    From what I ve been incredibly fortunate to read so far, I am able to say that it looks like 2013 is shaping up to be the year of absolutely excellent debut novels, and T Michael Martin s The End Games is certainly no exception to that high standard of excellence Filled with chilling creatures, wonderful characters and heartwarming and at times heart breaking relationships, and a surprising sense of poignancy similar to that of Courtney Summer s This is Not a Test, The End Games is a novel th From what I ve been incredibly fortunate to read so far, I am able to say that it looks like 2013 is shaping up to be the year of absolutely excellent debut novels, and T Michael Martin s The End Games is certainly no exception to that high standard of excellence Filled...
