This book is all about taking risks and making life worth it even though it may be hard. Plus its all right to have a softer side to yourself. Even if you think its totally unnecessary. I loved this book and I can't wait to read the next book. I loved the romance although It made me a little jealous because I will never have a boy say I will fight for you not only when its easy but all the time. The sentence just fit in to the chapter. And now a short summary of the main parts of the book:

In the first couple of chapters it goes to say that Salvation really needed help so Deuce and Fade and Stalker make a point of having the town keep a permanent guard on the crops and to help the Growers as they tend to the field. For a while it worked, but the disaster struck the guards. Two of the men were taken by the Freaks and one of them was Fade. Deuce immediately say's that she has to go and find him no matter what.

When she brings him back she thinks that everything is fine. Everything can go back to normal, or as normal as it ever was. But boy was she wrong. Fade WAS captured and saved but along the way he lost part of his soul. Fade had to watch as another solider-the other one that was captured-get clawed up and sliced up then shoved in a bag. Not to mention the fact that he was beaten many times. And now he doesn't want anything to do with Deuce. He doesn't have any idea that he is hurting her, badly.

Journey into this book as you realize that sometimes its ok to be weak. ( )

At the end of “Enclave,” Deuce, Fade, Tegan and Stalker had survived their time in the ruins, and battles with Freaks (zombie-like characters). Rescued by a passing villager on a trade run, they were taken to a small outpost called Salvation. Eager to forget her past, Tegan blended in well, while Deuce, Fade and Stalker found everyday village life constricting and dull after their time in the wilderness.

I thought this book was amazing. If you like Hunger Games you will love this series. It starts with Enclave http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7137327-enclave This is the second in the series and there will be more to come. It has a great female lead, lots of action and a little steam. It is rated young adult, but can withstand adult reading for sure! ( )

The characters really developed in the second novel, although the setting was still largely implausible. ( )
  whitebalcony | Jun 30, 2014 |
Deuce and her friends have made it to Salvation, and are at least temporarily safe from the bloodthirsty Freaks. But considered a child by the townspeople, and forbidden from fighting because of her gender, can Deuce adjust to life without being a Huntress?

An omnipresent feeling of danger permeates this sequel to Enclave. The Freaks remain disturbing enemies, with plenty of brutal, bloody fights to provide pulse-raising action. Deuce's expanding ability to understand her own feelings and her connections with Tegan, Fade, and Stalker form the emotional core of the book, and her fumbling attempts to figure out where she fits into the town of Salvation are believable.
