This is the third book in the Razorland Trilogy. I believe there will be a fourth but it’s going to be from Tegan’s point of view. Anyway, this is the epic battle. Freaks vs. human and there are some casualties, some amazing feats and an ending that should not be missed!
I love how Deuce isn’t instantly successful with her ‘Company D’. She works hard to get help to defeat the freaks. The fights scenes are just as awesome as the other books. Their wild, intense and easy to follow. There are several deaths in here and yeah, it is totally sad but it makes the story feel more realistic. The pace is fantastic. There are short, sweet moments followed by long intense scenes and it really keeps the book moving. I had a hard time putting it down!
(SPOILER AHEAD) If the freaks are smart because they have that genetic memory thing and their lifespans are only about ten years, wouldn’t they have been smarter generations ago? This was a big point in the whole series and it seemed very…thin. Also I don’t understand why they went to Winterville to deal with the ‘inhabitants’? They’re not as smart as the muties/freaks so why not let them and the freaks/muties fight? It’ll reduce both enemy numbers. (SPOILER ENDS)
So there were some questions but they are far outweighed by how awesome Horde is. I love the twists, the unexpected help they receive. That final battle kept me glued to the pages. I couldn’t stop until I found out what happened to my favorite characters. There’s also some light, well done, romance.
Horde is another fantastic adventure in the Razorland Triology. Highly recommended!
Welcome back to the Razorland trilogy. Deuce, Fade, Tegan and Stalker have survived the infested cities and are now in a small town called Salvation. It’s protected by large walls that have kept the muties/freaks out but they’re getting smarter…
I love this world and the characters. There so much dark and it’s peppered with so much hope. The beginning is kind of slow moving for me. I found Deuce losing herself within the school of Salvation and it just doesn’t feel like her character. The flashbacks are also strange. They are just passages from the first book and don’t move the story along. Once Deuce joins the patrol to protect the fields things are filled with action. I love the fight scenes. Deuce is so graceful and awesome when she fights with her daggers. The romance issue between her and stalker and fade is perfectly done. It makes sense that she doesn’t understand the boys because she’s lived her whole life underground. Then we learn more about the muties/freaks and the whole ‘eat me’ thing is so freaking creepy! The ending is perfect. It gave closure to this book and set up a quest for the third and final book. I can’t wait to read it!
Outpost is another amazing book in the Razorland Trilogy.
Ann Aguirre has another epic series in The Razorland Trilogy!
Deuce comes of age in an underground colony called an enclave. There are three choices, become a builder, a breeder or a hunter. She's been dreaming of hunting down freaks and keeping the enclave safe. She's paired with Fade, a boy they found alone in the tunnels years ago. Together they discover the freaks, human zombie hybrids, are getting smarter. However, the higher powers of the enclave don't believe them. They are soon kicked out and must go to the surface where they discover everything she's been told has been a lie.
What an epic start to a new series! I love this unique, layered world the author created. She explained it wonderfully in satisfying mouthfuls. It shapes wonderfully complex characters. Deuce is so confused and trying to be strong. I instantly liked her. I rooted for her as well as the brooding Fade. From the underground to the surface this is a awesome journey about surviving but not losing one humanity. I've already ordered the second and third book in the series.
Whether you like young adult or not, Enclave is a must read!
This is the last book in the Dred Chronicles. Queen Dred, her lover Jael and a handful of Queenlanders remain on the prison ship. The ship is falling apart, Silence is trying to destroy them and there's only one choice left - breakout.
I think I'm running out of worlds to use for this series. Epic once again comes to mind. This is an awesome ending. There's growing love between Dred and Jael, crazy Silence, mutated rats, machines malfunctioning causing sickness, and yes, someone gets their tongue cut out. (That part was gross but well written). This isn't your typical sci fi romance. There's dark, gritty action with each tender kiss. We get to know the background of Silence and just how she ended up so nutty. And that ending was literally explosive.
I can't even pick a favorite book in the series, they're all fantastic. I think I'm having book withdrawal now that the series ended. This has to be made into a movie or series or something!
The Dred Chronicles is a sexy, dark sci fi that defines the word epic!
We are back in the dark, thrilling, imaginative world of Perdition! Havoc brings us to this space prison just as mercenary's arrive to 'clean up' the station. The Dred Queen with her mind reading abilities and Jael, her lover with healing abilities, are all that stands between Queenslanders and death.
You'd have to read the first book to understand what's going on. Luckily, the first book is freaking fantastic! Dread with her chain weapons is just as amazing and beautifully flawed in this book. Jael is opening up more, talking about his past and trying to get over the fact that he's not a monster. Their are interesting secondary characters from the first book that we get to know better, Tam, Mari, Ike, Vost, all really well written. The action is intense and awesome! There's more romance that really brings Dred and Jael closer. I love that Dred is as tough as him. She doesn't need a hero but it's good to have one as backup just in case things go wrong. And they do go very wrong. The ending is so action packed, I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to dig into the third book, Breakout.
Havoc is an absolutely epic, must read!
Perdition is a huge space ship that is converted into a prison ship. There are no guards, prisoners are left to fend for themselves and have created territories. Dred is the ruler of Queensland and Jael is the new recruit that has the unique ability to heal all wounds. Together they have to work against other, more violent, rulers of this prison ship.
One word description – EPIC! Yup, exclamation point and in all caps. This book is freaking epic! From the amazing details about the prison ship to all the characters that have their own personalities, this book is awesome. Dred is a bit of a mind reader and Jael has that healing ability, it’s unique. And everyone has a secret or two. There are no dull moments, a brief bit of romance and tons of sci fi goodness. I also like that it isn’t huge on the science fiction terms. No crazy gibberish about systems and stuff like that. It was easy to follow and really entertaining. Halfway through this book, I went and order the other two in the series (Havoc and Breakout). Yes, that good! And that ending! Edge of my seat kind of scene. I’m eagerly waiting for the next book to come via the mail.
Perdition is a must freaking read for anyone who likes science fiction and a bit of romance.
