The horde is coming.

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

this summer, the plan is to return to a bunch of YA series that i started and never finished for whatever reason. because it's important to have goals. and closure.

i have no idea why i paused for so long with this series, because i remember loving it, but pause i did. fortunately for me, unlike ilsa j. bick who makes you work to reorient yourself, aguirre does a good job gently reminding the reader who may have taken a couple of years off from the series of the key events from the earlier books

I have no words for how amazing this book is. Guys, you really have something to look forward to here.

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

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.)

This will forever be one of my favorite YA series. Dark, gritty, and all of the characters have my heart. I DON'T EVEN LIKE ZOMBIES!!!

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

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 to a

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

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

"When people stop writing down their stories, the soul of the world is lost."

—Morrow, Horde, P. 149

Temporary safety in the town of Salvation is only a memory as Deuce, Fade, Stalker, and Tegan hit the road in search of a settlement that might be willing to send reinforcements to stave off the Freaks when they attack. Salvation is at the mercy of thousands of these mutants until enough towns send men to help fight the enemy, and Deuce's convoy has little time to make that happen. As Salvation's

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

Well, that was a satisfying conclusion to a trilogy I've loved from the very beginning.  It came full-circle, wrapped up loose ends, answered questions that have plagued the reader for the duration of the series...yes, very satisfying indeed.

I'm going to keep this short for fear that anything I say will spoil things along the way.  Also, I hate series finales.  I usually put off reading the final book in a series until I just can't stand it anymore because I don't want to say goodbye to the worl

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

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.

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.

I can appreciate the author for making the heroine's journey to unify humans and become a leader being a tough one, but I really don't like (1) how the grave crisis is solved in the end so very easily, (2) a main character died and it's so damn predictable, looks like his death is being used as tear-jerker. ...more

Sweet lord, this was amazing. The best one for sure. I laughed, I cried, and I smiled. This book delivered ALL of the feels.

I felt like I was watching a war movie and it was incredible. With good reason because I read about how much research the author put into this book in the author's notes. Truly, I'm impressed.
Ann Aguirre won me over as a fan for life, so now I'm going to try and sort out my emotions.

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

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
