It is the year 3036 and Gauntlet finalist Codi James is back for round two. 
  
  With her new position at the top ranked Battlecast Academy and with last year's victor no longer competing, it seems like the fates have aligned to give Codi a clear run at winning the tournament once and for all. Armed with state of the art equipment, a rigorous training schedule and a scholarship fund to let her focus on nothing but the Gauntlet all year round, she has one goal: first place.
  
  But this year the game has changed. She's not the plucky underdog anymore. Codi has the weight of expectations on her shoulders, and there are those who view her leap to fame through jealous eyes. This year her battles won't be confined to the arena, and now she has everything to lose.

I really enjoy this descriptor, building on the already formidable mental picture of her. You can really start to see how truly spectacular she is.
I just hope it stays on the tournament course and not become some conspiracy...... Because it's going so well

I really like this fragment of the sentence, 'lifeblood of the urban colossus.' It helps lend to the huge differences in the Earth we know now and what it is in your world.

I love setting the scene for large cities and you have done a fine job here. Succinct and well laid out, I have the place in my mind.

I'm so happy you wrote the second book! I read The Gauntlet ages ago and all I remembered was that I absolutely LOVED it and so I had to reread it. Can't wait to get started on this one!
