Outpost
Outpost - Ann Aguirre

Picks up where Enclave left off. Deuce and the gang now live in Salvation. Salvation is a completely different place from where she grew up. I thought Salvation was also a dark, depressing place. I could argue its even worse since they have traditional gender roles and anyone who is outside that proscribed roll is treated badly.
I did like how Deuce was willing to try to learn and fit in. She was loved and accepted, just as she was, by her foster family. By the end, she did find her place, but events happened and this ended in a cliffhanger. I have to decide if I want to read book 3. It's been dark and depressing and I'm not sure I will be in the right mood for it.

"Enclave" by Ann Aguirre - DNF
Enclave - Ann Aguirre

This one was just too YA for me.

Well written and well conceived but too noisy with teen emotions. This was probably amplified by the "I must emote every sentence at full volume" approach of the audiobook narrator.

 After 90 minute i decided it was a DNF.

This left me wondering if there are two Ann Aguirres...
The Leopard King (Ars Numina) (Volume 1) - Ann Aguirre

I loved the Sirantha Jax series, and more recently the Dred chronicles.

 

They have some drama, action and some love story.

 

This was a drawn out, quite boring and cliche-ridden paranormal sap-fest.

It started out mostly ok, but went downhill after the first half.

 

I got bored and annoyed. Finished it though, yay.

It got a tiny tiny bit sappy in the end.
Breakout (The Dred Chronicles) - Ann Aguirre

It was a bit too much.

 

The characters lost a bit of the gritty touch they had throughout 2,5 books. So I deduct half a star for the "let's have them be happy ever after" a bit too hard.

 

But I definitely felt great for Dred and Jael and their crew to have their happy ending.

 

It just felt a bit off, too sweet, too perfect.

They are not sweet people. Not perfect. 

 

Still a great book, a great story.

Great sequel.
Havoc - Ann Aguirre

Dark again, but with a glimmer of hope.

 

I am starting to pout that it is only a triology...

 

I really really like Dred and Jael. And their group of misfits.

 

Truly inspired setting as well - it reminded me a bit of Ripley in Alien. But that might just be me (when I am reading about tall, impressive females who kick ass in space...).
