REVIEW: Endgame (The Calling) - James Frey

Friday, 22 August 2014
GENRE: Fantasy
PAGES: 480
FORMAT: Harpercollins
BUY IT: Waterstones
RATING: 5 Stars

Twelve ancient cultures were chosen millennia ago to represent humanity in Endgame, a global game that will decide the fate of humankind. Endgame has always been a possibility, but never a reality...until now. Twelve meteorites have just struck Earth, each meteorite containing a message for a Player who has been trained for this moment. At stake for the Players: saving their bloodline, as well as the fate of the world. And only one can win. Endgame is real. Endgame is now. Endgame has begun. Google Niantic is building a mobile location-based augmented reality videogame inextricably tied to the books and mythology, a major prize will be tied to a puzzle in each book, and Twentieth Century Fox has bought the movie rights. 

Read the Books. Find the Clues. Solve the Puzzle. Who will Win?

An inventive and incredibly exciting new series! Following the exploits of several of the characters competing in Endgame as they battle for the opportunity to determine the fate of humanity... Each character was fascinating, they each had their own set of skills that they bought to the challenge and their personalities shone through as the stakes got higher. This will inevitably draw comparisons to the Hunger Games, but the only similarity is young people fighting for survival. It is much more than just a dysopitan novel, it's full of mystery and drama and I can't wait to read what happens next, and to see the film version. This book is going to take the world by storm!

- Gem.
