National bestselling author Eve Silver has been praised for her “edgy, steamy, action-packed” books, darkly sexy heroes and take-charge heroines. Her work has garnered starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Library Journal, RT Book Reviews Reviewers’ Choice Awards, Library Journal’s Best Genre Fiction Award, and a Romance Writers of America® RITA® Award nomination. Rush, the first book in Silver’s new sci-fi teen series, is now available from Katherine Tegen Books/HarperCollins.

Sliver lives with her gamer husband and sons, along with an energetic Airedale terrier and an exuberant border collie/shepherd.

She applied the Page 69 Test to Rush and reported the following:
In my debut young adult release, Rush, sixteen year old Miki Jones is dragged into a game where she must hunt aliens or be hunted by them. Between matches, she’s dropped back into her real world, the one where she runs five days a week at the crack of dawn, deals with school and homework, and struggles with grief over the recent loss of her mother.

Page 69 finds Miki dropped back into her life after her first encounter with the game.
We’re in exactly the same place—and time—as we were before everything happened. Before the lobby and the weapons and the aliens and the battle. Richelle said the hours were banked. I guess we just made a withdrawal.

“What do we do now?” I ask.

“We live our lives.” There’s an edge to Luka’s answer, a tinge of bitterness.
And Miki’s left wondering, “So what’s the game now? This or the life I used to know?”
