Amazing, breathtaking and fantastic.

I fell in love with this series a few months back. Sand Runner will always hold a special in my heart. It has to be one of the best dystopian books I have ever read. I was patiently waiting for Cage Runner to come out because I've been dying to know what happened to my favorite characters Kai and Emily. This book has a different pace and the story has evolved in to so much more. You get to see some of my favorite characters from Sand Runner and see what they h

Building from a plausible technological base, Brook combines the passion of young adult dystopia with the moral greys of cyberpunk to create a fast-paced science-fiction thriller that will appeal to a range of readers.

This book is the second in the Sandrunner series. Spoilers might strike from any direction.

After giving away first place in the No Limits Race, Kai hoped he could settle down with Emily. However, with the money he won from the race gone, he is drawn into the underground extreme rac

This was a strong follow-up to Sand Runner. I love the world Vera Brook has created – it’s close enough to ours to be entirely comprehensible, but with some nasty twists that are utterly plausible for the close future.

It was also fun to spend more time with Kai. Bless him, I alternately wanted to hug him and slap him for doing the right thing even when his moral code was clearly going to leave him at a massive disadvantage. And yet, it’s his loyalty and willingness to put himself on the line tha

I'm having a terrible time reviewing this without completely spazzing out because I freaking LOVE Brook's writing style!

Cage Runner by Vera Brook is just as good as Sand Runner, also by Vera Brook.

It is a rare gem indeed when the author slays not only the first book but also the second.

Once again I was fully immersed in Kai and Emily's story, and rushed through a book that I swore I'd go slow on. And now I'm stuck here waiting for the next- and why is it that the most boring books get 1000

I really enjoyed this book, which is well-suited for older-YA readers and adults who like a little Hunger Games/Legend inspired fiction. It was filled with action from beginning to end and the character and story development flowed smoothly. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Book two in this series did not disappoint. I've been waiting to get my hands on it! Kai's story is fascinating to me and I love the world building of this book series. I was bummed when it ended, though I did enjoy the fact that it was quite long. I know authors hate to hear this, but can we have book three now, please?

Where's book #3!?!

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Sand Runner. And I'm yet again surprised by where this second book takes us. You meet new friends, interact with some old foes, and trip over who's the good guy and who's the bad. I'm intrigued by where this story is going, and truly cannot wait to see what happens next!!!
