Summary: 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.

My Thoughts: Honestly, I’m not even sure where to start with this review. When I first started Rush, I was confused. It just didn’t click into place right away.

The book starts out with a girl name Miki being in a pretty bad accident. She is trying to save a little girl and instead of dying she is basically yanked out of the situation and threw into a game. A game to fight aliens and to live through it. The Drau. But its not really a game at all. She’s thrown into this world with a few other people. There was one boy named Luka who I liked a lot. And then another one named Jackson. There were others of course but I took a special liking to both Luka and Jackson in my own way. Both boys were neat characters. Their personalities were pretty opposite.

Basically, as the book goes on Miki learns more and more about the aliens, what she is fighting for, and what she needs to do.  We learn that she has to fight to survive.

I wasn’t really sure what to think of this one, and I’m still not a few days after reading it. I didn’t connect with it at first. It was hard to get into but by the middle of the book I was pretty interested and wanted to find out the ending.  And Jackson and Luka kept me wanting to read more.

I liked the characters, the plot was a bit confusing but had a nice premise. I enjoyed this one but I didn’t fall in love with it yet.. Maybe the next book will be easier to read. It was a creative idea though.

Overall: Liked it but I can’t really give it 4 cupcakes. I just didn’t love it as much as those books I give 4 or 5 cupcakes too. Once I got into it, I did start to like certain points so I would probably rate this a 3.5, not just 3 cupcakes. Give it a chance, you may enjoy it more than me or you may enjoy it less, only you can decide.  And of course, maybe if you're a gamer it might interest you more.

And be prepared for that cliffhanger! Now I do want to read the next one!

Cover: Like it. Like the blueish hue to it.  And the girl hiding in there. HEHE.
