Push by Eve Silver

Last year I read Rush and was skeptical to say the least. Games, aliens, and shooting are not usually my thing. If I had to pinpoint my usual it would be more contemporary with a side of soul crushing sadness. So color me surprised when Rush became one of my favorite reads of 2013 and when the sequel Push was one of 4 books so far in 2014 that I have rated “5” stars! Yeah. It’s that good.

Reading Push is like watching a movie. I was immediately immersed in the world Silver created and couldn’t put it down. The idea of the committee and the Drau alien threat, even the game itself and the players, all of it is so interesting. Kudo’s to Silver for creating a sci-fi world that even non-sci-fi lovers can enjoy.

So, I know the real reason you’re reading this review is because you want to know if Jackson Tate is alive after that cliffhanger that Rush left us on. I will say that he is alive, but that’s all I’m going to say. Okay, I also mention he’s swoony, but you already knew that.

Miki, in this novel, feels like she has grown a lot. I thought in the first novel that she was relatable despite us having nothing in common but, at times, she let things go that I would have demanded answers about. In Push Miki demands answers and gets them. It was nice to see her take on a more active role in the Game’s leadership and with the committee.

Overall, Push was a solid second novel in The Game series, it was just as gripping at the first installment and it left me clamoring for the third book Crush. I can’t wait to see how things are going to end for Luka, Jackson, and especially Miki. If the twisty-turny plot of Push is any indication Crush is going to be explosive.
