Enclave | Richland Library Skip to content


This book is about a post apocalyptic world, where all of the sane people live below ground, away from the "harmful sun and rain" that will burn your skin off, and leave nothing more than bones, and you are lucky to live to 25. Rigid rules surround the "enclaves" where the people live: you only have a name if you live to 15, when you reach 15 you are either a Breeder, a Builder, or a Hunter, any artifacts from the old world must be turned in, otherwise you are banished from the enclave, and are left to fend for yourself - and to battle the Freaks. The Freaks are mindless, ferocious monsters, and if one of them dies, they are eaten by another Freak. But suddenly the Freaks are developing cunning, and strategies never seen before by the enclaves. Deuce and Fade, the main characters, investigate, and try to warn the elders of the enclave of this, but to no avail. Suddenly a turn of events sends Deuce and Fade topside, where all of the things Deuce has been taught are contradicted. Perceptions change, and Deuce tries to absorb that all she's ever known, is lost...

This was actually a better book than I thought it was going to be. When I bought the book, it had "recommended for people who like the Hunger Games" I haven't read the Huger Games yet, because I heard its a sad book, so I was like, 'No, this is gonna be a bad book, because it said that. But I read it anyways, and I liked it. Its not at all sad, and was definitely well written. Not enough to keep you on the edge of your seat, and reading until 4 am, but pretty good. I will say that I can't wait for the sequel!
