This is my first book from Marie Lu and I was pleasantly surprised. I love the world building she does with this book and the characters are simply amazing. I connected with Emika from the beginning and I was so invested in her story. But not only her story, but all the characters. Hideo was such an interesting character I loved him so much, even though by the end he left me feeling very confused. Honestly I could read books about all the characters on her team because they were all so interesting and diverse.
Plot wise, I was engaged the entire time. There were a few things that I was able to figure out before the unveiling but this book still managed to surprise me. I wasn't really a big fan of the ending and the big reveal but I'm curious to see how things will go in the next book.
For the romance, I was 100% in love with it. I do wish that there was a bit more romance as it felt more like background to the games and all but I was definitely swooning a bit at their little moments together. I loved that the main characters were a bit older than the usual YA characters (Emika 18, Hideo 21) and I loved how this book handled some more serious topics or just made mention of things I don't think typical YA does. I do wonder if Marie Lu will follow stead like Maas and write more descriptive sex scenes (I'd be down for that) but I definitely thought the few kissing scenes we did get were quite steamy too.
I can't wait to read the conclusion to this series and I'd definitely recommend for everyone to check this book out!
