Outpost by Ann Aguirre


Outpost is the second novel in the Razorland Series --- it does NOT stand alone.  You absolutely must read, Enclave or you will have no idea what is going on with the storyline or characters.

This book is completely different from, Enclave. The writing isn't as strong but the character development has improved -- they have more depth and emotion to them.

Deuce, Fade, Stalker and Tegan are all trying to adjust to their new lives in, Salvation. Fitting in is proving to be extremely difficult for Deuce, who isn't use to dresses, being treated as a child or acting like a "lady". The hardest thing to suppress is her inner huntress.

Deuce's entire identity is being challenged daily and she isn't one to give up easily --- so when she given the opportunity to volunteer to help protect the community's plots from the freaks, she jumps at the chance.

This proves to be much more difficult than anyone ever imagined. The Freaks have evolved --- their smarter, move conniving and vicious. Then the unimaginable happens....The freaks have taken, Fade and Deuce will do anything to get him back, even if it means her death.

Expect a slow start and a cliffhanger ending. The book doesn't really pick up for a while but it is worth the read.

The third book promises to give us more information of how the freaks or muties (they are not zombies) came to be. I simply can't wait to find out.

Grade: B
