Summary (from Goodreads):

 It’s either break the rules or die.

Miki Jones lives her life by her own strict set of rules, to keep control, to keep the gray fog of grief at bay. Then she’s pulled into the Game, where she - and her team - will die unless she follows a new set of rules: those set by the mysterious Committee.

But rules don’t mean answers, and without answers, it’s hard to trust. People are dying. The rules are unraveling. And Miki knows she’s being watched, uncertain if it’s the Drau or someone - something - else. Forced to make impossible choices and battling to save those she loves, Miki begins to see the Committee in a glaring new light.

And then the Game crosses a new boundary, pushes harder into Miki’s and her friends’ lives, and there’s nothing in the rules that can save them now.

Push is the sequel Rush fans will be screaming for.

Review: Push by Eve Silver

Push by Eve Silver is perfect if you are looking for a series that will satisfy your need for sci-fi entertainment. Push, book 2 in Eve Silver’s the Game series, is a fast-paced story influenced by the gaming world. This book is wonderfully written and includes an amazing plot and a courageous protagonist.

❀ Incredible World-Building

The world building in Push is absolutely incredible! Eve Silver has created a futuristic world that actually seems real. Inspired by video games, this series has a setting like no other! Part of the setting for Push takes place in a typical high school, while the rest takes place in a world that is a video game. It is evident through Eve Silver’s depictions, that video games are no stranger to her.

❀ A Real-Life Video Game

After teens are killed in the real world, they respawn in a real life video game to fight aliens. If that isn’t enough, they are returned to the real world and summoned again in a few weeks. While there are many references and a plot line that revolves around the gaming world, those without a strong gaming background can easily follow this story. The descriptions and events are definitely inspired by video games, but the storyline is so beautifully brought to life that non-gamers will be drawn in with ease.

❀ Relatable Main Character

A relatable and dauntless main character, Miki, is a girl that will not disappoint. When she is thrown into the Game against her will, she quickly adapts to her surroundings. Miki follows instructions well and fights her enemies, the Drau, with finesse. She is also very sarcastic, making her an enjoyable and humorous character to read. Readers will find themselves cheering for Miki as she makes wise choices and defends herself.

❀ Fantastic and Futuristic

Push by Eve Silver is a fantastic futuristic read that contains a unique concept and a fearless main character. The Game series is a page turner that will leave readers hungry for more. With very little time to wait for book 3 in this series, now is the perfect time to pick it up! Fans of The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey will absolutely love this sci-fi thriller.

    Much to my shock, I really enjoyed Rush, the first book in the series. I have never been huge into the gaming world, and sci-fi is something that I am incredibly picky about…. For some reason, I jumped on this one anyway, and I am SO GLAD that I did. It was fun, fast-paced and emotional, and I am very much looking forward to checking out the next books in the series.
