I finally got to read the last book in the trilogy!!!!! I literally finished it in 2 hours because I just HAD to find out how everything ended!

Rebel Heart by Moira Young

This is the second book in the Dustlands series, the sequel to Blood Red Road (which, if you read my previous post, i enjoyed immensely).
