From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Callie Woodland believes that in having destroyed Prime Destinations, the soulless corporation using teens as "body donors" for wealthy elderly people who want to relive their youths, her remaining family would now be safe. She soon learns, however, that she, Michael, her brother Tyler, and the other "Metals" kids with implanted microchips that allow body transference, will always be hunted because of their potential value to greedy Enders. They go on the run, and Callie meets Hyden, the Old Man's son, who is also trying to escape from his father. Though Callie is unsure whether to trust him, she and Hyden begin to rescue other Metals, hoping to save them from the fate they both fear for themselves—endless, uncontrollable occupation by an undesired Ender. When the Old Man's men manage to kidnap all the Metals Callie and Hyden were protecting, the teens must at least try to release them, though its at great risk to themselves. Rebecca Lowman's voice is a good match for Callie, sounding youthful and running the gamut of teen emotions. She convincingly portrays terror, frustration, confusion, and burgeoning love. Secondary characters generally sound similar, but it does not detract much from the listening experience as the narration is solely from Callie's point of view. Fans of the first title (Starters) will be pleased with the conclusion of the duet, and libraries owning the first title will most likely wish to purchase the second.—Jessica Miller, West Springfield Public Library, MA --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

From Booklist

Bringing to conclusion the story arc begun in Starters (2012), Price’s first take on a postplague Los Angeles, this is pure, adrenaline-fueled plot. Hopefully, you know the setup: a society where bioengineering-enabled older people inhabit the bodies of teens, thus giving them a chance to revisit youth. While Callie, a teen “Metal” with a chip in her head, helped bring down the evil Prime Destinations company, the mastermind, the Old Man, got away. Now, despite the loss of his facility, he is still able to access Callie’s head. A number of tricky twists lead Callie to believe her father may have survived the plague that took down his generation, and might know something useful about the technology. And what’s that? An inappropriate love interest in the form of the Old Man’s son. Callie best heed the Old Man’s advice: “Trust no one but yourself . . . and then question that.” Fans of Starters will gobble this up, and while the ending is conclusive, there remains room to imagine Callie and her fellow Metals in new adventures. Grades 7-10. --Karen Cruze --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I loved Starters and Enders is a great sequel. You MUST read Starters to enjoy or even understand what is going on in Enders. The only thing I wish there was more of in both books was romance; it was sadly too supine!!!! Other than that, it was fast paced, exciting, surprising and continued in that "out of body" experience that Starters introduced us to.

Callie finds out in Starters that "you win or lose by the way you chose" and she lost big time when she chose to have a chip planted in her head hoping to get medical help for her brother, Tyler with her sacrifice. Instead, she got a lot of drama and intrigue that almost got her killed in Starters and continued to keep her life in peril in Enders. In Starters, Callie found that she was present when her body was rented out. In Enders Callie finds that others have found a way to control her and her actions while she is still conscious. This is a real danger for her and others as tyhe could be used as terrorist weapons. Since she can't remove the chip, the only way she can live safely is to find "the Old Man" and stop him.

Callie is being targeted by "the Old Man" who can now talk to her in her head. He is blowing people up to show her that he is still in control despite her blowing up Prime Connections. She doesn't know how to get him out of her head, and when she starts hearing her dead father's voice too, she becomes confused, wanting to believe he is still alive, despite KNOWING he is dead. Then she is kidnaped/rescued by Hyden, the son of the Old Man who has skin that can't be touched without causing him severe pain.

Michael is still a minor character whose job is to babysitter Tyler and is used as pawn against her.

I adored Starters, and Enders was just as mesmerizing. This beautifully written novel is full of action, suspense, and plot twists that kept me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to read what Lissa Price writes next!

Keeping to the tradition of most series these days, this one wasn't as good as the first. Things seemed a bit too forced or convenient. The natural flow of things wasn't there. Sure, there were some nice twists but overall it just didn't have that spark the first one had.

Boy, have the elderly been made to seem evil in this one. The first book seemed to have a few greedy Enders but this one makes it out like finding a nice senior is almost impossible. Unrealistic.

Now that it's over, I'm curious about the Spore War...some country wipes out all the adults leaving only children and the elderly but then what? No invasion. No continuing war. There had to have been some point to it. You don't just wipe out millions of people for the fun of it.

Overall it was a decent read. I would recommend it for young adults but older adults like myself can't help but question the lack of reality in this one.

I enjoyed this book a little more then book one, everything about this book was great.

This book had a really great concepted to it and it pulled me in right away. The main character Callie was so easy for me to fall in love with I just wanted everything to get better for her, but it seem the more she try to make it right the worst things got.

The author wrote this book so well it had me so involved in it from the start. I feel that I can say that this author has made my favorite authors list, I cant wait to read more from this author. This is a very good book and i would recommend this book to anyone how loves a good read. Thios will be a book that i will read for years to come.

I read a LOT. This two book series is a really interesting take on the dystopian world genre. It's a fascinating combination of science and fiction and definitely delves into human nature from one extreme to the other and all the shades of gray in between.

Couldn't wait for this book to be available. It was supposed to be released early but they made us wait. It was well worth it though, couldn't put it down. A little predictable at the end but can't wait for the next one , I hope there will be a next one?
