"Blood Red Road" by Moira Young GoodReads review


Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1)Blood Red Road by Moira Young
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I had high expectations of this story. Well, it was interesting at first to learn from pieces what happened to the world; why nature is so violent and how the people became like this.

In "Blood Red Road" Saba lives with her father, her brother Lugh and her sister Emmi into a desertland. One day an armed troop appears, kills her father and abducts her brother. From that point Saba and her sister will travel in order to find Lugh.

While the plot was interesting, there was a strange use of words and grammar in this book. For those who'll read it, don't worry, it's not fault from the publication, just the author's way to keep in with the enviromant of her story. From the characters, Jack was the strongest of all while at some points I got really irritated with Saba and even found Emmi cooler.
Even the bad guy has a hard time STAYING dead.

I hope the next book to be more interesting from the first. Until then: 3 of 5 stars
