    BEFORE READINGOCTOBER 29TH 2013AFTER READINGWhat an epic conclusion to this brilliant series but, seriously was I the only one who was like:WHEN WE FINALLY LEARNED OUT WHY ITS CALLED THE RAZORLAND TRILOGY... SERIOUSLY I'VE BEEN WONDERING ABOUT THAT SINCE DAY 1

    this summer, the plan is to return to a bunch of YA series that i started and never finished for whatever reason. because it's important to have goals. and closure. i have no idea why i paused for so long with this series, because i remember loving it, but pause i did. fortunately for me, unlike ilsa j. bick who makes you work to reorient yourself, aguirre does a good job gently reminding the reader who may have taken a couple of years off from t...

    I have no words for how amazing this book is. Guys, you really have something to look forward to here.

    6 STARSGlorious. Gory. Moving. Provocative. Inspiring. I’m not describing Braveheart, I’m describing Horde, the most outstanding final book in a series I think I have ever read. And that’s high freaking praise.I am rarely moved by books. They might touch me for a day, maybe 2 but then I’m over it. Hell, this book didn’t just move me; I was ready to pack a flag and head into battle alongside Deuce.My first bit of advice: if you read Outp...

    4.5 stars A story that is brutal and savage, yet full of honor and tenderness as well. A satisfying conclusion to a series I've come to admire tremendously. Review to come.
  • Sarah
    How can you rate the book when it's two years from publication?!?! The second isn't even out yet! And there's not even a description of the third book!! It's unfair to judge a book like this.
  • Meg
    4.5 starsTo any authors trying to figure out how to end their series, I advise you to talk to Ann Aguirre because that lady knows what she’s doing. If I had to sum up my feelings in a gif, it would be this:I imagine Horde feels similar to a satisfying run. (As I am the kind of person that goes out of her way to avoid that sort of activity, I wouldn’t know firsthand but I’ve read about it.) Your adrenaline’s up and your blood is pumping, y...

    OKAY, I GIVE UP.You know, I really liked ENCLAVE. Was okay with OUTPOST. But have to say that I sadly :( could not reconnect enough to enjoy HORDE, at all.I don't know whether I've changed since the first book was published, or whether the author's style has evolved, but this was not the book for me. I thought it was slow and boring and I didn't care one wit for what happened to Deuce and Fade. (Although everyone else will be happy with how thing...
  • Rachel E. Carter
    This will forever be one of my favorite YA series. Dark, gritty, and all of the characters have my heart. I DON'T EVEN LIKE ZOMBIES!!! I took a long time to finish because I knew this book would destroy me, and in some ways it did. I know the right ship won and (view spoiler)[Stalker had to die for all of the horrible things he did (hide spoiler)], but a part of still wishes it had ended differently. I never saw the twist with the Muties, and I l...
  • Hannah
    This series blew my expectations out of the water. Could not put it down even to sleep, read the first two in two days. Read it if you like dystopian novels
  • Faye, la Patata
    It saddens me to say that this book disappointed me beyond my imagination. I have had such high hopes for this finale seeing that I loved Enclave and Outpost a lot, falling in love with the story and the main cast of characters. When I got my hands on Horde, I quickly consumed it without delay, and I thought with my excitement, I could probably finish it in one sitting. I finished this book days after. And it's bad when I finish a book in a span ...
  • Brad Sells
    This review is entirely spoiler free, even if you haven't started this series. The horde is coming. Horde is an epic and highly satisfying conclusion to one of the best, well-done post-apocalytpic series out there. Brutal, addictive, and wholly original, Horde is a fantastic finale that will have readers hanging on tightly for this wild ride to never end. I already knew that this series is filled with tension, scandal, betrayal, and all that fun...
  • Torzilla
    I'm giving multiple ratings for HORDE. As a whole, it was a good end to a spectacular series that totally knocked my socks off. HORDE is separated into three parts, and it is those three parts I will be reviewing now:PART I- 3/5 & PART II- 2.5/5I was texting a friend, and I think something I said explained my thoughts regarding these two sections perfectly: Deuce is a girl who was, to a certain degree, brainwashed by the society she lived in. So,...

    Five Stars: A stunning conclusion to an amazing series!Deuce arrives at Soldier Pond, begging for help. Her new home Salvation is under siege from the Horde. The Freaks have multiplied and banded together into an unstoppable colony. They are faster, smarter and capable of destroying what remains of humanity. Even though the threat is real, the remaining settlements aren't convinced that they should fight. Deuce takes it upon herself to try and ra...
  • Tyler
    Welp, that's it. It's over, folks. Let me start off by saying that this last book was a little disappointing. I still enjoyed the book somewhat; it's just that this third installment comes nowhere near the other two.THINGS THAT BOTHERED ME1. Pacing. The pacing was so slow until the last part of the book. Even then, I skimmed the last few pages because there was so much junk. The majority of the book was running around and killing Freaks, with onl...
  • Justine
    An excellent conclusion to a very solid series. 4.5 stars for the series as a whole. It was enjoyable pretty well from start to finish.

