The End Games
Martin covers familiar territory, zombies, conspiracies and post-apocalyptic romance, but does so with style in this exciting debut novel. In the rural mountains of West Virginia, 17-year-old Michael and his five-year-old brother Patrick, are forced to participate in a brutal game of survival under the direction of the mysterious Game Master. To help Patrick cope, Michael keeps up the pretense that the entire nightmare is actually a video game. But the brothers may not survive much longer. The Bellows, grotesque, flesh-eating creatures, are evolving and the others in The Game don’t always follow the rules.
