To recap, in Blood Red Road, Saba travelled the Dustlands on a mission to rescue her twin brother Lugh from the clutches of the Tonton, with her little sister Emmi, the Free Hawks and the enigmatic and dangerously attractive Jack helping her along the way. In Rebel Heart, the twins have been reunited and they head off west with Emmi and their deaf friend Tommo to make a new life for themselves in the fertile lands of Big Water. But Saba is troubled by ghosts from her past and a deep yearning for her `heart's desire', Jack, who has left them to deliver some sad news to a friend. Saba thought that when she had Lugh back, things could return to normal - but what they each lived through when they were separated has driven a wedge between them. As they travel they see troubling signs of a new, frighteningly organised Tonton force rising. And when a cryptic message arrives from Jack, headstrong Saba determinedly sets off alone to track him down. As usual, whether she likes it or not, her friends aren't far behind. Much to Lugh's frustration, it seems that fate is set to drag them all into the fray once again.
When I read Blood Red Road, I was gripped by Saba's unique narrative voice, spoken in a catching dialect (you'll end up talkin' like her - you cain't help yerself) and without the usual punctuation conventions of direct speech, which was a little unsettling at first, but totally absorbing once you get used to it.Read more ›
Mind you, whilst it does have some exposition as to what happened in the first book Blood Red Road (Dustlands) new readers might struggle to get into this, so you are much better off starting with said first book.
This one run for three hundred and ninety three pages. It's divided into ten chapters of varying length. Some are quite short others are a bit longer and one runs to almost sixty pages. These chapters are divided into sub sections via line breaks and a crow symbol, so easy reading breaks can be taken.
This also adopts the writing style seen in the first volume. First person present tense with a narrator who speaks in an accent, so some words may be a little tricky. But if you got used to that in Blood red road, you won't have any problem with it here.
As those who read Blood Red Road will know, our heroine Saba fell hard for a boy called Jack. But he had to go away. He narrates the first chapter of this book, where we see through his eyes that the threat of the militia called the Tonton hasn't entirely gone away.
Saba then takes over narration for the rest of the book. As we catch up with her and her brother and friends as they are trying to move on with their lives. But it's not coming easy for Saba. She has strange dreams. She misses Jack so very much. And eventually, she sets out to find him.
But with the Tonton still around, the course of true love will run anything but smooth.Read more ›
That being said, it was another riveting adventure across the hard world they live in and I enjoyed it.
Meeting back up with old friends and making new ones was cool. The Free Hawks are a great bunch and seeing Maev and Ash again was nice. I cant quite remember Creed but he made it all a bit more light-hearted with his flirting.
Lugh has been annoying me since he came back at the end of the last one and he didn't endear himself to me at all in this one, though at the end of the book I understand his feelings but that doesn't excuse him for the rest of the story.
DeMalo was also a little strange. And Saba's decision about two thirds through the book annoyed me too. Why would you do that?!?!
Jack got mixed up in trouble as usual but I still love his and Saba's relationship and I so hope they get some sort of HEA in the third book.
P.S. What's happening with that heart-stone??
