Αυτό το βιβλίο μού προκάλεσε ανάμεικτα συναισθήματα και αντιδράσεις:
Ενδιαφέρον φυσικά στην αρχή, αν και αυτό οφειλόταν στο τέλος του προηγούμενου βιβλίου.
Βαρεμάρα στη συνέχεια, στα σημεία που οι ιστορίες κάποιων Παικτών ξεχείλωναν υπερβολικά.
Πες τα πιο γρήγορα, γαμώτο!
Άφηνα το βιβλίο κάτω, αλλά μετά από λίγο έπιανα τον εαυτό μου να θέλει να συνεχίσει την ανάγνωση γιατί υπήρχαν και εκείνες οι ιστορίες των αγαπημένων μου Παικτών που ανυπομονούσα να συνεχίσω!
Με κούρασαν και με μπέρδεψαν τα σημεία

Dude. This book, I swear. It takes on this huge plot and follows multiple characters and somehow every single part manages to be intricate and interesting. Even characters I found somewhat dull in the first book are made awesome here.

The action though, it is non stop, but in the best way possible. And when there's a break in the action, my mind is constantly blown by the revelations. You never have a clue what's going to happen next because it breaks whatever expectations you have.

Esto es más bien un 3,5 porque el final levanta bastante el ritmo un poco lento y tedioso que venía llevando el libro. Siento que Sky Key bajó el nivel si lo comparamos con Endgame: The Calling, realmente. El primer libro me dejó pensando en que toda la trilogía tendría un ritmo trepidante, lleno de peleas y de encuentros muy sangrientos entre los diferentes Jugadores, pero en Sky Key nos encontramos con Jugadores que están repartidos por todos los rincones del planeta y que se encuentran y enfr ...more

Endgame es fantástico y no decepciona.

Una historia llena de acción que sigue la linea de su antecesora a un ritmo incluso mejor, los personajes se van profundizando y el meollo del asunto se va haciendo más complejo, preparándonos para un final lleno de suspenso e intriga, imperdible.

Keine Ahnung was mich geritten hat, dass ich diese Reihe weiterlesen wollte. Ich war ja schon kein großer Fan des ersten Buches, aber dort hatte mich gerade der Anfang noch ein wenig gepackt und irgendwie wollte ich dann vermutlich schon wissen, was es mit dem gesamten Spiel auf sich hat.

Bis zur Hälfte des Buches habe ich ausgehalten und das vermutlich nur, weil es sich recht flüssig lesen lässt. Der Rest interessiert mich einfach nicht mehr.
Die Charaktere berühren mich immer noch nicht

Wow! Just... wow! 😮
This book was like no other. I just can't believe how original this story is. I envy the authors for their imagination.
But what's the most amazing thing is how captivated I was. 500 pages of pure attraction. This book was like a magnet for me. If the first book in the series was awesome, I have no words for this one. It was like a bomb full of ideas that exploded in my mind. It was pure magic.
Little Alice... please stay alive in the third book.

You know you have enjoyed a book when you have spent the afternoon ploughing through it, without even pausing to update your progress on Goodreads. Such a dynamic, intense, and unique read and an insanely good second instalment to the Endgame series! Full review to come.

Blog review:

Sky key was a overall good book. I didn't really like it that much, but i was a good second book in the trilogy. Just like Endgame, the writing style of James Frey didn't work for me. The different languages and too much details were annoying. I got bored really quick. Though it is a good book, with a good story were you want to know more.

Ok this book ended in a cliffhanger as every other second book in a trilogy does , but it was a fun trip, so fast paced and dynamic... You will not get bored reading this book. I cannot wait till the next book !!

Δεν μπορώ να πω ότι μου άρεσε. Μάλλον με απογοήτευσε.
Οι παίχτες που έχουν μείνει συνεχίζουν να "παίζουν" , δημιουργούνται καινούριες συμμαχίες και φυσικά πεθαίνουν μερικοί ακόμη μέχρι να βρεθεί και το δεύτερο κλειδί και να τελειώσει το δεύτερο βιβλίο της τριλογίας.
Λοιπόν. Βαρέθηκα να διαβάζω για τις υπερφυσικές ικανότητες των παιχτών. Έλεος δηλαδή, δώδεκα ανήλικοι ήταν, όσο και να έχουν εκπαιδευτεί μου είναι αδύνατον να δεχτώ ότι ελέγχουν τον πόνο, γνωρίζουν τα πάντα (από τις αρχαίες θρησκείες

The Calling: 5 stars.
Sky Key: 4 stars.
Rules of the Game: 3 stars.

Great well-written book, such a shame we have to wait another year for part three!

What is good about the book in comparison to other young adult books is that it continuous with the game. In books like the hunger games or the maze runner the game stops after book one and there is a mutual enemy that they have to fight. That is not the case here because everybody is anybody's enemy. That makes the book also really interesting, it is

"EndGame, A Chama" é um dos livros a que dei 5 estrelas, o primeiro volume desta trilogia. Lembro-me que fora um livro que me deixou em pulgas, pela originalidade da trama, de como a história era contada em diferentes perspectiva, de ser um livro cheio de acção.
Assim que saiu o segundo volume em Portugal, coisa que não estava à espera e passado uns bons longos meses, toda a alegria que o primeiro volume me trouxe tinha-se perdido um pouco, ao longo do tempo e andei a evitar de ler o segundo volu

I should probably start worrying. I consider sci-fi and dystopias to be two of my favourite genres but somehow I always end up loving the first book and being deathly bored of the second one. And yep, you've guessed it, not even going to bother with the last one. Have I ever finished any trilogy of this kind? Okay yes, Hunger Games, but I'm pretty sure I dropped everything else or took 2 years to finish them.

