Endgame: The Calling

We rated this book:


Some of them want this, most don’t. But it’s the way it’s always been. Since the beginning of time, there have been twelve players, from between the ages of thirteen and twenty—all meant to serve their line and save them from sure destruction. Their days started out normal. Then the comets struck, killing thousands—along with any chance of normalcy they might have had. Now stuck in a death game, all twelve will compete to save their line, but will everything turn out to be the way they’ve been taught it is?

Though I had a really hard time caring about the characters through the beginning of the book, overall I thought it was good. There were a couple of nudity scenes, swearing, and implied sex that could be uncomfortable. There are two big challenges in reading this book. First, to see if you are A) sadistic, B) masochistic, or C) empathetic enough to get through this mix of The Hunger Games and the 39 Clues/Vespers series. Then there is the actual challenge of seeing if you can decode all of the puzzles and things scattered throughout the book.
