It's Live!! Cover Reveal: The Gauntlet by Megan Shepherd + Giveaway (US Only)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE GAUNTLET (The Cage #3) by Megan Shepherd, releasing May 23, 2017 from Balzer + Bray. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Megan:

Hello, YABC readers! I can't believe we're almost at the end of Cora and Cassian's story! In THE CAGE, you met them in the Kindred's human zoo, and in THE HUNT, you followed them through a game of cat-and-mouse. Now I'm thrilled to reveal the cover and book description for the final book in the trilogy, THE GAUNTLET! This book is the craziest yet. Cora, Mali, Anya, Rolf, Nok, Leon, and of course, Cassian, are up against the biggest challenge of their lives--and they might not even know who their real enemy is. This book was such a thrill to write, and I hope it keeps you up all night reading!

~Megan Shepherd (THE GAUNTLET, Balzer + Bray)

Release date: May 23, 2017
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
ISBN: 9780062243128
 
About the Book

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 am in LOVE with this cover!! It is perfect! And I love the title because it sounds perfect! Seriously, this is probably my most anticipated 2017 book, I loved the first two so much, and I cannot WAIT for the final one- even though it will be bittersweet!
