Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling Prey author John Sandford and Michele Cook debut a high-octane young adult thriller series.

Shay Remby arrives in Hollywood with $58 and a handmade knife, searching for her brother, Odin.

Odin’s a brilliant hacker but a bit of a loose cannon. He and a group of radical animal-rights activists hit a Singular Corp. research lab in Eugene, Oregon. The raid was a disaster, but Odin escaped with a set of highly encrypted flash drives and a post-surgical dog.

When Shay gets a frantic 3 a.m. phone call from Odin - talking about evidence of unspeakable experiments, and a ruthless corporation, and how he must hide - she’s concerned. When she gets a menacing visit from Singular’s security team, she knows: Her brother’s a dead man walking.

What Singular doesn’t know - yet - is that 16-year-old Shay is every bit as ruthless as their security force, and she will burn Singular to the ground, if that’s what it takes to save her brother.

    Story
    "Nothing like typical Sandford"
    What disappointed you about Uncaged?

    The narrator is terrible. Sandford's other books have great narrators who improve the story line.


    What was most disappointing about John Sandford and Michele Cook ’s story?

    Since they are a married couple, I thought the book would have much of the type of story he writes, however this looks like a book she wrote and he put his name with her to sell it.


    What didn’t you like about Tara Sands’s performance?

    She is one of the most irritating readers I have listened to.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The reader was so terrible that I didn't finish the book.

    "OMG!! This is not YA; this is SANDFORD @ his best"
    If you could sum up Uncaged in three words, what would they be?

    unrelenting fast-paced gritty


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is only YA in the broadest sense - no twitter; no malls; no video games. Soulless corportations doing horrifying science and young adults the only real opponents. Cutting edge action with believable villains and great characters.


    Have you listened to any of Tara Sands’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    N/A


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was incredulous at how it ended. Please tell me the next one is already written>>>>>>PLEASE.


    Any additional comments?

    I heard Sandford speak and few years back and he said he would not write YA with malls and tweets. He didn't. He took it UUUPPPP a major notch. Wow! Just WOW!!!

    Story
    "Should have left the YA knock offs to Patterson"
    What disappointed you about Uncaged?

    This could have been yet one more James Patterson junk novels where a great author lends their name to another writer to push out commercial tripe for young adults. Teens unite to save the world from evil corporations. Oh come on, hasn't this been done to death. Sandford is one of my all time favorite writers. May be that's why this apparent sell out was so hard to swallow.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Kevin J Anderson's Dark Between the Stars


    What didn’t you like about Tara Sands’s performance?

    Voice has the quality of nails on a chalkboard. After getting used to the irritating tenor, Sands does to a good job of "telling" the story instead of reading it. Maybe its just the teenage girl screaming and wanna be hip team talk that rubs me the wrong way.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Is spite of everything else, the book did take a worn out plot and move it along at a Sandford worthy pace and it is well written. I just wish I hadn't known where it was going before I got half way through the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I hated it when Patterson decided to franchise his creativity to turn out mediocre dime store novels. I hope this series is Sandford's only venture down that path.

    "Good but not great - it takes awhile to get into"
    Any additional comments?

    Seems geared towards a younger audience than the Davenport series but it was pretty good once I got into it. I will get the next one when it comes out.
