Catches ones interest right away. Not on par with the Hunger games Trilogy etc but a worthwhile read.

"Far into Earth's future, 18-year-old Saba ekes out a hardscrabble existence with her father, twin brother, and younger sister on a dry, dusty, used-up scrap of land. Saba cares about very little besides her family, so when Lugh, her twin, is kidnapped, she immediately sets out to save him. Little does she know the dangers she'll face on her journey -- or the powerful secrets she'll learn. First in a trilogy, and reminiscent of science fiction classics such as the movie Mad Max and Frank Herbert's Dune novels, Blood Red Road is sure to satisfy fans of intense, fast-paced stories that blend action and romance."

This was, by far, one of the best series i have ever read. i devoured "Blood red road" and then demolished "Rebel heart". it was twisted and deceiving and constantly keeping you on your toes. i thought i loved the "Hunger games", but then i read these books and it was as if i had been blind and now could finally see. Moira young has to be my absolute favourite author right now. These books deprive you of sleep, and time and leave you desperately begging for more!

This book is absolutely AMAZING and a must read!!! The first tiny bit might be a little boring, but then it's all action all the way to the end. The language is unique and may get some getting used to, but it fits in with the book perfectly. This book is for all Hunger Games fans, and Divergent Fans--- it will blow you away!

This book is fast-paced with a fantastic heroine, a great mythology, and world-building that sucks you in. The language, the structure....I read it in 3 days. I hope Moira Young writes more, and soon- her handle of voice and character arc and pacing is fantastic. This is a must-read for fans of YA, especially if you're looking for a quick read to get entirely lost in, and a strong female lead to inspire you.

No matter how interesting this book looked, I couldn't bring myself to read it because of the way it was written. The misspellings and grammatical mistakes, although put there on purpose, made it hard to read and annoying to try and understand.

Blood Red Road was an incredible adventure. Right from the very start I was drawn in to the post apocalyptic times after the wreckers as they call it. Where it seems much like A old wild west at first but then intertwines into something more in the works of mad max. There is already a review that made that comparison in not so many words, but there is really no other way to put it. I love the way the characters grow in the story. From Em to Jack to the Free Hawks, there is never a dull moment in this book. Everyone has their story and you wish there was A whole book on everyone themselves to read on their own. I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in YA Dystopian fiction IE. Hunger Games, Divergent, Legend, Enclave, Partials etc...

"Jack grins. Anyways, Saba likes to look at my bare chest. Lugh looks at me. Frowns. Is that a fact? he says. I feel myself go bright red. It is not a fact, I says. You stinker, Jack."

"I ain't never seen a creature like that before, she says. He's so smart, he's- More, like a person than a bird? I says. Yeah, she says. That's it. Whatever you do, I says, don't tell him that. I'll never hear the end of it."

Ever heard of the rule of three? he shouts as we run. No! If you save somebody's life three times, their life belongs to you. You saved my life today, that makes once. Save it twice more an I'm all yers.
