Series: Endgame #1
People of Earth.Endgame has begun.
Now in this book he is being accused of copying the plot of the Hunger Games, many are unforgiving, but others rate it. One thing I noted as I looked over what Goodreads reviewers wrote is that foreign language readers who perhaps don't know the controversy and read it as a book to enjoy rated it highly, those with a colored perspective due to what is around Frey- rated it badly.
So perhaps the book is good after all-
Twelve teenagers around the world have been training for this day their entire life. On this day not only will there world shatter but the physical world will begin to crumble as well. They are called into action by twelve meteorite attacks that send them to China for their first clue. From these clues, they have to piece together where the first of three keys are located and obtain that key. Though they are teenagers, they are from lineage that has been in existence since the beginning of time. Solving the clue means encountering each other, but only one can win this Endgame. Hidden within the book are clues layered into the text; some of which will take you to the Internet, the real world, social media and into your own mind. If you, the reader, can solve the puzzle, you will be lead to a location with a hidden key that will unlock a case full of gold coins.
Endgame is like The Hunger Games (Collins, Scholastic, 2008) on steroids. It is much more of a violent book since these teens are warriors that have been trained since birth to fight and kill. Fray tells the story from each of the teens point of view, which can make the story a little disjointed if you aren’t paying attention to who is speaking at that moment. As you get further into the book, the teens personalities come out and it’s easier to tell the points of view apart. Brandi
Endgame is the puzzle of life, the reason for death. It holds the origin of all things, and the solution to the end of all things.
