Summary:  When a game called Warcross takes the world by storm, one girl hacks her way into its dangerous depths.

For 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 Warcross players who bet on the game illegally.  But the bounty-hunting world is a competitive one and survival has not been easy.  To make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships...only to accidently glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.
