Book Review: Enders by Lissa Price

You might recall how much I enjoyed STARTERS, and ENDERS is just as entertaining, fast-paced and twisty.

ENDERS focuses on the Starters who joined up with Prime Destinations and got the chip in their heads. They are now called Metals (probably a more apt title for this installment than Enders, if you ask me), and the head of the now destroyed Prime Destinations is rounding them up and controlling them remotely.

Callie is especially prized because she is the only one of the Metals who has overcome her no-kill programming, and she's also a talented sharp-shooter. She hears the icky voice of the Old Man in her head and he threatens to kill her younger brother if she doesn't cooperate with him. But just as she surrenders herself, a competitor to the old man rescues her as thus begins an epic battle of technology and wills.

What I especially loved about ENDERS was how unpredictable it was. I had no idea where the plot was going and I was genuinely shocked by many of the developments and reveals. The end was satisfying, but made me wish that there were going to be more books in this series.

ENDERS is available in hardcover now. Find out more about it at the author's website.
