Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling Prey author John Sandford and Michele Cook debut a high-octane young adult thriller series.
Shay Remby arrives in Hollywood with $58 and a handmade knife, searching for her brother, Odin.
Odin’s a brilliant hacker but a bit of a loose cannon. He and a group of radical animal-rights activists hit a Singular Corp. research lab in Eugene, Oregon. The raid was a disaster, but Odin escaped with a set of highly encrypted flash drives and a post-surgical dog.
When Shay gets a frantic 3 a.m. phone call from Odin - talking about evidence of unspeakable experiments, and a ruthless corporation, and how he must hide - she’s concerned. When she gets a menacing visit from Singular’s security team, she knows: Her brother’s a dead man walking.
What Singular doesn’t know - yet - is that 16-year-old Shay is every bit as ruthless as their security force, and she will burn Singular to the ground, if that’s what it takes to save her brother.

Should have left the YA knock offs to Patterson

What disappointed you about Uncaged?

This could have been yet one more James Patterson junk novels where a great author lends their name to another writer to push out commercial tripe for young adults. Teens unite to save the world from evil corporations. Oh come on, hasn't this been done to death. Sandford is one of my all time favorite writers. May be that's why this apparent sell out was so hard to swallow.

Kevin J Anderson's Dark Between the Stars

What didn’t you like about Tara Sands’s performance?

Voice has the quality of nails on a chalkboard. After getting used to the irritating tenor, Sands does to a good job of "telling" the story instead of reading it. Maybe its just the teenage girl screaming and wanna be hip team talk that rubs me the wrong way.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Is spite of everything else, the book did take a worn out plot and move it along at a Sandford worthy pace and it is well written. I just wish I hadn't known where it was going before I got half way through the book.

Any additional comments?

I hated it when Patterson decided to franchise his creativity to turn out mediocre dime store novels. I hope this series is Sandford's only venture down that path.

Nothing like typical Sandford

What disappointed you about Uncaged?

The narrator is terrible. Sandford's other books have great narrators who improve the story line.

What was most disappointing about John Sandford and Michele Cook ’s story?

Since they are a married couple, I thought the book would have much of the type of story he writes, however this looks like a book she wrote and he put his name with her to sell it.

What didn’t you like about Tara Sands’s performance?

She is one of the most irritating readers I have listened to.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
