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!
