Waiting on Wednesday #72

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on! 

Title: The End Games
Author: T. Michael Martin
Release Date: May 7th,  2013
Publisher: HarperTeen

It happened on Halloween. 
The world ended. 
And a dangerous Game brought it back to life. 

Seventeen-year-old Michael and his five-year-old brother, Patrick, have been battling monsters in The Game for weeks. 

In the rural mountains of West Virginia, armed with only their rifle and their love for each other, the brothers follow Instructions from the mysterious Game Master. They spend their days searching for survivors, their nights fighting endless hordes of “Bellows”—creatures that roam the dark, roaring for flesh. And at this Game, Michael and Patrick are very good. But The Game is changing. The Bellows are evolving. The Game Master is leading Michael and Patrick to other survivors—survivors who don’t play by the rules. And the brothers will never be the same.

This doesn't normally sound like the type of book I'd be waiting months in advance for...I'm not even sure it sounds like the type of book I'd normally pick up, but after such awesome things I've been hearing about it, I'm aching to get a hold of The End Games and see what it's all about.  I love creepy reads every once in a while, and this one definitely sounds like it will live up to my expectations.

What awesome title are you waiting for this Wednesday? 


  1. This sort of reminds me of The Maze. Awesome pick and I hope you enjoy reading it. :)
