Enclave (Razorland, #1) by Ann Aguirre
Request this title here!  
Summary: The Hunger Games meets I Am Legend

Deuce has lived in an underground enclave all of her life, where the rules are strict and the motto is ‘only the strong survive.’ Those fortunate enough to live until their fifteenth birthday are honored with a name and one of three jobs – Breeder, Builder, or Hunter.

For Deuce, all she has ever wanted is to be a Hunter and works with blind devotion towards her goal. Hunters are not only responsible for feeding the enclave, but also for protecting them from the Freaks – flesh-eating monsters who roam the dark tunnels outside the enclave for fresh meat. On her fifteenth birthday, Deuce has proven her worth and is officially initiated as a Huntress. Partnered with the brooding Fade, an outsider from Topside, Deuce is given the job of finding out why the once mindless Freaks are now showing signs of cunning intelligence, further threatening the survival of her people.

As Deuce and Fade work together, Deuce makes the realization that the enclave's leaders are not as perfect as she once thought they were; and when she is forced to  leave the only life she has ever known, she must learn how to survive Topside.

If you’re a fan of dystopian fiction, you will absolutely love this book! Enclave is action-packed and fast paced from the very beginning up until you turn the last page. The characters are strong, engaging, and very human in their emotions. I can’t wait for the next installment of this series.
