Review: Foundation by Ann Aguirre

Foundation (Razorland) by Ann Aguirre
Synopsis (Goodreads):
In Ann Aguirre’s award-winning novel, Enclave, humans have taken refuge in colonies below ground. Here is the story of what drove them there, told through the eyes of a teen who would later have vast influence over the fate of many, and who gave his heart to the one person who needed him most.
My Thoughts: This is just the sort of insanity-making awesomeness that I've come to expect from Ann Aguirre. Getting to see the beginning of the end was shiver inducing and reminded me of just how much I loved Enclave.

We got some hints of who Robin might be in Endurance when Stone and Thimble stumbled onto the underground bunker while on the run. Now we get to see how the life of the topsiders progressed as the sickness spread, what drove Robin's family below ground, and ultimately what happened to those "lucky" enough to be able to afford these hermetically sealed habitats.

A very, very intriguing step back into the Razorland world that takes what we already know and expands it in a most satisfactory manner.

    1. Endurance was a freebie on the Heroes & Heartbreakers website but I don't think it's there anymore. However, you can buy it for less and a dollar at Amazon.

    2. Was it one of those things where you had to be a member to read?

    3. Ooh. Maybe. I AM a member at H&H so it's highly possible.

  3. Will Foundation make sense if you haven't read Enclave yet?

    1. You *probably* could but I really recommend reading Enclave first just so the ending has more impact.

  4. I read Enclave (freaking door opening), I need to go read Foundation. I keep swearing I am not going to read Outpost since I know she will Cliffie it again but I know I will read it. I just tell myself that so I feel better LOL

    1. I've been putting off Outpost for the same reason. I own it, I'm just afraid to read it because SHE WILL KILL ME DEAD, I JUST KNOW IT!
