Summary
from Goodreads:
So what’s the game now? This, or the life I used to
know?
 

When Miki Jones is pulled from her life, pulled through time and space into
some kind of game—her carefully controlled life spirals into chaos. In the
game, 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. Miki has only the guidance of secretive but
maddeningly attractive team leader Jackson Tate, who 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.

***Excerpt***
There’s
a flash of light, blindingly bright. Colored haloes obscure my vision. They
dance and flicker and then disappear, leaving only a rectangle of light boxed
in by the dark doorframe.
I
see then that the door’s gone and in front of me are people. No…they aren’t
people. They have limbs, hair, faces, but they aren’t human. After the first
glance, they don’t look even remotely human. They’re pure, painful white, so
bright they throw off a glare. They look like they’ve been dipped in glass,
smooth and polished, but fluid. And their eyes…they’re a silvery color, like
the mercury in the antique thermometer that my mom used to have at the side of
the front porch.
When
I was ten, I knocked that thermometer off with my wooden kendo sword,
shattering the glass. The little blobs of mercury went all over the porch. I
was a kid. I didn’t know better. I touched them, prodding the little balls
until they joined the bigger blob. My mom swooped down on me and snatched me
away, telling me it was poison. It could kill me.
I
stare at the things in front of me: the Drau. I can’t look away.
Somewhere
in the back of my mind, I remember Jackson talking about Medusa.
Don’t look at their eyes.
Their
mercury eyes.
They’re
poison.
They
will kill me.
