Endgame - The Calling is the first in James Frey's new series set to be published through Harper Collins. Fox has already purchased the movie rights for this YA novel, and, while details are forthcoming, it has been revealed that Google was involved in the deal. The plot for Endgame is being kept under wraps, although it was described as Hunger Games-like in tone by several sources.
The book is set be published on October 7, 2014. There will be three books in the series along with 3 e-book novellas.
OnEarth, there are 12 bloodlines, or races. Each bloodline has a champion between the ages of 13 and 20 who is trained as a warrior and is always ready to do battle. When they turn 20, the teen warrior behind them gets promoted. This has been the case for hundreds of years, but no one remembers why — they’re always ready for some sort of battle to take place, but it never does. But the tradition continues. And then one day they’re called to fight, and all the bloodlines but the winners will be exterminated. They’re fighting to be the last race.Edit
