Waiting on Wednesday: Outpost by Ann Aguirre

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine, spotlighting books that have not yet been released but are being greatly anticipated. Today, my pick under the category "Eeek, yay, a sequel that I am DYING to read" is the sequel to Enclave by Ann Aguirre: Outpost.

Deuce’s whole world has changed. Now living topside in a community called Salvation, she has a whole new set of problems. Down below, she was considered an adult, and she contributed to the whole. Now, topside, the people of Salvation think she’s a brat in need of training. She hates school, and she doesn’t fit in with the other girls. They’ve spent their lives learning to cook and sew–suitable woman’s work. Deuce only knows how to fight. To make matters worse, Fade keeps her at a distance, and the band of four has broken into fragments.

Stalker presses for a closer relationship, but Deuce sees him as a training partner, and she’s busy trying to find her place in Salvation. She refuses to accept that she’s wrong for being who she is, but tensions rise as she struggles against the status quo. 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.

Once she’s free from school for the year, Deuce pursues a chance to serve in the summer patrols–those responsible for making sure the growers and planters can work the fields without danger of Freak attack. It should have been routine, little fighting, but things have been changing on surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks are smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it will take a girl like Deuce to turn the tide.

OMGosh! Okay, I totally loved Enclave. Seriously. It was fantastic. It's definitely one of my favorite dystopians. One thing I'm really hoping for is more FadexDeuce! I looove Fade, and despite the synopsis I think there will definitely be some romance in this one! ;)

I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens next in this awesome world!!!

So what are YOU waiting on this week?



  1. Holy cow that cover is creepy! Sounds like a good book though. I'm going to have to add it to my TBR list! Thanks for sharing Mag! :)

    1. You really MUST read Enclave if you haven't! It's awesome!

  2. Sorry, but no. That's not the final cover. People are posting a prelim concept from the arc, but if it were final, it would be on my website. I haven't seen the final yet.

    1. Oops, I didn't realize! That's the one I saw on Goodreads, which is usually where I grab them for these things. I'll change it so it says not final. Sorry!!
