Twelve ancient lines.

At stake for the Players: not only their lives but the fate of the world.
At stake for the readers: the chance to participate in a real–world interactive puzzle.
Endgame, written by James Frey and Nils Johnson–Shelton, is a revolutionary, fully integrated, multimedia book and gaming experience that invites its audience to join twelve Players in a worldwide, puzzle–based hunt for three hidden keys and the ultimate prize. The world of Endgame is populated by twelve ancient bloodlines. In each line, a Player trains for a catastrophic event that has not yet happened—until the Calling. Now the Players must set off on a journey in search of three ancient keys that will save not just their line, but the world. Each book in the trilogy will feature an interactive “super puzzle” comprised of clues and riddles layered into the story. Google Niantic is building a mobile, location–based, augmented reality game inextricably tied to the books and mythology. Full Fathom Five will have a major cash prize tied to the puzzle in each book. Twentieth Century Fox has bought the movie rights.
