Outcasts by Jill Williamson (The Safe Lands; 2)

The Synopsis:

Since entering the Safe Lands, Mason has focused on two things: finding a way to free his village from captivity and finding a cure for the disease that ravages many within the walls of the Safe Lands. 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. At the same time, Mason’s brother Levi is focused on a way to free the remaining Glenrock captives, while Mason’s younger brother, Omar, decides to take the rebellion against the Safe Lands into his own hands as a vigilante.

Soon all three brothers are being watched closely–and when Mason stumbles onto a shocking secret about the Safe Lands meds, his investigation just might get those closest to him liberated.

Read Our Review of Captives (book 1).


In this book following Captives, book 1 in the Safe Lands TrilogyOutcasts brings us even deeper into the Safe Lands as we root for our favorite characters to escape the city.

Just as with the first book,  our characters are still full of their own surprises and take on their trials and obstacles in unique ways. The story just keeps getting better towards the end of this book and you’d better brace yourself for a cliffhanger and have book 3 (Rebels) close at hand!

As I mentioned in my review of Captives, there is some drug and alcohol use as well as sexual content, but Outcasts has considerably less of this negative content than the first book did. The content is still “there” but because the readers understand the story world much better in this book, that content isn’t at the forefront of every scene. Also, the content is shown to be “bad” rather than “good” like in many young adult series.

So overall, I was very pleased with Outcasts and give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Don’t miss our review of the third and final book: Rebels!
