It’s Tuesday! The wonderful day of the week that books are released to the world.
I’m anticipating the release of Outpost by Ann Aguire on Tuesday, September 4, 2012. I loved Enclave, the first book in this series. (Review Here) I was so enthralled in Aguire’s world. I cannot wait to see how Deuce reacts to being treated like a child. I LOVE stories about being underestimated and proving doubters wrong. I have a strong feeling this is going to be one of those novels. I’m also really hoping Fade comes around on his “feelings” towards Deuce, but we’ll see. Regardless, I’m excited to see more of Deuce fighting — she’s so kick ass!
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.
