Claire (f20clarity) | 2 comments Hi everyone, I read a sci-fi book about 8 years ago and I'd love to figure out what the title was. It was about a young woman and her family (I think there was at least one parent or grandparent and possibly a younger sibling) living on a beautiful Eden-like planet. However, because of what humanity did to Earth, the people living on this new planet are not allowed to go into the environment and are kept away.

I specifically remember a scene in which a group of wealthy visitors to the planet (I'm not sure if the girl was with them or if this was from another character's perspective) go on a tour through the wilderness on a series of metal boardwalks with fences around them. They see a group of people that live on the planet trying to escape into the wild. The government has created creatures that keep the environment safe from people and a hoard of ants attacks the escaping group and, as far as I can remember, eats them.

I'm pretty sure the cover had an illustration of a girl hanging horizontally between some chains or rope or something in a huge metal or concrete sphere. I feel like the title had something to do with Pandora, but I haven't been able to find anything from that alone. Anything you can think of might help me remember, thanks!!

Claire, are you still looking for this or did you find it?

Did you check out Deborah's suggestion "Kingdom of Cages"?
