Kingdom of Aksum, Ethiopia. Hilal ibn Isa al-Salt narrowly survived an attack that leaves him horribly disfigured. But the Aksumites have a secret that is unique to their line. A secret that could help redeem all of humanity.
London, England. Sarah Alopay has found the first key. But getting Earth Key has come at a great cost to Sarah. And the only thing that keeps the demons at bay is Playing. Playing to win.
With only two keys left to claim, the remaining Players will stop at nothing to find Sky Key--wherever it is, whatever it is--as the world begins to crumble.SKY KEY: AN ENDGAME NOVEL

This book greatly improved over the first one. I still hate Jago and Sarah but there was more Aisling, Shari, and Maccabee even managed to get some more time at least enough for me to dare I say it, root for him.There was enough action to keep me interested and the stakes were really high the whole time. The only ones really cruising and waiting like an ambush predator were Maccabee and Baitsakhan but even at one point Maccabee had hard choices to make in order to win. A hard thing to do is make every different setting different from the next especially when dealing with so many POVs but it felt distinct enough to know that they were all scattered around the world. The story could still use a little more cohesiveness but it's solid enough that it does feel like it's all bound together and flows nicely instead of feeling jumpy and fleeting. It's likely just my own little thing but I laugh at the Spanish Jago uses. He calls his dad "papi" but his mom "mama"(accent over the second a)? "Mami" and "papi" are the more affectionate terms but "mama" and "papa" are used when there's more respect over affection and from what I gathered Jago is more affectionate towards his mom than his father so...And using "papi" is like saying "daddy". Then some of the swearing looked like direct google translations. I won't write them here because I have no desire to read over them again but it could be that Frey was using Peruvian swearing, I do know quite a bit about Mexican swearing and it's what I am accustomed to. If you asked me after the first book if I'd be finishing the series I would have said only because I'm hate reading but after this book I am interested in finding out who wins...or if there's a final loophole in ending the game before it wreaks havoc and they all band together to finally do it. I understand not wanting to kill a baby in order to save the world (and end the story) but Hilal had a big advantage. Had he not been incapacitated by Baitsakhan I would've put my money on him to stop the game. If anyone knows what to do I think it would be him.
