Waiting on Wednesday 2/9/11

ENCLAVE by Ann Aguirre

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.

I've tried reading Aguirre before and failed (her Corine Solomon series) but I have heard good things about her Sirrantha Jax series and look forward to trying it out someday. But this one will probably come first in my reading pile. It's got a great premise and is YA, so it already has points going for it. We shall see!

Release Date: April 12, 2011
