Book Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Origin Story" for the Razorland Series 5 Dec. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on

Entertaining, but with heavy-handed "origin story" tones. Explains the social foundations of the Enclaves, but not the cause of the Apocalypse itself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Background 11 May 2013

I really like Aguirre's Enclave series...yes its another dystopian/apocolyptic young adult novel but its really good and very different. I have read "Enclave" and another short called "Endurance". I was halfway through "Outpost" and without that (physical) book when I started reading "Foundation" on my kindle. "Foundation" is very short. A casual reader may not want to spend the .99 cents to buy this one but if you really like the Razorland series, it is worth the investment. "Foundation" tells of the events that lead to the end of the world as we know it, through the eyes of a teen boy named Robin. After a deadly conatmination sparks off a the spreading of a destructive virus. Robin's family is locked into an apartment complex with several other families. At first even the individual apartments are sealed off but as the story progresses the families begin to mingle in the hallways. Pre-allocated food is still being delivered to the residents so at this stage of the disaster the world is still functioning...somewhat. "Foundation" quickly tells how fast the world crumbles. Nothing in "Foundation" is going to change how you view the series but it was way to spend a little time in this world again.

I thought Ann Aguirre's Razorland Trilogy was excellent and so I was excited to get a glimpse of "what came before". Unlike many authors, Ann Aquirre began and finished her trilogy in 3 books and I don't think she is going back to it. While this short story didn't have the impact the books did, it was a nice short journey back into Deuce's world.

*Book source ~ Purchased on Amazon

Robin Schiller is thirteen when he and his parents go underground in a hermetically sealed tiny bunker to avoid the chemical bomb set off in Times Square. Told it would be a temporary thing until order topside is restored, he is fourteen when all contact with the outside world stops. Finding another boy his age in one of the compartments of his unit of the underground Robin whispers conversations with him daily until everyone in the unit decides they should all meet. Robin’s world is turned upside down yet again, but it’s not the last time that will happen.

My thirteen-yr-old son is a big fan of the Razorland books, so I bought this prequel more for him than for me, but then decided to read it myself. This is a very interesting story even if it is bleak beyond measure. While every change sucks, there is still hope and when Robin meets Austin he decides he can survive anything as long as he has Austin at his side. I had a mild curiosity to read the series before, but now I really must see how the future that appeared so bleak in Foundation really turns out.
