4* Review: EndGame -James Frey & Nils Johnson-Shelton – Sampler

cover52139-mediumBLURB

Twelve ancient cultures were chosen millennia ago to represent humanity in Endgame, a global game that will decide the fate of humankind. Endgame has always been a possibility, but never a reality… until now. Twelve meteorites have just struck Earth, each meteorite containing a message for a Player who has been trained for this moment. At stake for the Players: saving their bloodline, as well as the fate of the world. And only one can win.

Endgame is real. Endgame is now. Endgame has begun.

My Review -1Endgame SamplerThis is a review of a sampler of the Endgame.

The blurb for this story reminded me of a fantasy computer game with its twelve players and the quests and battles they must undertake to win and save their genetic line. The characters are vivid and surreal given their young ages. The implication is that they are young faces hiding a wealth of ancient knowledge and skill, which makes them suitable contenders in the game.

An omnipotent force threatens humanity.The inference is that the winner of the Endgame will save their people presumably because they can be trusted to respect the earth. The rest will perish.

From the blurb it is the authors’ intention that this story be enacted in a real life, presumably without the violence, to enable people not to the save the world but find the treasure.

I am intrigued to read more of this apocalyptic fantasy adventure.

I received a copy of this sampler from Harper Collins UK Childrens via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
