Review: Enclave (Razor land #1) by Ann Aguirre

Title: Enclave (Razor land #1)

Book Description:
WELCOME TO THE APOCALYPSE 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.

My Thoughts:

Do I fear Change? 
Or Do I fight for it?

              I wasn't expecting to enjoy this book, BOY! I was so wrong. I love every pages of it. This book is wonderful. It has everything that I wanted "Action, Romance, Zombies, Dystopic and Post Apocalyptic". I like the idea of Anne Aguirre of creating a world that is believable. Enclave is so cinematic, you feel like you are watching a movie in a detailed kind of way.This book will pump your adrenaline. It's action pack and the fighting scene is stellar.
             Enclave is a small underground city where survivors of the post-apocalyptic lives. It is dark, cold and dreary. Then there's the brats ( or All kids ) who goes through a ceremony where they will be assigned a name and job as a Builder, Breeder, or Hunter/Huntress. Deuce is the heroine in this book. She works as a huntress and scavenges for food and materials for the Enclave. You can really relate to her as a character. She is strong, smart and butt-kicking. Fade is Deuce's hunting partner; He is tough, mysterious and HOT. Both of them have ass-kicking lethal skills. There is also a brewing love triangle. 
             The story is gripping and it feels so real. Though, there were many unanswered questions about the world they live in and I hope book 2 will provide those answers . I can't wait what happens next! 

 Overall, I enjoyed Enclave and would recommend it. I look forward for Book 2. 
I give it 4 whales.
