One moment Cade is enduring school, the next is precariously perched on the wall of a canyon trying to survive the attack of a vicious creature.  He has been deposited on a world with his tormentors, but they are small potatoes compared to the dangers awaiting Cade and the others.  Even if they manage to survive one danger, there is an unlimited series of other challenges lined up to take a literal stab at them. 

Matharu has ratcheted up the gore and body count in his newest series. For readers who grew up with Hunger Games and those who are looking for something to read after the Quarantine series.
