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 dyi...more

Give me more PUSH! This was a great sequel that delved deeper into the emotional battle that rages inside Miki, giving us some much needed down time between all the battles. More clues were spread around about the purpose of The Game and its creators, but the whole thing is still just as murky as before. I loved going back into this fantastical world full of high stakes, and I cannot wait for the third installment to hit the shelves.

Miki is devastated. Jackson died in her place. He had betrayed...more

The Book Devourer
Love that synopsis!!! Can't wait to read this cause I'm dying after that ending in Rush

Update: THAT COVER IS SO DAMN COOL!!!! Can't wait for this to come out!!!!!!
While I enjoyed Rush and thought it was a cool idea, I didn't find it earth shatteringly great. I did enjoy it and felt it had a lot of potential to go somewhere really good. Going into this second book in the trilogy, I was hoping for more story development. Unfortunately the plot really doesn't move at all in this one. The Game, which is the most interesting thing about this series, takes a huge backseat to relationships. I wanted more about the Drau and their motives, where they came from, th...more

*MY Thoughts*

Push is the second novel in The Game series. The story picks up right where Rush left off with 16-year old Miki Jones and her teammates Luka Vujic, Tyrone, Kendra, and Lien returning home from their mission to Detroit, but leaving behind a mystery about the fate of Jackson....more
I was so unbelievably happy to receive an arc copy of Push, especially after the ending of Rush. This book completely blew away my expectations. Reading it was like having a constant adrenaline rush. It was so great to learn more about the way Jackson thinks and just Jackson in general. There were so many twists and turns that I did not expect. I really enjoyed the bit of insight we got on Lizzie. In general I just loved everything about this book. I can’t believe we got another cliff hanger!!!...more
What an amazing world! I really just love Silver's writing style. From minute one I found myself sucked back into all the emotions and all the action and intrigued this book has to offer. It's absolutely compelling, adding and exhilarating and still every bit the refreshing and unique escape I found in the first book.

While Push may be a little bit tamed down compared to Rush, I still really enjoyed the direction Silver took with this sequel. There isn't anything I love more then heart pulsing ac...more

Note: Spoilers.

• I love the way Push written. It was like reading a movie script, it was very detailed. So easy to make a picture inside my head.

• I adore the last part. GAME CHANGER! I’m excited. Giddy. NEXT BOOK PLEASE. I MEAN RIGHT NOW.

• I still hate the Committee and that world. I want to nuke it. I just have a nuke in me. *s

Quick & Dirty: Action packed sequel that really delivered!!! It picks up right where Rush left off and is pretty much impossible to put down!

Opening Sentence: “MIKI!”

The Review:

Miki was in an accident that should have killed her, but instead she got a second chance. But nothing comes without a price and to pay her debt Miki has to play the Game. Together with a group of teenagers she is forced to fight the Drau, a hostile group of aliens that are trying to...more
I liked it. But it suffered from the 2nd book syndrome as it was not moving much further. But I just love Miki and I love Jackson and. I adore Carly Micki's best friend!!
Ahh Push, the second book in The Game series, the sequel to Rush. This book was a bit hot and cold for me and I think expected a little bit more from it and didn't come away with what I thought I would. I thought we would get a bit more information about The Game really and learn more about the Drau and Committee but, we really didn't. We got to see the Committee again and find out that they really can't be all that trusted because they play their own type of game and it isn't that fair.

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 my...more
Love love love! Wow is book picks right back up where we left off. The action and adventure is just as addicting if not more. So many questions get answered but leaving just as many unanswered.

Miki Jones is badass. You can't help but love her, she's fierce , loyal, independent and will do anything and everything for the people she loves most. There is many things happening in this book, there is Jackson who tricked her but she loves, there is the game that she has to keep secret and eating her...more

Push was one of my most anticipated books coming this year. I had unexpected love for Rush last year and couldn’t wait to see where Silver took us in the next part of the story. I wasn’t disappointed.
Just as in Rush, Push is fast paced and filled with action. We’re immediately back right where Rush left us… Miki and Luka are back but Jackson for some reason isn’t with them. They know he’s still alive, but don’t know where he is and Miki is determined to find him. But before she can even start s...more
EEEH... I liked RUSH better. PUSH didn't really do it for me, but it didn't suck either. So... I don't know...

Miki Jones lives two lives.

Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wo- Okay, okay. I’ll write you guys a real review. But in reality, you have to read this gem to know what I’m talking about. Because I can’t even comprehend the amazingness that was PUSH.

PUSH starts off an exact second after RUSH, and due to the fact that RUSH is pretty much the only book I’ve read with a video game twist, (apart from GAME SLAVES), I remembered most of what happened. Which was a good thing. I don’t always like when books pick up rig...more

This review can originally be found at The Twins Read.

I read this book right after Crown of Midnight (thank the universe I gave the series another chance). I was in my give-the-sequel-a-chance phase and thought why not. If you've seen my review of Rush you'll know that I'm not a fan but to my surprise Push is actually a touch better than its predecessor.

It's a mess. After the events in the first book there's no time for Miki to get her emotions sorted out as she's thrust right back into the Gam...more

OUT's Review

I have to admit, I am not much of a gamer. And I really do not like reading about something I am not interested in but I am glad I did with this series! Part of my reading goal this year was to pick books I wouldn’t normally read and The Game series is one of them. With the packed action and many twist plots, Push had me on edge.

