Booklist Reviews 2012 November #1

In this sequel to Enclave (2011), months have passed since Deuce and her band of survivors joined Salvation, a fortified settlement in the middle of Freak-infested land. While Tegan, Fade, and Stalker find helpful community roles, Deuce struggles to adjust to life where, as a female, she is forbidden from fighting. When the Freaks evolve into more cunning foes, however, Deuce's superior combat skills are instrumental in establishing an outpost to protect the town. Despite its heavy focus on Deuce's emotional development, including the love triangle of which she is unwittingly the center, this postapocalyptic thriller also delivers gripping suspense and bloody violence. A must-read for fans. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Spring

Deuce ([cf2]Enclave[cf1]), raised in a primitive and violent society underground, struggles to fit into the gentler but more constraining Salvation. She must now defy this settlement's gender roles to fight against the mutant Freaks. Minimally educated Deuce's narration is unrealistically articulate, but readers will fully enjoy the well-paced action made compelling by complex relationships and characters' ever-present fear.
