Book Description

Publication Date:June 7, 2011
The book that will “blow you away”** has a dazzling new look in paperback!
Saba has spent her whole life in Silverlake, a dried-up wasteland ravaged by constant sandstorms. The Wrecker civilization has long been destroyed, leaving only landfills for Saba and her family to scavenge from. That’s fine by her, as long as her beloved twin brother Lugh is around. But when four cloaked horsemen capture Lugh, Saba’s world is shattered, and she embarks on a quest to get him back. Suddenly thrown into the lawless, ugly reality of the outside world, Saba discovers she is a fierce fighter, an unbeatable survivor, and a cunning opponent. Teamed up with a handsome daredevil named Jack and a gang of girl revolutionaries called the Free Hawks, Saba’s unrelenting search for Lugh stages a showdown that will change the course of her own civilization.
Blood Red Road has a searing pace, a poetic writing style, and an epic love story—making Moira Young is one of the most exciting new voices in teen fiction.
Review –
I started reading this book on my Ipad but somehow deleted it when I was only 28% into the story.  What to do?  I checked online with the local public library and miracles of miracles they had it so I drove down and picked it up and had it finished the next day.  It’s a fast read if you don’t let the writing style get in your way.  This is yet another dystopian young adult book but it was compelling and hard to put down.  Again, I have found another series to follow.  Hope I can keep track.
