Blood Red Road

by Moira Young

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. Blood Red Road has a searing pace, a poetically minimal writing style, violent action, and an epic love story. Moira Young is one of the most promising and startling new voices in teen fiction.

Corazón de fuego

by Moira Young

Saba tiene 18 años y desde que nació vive en Silverlake, una zona solitaria y yerma, asolada por constantes tormentas de arena. Entre las ruinas de una antigua civilización, Saba y sus hermanos #Lugh, su gemelo, y Emmi, la más pequeña de la familia# sobreviven como pueden trabajando en la modesta granja de su padre. Un día, la tormenta de polvo más devastadora arrasa la zona, y tras ella aparecen cuatro jinetes, vestidos con largas túnicas negras, que acaban con la vida de su padre y se llevan a Lugh como prisionero. Rota de dolor, Saba inicia un larguísimo viaje a pie para encontrar a su hermano. Un viaje épico en el que conocerá la injusticia, el mal y la muerte, pero también la amistad, el coraje y el amor verdadero. Y descubrirá que, con la ayuda de las personas a quienes quiere, puede conseguir todo, absolutamente todo, lo que se proponga...«Lugh nació primero, sí. El día más corto de todo el año, cuando el sol está muy bajo en el cielo. Luego yo, dos horas más tarde. Eso es todo, más o menos. Lugh va primero, siempre primero, y yo, pues le sigo detrás. Y no pasa nada. Eso está bien. Es como tiene que ser.»

Raging Star
