Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Your typical 2nd book Normally the second book is boring as it tries to set up a larger plot line that the first book didn't present. But not this one. It was really good and after finishing it I couldn't wait to read the next one!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good story I liked the first story, but took a while to read this. I found it really hard to get into the way it was narrated and almost put the book down a couple of times. I was a bit frustrated by how much time the main character spends being yelled at and put down by her supposed friends. Almost as much time as I spent being frustrated by the girl's priorities in this book. I'm almost dreading reading the last book. But, it has a strong female character ( a couple side characters that are also female) who is motivated and making decisions on her own, making mistakes and learning (hopefully) from them. She just needs to learn that she doesn't need a man to make her complete.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Decent Sequel I loved the first book, but only liked this one. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but Saba isn't the Saba I fell in love with after the events from the first book. Just finished it though, and very excited for the third installment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rebel Heart I like Saba as a character. A good sequel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's all right, some bumps here and there **Spoilers ahead, you’ve been warned** First, it’s recommended you read Blood Red Road before you jump into this one. It starts off a little later in the storyline but it’s best to get your background information so you can better understand the second one of the series. I notice with the second book of almost every series I’ve read, they hit a bump in the plotline and it either goes very well, or sometimes it goes not so good, or terribly bad. In this case, it went a little lackluster. However it wasn’t the best, but it wasn’t the worst either. I suppose sometimes it’s hard to live up to the how high the bar is set when the first novel was written and released. As readers, we expect the same kind of emotional excitement. So what I notice is a trend in the second book of the series as well, the main character always, (almost always) have their emo moments. This brings the plot down and establishes a lull and you’re left with this mopey character who’s on a complete pity trip while things are hitting the fan everyone around them. For crying out loud Saba. Seriously? I did not expect this from you. Sure, we’re all entitled our own moments but what ever happened to the pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off and carry on motto? We need more of that instead of ‘woe is me the world is against me, I can’t take this anymore’ sort of thinking. So I’d have to say this aspect of the novel, I didn’t like so much. I wasn’t expecting Saba to meet DeMalo so soon in the series. But oh my goodness he’s bloody insane. His way of thinking of his purpose makes you want to slug him one but you understand given the circumstances and the living conditions of the setting, yeah. It’s enough to make you go completely batshit crazy and think of these things as a way of survival or a way of life in order to make things ‘better’. What baffles me is….she ends up sleeping with him and just wow….seriously? Sleeping with the enemy doesn’t give you any bonus points here Saba darling. So...why? Just why? Don’t give me this emotional fragility crap. That’s getting old and useless. The pace of the plot is noticeably slower given that perhaps this second book is going to be geared towards character development. Lugh’s still a twit and he wasn’t that likable in the first place - plus you feel like asking what the heck his problem is because he’s just so filled with resentment and anger. Jack is hardly anywhere in the book. He disappears and doesn’t interact with Saba. Still a mystery character with no answers. Sort of made me wonder, then why was he mentioned so much in the first one, to have no place in this one? Frustrating considering he played a big part and his character was one of the most likable in the story. So overall, it’s okay. Second books in series always go through ruts and patches. I’m reading through this series because I really did like the first one and I’ll finish this one hoping the ending will go with an awesome bang so I can forget Rebel Heart.

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.

Editorial Reviews

PRAISE FOR Rebel Heart:"Rebel Heart is a kick to the gut; a book that will rip your heart out, tear it to shreds, and then apologize while trying to paste it back together. An emotional whirlwind, every second of Rebel Heart is worth the agony. It is a stunning continuation of what I already believed to be a perfect novel. Young has once again amazed me and left me breathless." —MTV's Hollywood Crush"Young is even more ambitious this time out, interweaving multiple plot threads and narrative voices. . . . Her immersive storytelling will lure readers deeper into this dangerous, starkly lovely terrain." —Publishers Weekly "Simple language and straightforward storytelling characterize Young's second book in the Dust Lands Trilogy. . . . Young's invented rural dialect ('You bin hit! Pull it out! I says.'), truncated phrases and curt, simple sentences make this a quick dash of a read. Plot-driven and action-packed with violence, romance and intrigue." —Toronto Star“A solid and emotional sequel buoyed by Moira Young's most excellent writing. . . . I was utterly engrossed through the entire read.” —Recovering Potter Addict
