ENCLAVE by Ann Aguirre ARC Giveaway

I've been reading some seriously awesome dystopic fiction these days. As in great world building, believable characters, and conflicts that make you really hang on the edge of your seat to find out what will happen next including this one which I was psyched when I got my hands on. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down, and I'm already waiting for book 2.

All you fans of THE MAZE RUNNER and THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH and DIVERGENT, this one's for you!

So up for giveaway this week is:

ENCLAVE by Ann Aguirre (Feiwel & Friends, April 12, 2011)

And the kick-butt (literally) book trailer:

From Amazon:

WELCOME TO THE APOCALYPSE In Deuce's world, people earn the right to a name only if they survive their first fifteen years. By that point, each unnamed 'brat' has trained into one of three groups-Breeders, Builders, or Hunters, identifiable by the number of scars they bear on their arms. Deuce has wanted to be a Huntress for as long as she can remember.

As a Huntress, her purpose is clear--to brave the dangerous tunnels outside the enclave and bring back meat to feed the group while evading ferocious monsters known as Freaks. She's worked toward this goal her whole life, and nothing's going to stop her, not even a beautiful, brooding Hunter named Fade. When the mysterious boy becomes her partner, Deuce's troubles are just beginning.

Down below, deviation from the rules is punished swiftly and harshly, and Fade doesn't like following orders. At first she thinks he's crazy, but as death stalks their sanctuary, and it becomes clear the elders don't always know best, Deuce wonders if Fade might be telling the truth. Her partner confuses her; she's never known a boy like him before, as prone to touching her gently as using his knives with feral grace.

As Deuce's perception shifts, so does the balance in the constant battle for survival. The mindless Freaks, once considered a threat only due to their sheer numbers, show signs of cunning and strategy... but the elders refuse to heed any warnings. Despite imminent disaster, the enclave puts their faith in strictures and sacrifice instead. No matter how she tries, Deuce cannot stem the dark tide that carries her far from the only world she's ever known.
