Waiting on Wednesday #48: ‘Rush’ by Eve Silver


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, Hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.



Eve Silver

The Game #1

Publication Date:
June 11th, 2013

Katherine Tegen Books

Hardcover, 352 pages

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.

Good Reads


That cover alone would have caught my eye. The typography, the colours, the characters placed subtly inside the letters..It’s all so pretty. And I love science-fiction and aliens and all that jazz!

What do you think about my pick for Waiting on Wednesday this week?

    Seriously, as soon as I saw this cover I wanted to read the book. Blue also happens to be my favourite colour. I like the “inside a game” concept too, but I’m not sure how I feel about the aliens. We’ll have to see.

    I love the cover. It is absolutely eye-catching. I have never been one for stories about virtual reality type scenarios. But lately I have read so many good reviews for these kind of books, that I think I might give Rush a try!

      You should give it a try! They’re so much fun!

    I’d seen this cover before but didn’t know what it was about. Sounds kind of like Ender’s Game. Interesting…

    There seem to be quite a lot of ‘people being sucked into a game against their will’ type books coming out at the moment. This one sounds cool though! And I read one of Eve Silver’s adult books a while ago and really liked it, so this one goes on my ever-growing TBR list. Thanks for pointing it out to me!

    This book sounds amazing. And that cover! I love covers that stand out like this. Also, it’s science fiction! I don’t think there’s enough of this out there in the YA market. 🙂

  29. Tiff @ Mostly YA Lit

    November 28, 2012 at 12:54 AM

    I was going to say…that COVER! I love it! This sounds like the Game meets Divergent or something, and I’m into it. I’m not sure about this whole alien thing, but I like that the author “has been praised for her…darkly sexy heroes and take-charge heroines”. Sign me up. =)

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW! =)
