A few months ago I read an amazing book called Blood Red Road by Moira Young. It falls under the genre of sci-fi fantasy with a hint of romance. Set in our world in the future where our generation is known as the wreckers, the main character Saba embarks on a dangerous quest to save her brother from the terrible clutches of her soon to be greatest enemies the Tonton. Much to her anger, her little sister was destined to join her on this quest of danger, courage and sacrifice, as she experiences first hand the terror and “red hot” of cage fighting under the name of “The angel of death”. But her immediate plans are thwarted by the unexpected arrival of the one they call Jack.
I write now an exact copy of the blurb.
“I ain’t afeared of nuthin”
“When Saba’s brother is stolen. Red rage fills her soul, she races across the cruel dustlands to find him. Saba can trust no one. Even the boy who saves her life. She must silence her heart to survive. Blood will spill.”
This is one of my all time favourite books and I would highly recommend it for pretty much anyone who likes reading but especially those who love reading adventure books or sci-fi fiction.
Blood Red Road is the first book in the dustlands trilogy, the second being Rebel Heart also an amazing read, possibly better than the first and Raging Star which was actually released on May 14 this year which I haven’t read but am sure it will be great.
