Blood Red Road tell a story of Saba who have been living in Silverlake with her family—Lugh, her twin brother, Emmi, her younger sister and their father. It all changed when a monster sandstorm arrives along with four horsemen. Her brother, Lugh, was captured and her father died. Saba went on a journey with Emmi and vowed to go after Lugh to get him back.
The truth is, I was afraid to read Blood Red Road by Moira Young. I was afraid that I was going to be disappointed what with the book been compared to The Hunger Games. It was hard to get into Blood Red Road at first with the dialect I’m not really familiar with. But after a while, I was hooked. I love the pace of the story. There were some slow, and some exciting moments. There were moments that make me laugh, smile, frustrated and thrilled to know what will happen to Saba next.
I loved Saba. She’s one of the strong female lead. She had a terrible temper and didn’t care about others other than Lugh. She wasn’t perfect. I had fun watching her transformation—how she grew up and changed after her meetings with the gang of girls who called the Free Hawks and the handsome Jack. Saba slowly warmed up to others and developed her relationship with Emmi, Jack and her new friends. Most of all, I enjoyed her interaction with Jack and how her relationship with Emmi improved.
