Saba lives in Silverlake, a wasteland ravaged by constant sandstorms where her family scavenge from landfills left by the long-gone Wrecker civilization. After four cloaked horsemen kidnap her beloved twin brother Lugh, she teams up with daredevil Jack and the Free Hawks, a girl gang of Revolutionaries.
Saba learns that she is a fierce fighter, an unbeatable survivor, and a cunning opponent. And she has the power to take down a corrupt society from the inside. Saba and her new friends stage a showdown that change the course of her civilization.
This book is a very unique read – in terms of the prose/writing style, and the setting. It may not be everyone’s ‘cup of tea’ though. I was gripped from the very beginning and read the whole book in less than 24 hours. I loved Saba, she’s prickly and fiesty and can come across as not-altogher-that-nice but I actually really, really liked her character. I was a little put out with her at the start for her lack of regard for Emmi but she redeemed herself later on. And I loved the whole cage-fighting theme, very kick-ass. A must read for anyone that loves a fast-paced, action packed adventure with a strong female protagonist and a good dollop of romance. A few hints/teasers dropped subtly into the plot which I assume will be addressed in the rest of the series. Off to download Books 2 and 3 now. Exceptional Book in my opinion.
