Dustlands Trilogy

Ran across a a book at Goodwill and now I must get the rest of the series because I really enjoyed the first one, and I actually got to start it with the first one in the series for a change.......................that's a damn miracle! The first book in the series by Author Moira Young is Blood Red Road. It's an easy read, but good. " Better than The Hunger Games...This book will blow you "-MTV's Hollywood Crush. Only problem is, now I'm talking the way they do in the book. lol It's a teen series, but like The hunger games it is a good read. I like this story a lot better then The Hunger Games.

Niro Rebel Heart
To escape, she will have to fight. To survive, she will have to lead.
Saba has spent her whole life in Silverlake, a dried-up wasteland ravaged by constant dust storms. That's fine by her, as long as her beloved twin brother, Lugh, is around. But when a monster sandstorm arrives bearing four cloaked horsemen, Saba's world is shattered. Lugh is captured, and Saba embarks on a quest to get him back.
Suddenly thrown into the lawless, ugly reality of the world outside, 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. 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.
