Goodreads Synopsis:

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 sequel Rush fans will be screaming for.

My Review:

Wow. Just amazing.
Book 2 was filled with many twists and turns. The story picks up right at the moment when Luka and Miki re-spawn out of the game. As soon as they re-spawn Miki has to adjust to coping with killing a Drau and dealing with Jackson's sacrifice for her life. After days of sadness, Miki learns that Carly remembers Jackson. Miki immediately rushes to demand answers from the Committee and wants to see Jackson in order to save him.      

When Miki is pulled in front of the Committee and demands the release of Jackson, she is faced with the ultimate decision that will make or break her. Miki, being her stubborn self argues and makes very cogent statements, thus resulting in the release of Jackson. However, the catch is that Jackson and Miki remain in the game and fight the Drau.

As the days go by and no one is being pulled into the game, Miki, Jackson, and her team start to relax a bit. They have decided to go to the school dance dressed as gamers. The irony takes place when the dance turns into the game as they are suddenly pulled and are thrown into the ring. The Drau have almost reached the real world and the only ones standing in their way are Miki, Jackson and their team.  

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this second installment. The characters were amazing as the first time they were introduced and I loved the action that was presented in this book. Silver did a good job in creating treachery characters, who I suspect will have major roles in book three. We also get more Jackson and Miki, we learn more about Jackson's sister and the book ends with a huge cliffhanger! I can't wait for book three to come out!!
