So what's the game now? This, or the life I used to know?

Miki Jones's carefully controlled life spins into chaos after she's run down in the street, left broken and bloody. She wakes up fully healed in a place called the lobby - pulled from her life, through time and space into some kind of game in which she and a team of other teens are sent on missions to eliminate the Drau, terrifying and beautiful alien creatures.

There are no practice runs, no training, and no way out. Every moment of the game is kill or be killed, and Miki has only the questionable guidance of Jackson Tate, the team's alluring and secretive leader. He evades her questions, holds himself aloof from the others, and claims it's every player for himself. But when he puts himself at risk to watch Miki's back, he leaves her both frustrated and fascinated. Jackson says the game isn't really a game, that what Miki and her new teammates do now determines their survival. And the survival of every other person on the planet. She laughs. He doesn't. And then the game takes a deadly and terrifying turn.

Ta || bookishbluehead (bookishbluehead) | 1262 comments I have this book on my TBR for quite some time now and I'm happy I finally have a reason to really start this book. The summary sounds to me like a mix between Armada and Nerve. I haven't read anythin by the author before, so I hope this is as good as the blurp promisses.

Yes, awesome. I have only planned a few books here and there for the next weeks, so just tell me when it's a good time for you to start. :)

I can read it on the 12th or later


Karen Barber | 10137 comments Up to ch4. Like the concept though not really sure I’m 100% following what’s going on. Who’s set this up? How are they chosen? What happens if they succeed?

Yeah the beginning is confusing for sure


Karen Barber | 10137 comments Up to ch14. Some of my earlier questions have been cleared up, though there’s still a lot we’re not being told. Not sure why Jackson and Luka are giving each other such a hard time.

Things make sense the more you go. I hope you're liking it!


Karen Barber | 10137 comments Up to ch18. This is setting up a lot of questions-is there more to Miki’s involvement? Can’t understand why her friend Carly is being so silly. Entertaining enough, but I feel a little detached - perhaps because we don’t really know what’s going on.


Karen Barber | 10137 comments Finished. Full review on home page. I’m torn about this as the idea was intriguing, but too much irritated me.


Karen Barber | 10137 comments Julie wrote: "Ch 3 [spoilers removed]"

I didn't find Miki annoying to begin with - but by the end I was starting to wonder!
