Blood Red Road

Saba’s twin is golden. She is his living shadow. He is strong and beautiful. She is scrawny and dark. Nothing will separate them… Raised in isolated Silverlake, Saba knows nothing of the brutal world beyond. But when her twin is snatched by dark riders, red rage fills her soul. How will Saba find him in a wild, scorching, lawless land? Racing across the cruel dustlands to find him, she can spare no one. Not even the boy who saves her life. She must silence her heart to survive. Blood will spill.