As I mentioned before, I am not much of a gamer and The Game series is well, about a game. But the world of this game is pretty amazing. Fighting against ali...more

A very different second book.

In "Rush" it was all about the game and the fight against the Drau. Learning how to survive and about the Committee. In "Push" it is more about the limits of the Committee and how they aren't really the good guys. We still get to see some action, but not as much as 'Rush'.

Miki wakes up and Jackson is missing. That is all she knows. In her second mission as team leader she almost dies; the person that saved her is supposed to be dead.

Our outlook of the Game gets a li...more
Oh dear lordy where to even begin with this book. Ahh Push, the sequel to Rush, was another book that I was not looking forward too. But even though I didn't enjoy book one, I still wanted to give Push a chance. Because knowing my luck lately I would enjoy the sequel more than the first one. Oh but sadly this was not the case I still disliked this book and this series. And at this point I feel like I'm the only one that does. Because everything else that I've read has been glowing reviews. So I...more
I won this ARC book from author Michelle Rowan. And wow, Eve Silver has done it again! Push was fantastic.

Book 2 in The Game series was full of many twists and turns. There's no down time in this book- it leaps right back into the fray, when Luka and Miki have just respawned out of the game. Miki is having problems coping with jumping right back into real life from the danger and adrenaline of killing Drau. When Miki learns that Carly remembers Jackson, she knows that Jackson must be alive, even...more
As you all know, the first book of "The Game" series - Rush - ended like this: "WTH, EVE SILVER, WHAT'RE YOU DOING, OMG, JACKSON". Yeah, something like that. And I expected Push to be not-so-good-as-Rush-was. I was wrong again. And I hope I'll be wrong about Crash as well.
Push starts where Rush ends: Jackson is gone, and who knows where in the world he is. Miki said she loved him but didn't forgive him at all, and he owed her. He was the one bitchy-enough-to-drag-her-in-this-game-whi...more

Now I have to wait another damn year!!!

GAAAAH I loved Push.It was soooo intense and crazier and I can't believe it.Some really crazy stuff happens....I'm speechless...and the last 2 chapterss....I CAN NOT OMG

And the cute Mikison(or Jamiki LOL) moments!!dashjfhdskf

I seriously can't wait...GIVE ME CRASH NOWWWWWWWWW

” Incoming , Gear up. ”

Woah I can't believe that I got
An arc copy of Push. So happy
That I nearly want the third book to come after this was published
Hahaha ..

well this is so much better than the first
we all say that because the second book is like
the climax in story . and of course i hate
cliffhangers which happen again aww..
but that's fine it is getting exciting not the kind that you
want to throw it in the floor. and tell the author " Can you please stop that or else " è.é
screw that Hahaha ...

This is the sequel to "The Game". It begins right after Jackson saves Miki's life by taking the shot from the Drau. But Jackson did not respawn with the other members of the team. Now Miki is distraught and ready to take on the Committee to find Jackson. This task is complicated by the deterioration of her relationship with BFF Carly Conner who can't know anything about the Game. Somehow the Drau get into Miki's real world and cause havoc at the Halloween dance. There is also the mystery of gree...more

Oh! My! God!

PUSH is so many things: exciting, terrifying, infuriating, heart-wrenching, romantic, funny. Simply put, it's bloody brilliant. The Game continues to wreak havoc in ways you can't even imagine, bringing new horrors to the team, new understandings and a whole slew of new questions for Miki to try and figure out. At the same time we go deeper into her & Jackson's lives, peeling back layers and learning more about their friends and families and just how far Miki & Jackson will g...more
I was very happy when this book was released, so I bought the audiobook and loved it. Except the ending, which has a bit of a cliffhanger. However, if you read book 1 (RUSH) and weren't prepared for another cliffhanger in book 2, then you were just being silly. Because just as there is a cliffhanger at the end of book 1, there is a cliffhanger at the end of book 2. I won't spoil either of the two for you, but I will tell you that book 2 does resolve the cliffhanger for book 1. Nicely, too, thoug...more
I was fortunate enough to read an ARC of Push because my best friend won a copy from Eve Silver and she was nice enough to lend it to me. This book flew by, just like Rush, but I have to say that I feel like not as much happened or it wasn't as action-packed. Don't get me wrong, I loved every second of it and the intensity of the ending scene definitely amped up the book to a whole different level. I loved that the ending was another cliffhanger (I know that may sound weird) but it was oddly sat...more
(This review is a spoiler. I can't talk about the characters without spoiling this book. So I suggest you wait until after you've read the book to read this review.)

I really am in love with these books and these characters. Often with sequels, there's that fear that it won't be as good as the first one, but this one was right up there as far as entertainment and my care for the characters goes.

Miki Jones is still fighting the Drau, aliens that have come to our planet and are trying to take over....more
Reading a sequel can go one of two ways. It can go horribly wrong, where you cannot remember anything that happened in book 1 and therefore are lost completely because the author doesn't fully recap enough, or you remember some parts of the first book and the authors fills in the rest. Sadly I have read meany sequels that land in the first category, and let me tell you that it can be a very hard reading experience. But I am so happy to say that when I read Push, the sequel to Rush, Eve Silver th...more

“I've told Jackson that I love him, but that was under duress while he was dying in a deserted building in Detroit after he took a Drau hit meant for me. And I qualified that declaration by telling him I didn't forgive him, that he had to live so he could beg forgiveness. On the romance scale, that'd have to score a negative ten.” 0 likes
