Blurb:
The epic conclusion to the USA Today bestselling trilogy.

The horde is coming.

Salvation is surrounded, monsters at the gates, and this time, they're not going away. When Deuce, Fade, Stalker and Tegan set out, the odds are against them. But the odds have been stacked against Deuce from the moment she was born. She might not be a Huntress anymore, but she doesn't run. With her knives in hand and her companions at her side, she will not falter, whether fighting for her life or Fade's love.

Ahead, the battle of a lifetime awaits. Freaks are everywhere, attacking settlements, setting up scouts, perimeters, and patrols. There hasn't been a war like this in centuries, and humans have forgotten how to stand and fight. Unless Deuce can lead them.

This time, however, more than the fate of a single enclave or outpost hangs in the balance. This time, Deuce carries the banner for the survival of all humanity.


Reese's Review:
Horde is one of the most epic and satisfactory conclusions to date for such a dark and twisted universe.

Deuce, Stalker, Fade and Tegan are Salvations last hope. They must make it to Soldiers Pond before Salvation is lost. When seeking help they find a place with solid walls and soldiers at the ready. Sadly Salvation is lost and the survivors are on the move to Soldiers Pond. Deuce knows they are at war and it’s time they start taking back what’s there’s.

Holy craploa let me just say I loathe zombie anything. Movies’, television shows, books, comics, whatever are a big fat no to me. While I am not sure how I ended up picking up Enclave I fell in love with the story and the characters right off the bat.

Deuce is a huntress who has scars and killer fighting skills. She’s gone through Hell and back fighting the Muties but those were just battles and now they are at war. Deuce has decided to lead the war, to find ways to protect the human race from dying.

Fade hasn’t been the same since Deuce went to the Muties pen and saved him. He doesn’t feel like a man, doesn’t feel worthy of Deuce, and doesn’t want to keep fighting. Pushing her away seemed like it was for the best but Deuce isn’t giving up on him, not ever.

I cried a lot reading Horde. For one a character dies and it’s in such a beautiful yet tragic way, that I can’t even begin to describe it to you. Nor will I since I don’t want to spoil it for you but honestly this book is full of the epic. Horde wrung every emotion possible from me, crying, laughing, swooning, and had my heart racing in anticipation for what was to come. Ann Aguirre definitely knows how to capture the landscape and bring me into the book without over describing the scene.

Deuce was such an amazing character I loved her a lot. She’s a young girl who kicks ass and kills zombies. She doesn’t care that most think she’s inferior because she knows she’s not. She isn’t the smartest and has a hard time learning in schools, but she never gives up. She grew up a lot through the series as well as this final book, which was spectacular.

Fade and Deuce’s romance was off the charts awesome in this book. Not giving anything away or saying they get a happy ending but what they shared throughout this final story was absolutely amazing.

Horde finally tells us the reason behind the title Razorland, which couldn’t have been more awesome. Not many books give detail as to why a book is named the way it is but wow, EPICNESS!!!

I guess if you couldn’t tell I absolutely loved Horde and this whole dang trilogy. I loved the ending and just feel this series couldn’t have ended more perfectly.
