Overview

Outpost (Enclave Series #2) by Ann Aguirre

Deuce’s whole world has changed. Down below, she was considered an adult. Now, topside in a town called Salvation, she’s a brat in need of training in the eyes of the townsfolk. She doesn’t fit in with the other girls: Deuce only knows how to fight.

To make matters worse, her Hunter partner, Fade, keeps Deuce at a distance. Her feelings for Fade haven’t changed, but he seems not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out.

Deuce signs up to serve in the summer patrols—those who make sure the planters can work the fields without danger. It should be routine, but things have been changing on the surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks have grown smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it may take a girl like Deuce to turn back the tide.

Good Stuff!!! Please tell us why the freaks are the way they are, in the third installation; I know other readers are dying to know as well. Look forward to the next book.

I really enjoyed Enclave (read my review here) but I just loved Outpost. I was a little foggy on some of the details from Enclave, but re-reading the summary plus my review helped clear things up. And once I started Outpost, all the pieces fell back into place and I jumped right back into Deuce's world. I found Enclave to be pretty dark, mostly because much of the book takes place in the subway tunnels. Outpost is set in the Topside town of Salvation, and I enjoyed the new scenery just as much as Deuce did. I liked Deuce as a character in Enclave, but I really admired her so much more in this book. Her hard exterior softens bit by bit as she learns to let other people in and to let herself love for the first time. Watching Deuce change was one of my favorite parts of this book. The best thing about Outpost was the fast-paced plot and all of the action. There was so much going on, all the time, and it kept things really interesting and moving quickly. I had come to expect the Freaks to act one way, and when they started changing, it really intrigued me. I love how Aguirre leaves us hanging a little bit with regard to the Freaks. We still don't know how they came to exsist or how humanity will rid the world of them. In fact, we still don't know a lot about how the world got to where it is. Aguirre included an afterword and promises to explain everything more fully in book three, which I am really looking forward to. I have not read any of Aguirre's other books but based on the way this series is going, I will be seeking out her other work. She's a great writer and I would highly recommend the Razorland series!

I didn't like this book as much as the first one. It had plenty of action, and I liked how the author expanded on characters we only glanced in book one. However, I feel like our main characters changed. Duece seemed to become quite ignorant, which was a trait I didn't associate her with in book one. Fade also changed, becoming softer and more sensitive in my opinion. Duece's 'two sides', her girl side and her huntress side got on my nerves. Why can't she just be both? That being said, I enjoyed the developement with the Freaks and the characters of Longshot, Stalker and Tegan. I really did get involved in the story and will probably read book three.

Outpost, sequel to Enclave, is a must read. I bought it the day of release and couldn't put it down until reading the entire book. I must have reread the final pages at least three times. Loved it! I'm going to be on pins and needles waiting for the third book to come out. I was/am a big fan of Fade, but now I can't help routing for Stalker. :) Happy reading.

You know a book is good when you catch yourself still reading it at 2am on a weekday!! I could not put this book down. Most of all, it made me realize how much and how many things we take for granted everyday. It also made me wonder what the world would be like if we had more youth with the courage and character of Fade, Deuce, and Stalker.

Had a good ending ,but think it was a little lovey dovey amd if you want a backround on college enclave read foundations it only 40 pages but it builds on what thimble and stone find

I loved this book! I think it was better than the first one, Enclave, by two. At least.  Stalker really struck a note with me in this book, seemed more of a person instead of a horny douche. I feel bad for Fade but am hopeful about how he'll end up.  I am super happy neither of the girls went all mooshy and soft like so many other novels that are supposed to have strong female leads.  I am happy Deuce is learning to be more emotional, and even happier that it isn't overwhelming the character she was in the first book. I can't wait for the next in the series and hope this review helped someone.

Loved this book and cannot wait for book 3 to be published! Enjoyed the new characters and this book packed a ton of action, backround & so many new adventures & trials for the two main characters from bk 1, Enclave and 2 new characters added into their journey. Twists and turns that I didnt expect kept me on the edge of my seat! Would have read this in one sitting but my Nook battery died! I hope she writes a few more books in this series.....and Id enjoyed the novellas with backstory and also what had become of 2 supporting characters from bk 1. Anyone of any age who enjoys dystopian & post apocalyptic reads will definitely enjoy this series and novellas.

To fellow dystopic novel fans, My favorite books are Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Divergent. I don't know why people are comparing enclave/outpost to hunger games, because it's not really like hg except for the fact that katniss and deuce are both badass. Here's the biggest difference: are peeta or gale desirable?(no) Fade is......oh my god. The romance is wonderful and there is enough action to make exciting. And, i can't forget about the freaks....THEY'RE TERRIFYING! A must read! Age: 13 Why: some sexual references and making out

I liked it and although Enclave had more action in it, it was still good. Now, Deuce is given a chance to relax and actually be a woman. She falls more in love with Fade and they get more comfortable with each other. I dont know why people are comparing this to Twilight (must you morons compare everything to Twilight and Hunger Games?) Deuce isnt becoming whiny and Bella-like, she just has a family, the love of her life and more sentimental things to think about. That doesnt make her a softie. She's still a warrior and she has her marks to prove it. Comenting on her love life, I like Stalker almost as much as I like Fade. Maybe I like Stalker a bit better even though Fade is like, the dream guy. Still, Ive been known to root for the underdogs. Commenting on the action, very good. Kept me at the edge of my seat. It's insane knowing the mutants are becoming so much smarter. They're actually organizing, building, grouping and worst of all, breeding. They can even growl words. How will Deuce, Fade, Tregan and Stalker survive the quickly learning Mutants who have even started to fatten and then cook the game (humans) they catch? How will they survive when the Mutants start organizing battle strategies and burning down settlements? I cant wait for the third novel, I have a feeling a really disturbing situation is about to be revealed in the next novel (even more disturbing than Mutants having sex and procreating). 4 stars for this.