    "When people stop writing down their stories, the soul of the world is lost." —Morrow, Horde, P. 149 Temporary safety in the town of Salvation is only a memory as Deuce, Fade, Stalker, and Tegan hit the road in search of a settlement that might be willing to send reinforcements to stave off the Freaks when they attack. Salvation is at the mercy of thousands of these mutants until enough towns send men to help fight the enemy, and Deuce's convoy...

    With the Horde camped all around Salvation and everyone Deuce has come to care about once again in danger she has set out with Fade, Tegan and Stalker to try and get help from the nearest settlements. The number of Freaks they're up against leave them facing almost impossible odds but Deuce and her friends are determined and as they gradually gain the respect of other settlements their army starts to grow. They're going to need a miracle if they ...
  • Jade
    You know those books you read when you where younger? Those books that made you fall in love with reading? This book reminded me of that. However I'm not going to call it a YA book as I don't believe it should be classified as such-the themes and actions and reactions that occurred were more mature than most any YA books I've read, closer to adult fiction. If I had to pick one word for this novel, it would be: fantastic. The progression of plot, ...
  • Jen (The Starry-Eyed Revue)
    Well, that was a satisfying conclusion to a trilogy I've loved from the very beginning.  It came full-circle, wrapped up loose ends, answered questions that have plagued the reader for the duration of the series...yes, very satisfying indeed.I'm going to keep this short for fear that anything I say will spoil things along the way.  Also, I hate series finales.  I usually put off reading the final book in a series until I just can't stand it a...

    “Because I love you.' It was easy to say it this time now that I understood what it meant. Then I quoted his own words back to him. 'Not just when it's easy. All the time.” For a minute there I think my heart stopped. I’ve had my bad share of series-finale books. Some got left me sad, some left me disappointed, and some even left me incredibly ticked off. So I was wary while reading Horde. I was wishfully thinking this would not blow up in ...
  • Amanda
    4.5 stars. This series was so much more than I was expecting it to be. One of my favorite dystopian YA's. If you are a fan of the genre definitely read this!
  • Elena Linville
    This is a review for both Outpost and Horde. There are some spoilers, so read at your own risk.I loved Enclave, the first book in the Razorland series, because it was an interesting and fresh take at the post-apocalyptic world with a very strong female protagonist and interesting supporting characters. So I really wanted to like the next two books in the series, I really did. Unfortunately, those books proved to be a huge disappointment, at least...
  • Sunny
    4.5 starsI should trust Ann Aguirre more. Her books fascinate and thrill me, but I feel like holding a little back, fearful of investing too much emotion into her characters. It never works, of course, because I am sucked right back into the vortex of thrill, fear, dispair, and hope. But in the end, she never disappoints. This book is stirring, shocking, tender, and in the end, very, very hopeful. The world is dark, dank, and dirty. The Freaks ar...
  • mich
    Woah...what happened?I’m not even going to talk about the storyline or character development (which had both good and bad elements in this final book) -- I’m just going to comment on the writing. What the hell happened to it?The narrative sucked, it was so bland and dry. Okay, so Deuce has never been an emotional character -- given her background and everything else about her personality, it totally worked and it’s even something I’ve alw...
  • Mizuki
    I can appreciate the author for making the heroine's journey to unify humans and become a leader being a tough one, but I really don't like (1) how the grave crisis is solved in the end so very easily, (2) a main character died and it's so damn predictable, looks like his death is being used as tear-jerker.
  • ☽☆Jean☠BookRampage☆☾
    Sweet lord, this was amazing. The best one for sure. I laughed, I cried, and I smiled. This book delivered ALL of the feels. I felt like I was watching a war movie and it was incredible. With good reason because I read about how much research the author put into this book in the author's notes. Truly, I'm impressed.Ann Aguirre won me over as a fan for life, so now I'm going to try and sort out my emotions.
  • Sally
    After having had my heart and trust broken recently by another trilogy ending (here's a hint; it rhymes with Smismurgent), I tackled this book with a bit of trepidation. Would Aguirre leave my soul trashed by killing off my favorite characters recklessly? Would I be bored and confused?NO!Ann Aguirre delivers with, perhaps, the best ending to a series I have ever read. You know how every once in a great while a book will really stick to your bones...
