Overview

Winner of the Kerry Schooley Award 2016

When Nate sneaks into Ivor Wynne Stadium to check out the midnight games that are keeping his neighbourhood up at night, he knew something wasn't right, but he had no idea how strange, and deadly, things would be. In this thrilling young adult novel, set in gritty, post-industrial Hamilton, David Neil Lee blends the rich horror of H. P. Lovecraft with the pace of a modern mystery. Nate Silva has snuck into one of the rituals of the Resurrection Church of the Ancients, and soon his days and nights are dogged by ancient books, giant centipedes and geometric curses that bring death down upon you in the form of glowing hounds. The Midnight Games is a page-turner of a book, eerie and enthralling.
