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 h

description

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 her, yes, an

I LOVED RUSH! I can't wait for push! The titles are weird but whatever ;)

Edit:

I'm currently reading Push and man is it amazing so far, a certain someone (sorry not spoiling) is super amazing and another certain someone is being aggravating yet lovable, I mean how? I don't know but this book has a lot of twists and I'm not even half way through yet!

The Game trilogy by Eve Silver is the perfect type to binge read. We are given a fascinating concept, a fast and perfectly paced plot, a swoony new book boyfriend, and a romance that made my heart race. I didn't really know what to expect going into this series - except that it's completely triangle free - but Eve Silver definitely has a new fan. I read these books so quickly, dying to know what would happen next and to spend more time with Miki and Jackson.

The game is deadlier, the enemy more ruthless, and the characters are just as helpless to it all as they were before. Miki and Jackson continue to fight the ruthless and eerily silver eyed Drau, alongside Luka, and their fluctuating team.

Push definitely has heart-pounding qualities and just enough romance to whet the appetite, although a little more, Miki and Jackson moments would have been great. Their relationship is being put to the test double time in book two, and now heading in

Push, the sequel to the meh-mazing novel Rush, is about the same thing as the first novel. So, why did I even bother with this novel, you ask? 1) I'm a big-time sucker for 2-for-1 deals (I bought it as a set with book #1, 2) I'm a glutton for punishment? and 3) I'm also a big-time sucker for cliff hanger endings, which is exactly how Rush leaves off.

Despite the teen-aged, world-saving team of Miki Jones and Co, the alien threat continues to worsen in Push. But at least her romantic life has kic

What kind of ending was that? Omgggggggg how long do I have to wait for the 3rd book??? The author is slowly killing me.

Unfortunately I liked this installment even less than the first one. This series sounded so cool initially and I got such rave reviews about it from friends, but I guess it’s just not for me.

Are you 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.

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 Pus

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 in Push. I wanted more about the Drau and their motives, where they came ...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

Reread 2016:
Every word that comes out of Jackson Tate's mouth is perfection. Every. Word.

Original review:

How I love this book. How I love Eve Silver. That being said, this probably won't be the first or last time I'm going to be posting about this book, or this series, for that matter. Because no matter how hard I try, I keep coming back to this book over and over again. Mainly because Jackson Tate is the love of my life.

So disappointing.

:/ Miki keeps borrowing trouble. Stop over thinking things, Miki. You either trust the boy or you don't. You want him to lead? Let him lead.

Also, stop whining. OMG.

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 acti

The first book, Rush , was amazing, and the sequel was also so good! I've found that sequels usually aren't as great, as the first book has a brilliant plot, and then the second just... doesn't. But this was written to be a series, and so the plot continued, twisting and turning in unpredictable and entertaining ways. I loved it!

That said, quick notes:
-Push is written in first person present tense
-the MC is a girl, Miki Jones.
-this book contains some cursing
-Rush , was amazing, and the sequel was also so good! I've found that sequels usually aren't as great, as the first book has a brilliant plot, and then the second just... doesn't. But this was written to be a series, and so the plot continued, twisting and turning in unpredictable and entertaining ways. I loved it!

That said, quick notes:
-Push is written in first person present tense
-the MC is a girl, Miki Jones.
-this book contains some cursing
-(view spoiler) some sexual references, but they don't actually have sex, if that bothers you
-this is the sequel. If you're reading it, you probably know that already, but just in case.


Also, a warning- do not read this in a plane, after a test, or in some other situation where you can't throw the book or get another one. Because I took the first one, and then this one, on a plane, and I was so mad when I finished it...

This author is great at the cliffhanger endings.

It's quite infuriating.

It's been a while since I read the first one, but as soon as I started reading, I could remember most of the previous book, and what I'd forgotten, the book explained. This isn't one where you need to reread the first book; you can jump right in and it's fine.

The characters in this book were brilliantly developed and written, the plot was great, and the writing was beautiful. I can't find anything bad to complain about in this book (while the cliffhangers are annoying, they're a genius writing technique that this author employs very well). If you haven't read the first book, you should definitely read it, and if you have, the sequel is a must. "Good" doesn't even begin to describe how amazing Push is.

I'm actually kind of disappointed in this book. I loved the first one so much and this one just didn't live up to the standards I had built in my mind. The ending of this book was very predictable and I saw it coming way before half way through.

The reason I'm still giving it three stars is because I love the few Jackson/Miki moments. I wish there were as many in this book as there were in the first. I would also really appreciate more Luka appearances.

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

Review originally posted on my blog: A Book Obsession..

One of the most impressive things about this series is how fast paced it is, which I love as it gives a thrilling ride while reading. Yet, even more important, that frenzy pace never once got too out of hand where it would have become too hard to follow. There was just the right amount of downtime and slower moments plus character development mixed in to keep things moving along perfectly. Trust me, this is one of those books that will suck yo

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.

Rush was a read that took me by surprise last year, a read that totally threw me for a loop with how much I loved it and how quickly I devoured it. I just couldn't get enough of the gaming world and crazy sci fi edge that the world Silver created bared. For someone who like me, this totally isn't her thing, I was completely blown away with how much I loved this story and wanted more.

When Push came out I jumped at the chance to snatch it up and dive right back into the alternate reali

Miki has left the game, but Jackson hasn’t come back at the same time, and while she hopes for the best (seeing as she can still remember him), she worries that she may never see him again.
What has happened to Jackson? And will Miki find a way to save him?


This was a good second book in the series, and I liked the action.
