Synopsis: The stakes are higher than ever in The Challenger, the second book in the Contender YA trilogy by the New York Times bestselling author of the Summoner series, Taran Matharu.

The first battle is over, but the Game is just beginning...

Cade Carter and his friends have survived the qualifying round of the mysterious overlords' twisted games, decimated by the loss of so many of their comrades during the fight. But they have no time to mourn, for the next round of trials is about to begin.

When the group discovers that their next foe will be even more ferocious than the last, Cade leads them on a quest out into their strange new world to find anything that might give them an edge. But what they find in the wilds could prove to be even more dangerous than the impending battle...

The stakes are higher than ever in this thrilling sequel to The Chosen.

My Review: This book picked up after book one and man I could not put it down.  I loved the story and this authors stories never disappoint.  This book was wonderful from the characters to the fast-paced plot.  I love how the demons are incorporated in the story and I think that if you are a fan of Matharu's writing then this one is going to be right up your ally.  But man that ending killed me!
