I read Flesh Worn Stone by Burks last year and remember feeling a little disgusted by the book and yet I felt the need to go on to see what would happen next and how things would turn out. It was one of those stories that are very graphic and disturbing but it has an interesting plotline. So I decided to continue with this installment and I am actually really glad that I did.

In this installment we have Stephen who lost everything he ever held dear to the Game and the Court. Now he is continuing
I was looking forward to this sequel and started it straight after I finished the first book; however, I was disappointed.
First of all the editing and proof-reading in this book was so awful I doubt it was even checked. The mistakes were avoidable and almost seemed rushed. They were distracting and impacted the overall reading experience for me.
Secondly, the storyline was too unbelievable. I appreciate the story in the first book was extreme and much of the content horrific, but book two—which

First, read Flesh Worn Stones, then read this excellent sequel. This one picks up speed right after the first novel with Steven Alexander and Mia trying to escape The Court, the rulers of The Game. What can one man do against a secret society who ruled for 500 years. Action-packed with lots of gory scenes and cannibalism. Not for the faint of heart.

Just when you think you know what is gonna happen

John Burks has written another great novel in the Game series. This one picks up right where Flesh Worn Stone leaves off, and it is an adventure for the word GO. While I loved the premise of this story I did find that parts were really over the top. That said this was another installment that I could not put down. I like the changes that out main character goes through and the changes that he causes among other characters in the book. I found mys

This book picks up right where the first ended, with the escape of Steven, the first to escape The Game in 500 years. With him is Mia, the little girl whose mother, Rebecca, turned Steven's life into a grotesque hell by bringing him to The Game through the murder of his sons. While the novel is action packed, it was much less believable than the first. When something so secret, like The Game, seems to be known by 95 percent of the population, from shop keepers and construction workers to state ...more

Needs more thorough editting!!

I liked this and the previous book, but I feel like they both lacked detail of time. In the first book it wasn't clear how long Steven was stuck in the Cave, and in this one, it seems like the same. I did however become confused with the characters because last names would interchange. It seems like a simple pre-check before publishing. For example, the first introduction of a character was Special Agent Marcus Dillard; then later in the chapter Marcus identifies hi

It's not like my expectations were that high for this book after reading the first one in this series (Flesh Worn Stone) but the sheer amount of grammar and spelling mistakes in this book made it practically unreadable. I could overlook the obvious plot holes (how secret a society can it be if every other person the main character comes across knows about it?) but there are only so many times I could stand seeing "drug" used instead of "dragged."

I chose this rating after reading the first book and loving it. I couldn't wait to read this book afterwards in comparison I was extremely disappointed. The author could have done so much with this second book the direction he went with this book was not one I liked but as a plus I couldn't put the first book down !!!!!!

Good read!

Second book and I'm hooked. Really makes you wonder about all of the people who come up missing and with the evil in men's hearts, is it really so hard to imagine? This story will capture your attention and hold it until the very last page and you're scrambling to get the next book!! And that's exactly where I'm off to. Highly recommend these books.

Poor guy has been through hell. but he's not an idiot, he just wants to set things right and tell the world the truth.
not as violent or stomach churning as book one.
