Waiting on: Game by Barry Lyga

Billy grinned. “Oh, New York,” he whispered. “We’re gonna have so much fun.”

I Hunt Killers introduced the world to Jazz, the son of history’s most infamous serial killer, Billy Dent.

In an effort to prove murder didn’t run in the family, Jazz teamed with the police in the small town of Lobo’s Nod to solve a deadly case. And now, when a determined New York City detective comes knocking on Jazz’s door asking for help, he can’t say no. The Hat-Dog Killer has the Big Apple–and its police force–running scared. So Jazz and his girlfriend, Connie, hop on a plane to the big city and get swept up in a killer’s murderous game.

I absolutely flat out fell in morbid, murderous love with I Hunt Killers a few months back. (Don't believe me? Let me regale you in my obsession.) Weird, right? Who loves stories about death and serial killers? This weirdo right here. But it's okay, because it's fiction, guys. Barry Lyga has a mesmerizing style of writing that makes you make the "HOLY FFFFFFFUUUUU" face but also keep turning the pages because WHO WILL DIE NEXT?

And I'd be lying if the title of this book didn't remind me a little bit of Jigsaw.

Uh, yeah. Sweet dreams.

Game will be released April 2013 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

  2. I can't wait for this either! I have to share your love for these books- they creep me out like none other, but at the same time I can't stop reading!

  3. Agreed, this one is sure to rock! I Hunt Killers was great.

  4. I hate you for posting that picture. UGH. Hahahaha.

  5. Oh, just great! I was under the impression that this was a standalone, and now I'm really worried because I have to rush to get to this one so that I can share in all it's morbidly awesome glory with everyone to then join in our ravenous joy over the sequel!

  6. This is a great cover! And I love that it matches I Hunt Killers. It's sure to be good.

  7. So to continue with the creepy factor... I literally JUST looked this book up Monday night to feature as my WonW today but the summary wasn't on GR. And then I thought, "Hmmm, I wonder if Jen knows about this on yet" and then totally forgot to ask you. Epic fail on my part, but cannot WAIT for this one to come out!

  8. THAT PICTURE!IT IS SO CREEPY! I would be awake for days. I will have to stick to reading reviews of this series and leave the creepy books to the brave readers!
