I love getting ARC's(advanced readers copies) of books. It is one of the best perks of being a reviewer. Nary Lyga's Game - I Hunt Killers 2 is my most anticipated book in 2013 and it did not let down. The intro below from the author sets a tone and the book is amazing. I Hunt Killers was my top pick of 176 reads in 2012 and Game is even better. This book is not due out until mid April so I cannot post a review yet. A quick comparison, when I finished I Hunt Killers it felt like base jumping, I was falling but excited about where things were going. The end of Game was like being thrown off a mountain, while screaming on the way down, no idea where or how we're going to stop. But if you have not read I Hunt Killers go do so so you are ready when this one comes out! You will not be disappointed.  

Dear Early Reader,

So, here we are - a year later and it's time to play again.

This time, the stakes are higher, the crimes more gruesome.
The body count…well, you'll see.

When I Hunt Killers first hit shelves, I didn't know what to
expect.  The outpouring of enthusiastic reviews from early
readers such as you was humbling and overwhelming, and
played no small part in the success of that book.  I hope
you'll be just as happy with Game.  I know I am!

I also hope you'll want to tell everyone about the book,
but please - be careful.  Don't let slip the many twists and
surprises that lurk within.  Keep them under wraps, and let
people discover them on their own.

After all, Billy Dent doesn't like spoilers.

And you wouldn't want to upset him, now, would you?
