Meet the Author

Ann Aguirre is a national bestselling author whose first novel for teens, Enclave, was praised as "for fans of The Hunger Games" by Publishers Weekly, and won the 2012 RITA Award for young adult romance from the Romance Writers of America. Outpost, the sequel to Enclave, was published in September 2012 by Feiwel and Friends/Macmillan. Ann lives in Mexico with her husband and two children.


Ann Aguirre has been a clown, a clerk, a savior of stray kittens, and a voice actress, not necessarily in that order. She grew up in a yellow house across from a cornfield, but she now lives in a terracotta adobe house in Mexico with her husband and two adorable children. The post-apocalyptic novel Enclave is her first book for young adults. She also writes the romantic science fiction series about Sirantha Jax, starting with Grimspace, as well as urban fantasy and paranormal romance. As Ava Gray, she writes paranormal romantic suspense.

this is a nice short prequel to enclave. it gives some insight in the beginning when outbreak happened. the short describes a teenage boy's days in the bunkers until he and a few others meet the college enclave.

I read the first book in the series before I remembered that there was this prequel. I usually prefer to read the prequel first. I don't think the order hurt me in any way. It was nice to get some background to how people became infected, how the uninfected ended up underground and how the enclaves began. I wish we could have known who, from the main story, if anyone these people were related to. That's my only criticism. I'm loving the story and already reading the 1.5 novella.

Great back story *Book source ~ Purchased on Amazon Robin Schiller is thirteen when he and his parents go underground in a hermetically sealed tiny bunker to avoid the chemical bomb set off in Times Square. Told it would be a temporary thing until order topside is restored, he is fourteen when all contact with the outside world stops. Finding another boy his age in one of the compartments of his unit of the underground Robin whispers conversations with him daily until everyone in the unit decides they should all meet. Robin’s world is turned upside down yet again, but it’s not the last time that will happen. My thirteen-yr-old son is a big fan of the Razorland books, so I bought this prequel more for him than for me, but then decided to read it myself. This is a very interesting story even if it is bleak beyond measure. While every change sucks, there is still hope and when Robin meets Austin he decides he can survive anything as long as he has Austin at his side. I had a mild curiosity to read the series before, but now I really must see how the future that appeared so bleak in Foundation really turns out.

This so called BOOK is only 35 pages long. Come on Ann as a writer of popular series books you certainly could have been generous enough to give this prequel away for free...especially to those of us who buy and loyally read everything you write. Shame on you...and buyers beware.

You can get this book for free by getting The Fierce Reads Anthology: Volume 2. Good book, though.
