The Gauntlet (The Cage, #3)
The Maze Runner meets Scott Westerfeld in the final novel in the gripping and romantic Cage series, about teens abducted from Earth by an otherworldly race.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.

    OMG I'm so excited to read this book! The last two are amazing!! It's an everyday challenge not to think too much about this book since it has not yet been published. This trilogy should be a movie!!!

Intergalactic war is brewing, and it is up to Cora to run the Gauntlet and save the human race from alien enslavement. But she has to get there first. This last installment of the series brings things together, and Cora and crew are all hands on deck. But as things pick up, she's not sure who to trust. Imposters are appearing everywhere, and one alien species is out for blood. If they can stop Cora from winning the Gauntlet, they can rule the universe.This third book ties things together. There is plenty of action, and most everything is explained and wrapped up in an acceptable way. I enjoyed this one much more than book 2.Series-wise, I'm somewhat disappointed in the cover choices as they will be off-putting to teen boys who would otherwise really enjoy this. The story is much more of a gender-neutral science-fiction tale than a romantic run through alien terrain. Hopefully they can fix that in the future.