Great followup to Enclave. Can not wait for book 3!

I think the first book was better because it had more action and more questions at the end. But this book is also amazing bit i sort of got tired that all of this happend cause of the freaks. This book is more romantic then everything and the love triangle with stalker, duce, and fade will keep you on your tip toes. This book has to do with fitting in or acting like someone your not but at the end you relize its better to be yourself because in the futer great things will happen.

Amazing book!!!! everybody needs to read this. ann aguirre created the perfect blend or action and romance. Although there is a bit of gore, nothing to unbearable. i love this series and im looking forward to the third and final book in the triliogy. TEAM FADE!!!! ;) (i really hope that deuce doesnt end up with stalker, everybody knows that they are alike, but too much alike as mentioned in the book. fade just needs to comes to his sences, and realize that he needs deuce. but i am not expecting a gooey happy ending)

Its hard to find a book with a strong, independent main character. And if you've read Enclave then you know Deuce is bad@$$. I loved this book as much as the first one. You see glimpses of her soft side in this one, which doesn't clash with her bad@$$ness lol. It just made me love her more. I'm a romantic and I don't think love triangles will ever get boring to me, ( which this book has) so I loved it even more. I hateee Zombie movies, (So Cliched) and even though the freaks/muties aren't mentioned as Zombies its pretty obvious what they are, however, Ann Aguirre made it so much fun to read about them. I can not wait for the next book. I'm soo happy that there even is a next one. If you haven't read it yet then buy it or borrow it or something, its definitely worth it:)

This is a good sequel to Enclave. The characters have developed more and you meet some new faces. Some you will hate some you while grow attached to. Deuce has developed a new side, her girl side. But she is still a huntress through and through. You get to look inside of Fade and his feelings for Deuce. And Stalker is still hanging in there and I have grown to like his character. I can't wait for the next one!! I will definitely be rereading some parts since I tend to do that when I grow attached to a book. :D

I asked my son, who read this book at the same time as me, to share in reviewing. His answers are short as he's afraid to spoil anything to come and being thirteen not sure the way to twist the words yet. (M = Me, K = Kiddo, my 13 yr old son who's new to this reviewing thing) The Setting…. M: Where do we start? We start in a fort town, then move to the Outpost watching over the fields. Did you like the setting? K: Yes. It was different from the first one because the first one was underground and this one is above ground in a fort. M: Yes, gives you a whole different view of the world. The Freaks… K: They are getting smarter! But some people are too scared to realize it. Scared of the freaks and sit behind the fighters to deal with it. M: You predicted this in the first review! There is a lot more to them than we suspected. I can’t wait to learn the whole story and see what comes of the Freaks. What about you? K: I think they’ll get smarter again. I think they will act like normal people do. And see more of them, they are the point of the story. M: The Freaks bring a whole new dynamic to the story. The Characters…. M: We have Deuce, who’s struggling here with being in a whole new atmosphere and living arrangements than she’s use to. K: She wants to fight freaks because that’s all she knows. M: Yep, and she finds a way to keep to her believes. K: Uhhh, somewhat. M: Why do you say that? K: Because she still has to do other stuff, like her person she’s living with gives her a dress and she has to wear it. She does have to act like a girl sometimes. M: Ah, yes, her character is evolving with the atmosphere she’s in. The lovely lady that takes her in, like a mom. And learns the difference between boys and girls. We have Fade! Poor Fade…. Now no spoilers! About him. K: He’s quiet and doesn’t do much. M: But he fits in better than she does. K: Because he’s quiet. M: This is his element, he came from topside. But he struggles too. We can’t say too much about Fade in or out of town. But him and Deuce find new ground between them… M: We still have Tegan and Stalker too. They seem to fitting in rather well. The Feeling while reading…. K: Surprised for some things. Like when Fade got captured and his reaction to it. M: Yes. I agree. I was afraid knowing what Deuce and company knows of the freaks, I had a feeling of trapped in Salvation because it was fort. I liked when they went out to the Outpost. We really started to learn more about the Freaks there. What about the relationships of the main company? K: They change. M: Good or bad? K: Both. M: Lol, okay we wont spoil for anyone and go on with that topic. The End… M: I know you have strong feelings about this ending. Want to share? K: Not surprised because I knew it was going to happen. But it was different. The book hints at it coming. M: I remember when you finished this book. You came right to me, handed over the book, and said, “There’s going to be another.” Giving me a strong look. It was kind of a cliff hanger ending, do you think? K: Sure. M: The ending leads you into wanting the next book. I can’t wait to get it. Are you looking forward to it? K: Yes. I do want to know. M: Would you suggest this book? K: Yes. Rate it a 7-7.5 out of 10. (I’m a tough rate.) M: I would have to agree with you.
