Review: Crash (The Game #3) by Eve Silver

Crash (The Game, #3)Crash

Author: Eve Silver
Series: The Game #3
Pages: 368
Release date: 9th June 2015
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

Synopsis (Goodreads): A thrilling action/suspense novel for fans of The Fifth Wave about contemporary teens pulled in and out of an alternate reality where battling aliens is more than a game—it's life and death.

Miki’s life is falling apart around her. Her dad and best friend are lying in the hospital. The Game is glitching, making missions more frequent and more deadly. And someone close to her is waiting for the right moment to betray her. 

Miki feels like she’s hanging on by a thread and the only thing keeping her tethered is Jackson’s hand in hers. Yet telling him how much she needs him, how much she loves him, feels like the biggest challenge of all. And if Miki really wants the missions to end for everyone, she’ll have to let go and be ready to fight when the walls between the Game and reality come crashing down. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned, it’s that she’s got a whole lot left to lose.

Crash is the pulse-pounding conclusion to the Game trilogy fans won’t want to miss.

Review: 4/5 stars

I am a huge fan of The Game series by Eve Silver so I couldn’t wait to get started on Crash and despite enjoying it overall, it wasn’t my favourite installment unfortunately but I am relieved we finally have answers.

Crash begins where Push left off; it was a pretty big cliff-hanger so I was eager to see what would happen. The action begins right off the bat and it was non-stop for a majority of the book.

Miki continues to progress as a character but we see her begin to crumble, her father and best friend are in the hospital. There are glitches within the game, making missions more frequent and more deadly. We see a softer side to Jackson and I adored him that little bit more, their relationship has progressed at a realistic pace and hasn’t been at the forefront of the story.

Crash was fast-paced with non-stop action, I never thought I’d ever see the day where I would find action sequences tedious but I felt it was never ending and the small breaks the characters were able to catch weren’t without drama. The outcome of the Game certainly was not what I was expecting, the world-building is complex and creative and the gaming aspect was done very well. The plot has always been quite mysterious so I am relieved to have answers, even if I am still a little baffled and confused by it all.

We get some great side characters, one completely shocked me but I felt it was inevitable that someone would betray the team at some stage. I loved Lizzie’s character – prior to Crash I wasn’t sure whether she could be trusted but she became quite the asset.

I was hooked on Eve Silver’s writing, it is engaging and never failed to keep me entertained; I am sad to see this series come to an end but I am satisfied with the outcome.

Overall, well written, emotionally intense and action packed; I highly recommend The Game series by Eve Silver.
