Rebel Heart by Moira Young is the second book in her Dust Lands trilogy. Set in the far distant post-apocalyptic world, this book carries on right where the last one left off. The main character, Saba is with her twin brother and younger sister, heading for sanctuary while the love of her life, Jack has gone to inform his friend of the death of her loved one. Of course, something happens that cause Saba and her friends to go back, while Jack appears to have turned traitor and joined with the enemy.

I really liked the first book in this series but I believe this book suffered a little story wise. It felt very much as if the drama was forced simply to justify the length of the trilogy. Certain situations have been set up and I assume will be resolved in the third book. Still, I enjoyed the writing and the world building and certainly plan to continue on with the third book at some time. ( )

Scorching Hot!!- 4.5 stars...

And I'm not referring to just the dust lands! : ) DeMalo, DeMalo, DeMalo -he is one delicious bad boy! He's a little twisted in the mind though. : ( He's also in love with Saba, well his version of love. Then we have Jack- Jack's one of the good guys. He brings out the best in everyone & he's the love of Saba's life. He's also in love with her too. Then we have Tommo who actually makes the 4th wheel on this ride. He's in love with Saba too though, or thinks he is, and wants her to see him as a man. He's only fifteen so I don't necessarily count him, but love is a powerful emotion and possible weapon so we can't underestimate him or rule him out just yet. 
If I'm going to endure a love triangle though then this is how I like them to be- edgy, strong chemistry, hot characters and we have the good vs. bad boy thing going. Plus the triangle actually plays into the plot but it doesn't overshadow it. It's not just some sappy, back & forth brooding, irrelevant side show-like the last triangle I endured in the Taken trilogy. Ughh!
This second book was a very strong follow-up to the first. If I had to choose which one I liked the best, it would be a really hard choice to make. This one ended with a bang too so make sure you already have the third book on hand because you'll definitely want more when you finish this one. I'm so glad I did! I'm reading the final book now and I'm still thinking back to that final scene and wondering when it's going to pop-up. I know it's going to come back to bite somehow, it's just a matter of when.

OK so Andrew and I were absolutely hooked on this book! Honestly, the first one, in this series was good but there really was very little in terms of intensity and some of the deaths seemed forced and an afterthought honestly. The writing however made the first one a 4 star read, otherwise a 3 star it would have received.

This second installment however was a kick into overdrive. The writing continues on a high note but the character development, and WTF moments rocked this read for me! I am still in recovery mode and anxiously awaiting the continuation (which is only a few hours away).

Definitely not a book to spoil with too much detail so I will just leave with this...if you have even considered reading this, do yourself a favor and start it NOW. The best part is that the entire trilogy is out! For me, this is a saving grace...I cannot imagine had I had to wait months for the continuation.
