a thief and a very very very VERY good one at that. He is occasionally a whiny brat and will throw fits from time to time but at the end of the day, he will get the job done in ways that will surprise you.
Shield: Nikita from Nikita the tv show is one of my fav candidates for this role because she is so freaking badass. She is cool & collected and knows how to get out of some tough spots.
Fighter: Rhee from Empress of a Thousand Skies has trained herself for years so she could finally have revenge for the assassination of her family. While she is a lone-wolf, I think she has potential to really become a team player. The other members of my Warcross team have all gone through lone-wolf phases and I think they would really help Rhee come into her own and embrace her destiny.

For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.
Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.
In this sci-fi thriller, #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu conjures an immersive, exhilarating world where choosing who to trust may be the biggest gamble of all.
