Description

Rush pulls you headlong into the thrilling, high-stakes world of Eve Silver's teen series The Game, about teens pulled in and out of an alternate reality where battling aliens is more than a game--it's life and death. Eve Silver's teen debut offers science fiction and gaming fans romantic thrills at a breakneck pace. New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong says, "Smart and original, Rush is an action-packed ride with plenty of heart."

Sixteen-year-old Miki Jones's carefully controlled life spirals 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, pulled 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. Miki has only the guidance of secretive but maddeningly attractive team leader, Jackson Tate, who says the game is more than that and 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.

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

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

There is 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 secretive leader. He evades her questions, holds himself aloof from the others, and claims it's every player for himself.

Then Jackson says this 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 the game takes a deadly and terrifying turn.
