Rush pulls you headlong into the thrilling, high-stakes world of Eve Silver's teen series The Game, about teens pulled into and out of an alternate reality in which battling aliens is more than a game—it's life and death. This teen debut novel offers science fiction and gaming fans romantic thrills at a breakneck pace.Seventeen-year-old Miki Jones's carefully controlled life spirals into chaos after she's run down in the street, left broken and bloody. She wakes up fully healed in a place called the lobby—pulled from her life, pulled through time and space into some kind of game in which she and a team of other teens are sent on missions to eliminate the Drau, terrifying and beautiful alien creatures.There are no practice runs, no training, and no way out. Miki has only the guidance of secretive but maddeningly attractive team leader Jackson Tate, who says that the game is more than that, and that what Miki and her new teammates do now determines their survival and the survival of every other person on this planet. She laughs. He doesn't. And then the game takes a deadly and terrifying turn.

I loved Rush, but at the same time I didn't. There are parts of it that made me want to give it 4 stars and parts that made we want to give it 2, so it's getting a 3. First the bad: Too many of the usual boring YA tropes were used. Insta-love and what appeared to be a love triangle, which thankfully...
I thought Rush was an interesting premise. It is definitely different from any recent YA books that I have read. You are definitely thrown right into the action from the beginning, much like Miki is and have to kind of learn the ropes along the way. I have to admit, the one thing I didn't like ab...
