Raging Star (Dust Lands #3)
   by: Moira Young
 
Expected Publication: April 15, 2014
 

Saba is ready to seize her destiny and defeat DeMalo and the Tonton...until she meets him and he confounds all her expectations with his seductive vision of a healed earth, a New Eden. DeMalo wants Saba to join him, in life and work, to create and build a healthy, stable, sustainable world…for the chosen few. The few who can pay.

Jack’s choice is clear: to fight DeMalo and try to stop New Eden. Still uncertain, her connection with DeMalo a secret, Saba commits herself to the fight. Joined by her brother, Lugh, anxious for the land in New Eden, Saba leads an inexperienced guerilla band against the powerfully charismatic DeMalo, in command of his settlers and the Tonton militia. What chance do they have? Saba must act. And be willing to pay the price.


GAH! I was SO pissed off at the second book in this series Rebel Heart! Young took things in a completely unforeseeable direction and I was NOT a fan! So I really need her to redeem herself in this third book!

  1. The first book I enjoyed for the most part. The second book she lost me. I was not impressed with the 2nd book at all. I'll wait to read reviews before I dive into this one. I will be watching to see what you have to say.

    1. Kate- the second book I was not very happy with either. But I really got caught up in the first, so I'm really hoping the third book redeems itself. I will let you know for sure!

  2. This is just another series I haven't started yet, but this time it's because I have heard some really negative things about the second book so I'll wait to see what people think of this one. Hope you'll enjoy it. Great pick Jessica :)

    Tanja @ Ja čitam, a ti?

    1. I really enjoyed the first book. This series isn't for everyone, because some people really struggled with the writing style, but it's worth a try. I hope you like it Monique!

  12. I haven't picked this series up mainly because I don't think she uses quotation marks for her dialogue if I remember correctly, and that always drives me crazy. i really hope you end up liking this one better than the 2nd though!

    1. Aly- a lot of people really struggled with this series because of the writing style- and I didn't think I could get used to it either. Somehow, I did though. But thank you! I hope the third book is better. I need her to fix the damage she did! LOL.

    1. Yeah- you should be scared Michele! Moira really pissed me off. I could NOT believe the direction she took. I mean, seriously. I was FLOORED. I loved the first book too though! I don't know. Maybe you should read it, since I need someone to vent to about it!
