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.

T. Michael Martin’s debut novel is a transcendent thriller filled with electrifying action, searing emotional insight, and unexpected romance.
This sounds perfect. Well, at least for me. First off, the first two lines in the synopsis: complete and utter perfection. Really. You managed to mention both Halloween, and the apocalypse. It can't get any better than that. Secondly, there's a game. Where you battle monsters. In the apocalypse. Yet again, perfection. The monsters in the game are beginning to evolve? PER-FREAKING-FECTION. The 'unexpected romance' bit scares me just a little bit, because I'm not entirely sure the apocalypse is an appropriate time for romantic tension, but still, I need to get an ARC of this one, and ASAP.

Also, if you have an ARC of this, why, it just so happens I'm looking for a new best friend! Totally a coincidence.
See? Totally legit.

What are you waiting on?
