Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good read This book was paced more slowly than the first but equally easy to read. The author really makes you feel what Saba feels and draws you deeper and deeper into her world. Complicated characters and even more complicated relationships made for a nail biting, heart wrenching and butterflies in the tummy kind of read. Definitely recommend sticking with the series and finishing the trilogy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad. Slower and less interesting than the first, our heroine suffers in this adventure from a moping attitude that makes reading from her point of view hard to take sometimes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boring and Not as good as the first but good events Not as good as the first. It was boring and didn't really speed up till the end. The events were good but it seemed as though they were stretched out then put together really fast. The EVents were kinda fun too in some parts but that was about it. :/

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good book but not so much the ghost hunting part Like some readers hv pointed out earlier, I am not a big fun of the first few chapters, the idea of supernature, star reader or the lightning reader is a bit too much for me to take and what in a world does Demalo come from, his crush on saba is not so unexpected but bizzar in a bad way. But still, as always love the fast pace of the storylines and I do find Saba more likeable than the first book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A new and improved Saba! Better than the first!! This second book in the Dust Lands trilogy picks up right where Blood Red Road left off. Jack is heading for the storm belt to find Ike's girlfriend, Molly Pratt, to give her the bad news that Ike is dead. Following the death of Vicar Pinch during the battle atop Pine Top Hill, someone named The Pathfinder has taken his place and his stewards say that he is going to heal the earth. Who is the mysterious Pathfinder? When word gets back to Saba that Jack is running with the Tonton, she can't believe her ears. She thinks that it must be a mistake because Jack would never betray her or work with the Tonton. Is this all part of Jack's plot to destroy the Tonton from the inside, or has he been playing Saba all along? I enjoyed Rebel Heart so much more than Blood Red Road! I like this new and improved version of Saba, the one who doesn't worship the ground that Lugh walks on and doesn't put him on a pedestal. Saba realizes that what she has gone through has changed her, and she isn't the same person anymore...and neither is Lugh. Saba has much more strength and confidence than she did before, and she is so much better for it! She is also much more caring towards Emmi; it was her lack of love and concern for Emmi that bugged me so much in Blood Red Road. I want to know more about the Pathfinder and how he figures into Saba's future. I have my suspicions, and I can't wait to find out if I'm right! In my opinion, Young's sophomore book is stronger than her debut. I love the character arcs that she has developed, and I am really intrigued to see how everything pulls together in the last book of the trilogy, which is slated for release in January 2014. I even enjoyed Heather Lind's narration more this time around. I think that it is her vocalization of Jack that I dislike, and his role in this book is not as prominent. I received this audiobook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Book!!! Amazing Series!!! The storyline is brilliant and reading the book transports you to another dimension many years later. Although this book is heart-pounding, gut wrenching, and mind blowing, the only thing I absolutely could not stand was how Saba was characterized. Saba got onto my nerves so bad at times that I was almost tempted to stop reading altogether. I hated it the most when she never listened to anything anyone tells her to do, and therefore endangering everyone who is trying to help her. She never thinks about others and only thinks about herself and Jack, even though she keeps on saying how much she cares about Lugh and everyone else. But I still think Rebel Heart is a real stunner and I recommend this book to everyone who loves thrill, adventure, and a bit of romance. Sorry about the rant, by the way, but I really had to get it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fantastic Sequel! I'll keep it short and sweet. This book is as amazing, if not better, then the first. Rebel Heart takes you back to the first novel, where you will learn to understand different aspects of the first book-certin events, and the actions and feelings of the characters. I loved the romantic aspect of this book, and how all the guys love Saba, and how shes to "open" when she does those... Things that she does. I know she'll end up with Jack... She has to... Anyway just read this book. This series. It will amaze you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Realistic and Raw The Good Stuff Intriguing , realistic character development for Saba - nothing at all stereotypical Fast paced Fascinating new characters Enjoyed the little hints that pertain to what happened to the world Emphasizes the incredible willingness to survive that we humans have Liked knowing a lot more about Jack's back-story Ending has me dying to read the final book Portrayal of grief very dark, honest and real I know a lot of people dislike Saba, but I find her truly fascinating. She is damaged , flawed character, but I find that what is interesting about her. She never acts stereotypical, she makes mistakes, but she is trying and developing -- nice work Ms Young! Nice also to see Saba realizing what a jerk her brother is -- please oh please Ms Young, kill him off!!! The Not So Good Stuff A little repetitive at times Some highly questionable actions taken by certain characters (Trying to be spoiler free, so hope that makes sense) The writing style might be hard for most people, but I found it refreshing and worked for the characters Not lovin the cover, it's not bad, just sorta plain Still don't see the fascination for Lugh - he's a selfish jackass - plain and simple Favorite Quotes/Passages "What happens changes you. Fer good or ill, yer changed ferever. There ain't no goin back. No matter how many tears you cry. It sounds simple, but it ain't." "There are some people, she says, not many, who have within them the power to change things. The courage to act in the service of somethin greater than themselves." To change things, I says. Through their actions, she says, they can turn the tide of human affairs." They, I says. You mean me." "If restless spirits ride the Wraithway, they ain't Wreckers. They're nature spirits. The spirits of earth an water. Of air an plants an creatures. With every right to ride vengeance on men. No, Wrecker soul's don't roam the road. This place, this hell, is their home. They're caught in their rivers of fire, always an ferever drownin. Never, ever to be free. Their voices gutter in the flames. Take pity, fergive me, have mercy on me. Prisoners of their own destruction. Trapped till the end of time." Who Should/Shouldn't Read Definitely only for those who have read the first book If you haven't read Blood Red Road, but enjoy what I liken to Road Warrior for teens, check out Blood Red Road 4 Dewey's I received this from Random House in exchange for an honest review

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Blood Red Road"It's Mad Max and The Hunger Games meets True Grit. . . .The author moves between ruthless action and gorgeous, buttery narration. . . . In the hands of a lesser writer, that style might have dragged, but first-time author Young is talented, and she's just getting started. . . .This is a must-read, where girls rescue boys, and where the future looms up full of hope and loss, struggles and archetypes that give the story a timeless, classic edge." —The Globe and Mail"Eerie and adventurous. . . on par with Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games and Paolo Bacigalupi's Ship Breaker. . . .Blood Red Road has a cinematic quality that makes it white-hot. . . .The fervor is more than warranted." —LA Times"Brutal and thrilling." —The Wall Street Journal
