This week I decided to continue with the Razorland series by Ann Aguirre. This book is the in-between short story from Enclave to Outpost #1.5. We actually get to see what happened to Thimble and Stone, Deuce's friends she left behind! Enjoy!

"The enclave was quiet the day normalcy died." pg. 1

"He would've said anything to keep his brat safe, and he had. Turned his back on his best friend and left her to die. The guilt of that moment would always haunt him. But maybe his moments were numbered, and it didn't matter anymore." Kindle Location 141 (11%)


Goodreads Info:
When rebellion destroys the underground world in which Thimble and Stone have grown up, they take Stone’s son and try to escape the chaos. Along the way, they must evade the Freaks, beings who feed on human flesh. Leaving behind the roles of Builder and Breeder which they were assigned at birth, they wander the underground tunnels, looking for safety yet afraid to go “topside” where legend has it that the light and water will burn their skin from their bones.

Their journey takes them upward to an unimagined world of tinned food, comfortable furniture, and books. Away from their regimented society for the first time, and still facing imminent danger, Thimble and Stone acknowledge the forbidden attraction which both have denied for years.
