Publisher's Summary

In this riveting sequel to New York Times best-selling author Rachel Vincent's acclaimed novel Menagerie, Delilah Marlow will discover that there is no crueler cage than the confines of the human mind.

When their coup of Metzger's Menagerie is discovered, Delilah and her fellow cryptids find their newly won freedom brutally stripped away as they are sold into The Savage Spectacle, a private collection of "exotic wildlife". Specializing in ruthless cryptid cage matches, safari-style creature hunts, and living party favors, the Spectacle's owner, Willem Vandekamp, caters to the forbidden fetishes of the wealthy and powerful. At the Spectacle any wish can be granted - for the right price.

But Vandekamp's closely guarded client list isn't the only secret being kept at the Spectacle. Beneath the beauty and brutality of life in the collection lie much darker truths, and no one is more determined than Delilah to strip the masks from the human monsters and drag all dark things into the light.

    "alright"

    The first book was pretty cool and this ones story was decent, but I found myself getting very irritated at how helpless/stupid the characters were when confronted, making assanin decisions which somehow made a great character easy to take down with little to know effort until later when all of a sudden everyone can dodge and fight.

    "So good--spoiler free review"

    Was worried that it wouldn't live up to Menagerie, but damn. I was sucked in so hard that I wore headphones all day and ignored my husband as he played video games just to finish it. I stayed up late 2 nights in a row listening to it just to finish it. Probably would have finished it sooner had I not to sleep, shower and leave the house for a previously scheduled engagement. These books would make amazing graphic novels or a Starz/HBO series if done right. Can't wait for the next one to come out. May go buy a hard copy just to own for collection sake.

    "Spoiler, Book is Sad, Sad, Sad"

    THAT'S NOT HUMAN NATURE, IT'S JUST NATURE
    Three and a half hours in and I am so depressed, I can't continue. This is nothing like Menagerie. This book has no awe and wonder. If you have not read book one, you will be lost. Rachel fails to make me feel or care about the main character.

    Production
    For some reason the book is recorded at a very low level. I had to turn my radio and my mp3 player up as high as they would go. I listen to four or five books a week, every week, and it is rare for me to have to turn my devices up to the max.

    Menagerie
    Menagerie is a great book. Don't let my sad review of this book keep you from getting that book, it is a masterpiece, but evidently lightning does not strike the same place twice.

    WHATEVER I WANT FROM YOU, I'LL JUST TAKE

    "cryptids"

    This was another excellent read, and i am looking forward to the next in the series coming out.
    i did find it very difficult to read due to the levels of degradation and humiliation these people suffered but it again goes to show what a great writer Rachel Vincent is.
    Definitely worth the credit!!

    "Just okay"

    3.5 stars. I enjoyed the first book so much but this one kind of let me down, I wish it would have had a bit of a different plot than being abused in custody. About 3/4 of the way through the story got better but it was a little to late to warrant a better rating. The characters were still interesting and inventive. If there is a next in the series I hope the plot changes.

    "Too much like the first"

    Menagerie was a great book and ended in a way that looked like the second was going to be different and possibly ever better. Sadly *small spoiler* by the end of the first chapter, it becomes very much the same book as the first. The plot is not identical, but the situation is nearly the same... but missing much of the character interaction and development that made the first book a great listen. I would give the book a three, but once again it ended in such a way that the next book could be new and refreshing.

    "Even better than the first... Was worth the wait"

    This story is so easy to read/listen to, very entertaining and creative and just full of action. I am tempted to try her other works now...

    "No spoilers!"

    OH MY GODESS!! This book lived up to the first one and more!
    My heart is still pounding in my chest! The way Vincent writes is so consuming it makes u feel as the characters do, rage, pain, love and bloodlust. I have never wanted revenge on a character more than Joffery from Game of Thrones, or Umbridge of Harry Potter until now.
    I can't wait until the next book is released!

    "Just as good as the first!"

    So good! I loved it every bit as much as the first. I'm already anxious for book three!
