Product description

Saba’s twin is golden. She is his living shadow. He is strong and beautiful. She is scrawny and dark. But nothing will separate them… Raised in the dusty wastelands of Silverlake, Saba is ignorant of the violent and dangerous world beyond, where life is cheap and survival is hard. But when her twin brother is snatched by mysterious black-robed riders, she sets out on an epic quest to rescue him. How will Saba find him in a wild, scorching and lawless land? Every step of her journey sizzles with danger in this futuristic thriller, which beats with a powerful, red-blooded heart.

“An outstanding debut… echoes of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road and the writing is fantastic.” The Bookseller Spring Highlights Top 10

“Written in a sparse, spare style that fits the bleak setting perfectly, and with a first-person narration that gets us right inside Saba’s skin from the very first page, I absolutely loved reading Blood Red Road.” Jill Murphy, Bookbag

“The writing is strong, and in Saba, the author has created a tough rebel to root for… the author’s wonderful cast of characters and Saba’s epic journey to save her brother will keep you glued to the pages.”

    Full of action and adventure

    The book Blood Red Road is very descriptive and has some interesting characters, the main character Saba is really shown to be stubborn and at some points her weak side is shown. There were parts of the book when it made your heart sink a bit, I think that I would recommend this book to people who like action and adventure books because it has quite abit of that.

    The way that the book was written in made it special, the fact that it wasn't using standard english, but that could also be a downside for people who don't like to read things like that.

    I didn't really like the book but that was because I got slightly bored of it at times, but it was a good book and people with different tastes of reading to me would probably enjoy it, but I just wasnt into it!
