Review for Blood Red Road

I’m sorry, I says.
Fer what? he says.
Fer always bein … you know … so—
Ungrateful? he says.
Yeah, I says.
I guess so.
Rude? Pig-headed? Violent?
I ain’t violent!
Oh yes, you are. Very. But I like that in a woman.
I laugh. Yer crazy, I says.
I was fine till I met you, he says.

Saba is a strong willed girl who lives with her father, brother and little sister in a place called Silverlake. She loves her brother Lugh and when one day some Tontons take him away she promises him that she'll find him, no matter what.

And so her quest of finding her brother begins and on the way she meets Jack and the Free Hawks who help her go on. She meets new people and has some terrible experiences which could break anyone, but not our strong Saba.

At first she didn't care about anything except finding her brother. The way she kept on pushing Jack away was a little annoying at times (but that might be because I am so totally in love with him!). But she slowly changed into a smarter, better version of Saba. At the end of the story, she was stronger, smarter, and a lot more experienced. Somehow, Saba reminded me strongly of Melanie from The Host although a little more better than her.

The way Moira Young executed this story was amazing. There's just simply nothing in this book that dystopian readers won't like. It's perfectlywonderfullyamazingly AWESOME!!! I can hardly wait for the next book!


  1. Excellent blog, this one. Guess you could put up with a better rating system. The stars look a bit out-dated.

    1. Thanks! And yeah, I'll make sure to work on it. :)
