I thought it was a really good story. You don't have to be a dystopian or sci-fi fan to love this book. The horrifying future that Ann Aguirre had por..Show More »trayed was so real and vivid in my mind. I have to say that I don't think the Author's focus was on the romance at all. She simply described how any teenage girl at that stage should feel.....confused and bewildered. However, I strongly recommend you NOT TO BUY THE AUDIOBOOK VERSION! I tried so hard to ignore the narrator's whiny voice but just couldn't. She made the whole thing extremly distracting I almost couldn't made it though the first half. Anyway, go buy the book. It's much worth it.
Outpost is action from start to finish. This book does not have a dull moment. There is a love triangle, zombie-like creatures, and family dynamics,..Show More » to name a few elements. The narrator was good, but the accents were a little inconsistent. At one point they sound like they are from Boston, the next like they are from the South. But that is a small complaint because overall it was great. The hard part is now waiting for the third book, Horde, to come out!
I like that Horde, the third and final book in the Razorland trilogy, ended properly! There were no loose ends (like the Delirium trilogy), no sudden ..Show More »or unpleasant surprises (like the Divergent trilogy), and no wishy-washy finales (like Sookie Stackhouse). That is not to say that there weren't any twists or surprises, but everything wrapped up nicely, without seeming false or colour-by-numbers.
Honestly, this wasn't my favourite YA series, but I did enjoy it and fans of Enclave and Outpost will absolutely LOVE it. Ann Aguirre did a great job of wrapping everything up in a satisfying way, and the epilogue was a nice touch.
