A few weeks ago, I read and reviewed the dystopian novel Enclave by Ann Aguirre, and I absolutely loved it. It was dark, gritty, and, if it’s not too tacky to quote myself, it made “the world of The Hunger Games look like a romp through one of Mary Poppins’ magical paintings.” The main character, Deuce, was a wonderful example of a strong female character, and I’m eager to read the next book in this series, Outpost. The cover of Outpost was just released, and I’m so happy to share it with you right here!
I love how similar it is to Enclave‘s cover. (I really hate it when series cover designs change. It makes my bookshelves look weird.) I’m also intrigued by the blurb about Outpost on the author’s webpage (where you can also read the first two chapters for free), http://www.annaguirre.com/books/ya-novels/outpost/. I look forward to seeing how Deuce asserts herself in her new digs and what she’ll have to do to fight the Freaks that are getting smarter and more cunning. I’ll also admit that I’m a little anxious about her relationship with Fade and how Stalker is going to muck things up.
Outpost is set for a September 4th release. I know there’s a book trailer in the works, but I don’t know the details yet on when that will be available. If it’s anything like the trailer for Enclave, it’s sure to be creeptastic.
If you haven’t read Enclave yet, be sure to check it out as soon as possible. This is a great read for those Hunger Games fans who are looking for another great dystopian series to mezmerize them!
