Book 2 (Book 1: Blood Red Road)
Saba has rescued her kidnapped brother and defeated the fanatical Tonton. But the price to be paid for her violent victory is terrible. Jack has disappeared–and can no longer be trusted. A new and formidable enemy is on the rise in the dustlands. No one is safe. And Saba must confront the terrible secret hidden in the darkest depths of her soul.
So this book wasn’t as great as the first one was but it was still fairly decent. Not much action occurred but it was more of internal action within Saba. She struggled the whole book with what she has done, who she is, and what she is destined to do. By the end of the book she still hasn’t figured out who she is and what she is destined to do. I liked that her character is very flawed which makes her a lot more realistic. Lugh was really annoying in the book. He didn’t seem to understand that people change and things weren’t going to be the way they were. Emmi didn’t really have much of a part in this book which was kind of disappointing since her and Saba grew so much together in the previous book. This book needed more Jack. DeMalo makes an appearance in this book and his character is expanded upon but I don’t like the direction his character went. I would have prefered him to remain a mysterious character which is given depth instead of the role he took. It didn’t seem very DeMalo like. I liked the general plot line of the book, a new leader that is revolutionizing the world but not necessarily in the best interest of everyone. However, it was kind of anticlimatic. Overall it is a fairly interesting book.
This book is a part of a trilogy so there will be a third book in the future.
