Push by Eve Silver Book Review

Push (The Game, #2)It’s either break the rules or die.
Miki Jones lives her life by her own strict set of rules, to keep control, to keep the gray fog of grief at bay. Then she’s pulled into the Game, where she—and her team—will die unless she follows a new set of rules: those set by the mysterious Committee.
But rules don’t mean answers, a
nd without answers, it’s hard to trust. People are dying. The rules are unraveling. And Miki knows she’s being watched, uncertain if it’s the Drau or someone—something—else. Forced to make impossible choices and battling to save those she loves, Miki begins to see the Committee in a glaring new light.
And then the Game crosses a new boundary, pushes harder into Miki’s and her friends’ lives, and there’s nothing in the rules that can save them now.
Push is the sequel Rush fans will be screaming for.

Eve Silver is such an amazing author, and after the cliffhanger Rush left off on, I was desperate to read Push. The first chance I had, I read it right away, and it proved to be an absolutely incredible sequel! 

Although most sequels don’t seem to be as good as the first, Push definitely is an exception. From the start, you’re thrown back almost exactly where things left off and I was absorbed with the plot from the start. It never slowed down.

I’m trying really hard to leave out any huge spoilers for Rush, so I’ll just say that Miki is trying to solve something that happened at the end of the last book (huge cliffhanger). 
She’s an equally strong character as she was in the previous book and I admired the way she thought the decisions she made completely through. Some of the things she went through were heartbreaking, but she’s definitely grown more experienced in the game itself.

I don’t think you can ask for a better fictional guy that Jackson himself. Although he can be moody, he’s a great leader and you see that there’s so much more to him than you’d initially expect, especially considering he’s warmed up quite a bit from the previous book ;) Luka is another character I love, and he’s such an awesome, slightly hilarious friend to Miki. There’s also more appearances from Carly, a friend of Miki who knows nothing about the game. It became hard for Miki to maintain her friendship with her with so many secrets between them. 

There was a very surprising twist that I never suspected would happen. I already had my doubts about the Committee, but something pretty shocking occurred, relating to Jackson. I’m excited to see what will come of it in the next book. 

Push was a stellar sequel, and especially if you like video games or sci-fi, I’m sure you’ll love this book. I’d give Push 4.5 out of 5 flowers.
