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.

Blood Red Road is centered in a wasted world and follows Saba through her many struggles through an unknown land. After her twin brother is kidnapped by strangers Saba vows to get him back, but before she can rescue him, she must first free herself. With her young sister in tow Saba risks her life and her mind in order to conquer desolate lands, imprisonment, and time in order to save her twin.
This book was hands down amazing, I couldn’t put it down. I felt as if I was there living it firsthand. The style of writing was a little hard to grasp at first, but once I did I was in deep.  The world Moira created was so unique, incredible, but mostly believable. It brought out the inner animal of the people and exposed their lasting humanity all at once. I loved it and didn’t waste any time starting in on book two.
