Overview

Fans of the 5th Wave series will devour the pulse-pounding conclusion to The Game trilogy, by bestselling author Eve Silver, about teens pulled in and out of an alternate reality where battling aliens is more than a game—it's life and death.

As her dad and best friend lie dying in the hospital, Miki is almost certain the Committee is trying to sabotage her life. The Game is glitching. The missions are more frequent, the alien Drau more deadly, and whatever has been tracking her thoughts more intrusive. The only thing holding Miki together is her boyfriend, Jackson, but somehow telling him how much she needs—and loves—him feels like the most terrifying challenge of all.

Can Miki and Jackson make it through the final mission alive and win the Game before the walls between their alien-fighting nightmares and the real world come crashing down? Or will the world and everyone Miki loves disappear forever?

Crash is the fiercely satisfying conclusion to a trilogy Pittacus Lore, New York Times bestselling author of the I Am Number Four series, raves is packed with "thrilling action and addictive romance—a mind-bending rush of a read!"

New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong
“Smart and original, Rush is an action-packed ride with plenty of heart.”
VOYA, June 2015 (Vol. 38, No. 2) - Ann McDuffie
As in Rush (Katherine Tegen, 2013) and Push (Katherine Tegen, 2014/Voya June 2014) before, Miki and her team continue the battle against terrifying and beautiful alien creatures known as the Drau in book three of The Game trilogy. Miki’s carefully controlled life is disrupted each time she is pulled through time and space into the game, in which she and the other teens are sent on dangerous missions by the mysterious committee. Now, Miki’s father and best friend lay critically injured in the hospital. Her boyfriend’s dead sister is trying to communicate with her in the game. The Drau she believed were evil may also be trying to communicate with Miki, shattering the lies she has been fed since being forced into the game. If readers are still calling for dystopian fiction, here is a fast-paced adventure for science fiction and gaming fans. Crash has all the elements of another teen blockbuster—a strong female protagonist with minor, relatable flaws; a simmering romance; an evil government committee; and a secret resistance society. Fans of Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave series will devour Crash. It is part of The Game trilogy, so purchase as a set so readers can start at the beginning. Reviewer: Ann McDuffie; Ages 12 to 18.

This final novel in the Game trilogy finds Miki and Jackson fighting evil forces mentally and interdimensionally. Middle-volume Push (2014) found the alien nemesis, Drau, crossing dimensions and entering Miki's real life. Now, in the aftermath, Miki is anguished by her father's hospitalization and her best friend's coma. Her existence is ruled by the will of the omniscient and eternal Committee. They can control both time and space and pull her without warning into the deadly live-action cybergame, ostensibly to save humankind. Miki's boyfriend, Jackson, also a pawn of the Committee, is always reverently at her side but can do little to alleviate her guilt and terror. Her entire perspective changes in a one-on-one death match that ends with a Drau begging her for mercy. As the Committee, bored and bloodthirsty, looks on like Romans in an arena, she begins to comprehend the true villains. Silver's message becomes clear as Miki and Jackson come to understand that unity brings power and emotion can trump intellect. Although the battle scenes feel like reruns at this point, Miki's chaste and deep love for Jackson gives continuity to the story as it reaches its satisfying conclusion. Leveled up and out, this is a terrific, multifaceted finish to a sci-fi trilogy tailor-made for gamers. (Dystopian romance. 13-18)

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. While I understand the importance of it, I think it took too much from the book. And from Miki, who needed her focus more than ever. But the action was on in the second half of the book. I didn't feel the same rush I felt in books 1 and 2 but I still really enjoyed it.
