Publisher's Summary

Twelve thousand years ago, they came. They descended from the sky amid smoke and fire, and created humanity and gave us rules to live by. They needed gold and they built our earliest civilizations to mine it for them. When they had what they needed, they left. But before they left, they told us someday they would come back, and when they did, a game would be played. A game that would determine our future.

This is Endgame.

For ten thousand years the lines have existed in secret. The 12 original lines of humanity. Each had to have a Player prepared at all times. They have trained generation after generation after generation. In weapons, languages, history, tactics, disguise, assassination. Together the Players are everything: strong, kind, ruthless, loyal, smart, stupid, ugly, lustful, mean, fickle, beautiful, calculating, lazy, exuberant, weak. They are good and evil. Like you. Like all.

This is Endgame.

When the game starts, the Players will have to find three keys. The keys are somewhere on Earth. The only rule of their Endgame is that there are no rules. Whoever finds the keys first wins the game. Endgame: The Calling is about the hunt for the first key. And just as it tells the story of the hunt for a hidden key, written into the book is a puzzle. It invites readers to play their own Endgame and to try to solve the puzzle. Whoever does will open a case filled with gold. Alongside the puzzle will be a revolutionary mobile game built by Google's Niantic Labs that will allow you to play a real-world version of Endgame where you can join one of the lines and do battle with people around you.

Will exuberance beat strength? Stupidity top kindness? Laziness thwart beauty? Will the winner be good or evil? There is only one way to find out.

Play.

Survive.

Solve.

People of Earth.

Endgame has begun.

Not all Endgame Contest clues are available in audio book format. A print copy or electronic book is required to access all clues necessary to solve the Endgame Contest puzzle.

Loved it

This is like the first book of hunger games but on steroids! Sprinkle some of that "I am number four" series flare and you'll have endgame.
The reader too is fantastic.

12 tribes decide fate of humanity

The book offers up a plausible set of events where normal people through out the world are well trained killers who are fighting for the lives of family and friends. The book takes you on a race to find hidden artifacts that will decide the fate of humanity. It shows the instant survival is on the line how people will act and do anything possible to preserve their futures. Great read.

it's been quiet a few years where a good story had me hooked from the start. I'm so glad I gave this book a read. I love the plot and even better it's a series. I'm so excited to start sky key

Great Story!

The book was awesome! The narrator could have been better, but accents can be hard to mimic sometimes. Other than that, great character and world building throughout the story.

The story

There’s no issues with the performance of the book, but after 8 chapters I just couldn’t keep going. I definitely wasted my money on this one 😥

Interesting story

I did like the story but presentation was a bit strange, would help to say the chapters in the processes so you know where you are. Other than that. The story is good

Interesting story, but not audio book material.

It was a good story. However, in the paper book there must be graphs, charts, and data at the beginning of some chapters. This means, you end up listening to the narrator just read aloud different numbers and what not at the beginning of some chapters. In one instance, I remember skipping through at least a couple minutes of just numbers. So I would recommend the book, really an interesting story, but definitely do a paper edition so you can see what they are ineffectively trying to relate.
