Review: Enders by Lissa Price

Check out Scott Reads It! 


     Starters is one of the best dystopian books ever written and so, Enders had a tough act to follow. I was also a bit worried because it had been so long since I had read Starters (I read it in Feb '12). Enders functions brilliantly as both a sequel and a series conclusion; I'm even 100% convinced that Enders is even better than Starters. I'm really going to miss reading the Starters And Enders series and I know I will be re-reading this series years from now.
        Enders is incredibly intense, this sequel took everything I loved about Starters and expanded upon it. I loved watching Callie try to defeat the infamous Old Man and get rid of the chip inside her head. Personally I think the Old Man is even creepier in this book, I didn't even think this was possible. Another aspect of Enders, I really enjoyed was how Price took "body-renting" to a whole new level. The reader really never feels like the coast is clear during Enders because the threat of the Old Man appearing continues to loom. I was absolutely addicted to Enders because I physically and mentally needed to find out how this series would conclude. 
            Enders is one of all-time favorite endings to a series and it hit all the right spots. All of my favorite characters received the endings they truly deserved and I really like the note that Price ended on.This is the ending that fans have been waiting to read; Enders is the perfect ending to to an amazing series.  It's really upsetting that I don't have any more Starters books to look forward to in the future, but I am extremely confident that Price's follow-up to Enders will be amazing. Enders was definitely worth the wait and I really was blown away the shocking conclusion!
