DUST LANDS: REBEL HEART

By Moira Young

 

 

About Rebel Heart

 

Nothing is certain and no one is safe in the second book in the highly praised Dust Lands trilogy, which MTV’s Hollywood Crush blog called “better than The Hunger Games.”

It seemed so simple: Defeat the Tonton, rescue her kidnapped brother, Lugh, and then order would be restored to Saba’s world. Simplicity, however, has proved to be elusive. Now, Saba and her family travel west, headed for a better life and a longed-for reunion with Jack. But the fight for Lugh’s freedom has unleashed a new power in the dust lands, and a formidable new enemy is on the rise.

What is the truth about Jack? And how far will Saba go to get what she wants? In this much-anticipated follow-up to the riveting Blood Red Road, a fierce heroine finds herself at the crossroads of danger and destiny, betrayal and passion.

 

 

 

About Blood Red Road

 

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.

    I think I like the original cover for Blood Red Road the best, but these new ones aren't bad. They look more like mainstream YA covers, so hopefully that will attract new readers. I really like book 1 and can't wait to read book 2!

    I read Blood Red Road the week it came out, and I have been pulled my hair out since then waiting for Rebel Heart!!! I loved the first cover of BRR and was a little dissappoint with the cover change. BRR was such an excellent story I honestly dont care about not favoring the cover! I am gonna get this book and readit!!! XD

    What do you mean, am I excited? Of course I am excited. Why else do you think I am stalking every single mention of Rebel Heart? I am only looking forward to two books this month. This is one of them. I admit I am a bit scared what will happen and the seemingly ending wait until the next book. But it will be worth it. :)
