BEST ANN AGUIRRE BOOKS:
Here is a summary of 3 books from Ann Aguirre’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling Razorland Trilogy:
Enclave: This is a thrilling young adult novel surrounding 2 teenagers in an apocalyptic world, where they face dangers and feelings different to what they’ve always known. It is set in New York City, which has been destroyed by plague and war. As a result, most people have migrated to underground enclaves where the life expectancy is not above early twenties.
When Deuce reaches fifteen years old, she takes on her new role as a huntress and is paired with another teenage hunter called Fade, who used to live on the topside when he was young. The young boy and girl soon discover that an enclave adjacent to theirs has been decimated by Freaks or tunnel monsters. However, when they report their discovery, the elders ignore their warnings, and consequently, they are expelled from the enclave. The girl born in darkness must now do everything possible to survive in daylight (under the guidance of Fade’s earlier memories) in the ruins of a town whose population has reduced to few dangerous gangs.
Outpost: This is the second novel in the Razorland Trilogy. Deuce’s world has completely changed in this incredible sequel. While living in underground enclaves, she was considered as an adult. But, in the topside town called Salvation where they currently live, she is considered by the town folks as a brat in need of some serious training. The only thing that Deuce knows is fighting. She does not fit in with her fellow girls, and Fade isn’t helping the situation with his behavior either, as he distances himself from her.
Fade doesn’t want to be around Deuce anymore, even though her feelings towards him haven’t changed. Lonely and confused, she begins searching for a way out of her predicament. After some serious thought, she finally decides to sign up as a summer patrol (people who ensure that planters work in the field without danger). However, as she comes to realize, things have changed on the surface, the same way they did below the ground. The tunnel monsters/ freaks have grown way smarter than people expected. They are watching, waiting and planning their next move. They do not intend to let people in Salvation to survive. A girl like Deuce is what this town may need to turn back the tide.
Horde: This is the 3rd novel in the trilogy. The survival of Salvation is now up to Fade, Deuce, Tegan and Stalker, but the odds are against them. The monsters have surrounded the gates of the town, with no intention of leaving. They are all over attacking patrol, settlements and setting up scouts. Nothing like this has been seen in Salvation in centuries, and the humans seem to have forgotten how to stand up for themselves and fight unless Deuce leads them. With the survival of the whole humanity dependent on her, will Deuce lead the people to win the war? Who will be killed and who will survive?
