Blood Red Road

Blood Red Road by Moria Young. Amazing book! I absolutely hated this book when I started it. I didn't enjoy the way it was written at all. The story was interesting but I just could get past the dialog. I kept reading though because I'd heard it was good and the story itself caught my interest right away. After the first 100 pages or so I stopped being annoyed with the writing and was so caught up in the story I forgot about it. Absolutely glad I stuck it out until the end :)

Saba has spent her whole life in Silverlake, a dried-up wasteland ravaged by constant sandstorms. The Wrecker civilization has long been destroyed, leaving only landfills for Saba and her family to scavenge from. That's fine by her, as long as her beloved twin brother Lugh is around. But when a monster sandstorm arrives, along with four cloaked horsemen, Saba's world is shattered. Lugh is captured, and Saba embarks on an epic quest to get him back.

Suddenly thrown into the lawless, ugly reality of the world outside of desolate Silverlake, Saba is lost without Lugh to guide her. So perhaps the most surprising thing of all is what Saba learns about herself: she's a fierce fighter, an unbeatable survivor, and a cunning opponent. And she has the power to take down a corrupt society from the inside. Teamed up with a handsome daredevil named Jack and a gang of girl revolutionaries called the Free Hawks, Saba stages a showdown that will change the course of her own civilization.
