Endurance by Anne Aguirre


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.

Look for the ENDURANCE e-book, out soon!

I am beyond excited about this--can't wait to read it! I was so sad to think, like Deuce thought, that Stone and Thimble hadn't survived, so I am thrilled to get their story now.

When I read this, I feel immediately submerged in the world. Fantastic. (Though I'd never really want to live there!)

I was hoping Thimble and Stone would be able to escape, too. Such a good short story! I can't wait for "Outpost!"

Ah! I loved this. It's been soooo long since I've been inside the Enclave universe Ann created. I have loved and missed it. I had hoped that Thimble and Stone and his little boy had survived. Thank the author that they have. I am sooo excited for Outpost.

They are making it into an e-book so I think you just have to wait for that.
