“Death’s a form of evolution, isn’t it?”

This was an action-packed story, with some interesting answers.

Miki was a strong character in this story, and she was obviously upset over her father and Carly having been in such a bad accident. She held it together though, both in real life, and in the game, and even held up against mental assault by the Drau.

I can't believe I finished this series, it was just too good to be true. I am happy with how it ended and I highly recommend this series. You wont stop reading until the very end and trust me, you will love the characters.

If you haven't heard of the series, it's about a girl named Miki who sacrifices herself to save a girl who is about to get hit by a truck. When this happens, she gets hurt and closes her eyes, but after she wakes up, she has no bruises and she isn't hurt anymore. Miki is dra

I’ve been oddly fond of this trilogy from the very start. It was one of those strange situations when you can see the flaws in something quite clearly, and yet they do nothing to diminish your enjoyment or affection. Something about Silver’s story just clicked with me, and while I admit that it’s time, it saddens me to say goodbye.

Unexpectedly, Crash was an emotion-oriented novel. Based on the previous two books, I expected it to have much more action and suspense. But really, this boo

4.5 Stars!

Like every thing the synopsis promised, Crash, was one heck of a conclusion to what turned out to be one fun, wild, thrill ride of a trilogy. I never thought I would love something so much that had a sci fi theme and not only that, but something any gamer (something I am not) would die to be a part of! Truly, The Game trilogy has become one of my most favorite trilogies out there.

It is original, unique and so much darn fun. Action packed, mysterious, and a sweet slow building romance t

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.

Miki and Jackson must return to the Game as if everything is alright. This is even harder for Miki, since her father and best friend are in the hospital, and she has so much knowledge she has to keep a secret if she doesn't want dire consequences from the Committee. However, on the first mission of the novel, things are pretty glitchy. There are times when everyone feels as if they're trying to walk through a wall of water, and times when t

Crash is an appropriate title for the last book in The Game Trilogy. The story itself picks up right where Push left off, and pushes ahead like a tidal wave rushing to shore without restraint. There are so many interesting secrets revealed, that you hav

After the ending of Push, I was super eager to see how it was all going to end.

Miki and Jackson are still epic badasses. They're adorable when they're not fighting and I loved all of their sweet, swoony scenes. I still wish we could have gotten a bit of Jackson POV, but Miki knows him so well, it's almost like we do.

This story did have a bit of a slow start, but once the action begins and the answers get peeled back, it's delicious. I loved the reason everything was happening; it wasn't too fa

Reread August 2016: Jackson Tate continues to hold the world record for fastest character to melt my heart consistently. All he has to do is breathe for my heart to start doing funny things. And when he speaks, or is in action? Might as well be having a heart attack.

Original review:

Words cannot--will not--describe my feelings for this book. I'm currently suffering from a book hangover, which includes a lot of wailing about the fact that my favourite series is over. The devastation. Is. Real.

The final book in The Game trilogy wasn’t exactly a disappointment, but it wasn’t 100% satisfying either.

Crash picks up where Push left off. Miki and Jackson have just come back from a mission to find that her father and best friend Carly have been in a terrible accident. But her families life being on the precipice doesn’t stop the committee from pulling Miki and her team into the game against the Drau to save mankind. Its on these missions and through quick and intens

I was terrified how this trilogy was going to end, it was unpredictable, fast paced and could go in any direction. I thought it was all wrapped up nicely leaving the reader with a clear picture of what is going to happen long after you've read the last page. Eve didn't fail to deliver in the conclusion of The Game trilogy, giving her readers an awesome mix of action, suspense, and romance.

The Game series by Eve Silver has been my guilty pleasure. It features aliens and video games, two things I don’t usually enjoy, but for some reason I have loved this series. The first two books were edge of your seat thrill rides and I went in to Crash expecting a grand finale. While I did enjoy this novel it wasn’t the epic finale I was hoping for and the conclusion to this trilogy left me feeling underwhelmed.

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 v

Crash is a fantastic ending to this trilogy. It's fast paced and full of action and adventure. The characters grow even more, and the ending itself is satisfying. The romance is sweet, and there are a lot of plot twists. I've been a fan of this trilogy from the beginning because of its unique premise, and Silver finishes the series as strongly as she started it.

Miki is a great narrator and a completely relatable character. She is flawed and battles with depression and anxiety, which I love. She

A thrilling conclusion to the series, Crash was a fantastic YA read. It upped the stakes, revealed many more secrets, and completed the series with a great ending. I really liked it and I thought it was a top-notch read.

Miki was at the top of her game in this book. Even with the mix of trouble in the Game and tragedy in the real world, she kept it together as best she could and still managed to kick ass. As in the previous books, I think she's awesome.

Jackson was just as badass as Miki was. He w

I really enjoyed this book. I can't get enough of this gripping writing-style.
Though this book wasn't as thrilling as Rush and Push. I think the reason is mainly because the first half of the book was… how to put it… not slow or boring but compared to Rush and Push… nothing much happened in the first half. It was mostly focused on Miki and Jackson being in the hospital and Miki trying to navigate between her panic and depression, can't stop worrying and thinking about her dad and Carly.

Jeez, this series was so good. Hooked from page 1. Eve did such a fantastic job wrapping up this series with a sad but beautiful ending. Highly recommend; nothing negative to say. Big thanks to such a talented author for taking me on a whirlwind on an adventure.

It had its moments, both the good and the bad. Sometimes I thought Eve Silver had no fucking clue what she was talking about, but all in all, I thought it was a solid conclusion.

To be honest, the finale was kind of a let down, because it wasn't quite the epic, huge-scale and tense touchdown that Silver meant to create (I think), and was over pretty quickly, too. Still, I liked how the rest of the novel was still interesting almost the whole time and how our main duo had to figure things out on

Crash is the finale to The Game Trilogy. What started in Rush, continued in Push, now end in Crash. Everything crashes together. Miki, Jackson and their team are pulled into the game once again. Things are acting strange inside the game. Lagging and pixilation and things happening out of order. Once again Miki meets with Lizzie, Jackson supposedly dead older sister. She was caught in the game when she died. Lizzie says the game isn’t what it seems. That the Committee are not who they say they ar ...more

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

This was an interesting end to the trilogy. The first two books were incredibly action packed, yet this one was much more on the emotional side which really surprised me. Don't get me wrong, it's not like there wasn't emotion in the first two books, but it definitely took a back seat to the nonstop action. This time around while I wouldn't exactly say things slowed down, the focus definitely switched. We got to see a lot deeper into Miki's h

My Thoughts:
The Cover: I have loved every cover in this trilogy. In a way they are plain, but artistic and to me they have come to symbolize adventure, bravery, and the excitement of young love.

The Plot:  Can a plot get any better if it already has everything that makes it perfect? Crash is one of those stories that just flows so well, that is just so explosive. I loved every moment of Crash, of the entire series really. It has everything I love in a good book, adventure, drama, action, games,

If you think the first two books of this series are full of actions, wait until you read Crash. The final conclusion to this trilogy is beyond thrilling. Many secrets are revealed, the game is changed and what can I say, more swooning over Jackson! Crash is the perfect ending to The Game series. I seriously enjoyed this one the most.

Fear not, Crash is fast paced. Miki is as amazing as always, yet a little bit more of a badass than ever. If you read the first two books, then you know the second b
