Over at Kirkus: The End Games by T. Michael Martin

It’s Friday, which means we are over at Kirkus! Today, Thea reviews the highly anticipated apocalyptic zombie novel The End Games by T. Michael Martin…

The End Games

Unfortunately, it was a big fat miss on so many levels, from the writing to the characters to the plotting. Go HERE to check it out (and if you’re also feeling bummed out by this zombie fail, check out Thea’s list of unexpected zombie novels that might help fill the void).

    Dang! Can we at least give it an applause for a great cover? Seriously. It’s an awesome cover. Guess this proves that you can’t judge a book by its cover. Thanks for saving me from this zombie.

    That was a great review on Kirkus! I’m pleased that some people are finally getting fed up with slangy, faky teen voice (which all agents are still desperately searching for).

    One thing though. Is it only me who notices a slight resemblance to Ender’s Game (besides the very similar title)? Young hero fights bellows (buggers), who’re poised to take over the world (universe), by using the techniques of a computer game, but they keep evolving and getting better until, finally, young hero defeats them.

    It’s unfortunate that this did not meet expectations. The cover is quite creepy actually, and I was hoping that the content matched this positively.
