The Game #1 Rush

THE RUSH RELEASES TOMORROW..... A gamer's paradise this book is. Presenting The Game #1 Rush by Eve Silver.

Here is the summary of the book:

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

When Miki Jones is pulled from her life, pulled through time and space into some kind of game—her carefully controlled life spirals into chaos. In the game, 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. Miki has only the guidance of secretive but maddeningly attractive team leader Jackson Tate, who 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 this planet. She laughs. He doesn’t. And then the game takes a deadly and terrifying turn.

Rush was..... a rush.... A Gamer's paradise is what this is. be it a pro-gamer, mild-gamer, a thrill-seeker or those of us(readers) looking to disappear in a world not their own. Its aliens, its thrilling, its action-packed and its exhilarating..... And its new with an equally amazing cover..... I'm trying to write a spoiler free spoiler but man this one will be hard.....

Ok i'll try..... Alien's are attacking and in a sort of hunger games way children are selected to fight this oncoming horde. Ok that came out wrong.... Its just its so brilliant, the concept for this book and so new that posting a spoiler free review will be difficult..... very difficult....

Ok I'll try again..... this is Miki Jones' tale, who dies after trying to save a child from an oncoming truck. As an after life extravaganza, Miki gets pulled into a world not her own. A world governed by laws not her own. She finds that there is more to this world than she ever knew. Contrary to popular believes there are other species in this universe too besides us and they want to take over Earth. Its a game.... its a very dangerous game Miki and her group must play to keep the enemy at bay.

I confess it took me a little time to actually get into the book because Ms. Silver didn't leave breathing space in this. Quite good work too. The rules of the game are vague but the action pretty much makes up for it and that is what makes it such an interesting introduction. What is remarkable is that romance takes an almost backseat in this book and that was what made it all the more interesting..... make room for the action to flourish. I am totally eager for its thrilling sequel(even though this is just releasing).

"Its a game and its a question of life and death.... Eve Silver spins a tale that is new, action-packed, gametastic, and intense.... BRAVO. BRAVA"
