Horde / Ann Aguirre.
Booklist Reviews 2013 November #2
The settlements must unite to survive the newly cunning Freak horde in this concluding volume of the Razorland Trilogy (after Outpost, 2012). Deuce grows from fierce warrior to inspiring leader as she travels between settlements, recruiting fighters to join her war band. Though Fade is still traumatized from his time in captivity, Stalker is cold after Deuce's rejection, and Tegan is more healer than hunter, they are with her until the end. Deuce's Company D harries the enemy, but an overture from an evolved, self-aware tribe of Freaks changes everything. This is a suspenseful, romantic, and deeply satisfying finale, with heartbreak and happiness in equal measure. Aguirre's fans will be pleased. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews.
Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Spring
Deuce's skills from her Huntress days come in handy when a horde of mutant "Freaks" descends upon the humans of her post-apocalyptic world, but trusting some of the enemy turns out to be a worthwhile risk. Relationships, including Deuce's romance with Fade, soften a bloody tale; as in previous compelling installments, readers should suspend disbelief for Deuce's background-belying vocabulary and emotional intelligence.
