Summary
When her twin brother, Lugh, is kidnapped, eighteen-year-old Saba vows to rescue him. Saba’s journey takes her to the lawless city of Hopetown, where drug-addled citizens live in a world of violence and destruction. Here Saba becomes a fierce competitor as she fights for her life, earning the nickname Angel of Death. She also learns more about Lugh’s fate, meets the handsome thief Jack, and The Free Hawks, a band of revolutionaries. In a race against time, Saba and her new allies risk it all to rescue Lugh.
Critique
This fast-paced dystopian novel offers a little bit of everything--stark landscapes, bloody battles, and even a bit of humor and romantic tension. The story is written in dialect, which may be a challenge for some readers. Saba is a complex character who displays enormous growth and development. Science fiction lovers will not want to miss this one. Highly recommend.
