Enclave by Anne Aguirre, a Bookanista Review

Enclave (Razorland, #1)

From Goodreads:
New York City has been decimated by war and plague, and most of civilization has migrated to underground enclaves, where life expectancy is no more than the early 20's. When Deuce turns 15, she takes on her role as a Huntress, and is paired with Fade, a teenage Hunter who lived Topside as a young boy. When she and Fade discover that the neighboring enclave has been decimated by the tunnel monsters—or Freaks—who seem to be growing more organized, the elders refuse to listen to warnings. And when Deuce and Fade are exiled from the enclave, the girl born in darkness must survive in daylight, in the ruins of a city whose population has dwindled to a few dangerous gangs. As the two are guided by Fade’s long-ago memories, they face dangers, and feelings, unlike any they’ve ever known.
From Me:
I love a good post-apocalyptic novel, and this one definitely kept me entertained. Aguirre tells the story of Deuce, a Huntress whose adventure begins in the underground world she has always called home. Here, she defends her colony from zombie-like creatures called Freaks with the help of her hunting partner, Fade. The duo’s journey moves topside to the skeletal remains of New York City, now ruled by rival gangs. Guys, this is survival, and then more survival, and then more survival. Lots of action in a well-drawn world. Aguirre has a knack for keeping the pace charging along. Deuce is a sturdy, likeable heroine who had me cheering for her more and more as the story progressed. This is well-crafted adventure that will please fans of post-apocalyptic tales.
