Raging Star (Dust Lands, #3) by Moira Young - ADVISABLE

Young, Moira  Raging Star (Dust Lands, #3), 432 pgs.  Margeret K. McElderry Books, 2014.  $17.99  Content: Language: PG-13 (68 swears); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence (war violence): PG-13.  

Saba has accepted her role as the leader of her small band of rebels.  She knows that they need to take down DeMalo, the head of the cult-like group of Settlers, but she still is confused about her feelings towards DeMalo and Jack.  With her family and friends, Saba has one week to upset the rebellion, before DeMalo starts to attack her small group, but it seems as though someone in her group is working with DeMalo behind her back.  Trouble seems to outweigh any good, but will Saba be strong enough to lead people to their freedom.  

This is the third and final book in the Dust Lands trilogy.  At times I was impatient for the climax, but the small stories throughout lead to a better understanding of the twists and turns at the end.  I loved following Saba on her journey in this interesting world and I am sad that it is over.  

HS-ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
