Salvation is surrounded, monsters at the gates, and this time, they're not going away. When Deuce, Fade, Stalker and Tegan set out, the odds are against them. But the odds have been stacked against Deuce from the moment she was born. She might not be a Huntress anymore, but she doesn't run. With h

What an epic conclusion to this brilliant series but, seriously was I the only one who was like:

Maja (The Nocturnal Library)
I have no words for how amazing this book is. Guys, you really have something to look forward to here.
Wendy Darling
4.5 stars A story that is brutal and savage, yet full of honor and tenderness as well. A satisfying conclusion to a series I've come to admire tremendously.

Review to come.

Glorious. Gory. Moving. Provocative. Inspiring. I’m not describing Braveheart, I’m describing Horde, the most outstanding final book in a series I think I have ever read. And that’s high freaking praise.

I am rarely moved by books. They might touch me for a day, maybe 2 but then I’m over it. Hell, this book didn’t just move me; I was ready to pack a flag and head into battle alongside Deuce.

My first bit of advice: if you read Outpost ages ago like I did, re-read it. Or read a summary becau
How can you rate the book when it's two years from publication?!?! The second isn't even out yet! And there's not even a description of the third book!! It's unfair to judge a book like this.
4.5 stars

To any authors trying to figure out how to end their series, I advise you to talk to Ann Aguirre because that lady knows what she’s doing. If I had to sum up my feelings in a gif, it would be this:


I imagine Horde feels similar to a satisfying run. (As I am the kind of person that goes out of her way to avoid that sort of activity, I wouldn’t know firsthand but I’ve read about it.) Your adrenaline’s up and your blood is pumping, you’re in that magic zone where everything’s a rush and you

You know, I really liked ENCLAVE. Was okay with OUTPOST. But have to say that I sadly :( could not reconnect enough to enjoy HORDE, at all.

I don't know whether I've changed since the first book was published, or whether the author's style has evolved, but this was not the book for me. I thought it was slow and boring and I didn't care one wit for what happened to Deuce and Fade. (Although everyone else will be happy with how things turned out for them.)

Deuce has come a
This series blew my expectations out of the water. Could not put it down even to sleep, read the first two in two days. Read it if you like dystopian novels
I'm giving multiple ratings for HORDE. As a whole, it was a good end to a spectacular series that totally knocked my socks off.

HORDE is separated into three parts, and it is those three parts I will be reviewing now:

PART I- 3/5 & PART II- 2.5/5

I was texting a friend, and I think something I said explained my thoughts regarding these two sections perfectly: Deuce is a girl who was, to a certain degree, brainwashed by the society she lived in. So, it is understandable that she would struggle
This review is entirely spoiler free, even if you haven't started this series.

The horde is coming.

Horde is an epic and highly satisfying conclusion to one of the best, well-done post-apocalytpic series out there. Brutal, addictive, and wholly original, Horde is a fantastic finale that will have readers hanging on tightly for this wild ride to never end.

I already knew that this series is filled with tension, scandal, betrayal, and all that fun stuff, but Horde takes the circumstances to a wh
Five Stars: A stunning conclusion to an amazing series!

Deuce arrives at Soldier Pond, begging for help. Her new home Salvation is under siege from the Horde. The Freaks have multiplied and banded together into an unstoppable colony. They are faster, smarter and capable of destroying what remains of humanity. Even though the threat is real, the remaining settlements aren't convinced that they should fight. Deuce takes it upon herself to try and raise an army. If she can't band the remaining settl
Faye, la Patata
It saddens me to say that this book disappointed me beyond my imagination. I have had such high hopes for this finale seeing that I loved Enclave and Outpost a lot, falling in love with the story and the main cast of characters. When I got my hands on Horde, I quickly consumed it without delay, and I thought with my excitement, I could probably finish it in one sitting. I finished this book days after. And it's bad when I finish a book in a span of a few days, because that means I am not as inve ...more
Welp, that's it. It's over, folks. Let me start off by saying that this last book was a little disappointing. I still enjoyed the book somewhat; it's just that this third installment comes nowhere near the other two.


1. Pacing. The pacing was so slow until the last part of the book. Even then, I skimmed the last few pages because there was so much junk. The majority of the book was running around and killing Freaks, with only a shadow of a plan. This bored me nearly to deat
You know those books you read when you where younger? Those books that made you fall in love with reading? This book reminded me of that. However I'm not going to call it a YA book as I don't believe it should be classified as such-the themes and actions and reactions that occurred were more mature than most any YA books I've read, closer to adult fiction. If I had to pick one word for this novel, it would be: fantastic. The progression of plot, the original writing (even when dictating happenin ...more

“Because I love you.' It was easy to say it this time now that I understood what it meant. Then I quoted his own words back to him. 'Not just when it's easy. All the time.”

For a minute there I think my heart stopped.

I’ve had my bad share of series-finale books. Some got left me sad, some left me disappointed, and some even left me incredibly ticked off. So I was wary while reading Horde. I was wishfully thinking this would not blow up in my face. Thankfully, Ann Aguirre did not fail me. Oh! Th

Woah...what happened?

