Someone is after Starters like Callie and Michael—teens with chips in their brains. They want to experiment on anyone left over from Prime Destinations—Starters who can be controlled and manipulated. With the body bank destroyed, Callie no longer has to rent herself out to creepy Enders. But Enders can still get inside her mind and make her do things she doesn't want to do...more

Starters is one of the best dystopian books ever written and so, Enders had a tough act to follow. I was also a bit worried because it had been so long since I had read Starters (I read it in Feb '12). Enders functions brilliantly as both a sequel and a series conclusion; I'm even 100% convinced that Enders is even better than Starters. I'm really going to miss reading the Starters And Enders series and I know I will be re-reading this series years from now.

Enders is...more

mild spoilers, not about the plot.

Glad it's over. I didn't like Callie this time. She was annoying, whiney and clueless. She was like one of those people in movies that announce to a killer that they know all about them and are about to call the police, all while having a gun already pointed at them.

She goes off and leaves her brother again. Michael seemed jealous that she was in contact with Blake, and in the last book it seemed like they were maybe more than friends, but near the end she say...more

Did I read that right? Could this actually be a two book series as opposed to a trilogy or saga? My love for Lissa Price just grew exponentially!

I've got high hopes for this one. Finally an author who doesn't plan on dragging out a good concept through a whole series for their money-grabbing ass. :) Can't wait!

When I read Starters for the first time, nearly two years ago, I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed it, considering I hadn't even planned on reading it. It feels like I've been waiting foreverto find out how Callie's story ends, to see who the Old Man is and what his plans are. And although this sequel was just as gripping, just as intense and fas...more

Oh man I thought the release date for this was December 2012? :((

*Update*
Ack! That cover. Eww!! I don't know if I should buy it in hardcover anymore :/

**Update**
Saw the book in our bookstore last week! Looks like it got an earlier release date.

Another lame YA dystopia series, at least this one was just a duology instead of a long series that never ended.

What's what: The Spore Wars killed everyone apart from the very old and young. Most kids left without parents and live on the streets. Evul company Prime Destinations (run by the Old Man) using and abusing vulnerable teenagers so their bodies can be temporarily taken over by the old who want to feel young again. Typical YA Mary Sue, Callie, took down Prime Destinations, and now...more

Callie is back, and things are greatly improved. She is living in Helena's house with her brother Tyler, and friend Michael is nearby, although he is still hurt by her relationship with Blake. While at the mall to buy Tyler new shoes, Callie sees Reece, another worker at Prime, but she looks a bit odd and then blows up! Callie knew that the chip installed in her when she was working at being a vehicle for "ender" tourists still gave her trouble, but since she is still hearing the Old Man in her...more

This novel pulled me in and kept my attention to the very last page. Sequels are perhaps the hardest novels to write in a trilogy, but Price did an amazing job with Enders and I actually enjoyed in more than the first book in the series, Starters. I felt that there was a lot more action in this novel, and it kept me guessing as it unfolded. The fact that I was better able to connect with the characters in this sequel was also helpful,...more

Also eins vorweg. „Enders“ hatte bei mir definitiv keinen einfachen Start. Ich hatte wirklich an seinem Vorgänger „Starters“ auszusetzen und dem Buch auch gerade einmal drei Sterne gegeben, was vor allem an der zweiten Hälfte des Buches und dem Ende lag. Daher waren meine Erwartungen an „Enders“ ziemlich gering bzw. ich dachte mir bereits, dass mich der Anfang wieder nicht fesselnd würde, doch weit gefehlt! Dieser Teil hat mich wirklich überrascht … und das durchweg positiv!

