4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic series! 9 May 2014
By Book Passion for Life TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
What a read! Raging Star is a surprisingly different read from what I anticipated but it was still go good that I couldn’t put it down, and it’s definitely an unforgettable finale!

Moira Young is back with the long awaited finale in her Dustlands series, and this time we see Saba, Jack and the guerilla band trying to take down DeMalo and his Tonton militia in a number of different ways. Saba’s hiding many secrets – especially her connection with DeMalo and that one weak moment where Saba gives into him, that moment where Jack can never find out about. But now she knows that DeMalo is evil, his visions are lies and she is more determined than ever to try and win this war the right way. Can Saba do the impossible and save New Eden from DeMalo? But most importantly can she keep all her loves ones safe?

Raging Star is every bit enjoyable as Blood Red Road and Rebel Heart, and it’s one that’s left me emotionally drained because there’s just so much going on that your emotions are tugged all over the place – but in a such a good way. I am completely fascinated with Moira Young’s writing and her unique story telling about these amazing characters and their journey for survival. It was one heck of a journey and I still can’t believe it’s over!

I’ve always been a fan of Saba’s. I love that she isn’t perfect and makes mistakes like any normal person. I like that she’s hard-headed and stands up for what she believes in, but mostly I love her love for her family, friends and of course Jack. Without her lover for them, she would be a completely different person. Their love is what makes her stronger, makes her work harder at achieving the life they all want. Even when people do wrong by her, she still continues to love them. I admire her for that.

4.0 out of 5 stars A definite read 1 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
while I really enjoyed the first book in this series, I found the second one a bit slow and I had doubts about whether to read this one however I am glad I did as this book really provided a conclusion to the series and I feel like it finally showed us Sabas true character and allowed me to fall in love with her. The ending was amazing with many surprises along the way. However the book was slow to start off but I would defiantly recommend it to any one who enjoys action with romance mixed in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Trilogy 28 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback
I was gifted the first two books of this series & read them just prior to the third one being released. Ordered Raging Star & was not disappointed. Recommend these books! Will be interested to read more of Moira Young's work.

Having read the first two books, this final book rounds off the trilogy well. Great suspense and twists you don't see coming.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 26 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
'Blood Red Road' was such an amazing read. Every chapter felt more exciting than the last and the entire book felt very movie-friendly and I could easily see this becoming a massive blockbuster hit.

'Rebel Heart' was slightly weaker than 'Blood Red Road' and I found myself struggling a little to get through certain chapters. Ultimately though there was enough good stuff to outweight any bad and I was very excited and was anticpating the last book of the trilogy for sometime.

It's disappointing then to be rating 'Raging Star' with just 2 stars but I have to be honest and say I struggled to get through this book and often, at times, I didn't even want to pick it up. Having to force yourself to read something because you want to get to the end is not what makes a good reading experience or a good book!

I feel like with each book the settings and the stories have become more and more sparce and the action and adventure became less and less existent (almost non-existent in the last book) and it became an effort to enjoy what I was reading.

Obviously stories and characters need to evolve and this book definitely represented that however I feel there was too much of a 'lull' between certain parts of the stories and although I enjoyed the final few chapters most of the book (only in my opinion) felt overly and unnecesarily long.

I've read that these books are to be made into films at some stage. I feel book one would be a great adaption to the big screen and book two to a degree. Book 3 would be somewhat of a borefest so if it happens I can see them having to re-write parts of the story in inject some life into it.

Is it worth a read then?
