From the Review Pile 8-23-12

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

I got the book Outpost a couple weeks ago, the sequel to Enclave which I read last year, and now that she is coming to my bookstore (yay!!), and it's being released soon, I should probably read it.

Deuce’s whole world has changed. Down below, she was considered an adult. Now, topside in a town called Salvation, she’s a brat in need of training in the eyes of the townsfolk. She doesn’t fit in with the other girls: Deuce only knows how to fight.

To make matters worse, her Hunter partner, Fade, keeps Deuce at a distance. Her feelings for Fade haven’t changed, but he seems not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out.

Deuce signs up to serve in the summer patrols—those who make sure the planters can work the fields without danger. It should be routine, but things have been changing on the surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks have grown smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it may take a girl like Deuce to turn back the tide.

But my copy looks like this >>

Which one is better? The above is the final cover I believe, and I am glad. They made it sort of creepier. Not as clean. And the knife was just silly looking...

Outpost is released September 4th! And my review will be up soon after. I left it at home, and I get back from my trip only a couple days before it's released, so I'll get to it as soon as possible.

I'm sort of anxious to read it, because I don't remember much of the first one, just an annoying character called Stalker. So I hope there is some recap.

Right now I am about to read Aguirre's short steampunk story in the Corsets & Clockwork anthology, and it looks good!

Find on Goodreads below! 

Enclave (paperback was released just last week or so!)
Outpost (September 4th)
Corsets & Clockwork (anthology from 13 different authors)

Happy reading!
