Horde Review

432 pages

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.

This an amazing and exciting conclusion to the Razorland series! Deuce has experienced so much that helps her to develop into the leader she needs to be. The relationship between Deuce and Fade has been tested and its hard to see whether they will overcome the barriers that now stand between them. We get to see Tegan change into a stronger version of herself without losing her caring and helpful nature. Stalker also exhibits some changes for the better although things aren't all that great between him and Deuce. The Freaks are developing at a faster rate than anyone can imagine and its interesting to find out more about them and the reason behind their changes. I love that we get to experience what the rest of the known world is like through Deuce's eyes. There are many different towns left that all have different reactions and ways to keep the Freaks at bay. The war between the Freaks and the humans isn't an easy one to be won by any means, and there are quite a few devastating losses. Everything comes down to a final battle which is both exciting and brings some new revelations along with it as well. If you have read the Razorland series, you will not be disappointed by this ending. I definitely recommend you pick up this novel if you like dystopian fiction but make sure to read Enclave and Outpost first.
