Pretty good - I did like the character development but I found her constaintly repeating "am I a hunter or a girl" annoying.

I was quite impressed by this sequel! Ann Aguirre never fails to surprise me with the depth her stories and characters delve into! A definite recommendation!

I love this book because I still love the main character. Having said that, this one introduced a few things that felt forced. After experiencing the Enclave (and topside in the city) The Outpost feels like something you've read before, rather than something new. And the development of Deuce and Fade (and several of the other characters) feels a bit stilted, which disappointed me. I will definitely keep reading the series, but I am hoping for more.
**spoiler!!**
The ending disappointed me the most. Fade (as a character) felt completely disingenuous to his previous self, and the jealousy thing seemed forced. For the record, I hate love triangles, and so I just cringe when those elements are introduced, or dragged out to their bitter ends. Also, trying to "reunite" the crew to leave also felt a bit forced, rather than letter the various characters heal or change (Tegan felt at home in the settlement, but still left at a moment's notice, which I felt was odd).

dammit! cant u cancel ur hold! do it! ahh!

While Outpost was ultimately enjoyable, I felt that Ann Aguirre was trying a little too hard to get onto the bestseller list. The plot was decent; I could still relate to Deuce fairly well, but there were a lot of things that just felt like they were straight out of a bad Hunger Games fanfiction. (Namely the "romantic" scenes. Those made me really uncomfortable). And I agree; I feel like she's going to kill off ALL of the likable characters. Even though I'm curious about what will happen to the little 'crew', I have no desire whatsoever to read Horde whenever it comes out. From the viewpoint of a writer, there were a number of things that were almost insufferable; at several points I felt as if I had to slog through all of the "blabbity-blah". There were quite a few things that should have been explained, but were not. There were a few other things which I don't care to point out, as I think it may boil down to my personal preference. Overall, I was thoroughly disappointed. It definitely did NOT measure up to the standard that the first book set.

SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK

okay, i reallllly didn't like the part where Longshot died. i feel like the author is trying to kill of the good characters. i mean, first she kills off the enclave, and now Longshot, but even then, what's up with Fade?! she was being a total weirdo, and then he wants to go along with them like everything is like it was! even though i didn't like the ending, though, i liked the book overall. it was full of little twists buried deep where you couldn't really see them coming.....or maybe that was just me. anyways, i cannot wait for the third book.

I think the reason I keep continuing with this series is because it's about a zombie (or I guess mutants now) type of dystopian world and we don't see much of that. But if we did, I don't think I'd like this story very much. The protagonist, although I admire her ability and spirit, I don't really like all that much. And even the boys and the love triangle doesn't really intrigue me. But I'm continuing to read because I just want to know what happens to her and the freaks, and alright, maybe a bit with the boys (although we all know, she'll probably end up with fade :P).

this book is awesome. This novel is action packed, full of high emotions, there is death, despair, desperation, prejudice and romance, the romance is important to the plot, but it doesn't take over the adventure and the danger that permeates the daily parts of living in Aguirre's world. All in all, I like this book a better then Enclave. Can't wait for book 3 as I am dying to know what happens next!!! Believe me when I say you will not be disappointed in Outpost!!

Deuce's whole world has changed. Not only is she the odd one out in the ultra-conservative town of Salvation, being far from a feminine young lady a girl ought to be, but her hunting partner Fade is keeping her at a distance. Her feelings for Fade haven't changed, but his cold attitude confuses and hurts her. Frustrated, Deuce jumps at the chance to join the summer patrol, protecting the planters from the Freaks. But the Freaks are changing, watching, waiting and becoming smarter and smarter as the days pass. Salvation can't survive for much longer, and it may take a girl just like Deuce to save them all.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: The Freak encampment was enough to make me queasy and violence doesn't often bother me.

Sexual Content: LOTS of kissing and "petting". Also there was an attempted rape.
