The Maze Runner
meets Scott Westerfeld in this gripping new series about teens held
captive in a human zoo by an otherworldly race. From Megan Shepherd, the
acclaimed author of The Madman's Daughter trilogy.
Cora Mason wakes in a desert, she doesn't know where she is or who put
her there. As she explores, she finds an impossible mix of
environments—tundra next to desert, farm next to jungle, and a strangely
empty town cobbled together from different cultures—all watched over by
eerie black windows. And she isn't alone.
Four other teenagers
have also been taken: a beautiful model, a tattooed smuggler, a
secretive genius, and an army brat who seems to know too much about
Cora's past. None of them have a clue as to what happened, and all of
them have secrets. As the unlikely group struggles for leadership, they
slowly start to trust each other. But when their mysterious jailer—a
handsome young guard called Cassian—appears, they realize that their
captivity is more terrifying than they could ever imagine: Their captors
aren't from Earth. And they have taken the five teenagers for an
otherworldly zoo—where the exhibits are humans.
As a forbidden
attraction develops between Cora and Cassian, she realizes that her best
chance of escape might be in the arms of her own jailer—though that
would mean leaving the others behind. Can Cora manage to save herself
and her companions? And if so . . . what world lies beyond the walls of
