All of these things made Blood Red Road a great escapist fantasy, and I think most people are really going to enjoy it. 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. Views Read Edit View history. This is another book where I didn’t really understand the world building.

Although I won’t be complaining about romance for too long. And of course there are detours for battles and kidnapping and omg, all the cage fights. And for those who thin Full review posted: She screwed up plenty. Ann was asked about the much hated love triangle she included in the book. She see’s the fear–she respects that bad things can happen from stupid people. Despite not having a voice, his personality emerges clearly, cocky and funny but with unexpected depths.

I frankly really love this book to pieces. A eight or nine year old makes a real asset on a rescue mission, as is proved when she’s captured and used as a hostage. She also has a lot to learn about the negative side of people skills as well–understanding deception and manipulation–Young cleverly explores both aspects of Saba’s deficit.

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1) by Moira Young

With the aid of a team of rebels, Jack – a guy to who she seems to be unexplainably attracted to – and his friends, will they succeed in their mission and save Lugh from a terrible destiny? But Deuce doesn’t think in those terms.

Novel of the year. Potent chemistry – gone. Talks it up, all big and scary and ends up finishing in a page or two.

Blood Red Road: Dust Lands, Book 1

She can’t read or ref. Over all the little sister was a pain in the ass that didn’t impress me in the slightest. This may be a dystopian, but I still treated it as if it’s a fantasy.

I love this kind of intensity because it gives me big feels. Unlike other fed YA novels, Blood Red Road isn’t focused on i Listen up since you may never hear these words from me again about any other book: She meets a male scoundrel miira the prison-yard, and is strangely drawn to him.

But the holes in this book are purely fact based. Instinct isn’t going to keep you alive. In all their various screen incarnations of independent, resourceful women who gave as good as they got, they provided a rich source of inspiration and aspiration. I love journies in novels, when they’re kept at a good fast pace you feel like there’s constantly something happening. Parents need to know that this post-apocalyptic fantasy starts off with the murder of the main character’s father and the kidnapping of her twin brother.


Saba doesn’t start out terribly likeable — she’s mean to her younger sister and really stubborn about doing things her way. The Wrecker civilization has long blod destroyed, leaving only landfills for Saba and her family to scavenge from.

Then as soon as her bother is taken away, suddenly she’s a changed individual. But then again, it’s not really trying to be.

As it is, this book is still probably in my top Seriously, Saba, you need to learn to take a pulse before you assume someone is dead. How old is your kid? But I read on, thinking it was just some random typo everyone makes mistakes, right?

I know this is the first book in a series, but it felt like the birthday sacrifice thing had reached a conclusion by the end of the book and Saba’s shared birthday played no role. A few kisses and some flirting and innuendo.

The Free Hawks were a great addition to the story line too as I can always appreciate the badassness of a gang of girl revolutionaries.

The characters are really great you will root for them, and care for them like they are real. The world- bblood was very well done- oh, I sound like I’m talking about meat here, “would you like your steak well done, medium rare, or rare?

The dialogue there also bordered on a little cheesy at times, though again, I did like them as a couple.
