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...more

Here we are again: me singing praise to Ann Aguirre and you guys putting up with me. (Oh, stop trying to run away, I’m not about to start singing for real.) I must admit I was terrified of reading this book, but not because I doubted Aguirre in the least. After reading 11 of her books and loving them all, I know perfectly well what she’s capable of. No, I was terrified because, even before starting it, I knew it would crush me into tiny Maja bits. And it did.
There’s a reason for everything, and...more

this three star rating should not be a mark against this book; i am just giving it a three because i liked it slightly less than enclave, to which i gave four stars, and that is the way i do math...

and of course the first book in a series is usually the best: new characters, new setting, exciting world-building; everything is designed to reel you in and make you want more.

this second book is more concerned with character development. and probably, upon a re-read, i will like this one just as m...more

I don't even know if I can say that this book was better than the first because they were both so good! These books are everything I've ever wanted. I'm done with meekly paranormal-romance. I need more dystopian and science-fiction. The characters are amazing and I could never disagree with anything the author has done in this series. I love this. I need a tissue.

FACEPALM

'Outpost' has been infected by the plague terrorizing YA books known as 'Sequel book syndrome'. It'll be jam-packed with love triangle dilemma, where the female 1.0 will be constantly torn between male 1.0 and male 2.0. The book seems it will be in a developed stages of 'Sequel book syndrome'. The male 1.0 will be ignoring the female 1.0 causing female 1.0 to spend more time with the male 2.0 but will still wonder about the male 1.0 while with male 2.0. [...more

That second paragraph of the synopsis reminds me of Ashes by Ilsa Bick and how much I can't wait to read this book!!!

NO. I refuse to be sucked back into this crazy, trippy, creepy universe where people have Family Guy names and sympathize with brutal rapists.

Outpost floored me. I expected a lot after Enclave. The continued character development, the always-heartstopping, frequently-gory action sequences and the complicated emotional entanglements - both romantic and friendship-based - were gripping. If I wasn't fully immersed in something else, I was contemplating this story when I was away from it.

Deuce is a girl who's not just aware of the nightmare outside the gates of Salvation - she's fought for survival inside that nightmare. Trained to be a w...more

September 2012? Really?? Fml. Well, I wish I woulda waited to read Enclave.. the anticipation is killing me!

I have to admit that I am love with this book. I loved Deuce and Fade and I am SOOO glad she made it clear to Stalker early on that things weren't going anywhere between them. I can never get over Stalker being a rapist and I will never see him as a love intrest. Plus, he feels very manipulative to me... For instance, when Deuce was going to save Fade and he is all like Kiss me, kiss me before you go... Really, I think that was manipulative, this girl is going to save her boyfriend and all you c...more

I won this ARC through a contest on the author's website.

This book begins where Enclave left off. Deuce & Co. (Fade, Stalker and Tegan) are now adjusting to life in the topside town of Salvation. Men and women in Salvation stick to their roles...and Deuce is not a fan. She isn't a girly-girl; she's a fighter. As each member of the group works to fit in, we see them growing up in a more traditional sense. All of them have been through so much that they are wise beyond their years. However, r...more

I had so much hope for this book after reading (and immensely enjoying) Enclave, only to be quite disappointed.

Let me start with what I think is the biggest flaw of this book. Stalker. In my mind, I keep seeing all the violence on his tab. (Oh how the rape was so not subtly implied!) There's just no redemption nor restitution for such a grave transgression. Comparing him to Fade is a really bad idea. Making him a 'potential' love interest is just downright creepy. Every moment Deuce spends with...more

I breezed through 'Outpost', the sequel to 'Enclave', in a matter of hours and I wish I could go with Deuce and her friends on her next frighteningly dangerous journey through freak-infested territory by devouring 'Horde' right now. It doesn't happen so often that I am that contented with a second/middle volume.

I suppose, I definitely could do without the love-triangle - although it's not a very sharp-angled or annoying one since the heroine's preferences are pretty clear and remain that way. A...more

I think I enjoyed this one a bit more than Enclave. It was interesting to follow Deuce as she settled into Salvation and struggled with the different roles she was expected to take on. From Huntress/adult to school girl/child, she never completely compromised and for that, I adore her.

And Fade? Plenty of swoony lines. I loved his reactions to Deuce when she wore dresses and curled her hair. That his love seemed to grow more when he saw that side of her and that he never tried to get her to chan...more

Razorland is turning out to be one of my favorite series. I am usually disappointed when it comes to the second book in a series. They all seem to fall flat and lose some of the spark the first book had. Not with this series. I enjoyed this book more than I did Enclave. The action is intense. You learn a lot more about the characters, and you see Deuce become more vulnerable yet stronger too.
Deuce is trying to come to terms with Salvations rules and finds herself in a new world of challenges t...more

Reading Outpost gave me an entirely new outlook on Enclave, a book I liked but struggled with somewhat. I really liked this one, though, and I have a much better understanding of the society the author created, as well as an appreciation for what she did with the first book. I need to go back and reread that one sometime with this new perspective...but in the meantime, I'm forging straight ahead to Horde!
Karen
Deuce and her friends may be free from the claustrophobic tunnels of the enclave but life is no less confining for her in Salvation, a town that doesn't appreciate the hunter skills which she has honed and perfected.

