Raging Star Press Reviews

Praise for the series:

'If a better book for teenagers is published this year, I'll be surprised.' The Times

'Has an elemental power, unfolding across achingly barren landscapes, full of blistering hotwinds and swirling clouds of orange dust.' New York Times

'An astonishing debut novel which had us all hooked from the beginning to the unpredictable end.' The Costa Children's Book Award judges

‘Outstanding… think The Hunger Games meets The Road.’ - Bookseller

‘I absolutely loved reading Blood Red Road… I can't imagine a single reader that won't fall in love with Nero, the perspicacious crow.… Blood Red Road is going to win more than a few followers. And it will deserve them.’ - The Book Bag

‘Saba is a fantastically written character, she's a strong feisty heroine, with bags of guts and self determination which sees her through this non-stop rumble of hardship and adventure.’ - Mr Ripley’s Enchanted Books

Blood Red Road is a fast-paced story filled with adventure, excitement, furious violence and a lustful romance. Young’s writing reminded me a little of Tod’s voice in The Knife of Never Letting Go, and the strong feisty female character reminded me of Katniss from The Hunger Games. Definitely worth a read!’ - Chicklish

‘Saba tells us that she “aint’t afeared of nuthin”, which is lucky, because she faces a fight for survival from the very beginning… Blood Red Road has been compared to The Hunger Games and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. It also reminds me Russell Hoban’s Ridley Walker, although the distinctive dialect in which Young writes is much more accessible. Blood Red Road is inventive, intriguing, exciting and definitely worth a read.’ - LitBlog
