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 an amazing debut. I went into it not expecting very much, but I absolutely adored everything about it. It had one of the most amazing story lines I’ve ever read and a kick-butt main character.
Where to start? ;) From the very beginning, the story kicked off with a bang. After saving another girl’s life, Miki wakes up to realize that she’ll be part of a dangerous game that’s actually played in real life. Everything starts to change for her and she realizes that everything is a lot bigger and riskier than she thought she knew.
Miki was a great, very relatable character. When she’s first told about what happened to her and how she’s now involved in the game, she doesn’t automatically accept it. Throughout Rush, she constantly tries to seek answers for what she can do and who she’s become. She does that with the help of another character, Jackson.
Jackson was an awesome guy. Miki and him had a great relationship, especially growing to become friends and maybe more. He always seemed to know more than he was letting on, and he helped the entire storyline fall perfectly into place.
I never got bored ever while reading this book. I flew through the pages and finished it in a couple of hours. Rush is a book I’d recommend to anyone, especially because of how amazing the story is. I’d give it 5 out of 5 flowers.
