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.
I have to say though, when Jack was introduced, i loved him. Later on in the story i disliked the constant bickering between him and Saba but in the end I loved their whole relationship. I guess I’m a sucker for love.
Definitely a book to give a chance, it won’t steer you wrong. Especially if you enjoy character growth, because Saba has a lot of growing to do and it’s an enriching experience to watch as she progresses through the journey to find her brother, Lugh.
First Line: Lugh got born first.
