This is the next book in the series Dust Lands by Moira Young. I am trying to continue my goal of finishing book series that I have begun. I started this series with the Young Adult Book Club. Here is the goodreads description:
I really enjoyed Blood Red Road, the first book in the series. I thought the world really came alive. I thought the author did this same in this book. I could feel myself in the environment. This book takes place in a world that we have destroyed though no one knows how. We are known as Wreckers and have somehow destroyed the earth and made it this desolate landscape. Young does an amazing job of making the reader feel like they are in this universe.
The characters are still great. This time around we get to know Lugh.. the Saba's brother. Who we really didn't get to know and see in book one. He was a really controlling guy throughout the book. And then of course we have Saba.. whom I felt was like a baby in this book. Everything was about her. And even after her crew of people cross a big desert to find her she tries to send them away. Like they are really going to leave after that long journey. That annoyed me a little.
Now for the spoilers.. yes spoilers do not read ahead if you don't want to know things. So in this book Jake somehow is on the bad team. Which we find out later is because he is trying to be some sort of spy. And apparently there was no way to get the news to Saba. So the he ends up capturing Emmi. Well after he captures Emmi Saba runs off and then ends up with DeMalo and then sleeps with him. I liked this twist at first (and I despise love triangles) but THEN Saba kept thinking she might be pregnant and that is huge. Like what? Is there going to be baby drama in the next book? Oh wait.. and it's not just a love triangle... it's a love square because Tommo still loves her too. Wow.
End spoilers... I do enjoy this series. I really think it's edgy and the author takes chances. I can't wait for the third book. I wasn't approved for an ARC of this one.. so maybe the next one I will be. I also love the new covers for the books.. especially Blood Red Road:
