I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

The first Nought Prime Minister, Tobey Durbridge, is about to go on trial for the murder of notorious ganglord, Dan Jeavons. Tobey insists he is being framed.
There were ten seats at Dan's dinner party the night he was killed and each guest had their own reasons for wishing him dead.
Sephy Hadley was one of the guests that night. Haunted by the idea that she didn't do enough to stop the death of her first love, Callum McGregor, Sephy will not sit quietly and wait for accusations to fall on her now. She has her children to protect.

When I first read Noughts and Crosses, I had no idea the impact the story would have on me. Nor that the story would span so many years and end with Endgame.

I was really excited to get my hands on this book and devour it, especially as there had been a huge cliffhanger for the last book. I was eager to dive straight in and find out how it would all end. Endgame is very different from the first book, with the final book having more thriller vibes. Not that I’m complaining as I feel that the books have grown with the readers.

This was a chance to tie up everyones stories and to finally finally get the happy ending everyone deserved. I have been super invested in the ,world of Callum and Sephy, Jude and Meggie, jasmine and Callie-rose, and even Tobey and Dan, that now I am not sure what to do with myself.

To be honest, trying to write this review without spoilers is nearly impossible. All I can say is that this leads on from Crossfire and ties up every question you ever had. Also I really enjoyed Sepoy’s journey and how much she has changed from the first book. And to then see the the new generation being able to move forward.

Perhaps it is childhood nostalgia, but I was was so sad when I turned the last page of Endgame. This was the end of an era, but what a way to end. Now its time for me to binge read the series all over again!
