Endgame: The Calling

Endgame Cover

     Before I was sure wether I wanted to read this book, I was going through goodreads comments, and a lot of them accused this book of being a copy of The Hunger Games. This is one thing this book isn’t. In The Hunger Games, people are randomly chosen to fight to the death as a punishment for District 13 revolting, and for the amusement of the countries richest people. In Endgame, people are chosen by their family/members of their “blood line” to fight to the death for three keys that will allow their line to be enlightened. Big difference. Also, if Endgame is a copy of any book, it is the 39 clues series.

One thing I really like about the book is that it had believable characters. Even the people who seemed dimensionally evil, like An, ended up being more complex. I this was caused by the changing of perspectives.

I liked how the author changed the scene, it was really easy to keep track of because of the symbols at the top of the chapter notating who was in it.

With the symbols, the puzzles between the chapters were probably the coolest part of the entire book. I only took the time to solve the first few, but they were very fun.

All in all, I really liked the book, and would rate it four stars.
