For those of you who loved Starters then you really do have to get hold of a copy of the sequel Enders.
We meet Callie and her younger brother Tyler and friend Michael in Starters not long after the spore wars has wiped out most of the Middles (middle aged people). Enders (old people) with all their money and might are able to rent out the bodies of young people, the Starters.
Tyler suffers from poor health and with their mother dead from the wars and their father missing, presumed dead, Callie is desperate to get money and a warm, safe place to live. She decides to rent out her body at Prime Destinations. For this rental to happen, a chip is placed inside Callie’s head, just like so many other Starters. This allows the “mind transfer” to happen. Her rental is to an Ender called Helena but it isn’t long before Callie realises Helena isn’t ready to give up her rental. Helena has other plans. And there is a voice inside Callie’s head slowly taking control. Heaps of action and such an intriguing concept. Lots of questions at the end. Who is “the old man”? Who is the voice? Loved Starters.

Enders kept me going just the same. Without giving too much away, Helena is no longer a problem. Callie has left Tyler at a safe house so she, Michael and the mysterious Hyden can find a way to have the chip removed and find other starters and rescue them from those in control. They are all being hunted down. There is again, a heap of action, and heap of guessing who to trust. The chip inside her head can now be controlled leaving her with no options but to do as the controller requires and that just might mean murder!
As Callie is told “trust no one but yourself, and then question that”.
If you are wanting a sci-fi thriller set in a not to distant future with just a little hint of romance these books really are a top read.
Sharing the trailer again, even though I posted this sometime ago. Always great to see this.