I’m not even going to talk about the storyline or character development (which had both good and bad elements in this final book) -- I’m just going to comment on the writing. What the hell happened to it?

The narrative sucked, it was so bland and dry. Okay, so Deuce has never been an emotional character -- given her background and everything else about her personality, it totally worked and it’s even something I’ve always liked about her. She was more of the ass kicking and l
4.5 stars

I should trust Ann Aguirre more. Her books fascinate and thrill me, but I feel like holding a little back, fearful of investing too much emotion into her characters. It never works, of course, because I am sucked right back into the vortex of thrill, fear, dispair, and hope. But in the end, she never disappoints. This book is stirring, shocking, tender, and in the end, very, very hopeful.

The world is dark, dank, and dirty. The Freaks are amassing into a horde and looking to destroy wha
Some spoilers so be warned... I really enjoyed this series as a whole, and the last book was icing on the cake!

I was glad that she kept the relationship between Deuce and Fade steady in this book... they had their bumps along the way in book 2, which is fine, but I don't like it when authors make characters go into petty cycles with each other repeatedly throughout a series.

I was glad she didn't kill off a bunch of important characters just for shock value. One death shocked me, but in the gran
After having had my heart and trust broken recently by another trilogy ending (here's a hint; it rhymes with Smismurgent), I tackled this book with a bit of trepidation.

Would Aguirre leave my soul trashed by killing off my favorite characters recklessly? Would I be bored and confused?


Ann Aguirre delivers with, perhaps, the best ending to a series I have ever read. You know how every once in a great while a book will really stick to your bones and haunt you? Horde has done just that to me. In
I'll write my review once I have finished crying.....

RAZORLAND! What an amazing series! Horde finished off the Razorland series with grit and pain and tears and joy and lessons learnt. Ann Aguirre's archival research and attention to detail is exemplary. The battle scenes, whoa! They did not disappoint. The ground assault battles and aftermath are so fully described I felt like I was there fighting along side Duece, slicing Freaks throats, ducking, weaving, stabbing, a blur of knives and blood a

This is a review for both Outpost and Horde. There are some spoilers, so read at your own risk.

I loved Enclave, the first book in the Razorland series, because it was an interesting and fresh take at the post-apocalyptic world with a very strong female protagonist and interesting supporting characters. So I really wanted to like the next two books in the series, I really did. Unfortunately, those books proved to be a huge disappointment, at least for me.
Oh, the world-building is excellent. Ann A
If we could give half points, I'd give this a 3.5. For me, it's just not quite a four. I LOVED Enclave and parts of Outpost .....Horde began promisingly enough. But in my opinion, with Horde, Aguirre took the easy way out too often. It's like she set these tremendous obstacles up for her characters and then didn't know where to go from there so she'd back out of them to wrap everything up nice and neat leading to her happy ever after.

Much of the book was spent describing the traveling between
Why bother with The Hunger Games when you have the amazing Razorland trilogy? Horde is the third and final book in this YA post-apocalyptic series, which has followed the journey of Deuce and Fade from living underground with a life expectancy of 25 years to discovering a whole different world above where people live to have wrinkles and grey hair. They have battled Freaks along the way, found new friends with Stalker and Tegan and even found a family to be a part of. Whatever you do please do n ...more
Ezinwanyi~the Impish Angel  (Oh My Shelves)
Ok. This was an ending I could live with. After Allegiant, I was really hesitant to read this one but thank you Ann Aguirre.

In this final book, the author gave us answers to questions that kept popping up during this journey. She gave us hope, and entertained us as Deuce stood up as the leader she was born to be. Deuce Oaks accepted her family, her love and her destiny and did what so many other settlements were afraid to do.

Stand up and fight back. Take that freak mutties! Some losses were real

Horde (Enclave) Finally tackling the last book in the series, I LOVED IT! Every flip of the page, made my heart beat faster and faster!Plot: This is the last book in the series, so if you haven’t made your way through the first two books, go and do it now. So, I loved how this plot divulged right to the action. After staying in Salvation for some time, their time is over. They go looking for help in which turns into this awesome journey and new discoveries. This part gave me major anxiety. I was ...more
3.5 stars. Horde is the ending of the Razorland trilogy. It is satisfying and it is a good ending. I have to say that the series started lukewarm for me; I was interested but not passionate about it. Elements about Enclave bothered me, which made me ambivalent about continuing. Something about the series made me want to keep going and I am glad that I did.

Horde is almost non stop action -- but told from Deuce's inner monologue. Readers familiar with Ann Aguirre's writing know that she tells her
Christina (A Reader of Fictions)
When I finished reading Enclave, I sat it aside, waiting to see how the rest of the series would go before putting it back on my shelves. Space in my collection is somewhat limited at the moment, unless I buy another bookshelf and I wasn’t sure whether I would want to revisit this series. Horde has earned the series a right to stay on my shelves. The Razorland trilogy is one of those rare instances where the series steadily improves over time, beginning pretty well and ending incredibly strongly ...more

There are few writers in the world.

Correction: there are too few good writers in the world.

Miss Aguirre, of course, is not one of the above. But I'm making this point because:

a.) About half way through, my head listed two likely ways of how this will go down:
