Description

The Maze Runner meets Scott Westerfeld in the second novel in this gripping and romantic YA series about teens abducted from Earth by an otherworldly race—from Megan Shepherd, the acclaimed author of the Madman's Daughter series.

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 lounge 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 safari 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, never mind find a way back to each other. When Cassian secretly offers to train Cora to develop her psychic abilities—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.

        Gr 9 Up- The Cage introduced readers to Cora Mason, a young teen who wakes up in a desert with no memory of how she arrived there. As she explores her environment, she discovers that the setting changes from desert to tundra to farm to jungle. She meets four other teens, and eventually they are introduced to their jailer, Cassian, an alien who informs them that they have been abducted from Earth to be living exhibits in an otherworldly zoo. Cora and Cassian develop an attraction to each other, and Cora faces a difficult decision: choosing between Cassian, who could help her escape, and her fellow humans. The Hunt opens after the teens' failed escape attempt as Cora, Mali, and Lucky are punished by being placed in the Hunt-a safari-themed exhibit where humans and animals must serve the Kindred masters. Rolf and Nok end up in a dollhouselike exhibit where Kindred scientists poke Nok, interested in her human pregnancy. Lastly, Leon, the only teen to succeed in escaping, teams up with some black-market traders. Amid the dangers of their new confinements, Cora is selected to represent humanity in the Gauntlet-a series of tests to prove the worthiness of humans. But can Cora learn to trust the person in charge of training her-Cassian-who betrayed her during their escape attempt? Shepherd's latest series takes the famous human zoo concept from Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five and gives it a YA survival twist. Give to fans of dystopian novels looking for a unique twist or fans of Lynne Matson's "Nil" series.

        After a failed escape from their enclosure, Cora and her friends fight to find a way out of alien control for good in this sequel to The Cage (2015). Locked in a cell, Cora yearns to know if her friends are safe. Soon Cassian, the Kindred she once trusted, appears with a plan: he'll train her to face the Gauntlet, a test separating the intelligent species from the lesser. Not only might she be free--so could the rest of humanity. Armed with increasing telekinetic abilities, Cora agrees, but she doesn't trust Cassian; she's determined to trick him and the testers via mind control. But as her plan ramps up, so does the danger her friends face: a Kindred threatens to take away Nok and Rolf's unborn baby, Leon's indebted to smuggler Bonebreak, and Lucky only has days before he turns 19 and the Kindred dispose of him. Through it all, Cora can't help but wonder if she can trust Cassian, who claims he loves her--he may be her only hope. Nonstop action and intrigue follow Cora and her friends, making for a compelling, fast read. However, only Cora and Cassian shine; with so many characters, there's little room to grow attached to anyone else. The intricate world of the extraterrestrials further unfolds, leaving ample room for exploration in the finale. A thrill ride in space with new danger and intrigue around every corner. (Science fiction. 13 & up)
