This, or the life I used to know?
Miki Jones' carefully controlled life spirals into chaos after she's run down in the street, left broken and bloody. She wakes up fully healed in a place called the lobby - pulled from her life, pulled through time and space into some kind of game in which 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. Every moment of the game is kill or be killed, and Miki has only the questionable guidance of Jackson Tate, the team's alluring and secretive leader. He evades her questions, holds himself aloof from the others, and claims it's every player for himself. But when he puts himself at risk to watch Miki's back, he leaves her both frustrated and fascinated. Jackson 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.

Would you listen to Rush again? Why?
Yes, the narrator took some getting used to. She is breathy but you get used to it. I really enjoyed all the voices.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Rush?
I enjoyed the cave. That is where a lot of the questions started to get answered. And the Committee part. I was on the fence about Jackson but he sold me.
Which character – as performed by Amy Rubinate – was your favorite?
Jackson and Luca equally
Any additional comments?
I must admit that the 1st 12 chapters were hard for me. I felt just as frustrated as Miki. Not knowing or completely understanding what was going on. But it lasted 12 chapters.....you have to just get passed that and you will love this book.

Can't Finish It
I really wanted to like this book, but I'm about halfway through, and I'm done. The story is interesting, but I just can't take the writing. The similes and metaphors in this thing are just awful. I almost quit at "horror congealing like day old bacon fat", but I kept going. But when I got to "I replied with all the grace and elegance of a plane crash", I couldn't go on.
The narration was fine, but I don't think any narrator could have gotten me to finish this thing.
