For this week’s Taste of Tuesday, we have the new release from James Frey & Nils Johnson-Shelton, called Endgame: The Calling. I have to say that having been to a few events so far this fall that have referenced this book, consider me intrigued! It sounds like a cross between The Hunger Games, and The Maze Runner, which have both clearly done spectacularly well (novel and movie wise).
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.
Google Niantic is building a mobile location-based augmented reality videogame inextricably tied to the books and mythology, a major prize will be tied to a puzzle in each book, and Twentieth Century Fox has bought the movie rights.
Read the Books. Find the Clues. Solve the Puzzle. Who will Win?
