Summary (from Goodreads):
A thrilling action/suspense novel for fans of The Fifth Wave about contemporary teens pulled in and out of an alternate reality where battling aliens is more than a game—it’s life and death.
Miki’s life is falling apart around her. Her dad and best friend are lying in the hospital. The Game is glitching, making missions more frequent and more deadly. And someone close to her is waiting for the right moment to betray her.
Miki feels like she’s hanging on by a thread and the only thing keeping her tethered is Jackson’s hand in hers. Yet telling him how much she needs him, how much she loves him, feels like the biggest challenge of all. And if Miki really wants the missions to end for everyone, she’ll have to let go and be ready to fight when the walls between the Game and reality come crashing down. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned, it’s that she’s got a whole lot left to lose.
Crash is the pulse-pounding conclusion to the Game trilogy fans won’t want to miss.
The highly anticipated conclusion to the Game series by Eve Silver has finally been released! It definitely does not disappoint. This book has an amazing balance between contemporary and sci-fi. Crash is so fast-paced and is the perfect ending to the series.
The Game series is a perfect mix between sci-fi and contemporary! I love how the setting of all three books takes place during the characters’ normal lives and another part in a sci-fi alien-fighting real-life video game. Eve Silver has created a really unique series by incorporating both genres, as it is appealing to a wider audience. There is no previous gaming experience required to grasp the storyline. I am a big fan of both the contemporary and sci-fi/fantasy genres, so this series definitely satisfies both of those tastes.
This last book in the Game series is action-packed and full of plot twists. It includes scenes that will blow readers’ minds! There are multiple battle scenes between the characters and the Drau, the aliens that they must defeat, that will keep the readers on the edge of their seats. This non-stop action makes for a fast read, as it is hard to put down.
Crash is the perfect conclusion to the Game series. It ties up all the loose ends and is sure to fulfill the wishes of the reader. It is a double edged sword, as it is also sad to have this incredible series come to a conclusion. The sign of a well-written series!
Crash is the ultimate sci-fi book that I would recommend to fans of the genre. Eve Silver has created a series so unique and guaranteed to be unlike anything you’ve ever read. If you are new to the series, you should check out book one, Rush, and book two, Push.
