Ahh loved it. It isn't as fast paced as Enclave - but just as good. The slower pace allowed for a lot more terrifying information to be reviled.

Full Review:

Creeptastick! Outpost was everything I loved about Enclave and more; Deuce's story has taken a drastic turn and like always she is willing to fight for her place... even if Salvation is a man's world.

Salvation is a very different place for Deuce; she has a family that loves her, food, clothes and safety - but girls like her don't really fit in. Salvation isn't a bad place, it's just that everyone has their place and Deuce's doesn't involve protecting the community - they want her inside cooking and cleaning. Deuce is going stir crazy, the only free time she gets is when she sneaks out at night to spar with Stalker. When Deuce signs up to help with the summer patrols, some of the men aren't too happy, in true Deuce fashion she will show them where she belongs.

Patrols are basically just guards for the planters, not a lot of action but at least Deuce will get some much needed time outside of Salvation. When odd things start to happen the group decides to set up an outpost near the fields - Deuce has some ideas about what is happening, but not many people are willing to listen, especially when she is the one being blamed for the way the freaks are acting.

Outpost leads us down this twisted path and when we reach the end we know one thing for sure - the freaks are evolving and the horde is coming for Salvation. Seriously, this is where they story will blow your mind; I can't wait to learn how this is occurring and if Deuce, her family and friends will survive. Secondary stories in series tend to be my favorite; I loved the fast paced trill of Enclave, but Outpost slowed things down and gave me more of the character relations and world building that I long for; then BAM, we are right back into a fast paced action packed novel.
