Waiting on Wednesday: The End Games

We all have something we're waiting for.

The End Games
Author: T. Michael Martin
Series: ---
Release Date: 7 May 2013

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.

For those who don't know, I'm a HUGE Slenderman fan. I follow all the big guys - Marble Hornets, Trible Twelve, Everyman Hybrid, and Dark Harvest (though DH is my least favorite). I love the horror and the suspense and even though I want to punch the characters in the face, it's totally worth it.

Well, not Noah. I've never wanted to punch Noah. But I digress.

The End Games reminds me a LOT of Slenderman. It's the same mysterious monster, the same forest setting, the focus on young brothers; hell, even the cover has a very Slender feel to it.

And I want this book like mad because of it.

What do you guys think?


  1. I just got approved for an e-books of this via Edelweiss. It looks awesome and your excitement has just made me want to read it RIGHT NOW.

    1. Clearly you need to read it so I can live vicariously through you.

  2. It sounds like it might be a little too horror for my tastes, but the game master aspect is kind of freaky/cool. Nice pick!

  3. This sounds extremely awesome. Slenderman scares the ever-living crap out of me, but I am enticed to just snatch this book off the shelves :) Wonderful pick, Nicole

  4. Um, yes. I am having a fit for this one.

    Here is where it had me: "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."

    Rural WV, brothers, flesh-eating creatures? I can't wait. Sigh me up.

  5. This sounds so creepy but also interesting. I want to hear more about the game and "Bellows". Oh and the cover gives me chills.

    Great pick!

  6. Kinda Maze Runner sounding. It looks creepy and actiony, just my type of book! Awesome WoW :D

  7. This cover freaks me out so much. I am the biggest wimp on the planet so seriously just looking at it makes me shudder in fear. This sounds like a book A LOT of people will like, but I probably won't be reading it because I'll get too scared haha.

  8. I like the IDEA of Slenderman, but I can't actually handle reading/seeing/etc. anything with him in it. Too scary! I start thinking things are coming out of my closet and then I can't sleep. ;D

  9. We just read this and will be blogging about it (with a giveaway) tomorrow!
