Blood Red Road by Moria Young

Title: Blood Red Road
Author: Moria Young
Pages: 492
Genre: Dystopia

My rating:

golden star
'They call me the Angel of Death'

I don't think I've ever given a book a golden star before (apart from the Hunger Games)!! But this book just had to be given more than five stars. It is Genius. Amazing. Outstanding. <Insert other good adjectives here>. I had no idea what would happen in this story even when I read the blurb my brain was still puzzling out what was going to happen in the next 492 pages. But it was so good that I finished it within three days plus I was on holiday which means less time for reading. The suspense was killing at points and I got really annoyed with some of the main characters on the second half of the book.

The plot is very unique as it contains no speech (or no speech marks- however you like to put it) or no chapters just nine different sections of the story. The language used is different and more like slang but don't let that put you off because you get used to it in no time at all and the author only used one point of view (I hate it when the chapters begin and the character changes). I can't give too much of the book away because then I'll spoil it for you for when you read it but this is the basics. The narrator of the story is called Saba and one day her twin brother is stolen and she knows she has to get him back. So she journeys out - just her and she doesn't relise how many people are actually on her side.

This is a book that when you finish it you will remember the last line for days and it will stick with you for a long time. I recommend this to people who like:
