Reviews The Gauntlet (The Cage, #3)

  • Sarah
    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) “The wolves are strong. But the rabbits are clever.” This was a YA sci-fi story, and the end to the series.I liked Cora in this story, and I liked how she kept in mind what was best for her species as a whole. It was pretty brave of her to face the gauntlet the way she did, especially knowing that no other human had ever managed to beat it.The storyli...

    The Cage is a series that I have continued reading despite not actually enjoying it at all. Megan Shepherd had such a fantastic idea with this series, one that pulled me in because of its similarity to my favorite episode of The Twilight Zone. I read the first book expecting to completely love it, especially after loving her Madman's Daughter series, but came away extremely disappointed. Book two was just slightly better and here I am having read...

    Verrassend spannend einde voor The Cage trilogie. Waar het eerste deel me niet helemaal wist te overtuigen, deden boek twee en drie dat glansrijk. Het verhaal zit vol actie, is origineel en onvoorspelbaar. Ik vond het tof!Mijn complete recensie lees je op Oog op de Toekomst.

    I loooove deze serie! Alleen kwam t laatste boek wel langzamer op gang en werd de vuurproef echt POEF POEF POEF gespeeld. Maar toch.

    And it's over! As a whole, I really enjoyed this series. From the beginning of The Cage, we had a group of morally ambiguous characters trapped within a zoo-like compound. Their only mission was to escape and return to Earth. Throughout this series, especially within The Gauntlet, it unfolds as a discovery of what it means to be human. As for the actual anticipated Gauntlet, the puzzles were clever, but surprisingly not my favourite moments. This...

    • Find my reviews here: Literary Meanderings- - -The Gauntlet is the final book in The Cage series, and I have to say I was pretty satisfied with the end of the trilogy!The book picks up pretty much immediately after the events of The Hunt. Cora has escaped and Cassian is captured. A ton of revelations took place near the end of The Hunt, so I was pretty anxious to get my hands on this book!**POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD!**Likes:• Cora really gr...

    As much as I loved the series, this final book was a bit of a letdown, especially the last 50 pages.First the good, these characters are fantastic. Bonebreak and the rest of the Mosca are delightful, interesting, complex, and endearing, I wanted more time with them! The rest of the usual gang is great but Leon in particular won me over. He started out as a very unlikable character but has steadily grown into my favorite human.Overall the book sta...

    The conclusion to the Cage series has Cora as the savior of the human race throughout the galaxy in the form of being their champion in the Gauntlet. However, interstellar politics means she has to first fight her way across to even reach the planet where the gauntlet will be held. The squad has to face many challenges, including separation from one another, betrayal and mistrust, and what they learnt through the Cage, the Menageries, the Dollhou...
