Starters and Enders

Alright, I finished Enders last night and decided to make a post about it. No spoilers since they are not very well known.

Note: I am talking about the duology by Lissa Price. Starters and Enders. Enders is not to be confused with Ender's Game by Scott Orson Card.



This was the first duology I have ever read. It's interesting because everything has to happen faster than a trilogy yet still have enough plot to happen in two books instead of one. Or I at least found it interesting. Not sure if that was grammatically correct, but I'm moving on.

So, Starters. The description from Good Reads:

Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie. Callie's only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man.

He hires teens to rent their bodies to Enders—seniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie's head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, and going out with a senator's grandson. It feels almost like a fairy tale, until Callie discovers that her renter intends to do more than party—and that Prime Destinations' plans are more evil than Callie could ever have imagined.



Overall, I thought the books were very interesting and they definitely got captured my attention. I didn't include the description for Enders because that would spoil parts of Starters. These aren't the best books I have ever read, but I really liked them.

My rating as a series: 7.5 / 10
