Happy to embrace her adult independence, Clio moves to the sprawling city of her dreams. The layered beauty of the metropolis lives up to her expectations…until one terrible night, when she discovers the dark world at its core. Clio is launched into a frightening labyrinth where everyone seems to be playing a different game. This hidden inner city blurs the line between reality and illusion, concealing both dangers and rewards–and Clio’s forced journey is complicated by friendship, sexual awakening, and betrayal. Clio’s search for the secret inside the gauntlet’s heart will leave her questioning who she is and what she really wants.

"Gauntlet is a thrilling read with dark twists and turns, and sizzling romance with alluring characters who may or may not be trusted. If you like mysterious mind games and stories that keep you guessing, this book is exactly what you're looking for!" Tania del Rio, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Winter Wilder
