Blood Red Road (Dust Lands Series #1)

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands Series #1) - Also posted on my blog http://snugglingonthesofa.wordpress.com/I know this book has been about for a while, and I do remember seeing it, but not picking it up. Well a librarian friend of mine recommended it, so I had to read it. For anyone who hasn't read or heard of 'Blood Red Road' by Moira Young, be aware that the grammar and spelling isn't good, as it's written in the style of a teenager who cannot read or write (as far as I'm aware). So it does take some getting used to, and might put people of entirely. After about 50 pages of so, I kind of didn't really notice it, which shows just how good the writing is.When Saba's brother Lugh is captured by the Tonton (baddies), it's up to her to find him and bring him back. So along with her younger sister Emmi, she goes on a journey to find him, discovering more about herself in the process.I love this book! To be honest I hadn't really heard much about this book on the blogosphere, but I thought I'd give it a try. As a forewarning, it is very addictive! The book is split up into geographical areas. I think the character development is exceptional, as we go from seeing Seba as a lost girl, with only one girl; to get Lugh back home. She is forced into a world that she didn't know existed, and experiences its' cruelties. She has to grow up quickly; learning that not everyone can be trusted, but equally, that she can rely on others. We see friendships formed, arguments and loss.There is quite a lot of action in this book, but it is also quite emotional. I would definately recommend it! So much that I have started the sequel straight away :)
