Two keys have been found. The strongest Players are left. One final key remains to win Endgame and save the world.
At the Calling, kepler 22b told the Players, “The rules of Endgame are simple. Find the keys in order and bring them to me.”
For Sarah, Jago, Aisling, Maccabee, Shari, An, and Hilal, Endgame has reached its final phase. Earth Key and Sky Key have been found, and one key remains: Sun Key. This is all that stands between one Player saving their line—and all the other lines of humanity perishing. And only one can win.

Maccabee has Earth Key and Sky Key and he is determined to find Sun Key. He Plays to win, always. But fate can turn in the blink of an eye. Especially for the Player who carries the strange child, Sky Key, with him to the end.
An Liu Plays for something more certain: death. His tics have returned, his mind fractures. Will these prevent him from destroying Endgame, and the world along with it?
Aisling Plays for something more fleeting: life.
And in spite of all that’s happened in Endgame, Aisling has help. Sarah, Jago, Shari, and Hilal share her mission. Sun Key must not be found.
For these Players, the rules of the game have changed.
No matter what they’re Playing for, the remaining Players have one thing in common: they are all willing to die to achieve their mission, whatever this may be.
