This is a book filled with mystery and romance. It's sort of like a zombie book, except the zombies are called "Freaks" and all the people live in an Enclave. In this enclave, there are only three jobs. Breeders (who take care of the "brats" and make babies), Builders (who repair things and make things) and Hunters (who protect the city from "freaks" and hunt for meat in the tunnels).

I actually enjoyed this book. I avoided it for a long time because I thought it was going to be over the top filled with romance but it wasn’t too over board. I like Deuce’s way of thinking. She is strong and not overly wimpy. Fade’s character is more mysterious and just different. There is another book coming out in the series called Outpost. If you look at the website you can read two chapters of Out post as well as Enclave. Overall this book was pretty good.

When the world ended, the people left behind moved underground. Now they survive in barricaded enclaves below the streets, focused on three simple things: breeding, building, and hunting. When they turn sixteen, kids cease to be nameless brats and become working members of this desperate society. Deuce becomes a Huntress, specially trained to find food outside the enclave—and to fight the human-like, flesh-eating Freaks who roam the abandoned tunnels and sewers. Partnered with the enigmatic Fade, who came to the enclave as a young boy having survived on his own, Deuce begins to suspect that the Freaks are no longer the mindless monsters they used to be—they’re getting smarter. But the enclave elders dismiss Deuce’s reports, and Deuce is banished to keep her rumors from spreading. Unexpectedly, Fade agrees to go with Deuce. He claims he once lived Topside, and that the world above is not the blighted ruin the elders say it is. So Deuce leaves the only world she’s ever known for a whole new set of dangers in a world where nothing is as it seems. Enclave is the first of a planned trilogy and like The Hunger Games, it’s a page-turner with the first gritty volume hinting at more chaos to come.

This book condones the rape of one of it’s characters and blames the victim for the attack. I don’t care for the messages it instills, not to mention the whole thing is so poorly written it makes Twilight look like fine Literature.
