"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.

You know this is just one of those types of books that you can not put down. I just love dystopian books. Enclave had everything you could want in a book. Lots of kick butt fighting, a love that no one talks about, and lots of running. I was having a hard time catching my breathe reading this book. So much was going on the my mind was reeling. I felt the characters fear, strength, and hope to find a new place.

The characters were totally awesome. Deuce and Fade were great characters I can literally feel in my heart. I love the whole plot line. The plot build up was awesome. If anything, it kept you entertain at every twist and turn. I think the way the whole society was put together was good. I enjoyed learning about their rules and how things went. I love where plot lines are not only unique but very attention grabbing.

Enclave left me speechless. I adored reading every minute of it. It is a action-packed, great dystopian book that I love to see as a movie.  Plus, this book has zombies and  who couldn't love that?

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!
