Waiting on Wednesday (#203): The Gauntlet by Megan Shepherd


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


The Gauntlet by Megan Shepherd
Book Three of The Cage series
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication Date: May 23, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

Cora and her friends have escaped the Kindred station and landed at Armstrong—a supposed safe haven on a small moon—where they plan to regroup and figure out how to win the Gauntlet, the challenging competition to prove humanity’s intelligence and set them free. But Armstrong is no paradise; ruled by a power-hungry sheriff, it’s a violent world where the teens are enslaved and put to work in mines. As Nok’s due date grows closer, and Mali and Leon journey across space to rescue Cassian, the former inhabitants of the cage are up against impossible odds.

With the whole universe at stake, Cora will do whatever it takes, including pushing her body and mind to the breaking point, to escape Armstrong and run the Gauntlet. But it isn’t just a deranged sheriff she has to overcome: the other intelligent species—the Axion, Kindred, Gatherers, and Mosca—all have their own reasons to stop her. Not knowing who to trust, Cora must rely on her own instincts to win the competition, which could change the world—though it might destroy her in the process.




I can't wait to see how this series ends!

  11. I wasn't hugely thrilled with the first book, and never got around to finishing the second, although I did barely start it. One of these days I'll have to go finish up. Thanks for stopping by Lisa Loves Literature's WOW earlier.

    1. Awww! I know what you mean though. I gave the first book three stars, but then LOVED the second book. It gets better!

      You're very welcome!

  12. The Cage series is one that has completely passed unnoticed to me, lol. I had to look up the first book before I recalled seeing it before. I'm much more familiar with The Madman's Daughter, but still, I haven't yet read a Megan Shepherd book...

    1. It has flown under a lot of radars! But I think it's better than her debut trilogy. ;)

  13. I must admit I'm pretty unfamiliar with this series, The Cage. Although glaring over the synopsis for this one has got me curious. Actually, that sounds pretty intense!

  14. I really, really liked The Hunt, I can't wait to know how everything ends. I hope we both love it!

  15. I didn't enjoy the romance in the first book, so I haven't continued reading this series. I hope you'll love this one though! :) Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my WoW earlier.

    1. Awww! I know what you mean though - it was a bit love-triangle-y. Thankfully that disappeared in book two (though it wasn't too triangle-y to begin with).

      You're very welcome, Petra!
