Teaser Tuesday: Blood Red Road by Moira Young

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!  

Blood Red Road by Moira Young.

Blood Red Road -
Margaret K. McElderry Books

I cain't speak. Cain't breathe. Lugh's gone. Gone. My golden heart is gone.
I kneel in the dust. The tears roll down my face. An a hard red rain starts to fall.
-- page 32

Jack, I says.
He stands there, his arms crossed over his chest, his hat down low over his eyes. He smiles his lopsided smile. My stupid stummick does a flip.
-- page 243

Actually, I bought this book for somebody else. But then it stood there, waiting and waiting, so I just had to start. :)  And the story got me hooked, even if the writing style is a bit difficult as Saba is using her dialect all throughout the book. But you get used to it.
Then there's Jack. I liked that cheeky daredevil from the start and hope he stays for a while. ;)
Unfortunately until now I didn't fully understand the world, Saba is living in. It's all a bit hazy. Luckily Blood Red Road is just the beginning of the Dust Lands Trilogy with much to explore in the next books.

What's it that you're reading this week? Tease us in the comments!

The first teaser is sad. My teaser comes from Miss Match by Erynn Magnum.