Anyway, my issue with this was... everything really. Everything I found fascinating in

Długo zwlekałam z przeczytaniem tej książki, a teraz, kiedy lekturę mam już za sobą, kompletnie nie potrafię zrozumieć, dlaczego tak długo czekać musiała na moją uwagę, bo Klucz Niebios spełnił wszystkie moje oczekiwania. Pierwszy tom oczywiście przypadł mi do gustu, ale miałam względem niego kilka zastrzeżeń. Natomiast jego kontynuacja okazała się idealna.

,,Nie ma ozdrowienia bez ran. Nie ma oczyszczenia bez brudu. Nie ma przebaczenia bez śmierci."

Akcja Klucza Niebios pędzi na łeb na szyj
The sequel to The Calling is written in the same bizarre style as its predecessor - it still feels like a slightly-less-metaphorical Shatter Me, but the action is still as insanely Matthew Reilly-like as ever. Sure, a lot of storyline details and tropes feel like they were also recycled from The Lorien Legacies, but that doesn't ruin the enjoyment at all for me. I'm fully invested in this trilogy - I need to finish it now.

"Sarah løber, så hurtigt hun kan. Hun løber, og hun tænker ikke på hans død.
Endnu en død..."

Denne bog var endnu mere actionpræget og nervepirrende end den første bog i serien.
Spillet er nu for alvor gået igang og det kræver, at de allesammen skal oppe sig og kæmpe endnu hårdere for succes, end de hidtil har gjort.

På trods af en historie i et utroligt højt tempo, formår forfatterne på magisk vis stadig at holde handlingen klar og detaljeret. Måske endda en smule (læs: meget) for detaljeret ti

I don't know what to say. I. Just. Don't. Know.
Am I so easy to impress or is it the book? I don't know but I'm sure that this book is better than The Calling. It's been some time since I read a book like this one and I regret not reading it sooner because there was time when I was looking for reads like this one where everybody kills everybody and where friends are enemies as well and all that.
Now I read almost every book in the fantasy genre hoping to find something like that. I'm not really

I couldn't rate it any lower than 5 stars. This book has everything that a good book needs: intriguing plot, unique characters, shocking twists. It's so so good. Especially for its story, everything about Endgame is interesting. I also reckon that this book is better than the first one, maybe because we have already adapted to this 'reality'. Definitely an exciting and surprising reading, I totally recommend it!!
This book was a fast paced, action packed sequel that didn't disappoint.

characters I didn't like took up way too many chapters.
Decisions were pretty weak at points. An example would be in the last forty pages.

What I liked:
character development for characters I hated in the calling. They are now my favourites.
The pace was great.
People I hate are dead which is nice.
People I love are still alive.

Last thoughts?
I loved it overall and can't wait for the ending of this series!

Nachdem ich den ersten Band der "Endgame"-Trilogie in kürzester Zeit verschlungen habe, hatte ich sehr hohe Erwartungen an den zweiten Band "Die Hoffnung" und habe auch diesen innerhalb weniger Stunden ausgelesen, weil ich unbedingt wissen wollte, wie es mit den Spielern weiter geht. Zum Glück wurde ich dabei nicht enttäuscht, denn der zweite Band ist mindestens genauso gut wie "Die Auserwählten".

Man muss zwar sagen, dass James Freys Schreibstil nach wie vor nicht gerade das Gelbe vom Ei ist und

Bien meilleur que le premier, on est vraiment au pleins coeur de l'action! La tension est palpable, les personnages sont plus vifs que jamais. Les créateurs sont plus cruels que jamais et vraiment sans considération pour l'homme. On en apprend d'ailleurs un peu plus sur eux.
Il y encore plus de morts, c'est endgame: ce qui sera, sera. Maintenant il ne me reste plus qu'à écrire ma chronique!

Încă de la începutul acestui Joc final, când cei 12 meteoriți au lovit Pământul, alegându-și în sfârșit Jucătorii, scriitura simplă și energică a autorilor James Frey și Nils Johnson-Shelton a reușit să mă fascineze, creionând o lume distopică năucitoare, într-un mod cât se poate de inedit. Deși mă așteptam la ceva explozibil, nu eram chiar atât de sigură că cel de-al doilea volum al trilogiei o să mă poată surprinde și mai mult decât a făcut-o cel anterior.

Das weltweite Phänomen ENDGAME geht mti dem Roman ENDGAME. Die Hoffnung in eine zweite erfolgreiche Runde. Ring frei. Nachdem ich mit dem Auftaktroman der Trilogie deutliche Startschwierigkeiten gehabt habe, macht dieser zweite Roman einiges besser. Die unendlich langen Charaktervorstellungen aus Roman eins sind hier logischerweise weggefallen, da man die Protagonisten, anfangs noch zu zwölft, mittlerweile alle sehr gut kennengelernt hat. Außerdem wurde im Verlauf des ersten Romans fleißig ausge ...more
