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.

    Story
    "Boring and uninteresting characters"

    All of the characters in the book were 1 dimensional unredeemable characters. The plot was hacky and played out. I didn't know who to root for because I hated all the characters. The main character Sarah was so in love with her bf and yet 5 minutes later is completely in love with another dude with a "grill" in his teeth a few minutes later. If all the characters died at the end of the book I would have felt better about the story.

    "Reader kinda wrecked it"

    Great story, but why hire a reader with a lisp? So annoying. Poor Sarah was also voiced as some kind of a wimpy waif, which she clearly is not.

    Story
    "Classic Teen Apocalyptic Adventure"

    I personally thought the narration lacked much emotion but was very clear and easy to follow.
    All the characters were well developed and youll understand and like each of them.
    The story follows some very classic action and love story tropes but they aren't forced and you'll be very engaged even if you see them coming

    "Pretty Darn Good"

    WHAT DID YOU THINK OVERALL?
    I thought this book was pretty good. I don't like James Frey, but I really enjoyed this book.

    WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE BOOK?
    I loved how James Frey blended the different stories to make on large narrative. It was fascinating, the kind of book that you can keep on thinking about after you finish it. Also, James Frey set it up so that you can root for your favorite character. I liked that.

    HOW DID YOU LIKE IT AS AN AUDIO BOOK?
    I did not like it entirely. Every few chapters you would be subject to 5 straight minutes of internet links due to the big puzzle. But I loved the reader.

    ANY CRITICS?
    It was obvious throughout the book that James Frey was trying to show how smart he was. Its annoying. But not a bigy.

    Story
    "Favorite book and narrator"

    I listened this audio book two years ago and forgot completely about it. For some reason I was reminded of the story but couldn't remember name or the title or anything to find it. After searching for over 6 months, I finally stumbled upon it! I'm so happy to sink back into this amazing story. Each character is so complete and interesting. I love the accents provided by the narrator. He brings them to life and gives them each a distinct voice and personality that helps you keep up with the 13 main characters. It's by far my favorite audiobook I've ever bought. This story is one I will happily revisit time and time again. I can't wait for the other novels!

    "waste of time"
    Would you try another book from James Frey and/or Sunil Malhotra?

    No, the book didn't interest or exite me.....most books put the hook into in the first two chapters....this book put me to sleep!
