Rush: Book One of The Game

Would you play a game that determines the future of Earth’s life…and your own?

Miki Jones isn’t normal. She gets pulled from her life at random times and into a game. A game that she is forced to play or let herself and the planet. She and a team of teens are sent on missions to eliminate the Drau, a group of aliens who are here on Earth to take over. There is no training and no way out when it comes to the game, just instinct. The only help Miki and her team gets is from the attractive team leader, Jackson Tate.

"The ending of RUSH will leave the reader stunned, possibly hysterical and definitely begging for the sequel."

In Eve Silver’s RUSH, the game is just a game. If you get hurt, you regenerate once you complete the mission. Jackson says that the game isn’t really a game, to take care of only yourself and never let your con turn red. Once Miki learns the real truth about the game and how the Drau plan on taking over the world --- the game takes a more deadly and terrifying turn than Miki would have thought.

Eve Silver creates a world where certain teens always have to be ready to get pulled from their actual lives. They’re forced to play a deadly game that don’t have practice runs and no training, the teams are forced to run on instinct. The only rule? Care for only yourself and never let your con turn red. If your con does turn red, you won’t regenerate.

The ending of RUSH will leave the reader stunned, possibly hysterical and definitely begging for the sequel. This is a must read for everyone, especially gamers. RUSH is a thrilling read that boys and girls alike will fall in love with. Guys will enjoy the action, gaming terms and references, while girls will love to read about the romance and thrill that this book brings.

RUSH is truly a book that will keep the readers flipping through the book waiting for the next time that the characters are pulled. Eve Silver creates an amazing world where readers are pulled into the action, romance and the thrill of it all.
