Publisher's Summary

Deuce’s whole world has changed. Down below, she was considered an adult. Now, topside in a town called Salvation, she’s a brat in need of training in the eyes of the townsfolk. She doesn’t fit in with the other girls: Deuce only knows how to fight. To make matters worse, her Hunter partner, Fade, keeps Deuce at a distance. 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.
Deuce signs up to serve in the summer patrols - those who make sure the planters can work the fields without danger. It should be routine, but things have been changing on the surface, just as they did below ground.
The Freaks have grown smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it may take a girl like Deuce to turn back the tide.

Narrator Bad // Book So-So

There are so many great reviews for this book and I feel kinda alone on this one so bare with me. Outpost had great potential, and there are times it really lived up to it, and times I wanted to fast forward. Once I was at the middle of this book it was a little bit...ummm...boring? I don't know it just wasn't what I expected.

Seeing that Deuce lived underground in a society that made up it's own rules and brainwashed it's people I was excited to see her paradigm shift. It felt as though it was going to be reminiscent of Plateo's "The Cave." It wasn't. The most she wondered about was why you celebrated birthdays and "who says I cant wear pants!" All of her "paradigm shifts" were quite shallow.

Romance is weak and there is a pointless love triangle once again.

The book starts to redeem itself towards the end and leaves you with quite the cliffhanger. I think the final installment in this series has the setup to be the best yet. Here's to hoping!

OH! Most importantly the narrator is bad. I honestly wonder if I would have felt completely different about this book had I read it instead...

Loved the First Book, This One is Even Better!

Outpost is action from start to finish. This book does not have a dull moment. There is a love triangle, zombie-like creatures, and family dynamics, to name a few elements. The narrator was good, but the accents were a little inconsistent. At one point they sound like they are from Boston, the next like they are from the South. But that is a small complaint because overall it was great. The hard part is now waiting for the third book, Horde, to come out!