Outpost is very much a character driven novel. I find it fascinating watching how Deuce, Fade, Tegan and Stalker develop in a world where adults have manipulated & abandoned them. Now in Salvation the adults try to save a childhood for the four that has long past. These kids have...more

Wow, such an amazing book. A word of caution, there's going to be a lot of adjectives in this review! =) This book has got everything. It's exhiliratingly adventurous, crazy romantic, and very thought-provoking. And the ending is so heart-warming. Really fantastic. I love Deuce. She's an unbelievably courageous heroine. Probably one of the most gutsy characters out there. But to her, her moral code doesn't leave her with much of a choice. Her philosophy is so rich and practical.

I just read that little preview and all I can say is AHHH! I need to read this book. NOW! It's already good!

Okay, I know this book is kind of the typical story line with the love triangle etc etc but it's soooo good and fascinating. I love it anyway.

The first book was flippin' fantastic and I have no doubts that this one will be the same. But it comes out in September. How am I going to wait that long?!?!

I listened to the narration and it was decently narrated, although the narrator sounds very young. But, then again in this story the main character Deuce is really young. Outpost begins when Deuce is 15.5 years old.

So I enjoyed Enclave, the first in this series, but didn’t love it. I was lukewarm enough about that book that I waited months after the release of Enclave to start it. Ultimately, Enclave addressed all of my concerns about Outpost and is such a better book than the first one in this...more

Enclave was good, Outpost was GREAT.

Deuce really grew on me this time. I loved how she had to figure so many things; breaking down societal barriers and expectations not to mention deciphering emotional relationships too. She went beyond a one dimensional existence to a individual who was part of a family, a partnership and a purpose. Speaking of partnerships, hallelujah and thank you for a love triangle that actually made sense and didn't make me want to throw something. (kudos for a quick reso...more

I'll cry if nothing happens with Deuce and Fade.

amazballs!!! can't wait for the next one!

I know some people will have a little bit of trouble accepting and some will be pissed and outraged that the protagonist actually likes Stalker, someone with a history of violence and who raped women. However, I thought Aguirre did a wonderful job expressing the difference between Stalker and Miles. We see in depth character development (or continued from the first novel) from Stalker. Being part of a gang or the enclave (even to some point Salvation) can...more

This review will contain spoilers for Enclave, the first book in the Razorland trilogy, so beware if you haven’t read it yet!

When I first started reading Outpost, I was very nearly put out by the slower pace of the story. Enclave kept me clinging to each page, but Outpost moves at a more sedate pace, at least for the first half. But as I dug deeper into Deuce’s new world, I realized that the slower pace works very well, for Deuce is dealing with a completely different set of challenges in the wa...more

If you haven't read Enclave and Outpost, you have been missing out on what I consider to be one of the most thought provoking post apocalyptic series around these days. Outpost has everything most dystopian fans love; action, savage rotting zombie-like creatures called Freaks (which are freakin disgusting), and a love story. Yes,I admit that it is my least favorite sort of love story (the dreaded love triangle), yet I feel that the author uses it tactfully as a device to emphasize that Deuce is...more

All of the aspects I loved in the first book (world building, character development, the action, love-triangle, and the Heroine) are further developed and explored in this sequel. Outpost was truly fantastic, breath taking, and absolutely entertaining.

The drama and slow built intensity ensued in familiar fashion, but the stakes were raised significantly as Deuce and the others settle down in a Topside community called the Salvation. Deuce confronts and struggles with external (Freaks or Muties)...more

I couldn't wait to read this, and after waiting a year, I wasn't disappointed. I feel like the writing could be smoother, but I think this is characteristic of this author's style based on this series and others I've read. The way the main character kept referring to herself as a huntress over and over again was a little annoying. None of this, however, will keep me from reading her next installment.

I found myself seriously stressed out about the love triangle. In part, this made me read faster...more

This book was unbelievable! I'm glad I finally got around to reading it. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Agghhhhhh! I've finished it! There's no more book to read!

*pauses for breath, is startled by a new thought*

Agghhhhhh! I'm going to have to wait a year or more until the next book comes out! NOOOOOOOO!

Okay, I will try to keep my gushing and fawning to a minimum, focusing instead on a review of the story. Though I can't promise some fan-girl enthusiasm won't slip through.

This, the second entry in Ann Aguirre's Razorland series, picks up where Enclave left off. Deuce, Fade, Tegan, and Stalker have...more
