At the end of BLOOD RED ROAD, Saba rescues her brother, kills a friend out of mercy, and parts ways with her heart's desire, Jack. All of these haunt her in this dystopian sequel—plus she has a price on her head. Narrator Heather Lind continues to maintain suspense as Saba struggles externally with her ungrateful twin and internally with her nightmares and self-doubt. A new character adds comic relief, and Lind makes use of her wide vocal range to fully flesh out the supporting cast. In print this middle book is a long, dusty journey filled with disparate and disagreeable villains. Lind adds a crackling energy like the static charge of an approaching storm to keep the action—and the listening—unstoppable. M.M.O.
