ARC reviewed by Jessica for Book Sake.

When I started reading this one I was a little lost. Diving right into the characters new lives in Salvation confused me a bit – but then it went into some explanations and it cleared things up quickly. In my review for Enclave, the first book in the series, I mentioned Aguirre’s talent at world-building, as well as character-building, and it is still evident in Outpost. She’s added on more dimensions to the main characters without losing the essence that I loved about each of them in the first story. We get to know many new characters and each of those felt so real and true to this new town that it was easy to fall into.

The Freaks are still to be feared and Aguirre gives us even more reasons to fear them. She also holds onto the fact that people often do stupid and rash things when under stress. I didn’t foresee where many parts of this book where going and that is one of the things I absolutely love about this series, it’s ability to surprise me, but to still have everything played out realistically. I can’t wait to read more!
