Blood Red Road – Moira Young

Blood Red Road – Moira Young

“Saba has spent her whole life Silverlake, a dried up wasteland ravaged by constant dust storms. That’s fine by her as long as her beloved twin brother, Lugh, is around. But when a monster sandstorm arrives bearing four cloaked horseman, Saba’s world is shattered. Lugh is captured, and Saba embarks on a quest to get him back.

Suddenly thrown into the lawless, ugly reality of the world outside, Saba is lost without Lugh to guide her. So perhaps the most surprising thing of all is what Saba learns about herself; she’s 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 stages a showdown that will change the course of her own civilization.

Blood Red Road has a searing pace, a poetically minimal writing style, relentless action and an epic love story.”

I took the setting of this book to be in the future where reading is a lost art, binoculars are called long lookers, flyers (airplanes) are buried under sand and there are no calendars, only the dependence of the sky and seasons. I love the writing style of this book. It’s unique and you would think there were a lot of typos. I feel Saba’s emotions when she witnesses her father’s death, her brother’s kidnapping and the complications of falling in love. Over all it was a really awesome book. It has a couple cuss words, practically damn and bastard, so I recommend an audience 14 and up J
