Definition of enclave: A distinctly bounded area enclosed within a larger unit
If you enjoyed The Hunger Games series you may find this book is one for you. It starts with a group of young people living a hard life in an enclave underground. The enclave has its own rules for survival where everyone has a job to perform. Deuce and Fade are both trained hunters who provide food for everyone to eat and defend the enclave against the freaks; zombie-like monsters who roam underground. One day they find themselves expelled from their home and doomed to go Topside – what will they find, what will they do, and will it be safe?
Ann Aguirre is an American author who, amongst many other things, loves action movies and Dr Who. She wrote this futuristic book following some research which included reading an article about science and zombie attacks if there was to be a battle between zombies and the living, who would win? and thinking back to what happened after Hurricane Katrina.
I found it very easy to read and now I can’t wait to read the next in the Razorland trilogy called Outpost. The third and final book Horde, will be published later this year.
