I’ve read worse, but I’ve definitely have read better. But Blood Red Road was different and unique and exciting. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, we meet Saba, her twin brother Lugh, her sister Emmi and their father living in Silverlake, a place which reminded me a bit of the movie Mad Max. Honestly, I loved all the characters and every little piece and tidbit about them. Everyone needs read this now. As in an unhealthy, half in love with her golden boy brother who is the best rd ever kind of way.

Ma died nine years ago and it’s just them. She screwed dustlanfs plenty. But it seems fine as far as stories go. The heroine, Saba, honestly takes a bit of time to warm up towards. What a shame it doesn’t reach next books in trilogy.

I want the 2nd book now! Hell, at one point she even says, “Flight is essential. Oct 02, Ela rated it it was amazing Shelves: It was like a breath of fresh air. Just give me a post-apoc Dune not in space and with less bizarre shit.


But I read on, thinking it was just some random typo everyone makes mistakes, right? By singing like a freak No. My gripes with the novel were few but the most glaring was the number of coincidences. Then I started to notice other mistakes like ‘an’ instead of ‘and’ and ‘jest’ instead of ‘just’. Fans of Dystopian Fiction.

An unfired Checkov gun. Apocalypse plus positive Trudi review http: I don’t need to tell you there’s action. I would have been upset if there was none and the main male squeeze is a cool, likable dude. Emi was one of the sweetest, most enduring characters. This book is like swiss cheese. It’s an okay cheese, but bkood aren’t suppose to be swiss cheese. Once you read this, you are brought to different places, different situations and different characters.

Lugh is thinking his Dad is full of hogwash, but one day a storm comes. Of course, there are more than a few hints dropped in this book to pave the way for the next–a common vustlands in sequelitis.

She can’t read or write. Don’t you need water? There were, however, some things that I felt could have used a little more fleshing out: As it is, this book is still probably in my top People who know who wish they had a toad crow sidekick.

Blood Red Road: Dust Lands, Book 1 Book Review

I mean, everyone is born with this innate animal instinct. Thank you for your support. Fun first person, which delivers it from one star hell, but when the whole book is derived from the lives of Han Solo, Princess Leia and Lando Calrissian from the Trilogy and the canon books, no one can argue that this book isn’t derivitive in the extreme. Some authors, notably Marillier, have a talent for using a few words and pulling you into their world.


In the beginning, it was all about survival and tactics, and figuring others out. She’s 9 and skinny and gangly and refuses to be left in “safe places” while Saba goes to find Lugh. In real bood, plans don’t go off without a hitch and people don’t show up at the exact moment you absolutely need them. I read a short excerpt roa, and in turn, Moura had absolutely no problems getting into the story right away.

Blood Red Road

It’s the movie that powers the heart of Blood Red Road. Oh, and another thing On the other hand, I agree with other reviewers who think the first part of the novel is stronger than the second. Then as soon as her bother is taken away, suddenly she’s a changed individual.

I just gave up caring. For me, that’s all to the benefit in a young-adult novel; there dustlanvs so much longing and angst I can take. Dec 27, Jillian -always aspiring- rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Tiny things that add up and eventually it’s a free for all.

A few kisses and some flirting and innuendo. I’ve read books with way harder dialects, and this one was an easy transition. Saba is off to find her brother who’s been kidnapped, which also left her in charge of her pesky little sister.
