Waiting on Wednesday (22): THE CAGE

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!

Title: The Cage
Author: Megan Shepherd
Series: The Cage #1
Release date: May 26, 2015

Summary: When 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 coudl ever imagine: Their captors aren't from Earth. And they have taken 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 int he 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 their cage? 

Thoughts: THAT COVER. It is so gorgeous. I haven't read Megan's Madman's Daughter trilogy yet, but I really want to, especially now that she has this new book coming out in a week! The only alien book I've read is The Host, even though there are a TON out there to choose from. But this one sounds the most intriguing to me! I can't wait to get my hands on this book!

Tell me: what are YOU waiting on this Wednesday? Does my pick sound good to you, too? Let me know in the comments below!
