In my previous review of Captives , I assumed that liberation meant death, an effort to stabilize population growth. In this novel, the one great question our group of rebels continuously ponder is the meaning of liberation.
Since Outcasts concludes without a definitive answer to the question, my presumption might just be wrong. The other incredible feature in this series is the character development. Levi is the overbearing brother who feels the weight of responsibility for an entire village. After the village elders were killed, he is now one of the eldest. Everything falls to him, including the protection of his two younger brothers.
Omar wants to prove himself to his brothers, but most of all — he wants to prove his worth to himself by shedding the aura of the screwed-up-young-kid-brother to become a real man who makes the right decisions. Although he feels suffocated by Levi, Omar also wants to be like Levi.
Though, I admit, I was slightly disappointed that there were fewer references to The Princess Bride, however, this didn't stop me from enjoying Levi and Jemma's banter. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. I got to the last page and was like, "Noooo! The end, those last few pages - it's one of those types of endings. After immune-suppressive drugs go missing in the clinic, Mason discovers his coworker, Ciddah, may know more about the Safe Lands than imagined … and may have an agenda of her own. But it's hard to imagine the British Home Secretary, Theresa May, say, surviving the generalisations deployed by Mr Yishai about the asylum-seekers he says have made south Tel Aviv Israel's "garbage can".
While he struggles with addiction and a poor self-image, Omar takes center stage with his coming-of-age story. The end of Outcasts will leave you hanging at a crucial moment — just when the meaning of liberation is about to become clear. Everything else is thrown up into a hanging position with a few new massive question marks added to the cloudy mixture.

This is a slice of sweet fluffy lesbian fiction, and I enjoyed every mouthful. It's cute, and sexy, and just long enough for an evening read. I'd read more from this author.

Five stars isn't enough in my opinion. It offers a new twist to sci-fi romance and also has a paranormal feel about it Think good and evil, heaven and hell then add outer space Reviewed by Jane Shambler. An entertaining and thought provoking lesfic sci-fi allegory. They bedevil and enlighten each other into growth and togetherness. Reviewed by Sami Finn.
Definitely not your standard sci-fi romance. Black's books are raw and emotion provoking erotica with a BDSM bias. Sue and Kara star in this particular story which is intriguing and gripping and not for the "lily-livered". I was hooked and read through the night. Fiction, fiction!
