Blurb (from 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.

“Death’s a form of evolution, isn’t it?”
This was an action-packed story, with some interesting answers.
Miki was a strong character in this story, and she was obviously upset over her father and Carly having been in such a bad accident. She held it together though, both in real life, and in the game, and even held up against mental assault by the Drau.
“We need to do this, Jackson… it’s the only way.”
The storyline in this was about the final battle against the Drau, and we did get plenty of action. We also got some very interesting answers as to what the whole game was about though, and they weren’t what I expected at all!
“He didn’t just die,” I whisper.
“He was murdered.”
There was a touch of romance, but just a little bit.
“You take too many chances, Jackson. I know you want me safe, but does it occur to you that I need you safe, too?”
The ending to this was interesting in that I’m not sure that this is the end of the story? I’m think this is supposed to be a trilogy, but the ending was definitely left open for future tales!
