This book surprised me so much. I love zombie novels. But I also love dark, literary stories. And I love stories about relationships. And this was all 3! Michael and his little brother Patrick are two of the few survivors after the zombie apocalypse hits. They travel the backwoods and small towns of West Virginia, looking for others like them. Looking for rescue. But most importantly, Michael is trying to keep 5-yr-old Patrick's innocence intact. And after they do find other survivors, Michael starts to realize that innocence just might not exist anymore. Love, love, love, love, love...seriously. READ IT YOU GUYS!

I picked up The End Games at my local Barnes and Noble and once I started reading, it was a breeze to finish.  I usually have trouble sticking with a book without a break for a few days in between, but with the End Games I genuinely looked forward to going to bed each night, knowing a chapter or three of gripping zombie adventure was waiting for me.   It is truly rare to find a zombie story with such depth of character and polished story.  Unlike most zombie tales, which draw their drama from a large band of survivors, meant to serve mostly as zed food, The End Games hyper focuses on its main character Michael, giving us a vivid picture of his inner workings throughout the course of the book.  And though the band of survivors is smaller than in other zombie stories, each and every character serves a real purpose and none are expendable (though some, of course, are expended). I'm tempted to write a short synopsis of the plot, but that's already done for you on the book's jacket, and I recommend that you start the book knowing only what's provided.  The less you know, the more surprises await you, and friend, there are a lot of surprises!  And there is not one, not two, but THREE fantastic villains in this story that push Michael and his brother deeper into dangerous territory. Finally, this is a great read for any age, but I most certainly recommend it for young adults.  This is not simply because it's a young adult novel, but because the messages and themes in this book are so important for a young person to consume and understand.  Yes, it is a very cool ass zombie book that makes you grip the cover in suspense and scream at the pages.  But you'll also be reading a survival tale about honesty, loyalty, love for others, and a searching for something greater.  And that is what sets this book apart from most any other book in recent memory and kept me going to bed early each night for another dose of End Games goodness.

Slightly difficult to get into, but once you get hooked, you REALLY get hooked. An intense read for those looking for the post-apocalyptic zombie book for teens. Try surviving this arena, Katniss!

Not a great book. Over used idea of zombies and the end of the world. Some of the twists in this book go unexplained and I really fought to even finish the book.

This was a great book. It was everything I look for in a book.  Fun, interesting, and likable characters that you never give up on and villains you love to hate.  I didn't want to put  it down once I started. I enjoy zombie stories and this one is so much fun. I recommend this book to everyone who likes a good story. You won't be disappointed.
