Push by Eve Silver

Author: Eve Silver
Publisher: Katherine Tegan Books
Date of publication: June 2014

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, and 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 second in The Game trilogy.  I enjoyed the first book.  Autumn and I reviewed  Rush back in April 2014.  I know that the first book left me with a few questions that I was hoping would be answered in this book.  Unfortunately, I have more questions.  I feel like this second book is a lot like the second books of other trilogies  Not a lot happens to further the story along.  This whole series probably could be condensed into two books.

That isn't to say Push wasn't enjoyable.  It was fast paced with a lot of action.  I found myself liking the characters more and more.  The fight scenes in particular were nail biting and dangerous. Not everyone is safe from harm in this one as in the first one.  The book also ended with in another cliffhanger.  I am looking forward to Crash, the finally book in the trilogy.   I am hoping for a satisfying conclusion!

Sounds interesting, I'll have to keep the series in mind next time I'm in the mood for dystopia.
