Publisher's Summary

They've left the cage - but they're not free yet.

After their failed escape attempt, Cora, Lucky, and Mali have been demoted to the lowest level of human captives and placed in a safari-themed environment called the Hunt, along with wild animals and other human outcasts. They must serve new Kindred masters - Cora as a singer, Lucky as an animal wrangler, and Mali as a safari guide - and follow new rules or face dangerous consequences. Meanwhile, Nok and Rolf have been moved into an enormous dollhouse, observed around the clock by Kindred scientists interested in Nok's pregnancy. And Leon, the only one who successfully escaped, has teamed up with villainous Mosca black-market traders.

The former inhabitants of the Cage are threatened on all fronts - and, maybe worst of all, one of the Hunt's Kindred guests begins to play a twisted game of cat and mouse with Cora. Separated and constantly under watch, she and the others must struggle to stay alive and find a way back to each other. When Cassian secretly offers to train Cora to develop her psychic abilities - in order to prove the worthiness of humanity in a series of tests called the Gauntlet - she'll have to decide fast if she dares to trust the Kindred who betrayed her or if she can forge her own way to freedom.

Forced to perform for dangerous enemies.

Trained to unlock the secrets of her mind.

Determined to prove humanity's worth.

Betrayed by the only Kindred she trusted, Cora must rely on her developing powers to try to free herself and her friends - even if using them might just destroy her mind.

Pretty good sequel

This was a pretty good sequel. It wasn't as exciting as the first one for me, because in The Cage, we don't really know what's happening or why these people were kidnapped and we're finding things out as we go. I did like seeing the different menageries in this book, especially the Hunt. It was so sad seeing those animals harmed again and again for the Kindred's entertainment. I liked seeing more of Cassian and how much he actually cares for Cora. The story moved at an okay pace, there were some spots in the middle that were a bit slow, but the alternating points of view helped. Leon was a lot more interesting in this book, watching him try to survive and make deals as he slinks around the tunnels was fun. There was one part I didn't like, but I did sort of see it coming. The Gauntlet sounds good and I'm excited to read it. The narrator on this does a great job of the different voices and helped me get into the story.
