Outpost Author Ann AguirDeuce’s whole world has changedDown 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 fightTo make matters worse her Hunter this three star rating should not be a mark against this book; i am just giving it a three because i liked it slightly less than enclave to which i gave four stars and that is the way i do math and of course the first book in a series is usually the best new characters new setting exciting world building; everything is designed to reel you in and make you want this second book is concerned with character development and probably upon a re read i will like this one just as much as i liked enclave once i can see the bigger picturebecause this story is important it is no longer about deuce's struggle to survive but her struggle to adaptdeuce has come out from the underground from her rigidly structured social system where survival from the freaks was ensured by designating certain highly specialized roles to its members because this is dystopian YA and we have to have our factions right and her role was a huntress and she is oh so very good at the fighting but now she is aboveground in a protected township with people who have formed a society that is recognizable to the reader these people have managed to form a true community despite the threat of the monsters at their doorand deuce is learning that her old way of thinking just doesn't apply herethis is a reflective book than enclaveone where deuce is given the space to consider her past actions and develop emotional attachments that just weren't possible in her underground life don't worry there are still plenty of action scenes and they are great but they are just not the focus as they were in the first bookit is about adaptive morality and the ways in which people respond to threats and the lengths they will go to survive but also about forgiveness empathy and understanding how where people have come from defines their behavior once distanced from her enclave and after meeting fade stalker tegan and now these people in salvation deuce spends much of this book dealing with the messy intrusion of emotions that go against her training as an impassive huntress but which will ultimately make her better euipped not just to survive but to liveUntil tonight I had thought of her only as someone giving me a place to stay out of obligation out of charity I hadn't known she cared Why would she I wasn't a proper girl nobody she'd have chosen for her kinAnd yet her regard was unmistakable; she had been worried about me I didn't think anybody ever had been before I was a Huntress so if I went out and died then I had done my jobshe is learning how to become receptive to emotional concerns that were not part of her training and it is difficult to shake her pastThe enclave had its rules and didn't permit bonds to form between offspring and parents For the first time I almost understood what a loss Fade had suffered because he could remember both of hisit is that almost that kills me oofasome uick notes about stalker i know a lot of people are enraged that he is a leg on this love triangle because of his past and what he and his gang did to girls and i am not one to give a thumbs up to a rapist but context is everything isn't it we love deuce because she is fierce and independent but it's not like her past doesn't have some black marks and she acknowledges this as she makes stalker's case for himit was hard for me to blame him when he hadn't been taught otherwise The things I'd done on the elder's orders filled me with hot shame now I had killed an innocent man as a test of loyalty and I'd let them murder a brat in cold blood My own hands weren't clean Maybe Tegan's were; and she'd never hurt anyone who didn't deserve it I couldn't help what I'd done before I learned it was wrong I could only do better in the future And the same held true for Stalker whether anybody else believed it or not Whether he could rise above the person he'd been in the gangs well that rested suarely in his own handsi can't help but think that this is an authorial response to the stalker hatred deuce does this a lot in this book; she never justifies what stalker did or makes apologies for him but in her new home she is able to understand and become sympathetic and understanding to different situational necessities the things we do to survive when we don't know the whole story and the only reality is the day to day struggle to stay alive and ensure the future of humanity which is a pretty big battle for a buncha teenagers yeah her people cast out the sick and injured to die and bred the useless attractive people simply because they seemed to have no other purpose that's not much better thank what stalker and the wolves did and she realizes it even if tegan doesn'tthis is a rather long passage so i am putting it in a spoiler but i don't think it is technically a spoiler for anything if you have read the first bookview spoiler She went on Anyway I just didn't want you to think I'd forgotten what we talked about Or the fact that I wouldn't even be here if it wasn't for youFade too If he hadn't carried her most of the way through the wilderness Tegan wouldn't have survived Stalker had taken a turn too but I doubted she cared to be reminded that she owed him even a small portion of her gratitude On the scales between them it was inadeuate for what she'd endured with the Wolves Disuiet shivered through me In Tegan's place I would've fought until I died Nobody would've touched me while I still drew breath so there wouldn't have been any unborn brats to loseyet I would've died Her path of uieter resistance led to survival through suffering Tegan wasn't a Huntress so according to enclave rules she would've likely been a Breeder if we'd found her because as Stalker had judged she had no skills and no visible defects Yet in the enclave Breeders didn't fight their roles Tegan had That meant her mother had taught her that she didn't have to bear young for the benefit of the group Such freedom seemed foreignand irresponsible Down below no one ever hinted that my own desires could be important than the good of the whole But that didn't make Tegan mistaken; it meant the Wolves punished her And that I did believe was wrong So far as I could tell nobody had invented the perfect system and it was awful to hurt people who disagreed with you The enclave had done it too hide spoiler
