Book Description

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.




Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8-10-In Aquirre's sequel (2012) to Enclave (2011, both Feiwel & Friends), Deuce is back. This time, she's above ground in the "safe" community of Salvation with the remnants of her cohorts, Fade, Tegan, and Stalker. Deuce is very much an outsider in this new society where there are prescribed rules of how men and women should behave and there is no role for a female hunter. Deuce continues her sexual awakening as her feelings for Fade become more serious and are reciprocated. There are many people in her camp, including the two who have taken her in and treat her as their own, but the Freaks are an increasing danger. Emily Bauer narrates from Deuce's point of view, and she perfectly conveys the girl's frustration and confusion. She gives the numerous characters distinct voices. Enough background information is provided so that listeners need not be familiar with the previous book. The lack of a final resolution ensures that another book in this dystopian series is on the way. For fans of "The Hunger Games" series and Veronica Roth's "Divergent" series.-Edie Ching, University of Maryland, College Parkα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

In this sequel to Enclave (2011), months have passed since Deuce and her band of survivors joined Salvation, a fortified settlement in the middle of Freak-infested land. While Tegan, Fade, and Stalker find helpful community roles, Deuce struggles to adjust to life where, as a female, she is forbidden from fighting. When the Freaks evolve into more cunning foes, however, Deuce’s superior combat skills are instrumental in establishing an outpost to protect the town. Despite its heavy focus on Deuce’s emotional development, including the love triangle of which she is unwittingly the center, this postapocalyptic thriller also delivers gripping suspense and bloody violence. A must-read for fans. Grades 9-12. --Krista Hutley

4.0 out of 5 stars Different from Enclave, Equally Amazing September 28, 2012
By anaavu
Format:Hardcover
This probably sounds redundant because everyone's Outpost reviews are starting with this, but the most important you should get out of this review is that its plot is very unlike Enclave. Whereas Enclave was all about surviving in harsh environments, walking until your whole body felt like it would fall over any second, and fighting for dear life; Outpost focuses on the relationships between characters, emotional development of the teenagers, and learning more about the enemy.

Deuce, Fade, Tegan and Stalker has finally found a place that (seems to be) safe and they are relieved to be rid of the danger of Freaks, but there are problems of a different kind at Salvation. For one, Deuce and Fade are so different from the teens here, there are constantly teased and ridiculed. Girls are expected to cook and sew and wear pretty dresses here, and Deuce cannot tolerate these rules. She joins the summer patrols to protect the growers only to be threatened for indecent activities. She does find a family for the first time in her life when she is taken in by a loving and understanding couple - it is here she learns tenderness and devotion and the meaning of love.

Once she joins the Outpost to protect the town's crops from the Freaks, Deuce stars noticing strange things such as fire being stolen from the campsite, and she realizes what this means - the Freaks are growing sneaky and more intelligent and they seem to have a personal grudge against the humans! Nobody listens to her, and eventually, her dear Fade and his tent-mate are taken from the campsite to a giant settlement of Freaks and only Deuce and Stalker can save them.

Outpost's pace is a lot slower than Enclave and most dystopians I have read, but I suppose that's what makes this book so unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Sequel Leaves You Screaming for More! August 24, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When Enclave by Ann Aguirre ended, we found Deuce and Fade Topside- aboveground after living underground in the Enclave all their lives. It was a change that sent the series into a completely different direction, and it injected more surprises and excitement into Outpost than you can imagine!

Deuce, Fade, Tegan, and Stalker were taken in by the people of Sanctuary, but they certainly weren't accepted by everyone immediately. Given to different foster parents, they found themselves suddenly immersed in a society that had survived within tall walls and relatively removed from the Freaks who roamed the countryside. They almost never came face to face with the Freaks, animal-like humanoids with terrifying teeth and claws, and they certainly couldn't defend themselves against them. Deuce and the others were well-trained in Freak combat, but Sanctuary saw them as children, not the lethal hunters they actually were. Forced to go to school and act like proper boys and girls, Deuce and the others struggle to fit into Sanctuary.

When the crops are destroyed by the Freaks, it becomes clear they are no longer mindless roaming monsters with no intellect. After a couple of calculated attacks, Sanctuary is forced to acknowledge that the Freaks are getting smarter and Sanctuary is in danger. When Deuce, Fade, and Stalker offer to set up an outpost to protect the crops, the rest of the town is shamed into sending adults with them. Leaving the walls is terrifying for the people of Sanctuary, but so is starving through the winter with no crops to eat. Once they establish the outpost, however, it becomes clear the situation with the Freaks has escalated to a point that leaves Sanctuary vulnerable.

3.0 out of 5 stars The ending saved it September 4, 2012
By BookY
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading Enclave earlier this year (a total adrenaline rush!) and was excited to dig into the sequel. Imagine my disappointment then, as I neared the halfway point of the book and found myself a little. . . bored.

What went wrong? For one thing, there are certain elements in the book that are so heavily repetitious to the point of being tiresome. Deuce is a huntress. Deuce is different. Only the strong survive. These things are mentioned over and over and over. Sometimes with paragraphs worth of examples. Like I said, tiresome. Another thing I didn't like was the whole Fade-Deuce-Stalker thing. I didn't mind it in Enclave, but the way parts of it played out here left much to be desired. It felt a little corny and dragged the book down.

BUT. Towards the end of the book, there is a part -- a part that made everything up to that point completely worth it. My jaw dropped. My eyes popped. It was a total holy s#%t!! moment. (love those!) Things definitely pick up in the ending portion of the book and fortunately, it wasn't too little too late. I'll be reading the next one for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Butt-Kicking Action! August 30, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Sequels always make me squeamish. You never know if it's going to be an utter waste of your time as a lot of authors have that one perfect novel, and then *poof* that was it. So the million dollar question: Did Outpost actually live up to Enclave? Luckily, I can say with total honesty and no let-me-try-to-be-nice-review, when I say it didn't just live up to the first novel. Outpost, without a certainty, surpassed Enclave from one end to the other!

Outpost, and boy do I love this, starts right off with no major backtrack from the author. The first page literally has an edge to it that makes you sit up and take notice. The whole group has finally made it to Salvation, a small town bordered by wooden walls to protect the inhabitants. But these four teens have a lot on their plates in learning how to be "perfect citizens," and get along with their foster parents. For Deuce, the whole town is completely alien to her in its concepts. It's taboo for her to wear her hunter gear, and instead has to wear dresses with ribbons in her hair, go to school with the other children, and ultimately repress her inner nature to protect. But all that comes to a head as Freaks begin to come out of the woodworks, literally. And what's worse is that these freaks, as Deuce noted previously in the tunnels of her enclave, seem to show signs of intelligence. Worse still is the fact that they seem to be thriving, learning new stalking skills, and show a definite sign of waiting for the perfect moment to kill. Deuce realizes quickly that the town is in immediate danger, and needs someone to rise up to protect the family she has come to love. And who better to do that than a huntress?

Outpost was utterly fantastic. I cannot praise it enough!
