The riveting conclusion to the sci-fi thriller STARTERS!

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 -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. Like hurt someone she loves. Having the chip removed could save her life – but it could also silence the voice in her head that might belong to her father. Callie has flashes of her ex-renter Helena’s memories, too . . . and the Old Man is back, filling her with fear. Who is real and who is masquerading in a teen body?

My Review

Last year, when I had the pleasure of reading Starters, I just couldn’t wait to get my grubby hands on the next book – it truly did not disappoint! I was chilled, thrilled and seriously excited at the action packed events unfolding in front of my eyes!

It’s quite a pacy read, which really worked well in keeping you gripped and always guessing. I loved being surprised at every corner and I sat riveted at those super tense action scenes. Ever twisting and turning this storyline is seriously moreish!

There was some serious character development on Callie’s part and I really enjoyed watching her grow, kick ass and work things out. I also really liked her chemistry with some of the secondary characters.

In this instalment we see Callie face her toughest challenges yet…she uncovers some seriously big shockers and also discovers that their chips can be lethal. She fights her way through everything hurled at her and the journey is seriously rocky!

The conclusion was an action packed battle of epicness! I actually wasn’t expecting it but really I couldn’t of asked for any better. I don’t know if there will ever be another book, but there certainly could be….*wink*

Enders is an action packed thrill ride that is jam packed with some seriously shocking revelations! I sat in awe at the edge of my seat at those surprising moments that bowled me over – an all round winner!

4.5 / 5 Stars!