„Enders“ schaffte es...more

Eccomi qui che vi parlo di Enders. Devo dire parecchie cose su questo libro. Prima di tutto l'ho trovato più appassionante del primo capitolo, molto di più! Almeno per me...
Bello, ricco d'azione, e adoro la protagonista Callie.
L'unica cosa di questa saga, che essendo una duologia più varie novelle, conclusa, non mi ha soddisfatta del tutto, è la descrizione e la caratterizzazione dei personaggi secondari. Ma anche dei sentimenti.
Ecco, io in un libro voglio un po' di tutto: azione, colpi di scena...more

*Inhalt:*
(Bitte nur lesen wenn man bereits den ersten Teil „Starters“ kennt!!!)
Die Body Bank ist zerstört, aber der Old Man ist entkommen und hat Zugriff auf Callies Chip. Für sie ist daher der Kampf noch lange nicht zu Ende und sie muss Tyler und Michael beschützen. Dann stellt Callie fest, dass der Old Man nicht der Einzige ist, der an der Chiptechnologie Interesse hat.

*Meinung:*
Also ich möchte erst noch einmal darauf hinweisen, dass man die Bücher unbedingt in der richtigen...more

Dieses Buch war unglaublich :) Ich habe den ersten Teil gelesen und dachte damals, naja sehr gute Story aber die immer wiederkehrenden Grundsatzdiskussionen haben irgendwie gestört. Dies war in Enders völlig beseitigt. Grundsatzdiskussionen? Fehlanzeige, allenfalls mal klein am Rande zu erahnen. Der Schwerpunkt lag diesmal auf der eigentlichen Handlung, was das Buch auch direkt spannender machte. Die zweite Hälfte war dabei auch regelrecht turbulent, sodass ich nicht mehr aufhören konnte zu lese...more

ENDERS by Lissa Price is the phenomenal sequel to STARTERS, and well worth the wait. Even though it’s been nearly two years since STARTERS was released, the beginning of ENDERS immediately pulls the reader back into Callie’s dangerous world. Hang on tight – the plot is fast-paced with unpredictable twists and turns and a chilling antagonist who hides behind many faces. As a mom and a middle school library volunteer, I highly recommend both STARTERS and ENDERS – these stories have broad appeal to...more

To all of the 'reviewers' posting star reviews without reading the book.

WHY THE HELL ARE YOU RATING IT.

Goddamn it, people don't understand what their actions do on averaged sites like these.

This book is/was worth the wait. I couldn't understand why Lissa Price (her publishers doing, I imagine) kept pushing out the release date. However, now that I have finished reading this literary cocktail I'm so glad I did. I'm rather sad that it's over as most books are when you've finished them. This book left me thinking about it far past the day I finished and I realized I grew quite attached...

The story picks up with the take down of Prime and then continues toward taking down the Old Man....more

PROS
-Bonus Content: With the pre order, I got cards, bookmarks, a pin, a handwritten letter, a signed copy, and an amazing time. I wholly don't regret the extra wait, even though I died a bit every day haha!
-Twists: Lissa Price never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever fails to make your jaw drop. I had to reread a certain sequence about twelve times to make sure I wasn't hallucinating. It totally turned everything I read upside down and made my adrenals go nuts. In other words, Lissa Price conv...more

Der Inhalt:

Nachdem Callie die Body Bank zerschlagen hat, ist der Old Man nun auf der Flucht. Aber Callie kann trotzdem nicht in Frieden leben, denn der Old Man hat Zugriff auf ihren Chip nimmt so Kontakt mit ihr auf. Als er dann auch noch anfängt ihre Familie zu bedrohen, gibt sich Callie geschlagen und will sich dem Old Man ausliefern. Allerdings kommt sie nie da an, denn sie wird zuvor von jemand anderem gefunden.

Meine Meinung:

Auch wenn der erste Teil schon etwas länger her ist und ich nicht m...more

Das Cover:
Wie auch auf dem ‘Starters’ Cover ist der Umriss einer Frau zu sehen. Diesmal sind die Farben jedoch nicht so dunkel, sondern sehr hell, nur die Umrisse sind grau. Nimmt man den Schutzumschlag ab, ist die Hardcover metallic-grau, passend zum ersten Teil, der in metallic-blau war.

