SUMMARY (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.
Just as thrilling and action-packed as the first two! This trilogy is so much fun!

But this book disappointed me slightly. It wasn't bad, but I didn't care for the way that Silver took the story. For me, it made the series lose a lot of its uniqueness. I don't want to give anything away, but it felt like every other alien story that I've read.

It's no secret that I've never really liked Jackson, but I could not stand him in this book. He was being less of an ass, but Eve Silver did not portray him in a way that appealed to me. He's always described as "hot" and "sexy", and I feel like that cheapened him a lot.

All in all, CRASH wasn't bad, but it was not my favorite series ending. The first two books were still fabulous, so I suggest giving this trilogy a try.

CONTENT: Heavy kissing, moderate swearing (a**hole is the worst used), and lots of gorey and descriptive violence.
