About the Book
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 four cloaked horsemen capture Lugh, Saba’s world is shattered, and she embarks on a quest to get him back.
Suddenly thrown into the lawless, ugly reality of the outside world, Saba discovers she is a fierce fighter, an unbeatable survivor, and a cunning opponent. Teamed up with a handsome daredevil named Jack and a gang of girl revolutionaries called the Free Hawks, Saba’s unrelenting search for Lugh stages a showdown that will change the course of her own civilization
I am speechless! As I’m writing this I’m still struggling to find the right words to describe how the story, the characters, the world and just the overall FEELING of this book sucked my soul in rabbit hole of wondrousness. I can only say I say ONE THING…
THIS BOOK STOLE MY SOUL!
I really don’t know how to describe how this book made me feel! Except maybe that this book is perfection! Every word, every sentence in this book is perfection! Every sentence builds the worlds, develops the characters, advances the plot…
I know it has been said before but the best way to describe this book is a mix of The Road, Max Mad and Hunger Games. Imagine the desolation of The Road, the psychotically bizarre world and characters of Mad Max and a rural brave girl name Saba Katnissing her way through all of it.
It is real but magical, rough but poetic… It’s all the wonderful things ever existed at once!
Moira is just a wizard! She develops the characters and paints the scenery and settings of this grunge world almost in every step the characters take but in a way that is just blended perfectly with the action without slowing you down.
The story is told in first person and from word ONE you will be mesmerized by the desolated atmosphere and the captivating voice of uneducated Saba. I was hopelessly enthralled by the realism of her slang so in tuned with the ravaged, decayed post-apocalyptic world where she lived. 🙂
“Ain’t you figured it out yet? It’s all in his head! There ain’t nothing written in the stars! There ain’t no great plan. The world goes on. Our lives just go on in this godforsaken place. And that’s it. Until the day we die”
I loved Saba but.. Oh my the ALL wicked characters in this book! I don’t know if I want to kiss them hug them or pet them like a cute but smelly puppies! The characters are so fantastic! Simple, natural, rural, and raw. Even Nero Saba’s crow pet is great! Especially Nero if you ask me. Since there is no love triangle I don’t have to pick a team but…
I DO WANT TO PICK A TEAM
AND THAT’S NERO’S TEAM
Nero is one of my favorites of the characters in this bizarroland!
If you haven’t done so yet, grab this audio book [It HAS to be the audio book] RIGHT NOW!
Seriously, this book is THE BEST Dystopian/Apocalyptic I have ever read! I can’t remember a better book at this moment!
As I mentioned in my “Magical Audio Books” post, I tried reading a few pages of the real book and I couldn’t get through it because of all the slang. I’m SOOOOO happy I tried as audio book! This audio book is just SPECTACULAR! (the narrator, Heather Lind, does FABULOUS with the slang and the drawl giving a unique voice to each crazy character.)
Hope you enjoy my GR updates!
