New York City has been decimated by war and plague, and most of civilization has migrated to underground enclaves, where life expectancy is no more than the early 20′s. When Deuce turns 15, she takes on her role as a Huntress, and is paired with Fade, a teenage Hunter who lived Topside as a young boy. When she and Fade discover that the neighboring enclave has been decimated by the tunnel monsters—or Freaks—who seem to be growing more organized, the elders refuse to listen to warnings. And when Deuce and Fade are exiled from the enclave, the girl born in darkness must survive in daylight, in the ruins of a city whose population has dwindled to a few dangerous gangs. As the two are guided by Fade’s long-ago memories, they face dangers, and feelings, unlike any they’ve ever known.
The Bookish Brunette thought:
Oh. My. God.
I mean really, what else is there?
Enclave was FANTASTIC like you can’t believe if you haven’t already read it! (WHY haven’t you read it?)
It seemed to me Enclave is a cross between The Hunger Games and the Chaos Walking series with maybe a little, teensy tiny bit of The Maze Runner thrown in the mix. Since I freaking LOVED all those books… Well, for lack of anything better- WIN.
Deuce was an amazing heroine! She is fierce, brave and completely confident in her role as a Huntress. She was flat out breath-taking, and probably my favorite heroine of the year!
Then there was Fade… Ahhhh, Fade.
I rarely quote in my reviews, but I MUST quote Fade here,
“I never belonged anywhere until I met you.”
MAJOR *SWOON* for Fade. I loved seeing Fade and Deuce together… then they are forced topside and they meet a few interesting people. I’m sorry, but when Stalker kisses Deuce in the woods… I almost, ALMOST forgot Fade. It was smokin’ hot.
I loved so many things about this book, but one thing just made it all round FIVE stilettos… there were zombies!!!! YES!
