Cover Talk (2): Blood Red Road

Blood Red Road (Dustlands #1)
By Moira Young
Pages: 459
Publisher: Scholastic

I ain't afeared of nuthin

When saba's brother is stolen red rage fills her soul.
She races across the cruel dustlands to find him.
Saba can trust no one. Even the boy who saves her life.
She must silence her heart to survive.
Blood will spill.

The dustlands beyond remote Silverlake are ruined and lawless. Saba, born and raised there, has hardly seen a traveller pass. Until the day black-robbed riders arrive in search of her brother. They have been waiting to take him all his life.
Lugh is gone, and with him half of Saba's soul. She must find her twin, and nothing but death itself will stop her. On her dangerous journey, accompanied by a clever crow, Saba needs courage and spirit as strong and sharp as her crossbow to survive. Along the road come enemies and allies-and a mysterious young man with eyes the colour of moonlight ...

My opinion:

This time i wouldn't mind if any of these covers came into my hands. However, i do prefer the UK version.

2. Why i prefer the UK version:
  • It's plain, but, at the same time, it stands out. 
  • It gives you  a hint about the plot just by reading the title and the cover.
  • I love it's layout and the design.
  • I love the crow!

So, what do you guys think? Do you agree with me? Or not? Feel free to comment!
