THE END OF THE WORLD IS COMING. PLAY NOW. OR WE ALL LOSE.

After centuries waiting in secret, twelve unbroken bloodlines, armed with hidden knowledge and lethal training, are called to take humanity’s fate into their hands…

The first book in a game-changing new series by bestselling author, James Frey.

Bryan High School, Omaha, Nebraska: Sarah stands at her graduation ceremony – perfect SATs, a star athlete, her life ahead of her. Then a meteor wipes out half her school. But Sarah is not hurt and not surprised. Because she is the Player of the 233rd line – the Cahokian. And she knows what this means.

Endgame is here.

Juliaca, Puno, Peru: Jago walks the streets after the meteor hits. There’s looting and violence but he’s not scared. He is the Player of the 21st line – the Olmec. And he’s ready.

Endgame is here.

China, Australia, Turkey… Twelve meteors fall. Cities and people burn. The news is full of the end of the world.

But Sarah, Jago and ten others are already plotting and planning for the fight. They are the Players and Endgame is here.

All but one of them will fail. But that one will
save the world. We hope…

Written into this book is a puzzle. Solve the puzzle, and you will find the key to open a case of gold. Read the Books. Find the Clues. Solve the Puzzle. Who will Win?

Product Description:

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

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?

Review:

“A unique dystopian adventure with anchors to the real world… set to become a cultural phenomenon.” (ALA Booklist)