Die Geschichte:
Nachdem es die Body Bank sowie Prime Destinations nicht mehr gibt, fühlt sich Callie freier als sonst. Doch stellt sie sich die Frage, wie es sein kann, dass die Stimme ihres Vaters in ihrem Kopf...more

Since it had been over a year since I read the first book in this set, Starters, I decided to do a re-read before jumping into Enders so I wouldn't have any problems connecting all the little pieces. However, the author did a good amount of recapping at the beginning so I probably would have been fine without the re-read but it got me back into the world and mindset so I'm still glad I did.

Callie, Tyler, and Michael are finally free from Prime Destination and are living like normal claimed Start...more

Also mir gefällt die deutsche Version immer besser, besonders, da ich das englische Original immer weniger mag. Mir sieht das einfach zu surreal aus. Das nimmt dem Roman irgendwo den Realitätsanspruch. Die deutsche Version mit der Farbänderung gefällt mir dagegen sehr gut. Die Titel funktionieren als Dilogie natürlich auch perfekt, wobei ich es schade finde, dass es im ersten Band zwar wirklich um die Starters ging, im zweiten allerdings auch und nicht wie der Titel vermuten ließe...more

Mein Fazit:
"Starters" fand ich zwar besser, aber "Enders" ist trotzdem absolut lesenswert! Überraschende Wendungen sorgen für Spannung, der "Jäger werden zu Gejagten - Plot" ist actiongeladen und sehr rasant geschrieben und obendrein werden noch gesellschaftliche Themen angeschnitten (Schönheitswahn und -operationen, Machtgier, Geldgier, ...). Mir hat emotionale Spannung gefehlt, weil die Figurentiefe nicht vorhanden ist. Aber insgesamt ist es Lesegenuss pur! Und die Dilogie kommt natürlich auf...more

This was a wonderfully written book! The minor plot twists in the beginning escalated to bigger and greater plot twists closer to the end. Lissa Price wrote a very original, suspenseful science-fiction book. The original plot about the future made this book and the first book in this series, "Starters," stand out from the pack. The small amount of romance present in this book did not overwhelm the plot and did not become the main focus like it does in many science-fiction books these days; howev...more

I picked up Starters because I liked the name of the main character. Upon reading it, I realized how amazing the story was. I fell in love with Callie and the mystery and romance of it all. The twist at the end made me cry and beg for more. The wait for Enders was painful. I was checking the bookstores weekly to make sure I didn't miss it. Pleasant surprise when I saw it out on Jan 1st. I got it and was surprised how small it was. I didn't think it'd be enough but it was perfect. Loved every sec...more

A fitting end to the Starters series (short series) I loved it, it was as much a fast paced, pulse pounding read as Starters was. With several completeky unexpected twists that I'd no idea we're coming! Starters and Enders are both such quick fun reads, a faster reader than I could undoubtedly read both of them in the same day. They're very hard to put down once you begin!

I'm looking forward to reading whatever else Price has up her sleeve!
Ellie
ASDFLGHKSAKJ I am so glad I bought Starters and Enders together so I wouldn't have to sit and wait in anticipation until I can grab my hands on it. This book was so exciting the lack of proper lighting didn't even stop me from reading! Lissa Price is a genius and Starters has to be one of my favourite dystopia book in recent history.

Sandra
I got an ARC of this beauty, and I was the happiest girl in the world. I loved Starters to death and to read this before its publication was fantastic. Seriously, I've never been so excited before. So, I'll just say: READ THIS BOOK.

Proper review to come soon.
Gimme gimme book three! (There must be one. I'm hoping!)

Lissa Price’s debut novel STARTERS is an award-winning, international bestseller published in over thirty countries. Dean Koontz called this YA futuristic thriller “a smart, swift, inventive, altogether gripping story.” The LA Times said it is “Dystopian science-fiction at its best,” and “Readers who have been waiting for a worthy successor to ‘The Hunger Games’ will find it here.”
