I'll be writing/posting my full review closer to the release date, but I will say this was a LOT of fun to read and I found myself totally immersed in this world! Very exciting, great characters, and the writing is solid!
There wasn't as much physical game play/game action as I wished there was. There is quite a bit of talking about the game (Warcross) but I desperately wish there was more time focused on the time inside Warcross.
Also, the villian/evil plot twist was predictable af. I called it a little over a third into the novel.

Plot: 3 1/2 stars
Characters: 3 1/2 stars
Style: 4 stars
Pace: 4 1/2 stars

Dystopias have become so common, but I like the twists on it in this one. Good style, hard to put down even when sometimes characters irritated me. I've already got the second one (Which is why I picked up this one). so I'll give it a read too.
