Jaime's Review of Outpost by Ann Aguirre

From Goodreads.

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 not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out. Deuce signs up to serve in the summer patrols—those who make sure the planters can work the fields without danger. It should be routine, but things have been changing on the surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks have grown smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it may take a girl like Deuce to turn back the tide.

Oh dear gawd Outpost was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved Enclave but I really think that Outpost was better! Ann’s writing and world building is just beautifully done. I love the addition of Topside and the new characters we get to me as well as our old favorites from Enclave. The story made some dramatic changes; like it didn’t seem as dark but I loved every minute of it.

 Deuce is an awesome character and I love that she sticks to her guns even when people try to change her. I also love Fade although there were some points in this story where I wanted to punch him, hard. And Tegan is coming into her own nicely she’s become one of my favorite characters. But on to my absolute favorite character in the book, Stalker, (yes most of you are probably scratching your heads). Stalker grows more than anyone in this story in my opinion. I liked him in Enclave but I am 100% in love with him now!!!! His humor and also his devotion to Deuce are admirable. Not that Fade doesn’t do that but, I see something special in 
Stalker. Something that Fade may not be able to give to Deuce.

Oh and the Freaks? They get really freaky in this book! We find out some interesting things about them.

 Like are they zombies? Or something else? Let me tell you what they are surprised the heck out of me. Good play Ms. Aguirre, good play! Oh and I’m now dying to get my hands on book 3. Like. Now! Ann if you need another Beta reader I’m your girl ;) 

I chose a passage, well there were a few actually bookmarked lol between Stalker and Deuce. Even though I love Fade. Stalkers passages seemed to stick out to me more. There are some blank parts because I didn’t want to be too spoilery.

My jaw dropped. Comfort? I didn’t expect that from him.

“Why would you---“ I couldn’t complete the question, couldn’t accuse him of being secretly glad __________________.

“If I ever win you,” He said, anger bright in his pale eyes, “it will be because you want me more. Not because he’s gone. I’m nobody’s second best.”

“I’m sorry,” I said miserably.

He put aside his fury as if it were a pair of shoes grown too small. “It’s all right. I understand.”
