I received this book to review from Bookworld for the Reader Rewards program In a nutshell: I’ve not read anything quite like Endgame: The Calling before. It was intense and intriguing to an extent but it did not work for me personally. On October 7, 2014, Endgame: The Calling, the first book in a trilogy of novellas by Frey and Nils Johnson-Shelton, was published by HarperCollins.

In Volume 1, Jensen argues for premises 1 through 17, and he argues for the remaining three premises and their
