Rebel Rising

(The first book in the Cage of Lies series)
A novel by


I live in a cage.

This city is a lie.

And I’m done following the rules.

No one knows what lurks beyond The Wall.

Only criminals are sent into the wastelands to face the Lawless Trials and I never thought I’d find myself fighting amongst the ruthless convicts who live in the shadows of society.

But the more rules I break, the more secrets I unveil.

Like the fact that not everyone beyond The Wall was killed by the contamination a hundred years ago.

Some of them became something...else.

I got too close to the truth and now I have no choice but to play their twisted games or else risk the contamination beyond the borders of the arena.

So when a wild man offers me the possibility of a new life in the ravished world, I have to take it.

Coal Carson is like no man I’ve ever met. He’s strong, savage, fierce and the freedom that shines in his dark eyes calls to me like nothing I’ve ever known.

A life with him is wrought with danger, but also hope...and maybe even love.

But the Guardians won’t let me run for long. They’re coming to destroy me before I uncover the truth they’ve spent so long disguising. And I’ll do whatever it takes to stay ahead of them.

But with the full force of the city coming for me, I might just have to find a way to fight back.
