Waiting on Wednesday (7): Enclave


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Enclave (Razorland, #1)
by Ann Aguirre
Expected publication: April 12th 2011 by Feiwel & Friends
Synopsis taken from Goodreads

In Deuce's world, people earn the right to a name only if they survive their first fifteen years. By that point, each unnamed 'brat' has trained into one of three groups-Breeders, Builders, or Hunters, identifiable by the number of scars they bear on their arms.

Deuce has wanted to be a Huntress for as long as she can remember. As a Huntress, her purpose is clear--to brave the dangerous tunnels outside the enclave and bring back meat to feed the group while evading ferocious monsters known as Freaks. She's worked toward this goal her whole life, and nothing's going to stop her, not even a beautiful, brooding Hunter named Fade.

When the mysterious boy becomes her partner, Deuce's troubles are just beginning. Down below, deviation from the rules is punished swiftly and harshly, and Fade doesn't like following orders. At first she thinks he's crazy, but as death stalks their sanctuary, and it becomes clear the elders don't always know best, Deuce wonders if Fade might be telling the truth.

Her partner confuses her; she's never known a boy like him before, as prone to touching her gently as using his knives with feral grace. As Deuce's perception shifts, so does the balance in the constant battle for survival. The mindless Freaks, once considered a threat only due to their sheer numbers, show signs of cunning and strategy... but the elders refuse to heed any warnings. Despite imminent disaster, the enclave puts their faith in strictures and sacrifice instead. No matter how she tries, Deuce cannot stem the dark tide that carries her far from the only world she's ever known.
I don't know about you, but I think this book falls under the genre of dystopia! I just discovered this book this week! Doesn't it sound AHH-mazing?! :) You bet! I can't wait for it! Before I know, it will be here! I hope! There are so many dystopia books debuting this year! I'm so excited for them all!

So, what are you highly anticipating this Wednesday?


  1. This does sound really cool. I hadn't even heard of it. Thanks for the WoW.

    I'm dying to read Iron Witch this week if Amazon still plans on releasing the eBook at midnight tonight.

    Iron Witch? I want to read that one too! I'm crossing my fingers for you! *__*
