I could have easily seen a full length novel following these two around. I could finally see why the inhabitants of College were afraid of them. I'm so happy with this! With Thimble's smarts and Stone's strength they, along with Stone's boy, Boy23, set out to search for safety elsewhere. Behind him, he heard the rope snap and the metallic clang, and then an animal growling in both pain and anger. I am still left wondering how exactly they made it out of the underground but I guess that will come in the next book. And more importantly what became of Thimble, Stone, and Boy 23.
Each chapter switches between Thimble and Stone. And just when their forces are weakened by their own infighting, the zombies attack. Neither Thimble or Stone is trained and they are lugging his baby around. It would be nice to see how they will react in the same environment as Deuce and Fade. Can't wait to read how it will tie in later! They are Deuces friends who stay behind in the enclave when Deuce is banished.
I thought that Ann Aguirre wrote a great novella about two of Deuce's friends, Stone and Thimble. 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. This was more of a beginning and it would be amazing to compare how differently they go out into the world. His blade grew sticky, until it disgusted him to hold it. When I finished Enclave I was surprised to find that my edition had Endurance included. When chaos finally breaks within, Stone is thrown into the combat, fighting for his life.
With a lame foot, Thimble's prowess as a Builder earned her a place in the survivors' underground society, but she'd never dare to dream of being a partner to handsome Breeder Stone. I've not read the rest of the series as I like to go in chronological order, but I have a hope that somehow Thimble and Stone will end up crossing paths with Deuce again someday! In fact, I have no problem saying that I enjoyed it even more than Enclave. The only real downside to Endurance was the fact that it was over too soon. I loved it, and I loved that it was longer than the 0. I'd expected fireworks, not predictability.
Their journey takes them upward to an unimagined world of tinned food, comfortable furniture, and books. After the brutal battle, few are left to defend the enclave from the Freaks. I'm so happy with this! It tells what happens to Thimble and Stone after the Enclave is destroyed. Watching them finally come together tops off some great tension and makes for some good emotional payoff too. There must be some way to read this short story, it had my interest piqued! Freaks feast on the dead. Without giving anything away, the events that happened before the main characters left their situation felt contrived, pointless, and predictable.
So much so I would have rather it just been summed up in a few paragraphs. His motions were economical, and he went for eyes and throats. Please respect the publisher and the author for their copyrighted creations. Naturally, I didn't want to wait so I started it immediately after finishing Enclave and boy, am I glad t. Violence erupts from the discontent and leaves the colony floundering and vulnerable to the Freaks. Along the way, they must evade the Freaks, beings who feed on human flesh.
My biggest complaint is that it's too short. It was good to get some perspective on what happened to Thimble and Stone, that was one of the things that stuck with me in Enclave was how they stayed behind and we didnt know what had happened with them. Breeders Endurance takes place between the first and second Razorland books. This was an intriguing read. This was an intriguing read.
He ran on, holding in his mind the deadly path they'd laid. I hope they make it to Topside as well. Two, she killed her grandmother. 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. Nice short story to see what happened to the compound and those that are left. Because I notice you have a mind as well as a fine, strong body? Also I did sort of wonder how the pressurized doors still worked. In short order, there is an uprising.
Meanwhile Thimble, a simple builder, tries to be brave and takes care of the brats, trying to feed and comfort them amidst all the havoc. Primarily what happened to those left underground after Deuce and Fade were exiled. I really liked the relationship between Deuce and her childhood friends Thimble and Stone so I was a bit disappointed that we didn't find out what happened to them in Enclave. . I really hope they somehow connect with Deuce and Fade in book 3! Just as he'd said the night before: pierce, pull, pierce. His lungs burned raw; his eyes stung from the sweat trickling into them. These characters are very different I really liked the relationship between Deuce and her childhood friends Thimble and Stone so I was a bit disappointed that we didn't find out what happened to them in Enclave.
I think this was an important novella to read as it shows what happened in the enclave when they did finally rebel. I liked that Thimble and Stone had different internal struggles than Deuce, Fade and Stalker. Speaking of the Ferals, I felt they were much more menacing in this tale. When the dust settles there is not much left, over half of the people are dead and it's only a matter of time before the Freaks sniffed out the weakened community. I really enjoyed this one more than Secret Heart. The idea of using this blade on someone--his stomach turned. I am still left wondering how exactly they made it out of the underground but I guess that will come in the next book.
