Rules of the Game by James J. Frey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
And thus endeth the Endgame series, on a surprisingly short but no less all-out action-packed note. Maybe a little too short - not unlike Marie Lu's Midnight Star, the barely-over-300-page length really doesn't do this could-have-been-a-touch-more-epic apocalyptic finale justice. Unlike Frey's previous 2016 series finale in Pittacus Lore's United As One, this book, while not at all slouching or slacking in its pace, is pretty jumbled in its mad dash to the finish line. But for what it's worth, it's still every bit as Matthew Reilly-esque as ever, even with the bizarro prose and paragraph layouts forcing you to really get used to it all over again.
While I know I'm bound to enjoy what Frey gives us next - Pittacus Lore isn't done yet, not with Lorien Legacies Reborn: Generation One on tap for summer 2017 - I'm happy to now say ave atque vale to Endgame.
