So cool, right?! We cannot wait for this book to come out next summer.

About the Book: Crash is the pulse-pounding conclusion to The Game trilogy by eve-silver. As Miki’s father and best friend lie in the hospital, Miki struggles to figure out if the Drau, the Committee, or random chance put them there. But she doesn’t have time to deal. The Game is glitching and she’s getting pulled into it more frequently now—more randomly—and only Jackson’s presence by her side helps her keep it together. But Miki doesn’t know who to trust. The Committee has been hiding the truth. The Drau seem as vulnerable as she feels, and someone close to Miki has been spying on her, waiting for the right moment to betray her.

Now, Miki has to convince Jackson to trust her enough to help her win the Game once and for all. But somehow telling him how much she needs him, how much she loves him, feels like the most impossible challenge of all.

 

To celebrate Crash's cover reveal, Eve Silver is sharing with us her Top Five Video Game-Themed Movies and TV Shows!

 

1. Wreck-It Ralph (2012)

image

Ralph’s a villain who yearns to be a hero, but when he sets out on a quest to switch sides, it might be game over for the whole arcade.

Tag line: When the game is over, a new world comes to life.

Why it made my list: Who doesn’t love a villain with a heart of gold?

Favourite Quote: “If you leave your game, stay safe, stay alert, and whatever you do, don’t die! Because if you die outside of your own game, you don’t regenerate. EVER! Game over.” - Sonic the Hedgehog

The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars in Get Even, Gretchen McNeil’s witty and suspenseful novel about four girls who join forces to take revenge on high school bullies — and create dangerous enemies for themselves in the process. 

Gretchen’s here today to share her Top Ten Revenge Plots!

 

10. Cape Fear

image

The Scorcese remake stars Robert DeNiro as a convicted felon released on a technicality who seeks revenge on the public defender he blames for his conviction.  He’s one of the most terrifying villains in all of cinema.  The drama class scenes with Juliette Lewis?  The finale on the sinking boat?  *shivers*

 

9.  The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

image

Lisbeth Salander + tattoo machine = the ultimate scene of revenge.  And that’s all I need to say.

 

8.  Kill Bill, v. 1 & 2

image

Okay, I’m cheating a little by offering two movies at #8, but only because the studio forced Tarantino to split them up.  The Bride systematically tracking down the assassins who left her for dead is one of the most badass payback plots ever.  And she looks amazing in that yellow track suit (and blood splatter.)

 

7.  V for Vendetta by Alan Moore, illustrated by David Lloyd

image

1984 meets Phantom of the Opera in this disturbing graphic novel about a bleak, totalitarian future, an anarchist freedom fighter, and his protégé.
