Woohoo! Good Luck!

 

Where has all the time gone....

Gracious! Has it really been that long since I’ve posted?!

A lot has happened in the last few months. The good news — Electric Night is nearly ready to be published! There has been some production delays, but I’m hoping to release the book soon. Yay!

 

I’ve also decided what book I will write next…think Academy of Assassins. I’m really excited about the idea. Then, if I have enough time, I’m going to try and release a second Raven Investigation book this year. Woohoo!

 

Unfortunately, I recently lost two cats within a month of each other. It’s been hard on me, since I’ve had both cats for fifteen plus years. Remarkably, both of them were over twenty years old, so they’ve lived a full life.

Below was their favorite spot in the house. It’s nice to know they’re probably still sharing a cat bed wherever they are…

Have you read anything good lately? I could use a distraction…

DESCRIPTION:

Deuce’s whole world has changed. Down below, she was considered an adult. Now, topside in a town called Salvation, she’s a brat in need of training in the eyes of the townsfolk. She doesn’t fit in with the other girls: Deuce only knows how to fight.

 

To make matters worse, her Hunter partner, Fade, keeps Deuce at a distance. Her feelings for Fade haven’t changed, but he seems not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out.

 

Deuce signs up to serve in the summer patrols—those who make sure the planters can work the fields without danger. It should be routine, but things have been changing on the surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks have grown smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it may take a girl like Deuce to turn back the tide.

 

 

REVIEW:

I sat down and devoured this book in one sitting. Outpost began right where Enclave left off. The kids had reached Salvation, but the town was nothing like any of them expected. People were lax, compliant, and even more shameful, they didn’t even know how to fight. To make matters worse, the freaks were acting different. Smarter. More dangerous. Because she was a teenager, the townspeople dismissed Deuce’s warnings. It doesn’t matter that she’d long ago earned her scars and became an adult. And maybe even more devastating was Fade’s indifference toward her. Salvation was the last thing she’d call the town.

 

Desperate for a way out, Deuce jumped at the opportunity to be outside the wall of Salvation. She would fight and protect the farmers from the freaks. Only, things went wrong from the start, and the townspeople started grumbling…mainly about Deuce and her unwomanly quest to fight. They blame her for the recent unrest and want her gone. As tensions rose and the freaks became increasingly more violent, Deuce will risk everything to protect her friends and the people of Salvation.

 

My favorite part of this series was the unique world building. Ann Aguirre added just enough backstory and setting to make the world feel devastatingly real. I was immediately sucked into Deuce’s life. She’d lost everything and came out stronger. But it’s her vulnerability, her emotions, that made me ache for Deuce. She came from a life where emotions were a weakness. The more time she spent with Fade, the more he left her on edge, mixed her up. Made her crave more. As she faced her uncertain future, Deuce must make decisions that could destroy those fragile emotions and any future she’d hoped to create in Salvation. The beautiful writing, engaging characters, and the superb action shot this dystopian series to the crowded space on my keeper shelf. I can’t wait for book three, Horde! Warning: This book ended on a cliffhanger.
