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.
This was a great novella. This novella goes back to the enclave after Deuce and Fade are exiled. The main characters are Thimble and Stone, Deuce’s “former” best friends. I love that this novella switches points of view between the two so you can really see what they were thinking. It goes through what is happening at the enclave while they are trying to survive. It also gives closer on what happens between Twist and Silk since there was a sort of cliffhanger during a scene in the first book. It definitely added to the story even though it was a pretty sort novella.  There was some action and some romance and it outlined pretty well what was going on.

I would highly recommend reading this if you have the means too. There are some points of the story that I think would make a difference while reading the 2nd book. This also makes me really want to continue on the story because I would love to see if the friends somehow end up meeting up again.
