Blood Red Road
UNABRIDGED
By Moira Young
Narrated by Heather Lind
Length: 11 hrs and 17 mins
Release Date: 06-07-11


Saba has spent her whole life in Silverlake, a dried-up wasteland ravaged by constant sandstorms. The Wrecker civilization has long been destroyed, leaving only landfills for Saba and her family to scavenge from. That's fine by her, as long as her beloved twin brother, Lugh, is around. But when a monster sandstorm arrives, along with four cloaked horsemen, Saba's world is shattered. Lugh is captured, and Saba embarks on an epic quest to get him back.

Suddenly thrown into the lawless, ugly reality of the world outside of desolate Silverlake, Saba is lost without Lugh to guide her. So perhaps the most surprising thing of all is what Saba learns about herself: she's a fierce fighter, an unbeatable survivor, and a cunning opponent. And she has the power to take down a corrupt society from the inside. Teamed up with a handsome daredevil named Jack and a gang of girl revolutionaries called the Free Hawks, Saba stages a showdown that will change the course of her own civilization.

  6. I love the narrators voice. I have listened to a few audiobooks where the female narrator has a softer voice and it has always kept my attention. I think it would work for this one.

  7. This narrator sounds a lot like the first book's narrator. Not too bad, could be a good listen.

  8. This is a tough one for me. I like the readers voice, but I don't think she is great for this book. I feel like the dialect isn't really coming out the way I imagined it while reading the book. I think I would still like the audio though since I do like the reader.

  13. Of all the readers so far, I like this one the best. She's amazing! Her voice isn't monotone and flat, and for the different characters her voice changes are perfect. She fits Saba's slang into her speech amazingly!

  19. I agree with Brandi, I listened to Blood Red Road with this narrator in its entirety and she is WONDERFUL. She is just how I imagine Saba...this is one of my fave Dystopian novels ever & I cannot WAIT for Rebel Heart!!!

  20. I like this narrator - sounds young but not like a little kid. She still has her youth, but also awareness of the situation around her.
