    I think the book was epic because it got to a sad strat then it got to a epic srart. It was sad when Lugh got kinapp in the book and Saba hid to find lugh . It was nice when the heart rock got hotter when Jack and Saba were in love . It was epic when they got to the montin and they killed the erath worms and some of the tontins .It was sad when Saba and Jack falled in the river with bones and mud. Thats why I think it was a epic book.

    I thought Blood Red Road was a great book because it was a battle and romance. Another reasons was it was in the middle west and cowboy and all that but it was like a if you think of lord of the ring it was almost that time. There was Jack Saba an Emmy Lei Tomoe Ink and then there was a gang that was called Free Hawk and there the bad guy called Tonton.

    Blood Red Road is a fantastic book with lots of interesting and funny charactors it is one of the best books ever.I think it was funny not many people died in the book witch is good, but there was a great part in the book when they were fighting the “HELL WORMS” it was cool to picture it in my head. This book is very good when it comes to picturing it in your head. My favorite part in Blood Red Road was when saba was in the cage if you think about it, it sounds really cool. I hope the other books are as good as this one because I plan to read them I cant wait until they have the other books what happens next in there adventure.

    This book shouldn’t have ended. I think that Ike dying was uncalled for. I mean, there was like, four pages left in the book, and then he dies. The death wasn’t all that dramatic, either. The Tonton just raised his bolt shooter and shot him. I guess it was somewhat dramatic considering Tommo jumped in front of him. You would’ve thought that Ike, being the best friend of Jack, the guy who has some sort of ‘fling’ with the main character, Saba, would have a more, ‘thrilling’ death. Something else that gets me is when Jack left. That’s like, a hit and run. You can’t just pour your feelings out to someone and then leave them. I have to admit, Jack was in fact doing the right thing by telling Molly about her love. However, if he really liked Saba as much as he said he did, wouldn’t he let her come along? It does seem normal coming from Jack. Mr. Purdon, I know you don’t read series. If the second book comes out while were still in school, and there’s a reasonable amount of days/weeks left, we should read it. Just saying.

      Not likely Kadi-Rose, but I’ll buy it and you can read it.

    I thought that Blood Red Road was a great book. When we got to the point where Lugh got kidnapped, I thought that Saba wouldn’t be able to find Lugh until, Mrs. Pinch brought Lugh down to Saba along with the Tonton. I wondered (and probably everyone) why was the heart stone burned against Saba’s skin when she got to Jack. We eventually found out that Saba loves Jack. When we were near the end of the book, I was surprised that Nero came back. I can’t wait to read the next 2 books. I think in the next book, we are going to follow Jacks adventure while Lugh, Saba and Emmi head west.

    This is one of the best novels that you have read to us. I can’t wait for the other two books in the trilogy to come out to the public. My opinion on this book may not be the same as someone else’s, but I give it a five star rating. I’m sure that the other books are going to be even better. For the next book, I predict that Saba won’t be Jack’s heart’s desire and he will find his true heart’s desire in the form of another woman. I believe that this will leave Saba in tears. She is a strong character and I don’t think that she cries all that much. I really enjoyed this book, and I am definitely going to read the next two.

    Hi Mr. Purdon I think that Blood Red Road is good because when Lugh got captured all of the action began, Also when Saba ran the gauntlet. I think that it got interesting when the heart stone kept getting hot when Saba was with jack we thought Saba liked jack then at the end we found that she did like jack because Saba kissed him on the lips.

    What I like about Blood Red Road was how Saba would do anything to save her brother even if it means risking her life. If I was Saba I would go to Mercy’s house right away witch Saba and Emi did. Actually I would make Mercy come with me and help me get Lugh but Saba didn’t choose to do that even though it would make Saba find Lugh faster.

    The part I didn’t like was when Ike died I thought that part was really sad because Ike helped Saba find Lugh and help him get free. I really liked Ike because he was funny and he was sort of sensitive and he didn’t have a really bad temper like Saba. This is why I hoped someone else died but Ike.

    The book Blood Red Road is a awesome book! The only thing I hated is that Ike died, that was a sad part. My favorite part is when Saba broke out of the cage. From my opinion the funniest part is when Saba was sleeping in the plane and then Emi came but Saba did not know that it was Emi so Saba shot her with the sling shot. This book to me was a great adventure.

    I think blood red road was epic when lugh gets kidnapped it’s saba’s turn to find her on her journey people run into her like jack when jack got closer to saba the heartstone got hotter and hotter and at the the end saba and jack the love of her life.They kissedthen hjasck had to go so that’s how it ends

    i think bloodred road was very sad!!!!! i feel so bad for ike he was so nice and funny! 🙂 😦 i wonder what the second and third book are gonna be like! it was a totall twilight ending.and i was amazed at what damolo did,he just dropped sabas wepons at her feet! im so happy they got luhg back. 🙂

      Mr. Purdon responded:

      Nadia, I agree with the Demalo comment. He obviously is going to be important in later novels. Moira Young has made him so mysterious that you want to know much more about him. Seriously, he had no reason to save Saba and get what he wanted (control of Freedom Fields), but he did! I wonder why?

    I think Blood Red Road is epic and funny because it happened so many times that Sabba got set back by her friends. So she had less chance to save her brother Lugh. And I knew at the end that Damolo was going to have something to do with it there was a big twist when he did interfere and that’s is why I like this book so much it is just such a good journey.

    Blood Red Road

    I think this book is great because when Saba meet Jack the heart stone got warmer and then hot and then normal, when they started talking Saba got in love with Jack and Jack fill in love with Saba. Saba is on a qwest to find lugh.

    Thomas I agree with you they will hopefully follow jack on his journey cause hes always been fearless just like ike but ike got killed 😦

    I think Blood Red Road is an epic, adventurous, drama filled awesome book. And I think I will try to get all my friends to read it to. I also think it’s sort of like a western and a dystopian novel. And the ending is also pretty good. And I think if you like dystopian or western novels you should read this book.

    to:Bryson i dont really hate the fact that ike died,but it was sad.Someone has to die you know. IF no one close to saba died it wouldent make the book that interesting.Do you agree?? and also to: Gemma, you are right i think saba may not be in jacks heart any more but then would saba still be in his???

    I think that Blood Red Road is a great book. I like stories that have love story and action. This book is just the right book for me. At the end it was a little bit sad because a character named Ike died. Also, it was sad because another character named Jack left
    Saba. I thought that Jack would never leave Saba. But at least Laugh, Saba, and, Amy will stay together . I hope the other two books for Blood Red Road are going to be published soon .also, I wish that Jack will come back to Saba. Finally I think that Blood Red Road is a great book and Saba is a great character.

    To be honest, I love Blood Red Road! But I think that what really makes it a great story is Saba. Saba is just so amazing. She was a brat, mean, and careless at first, but then she turned out to be, well, a beautiful person. Even though she has killed a lot of people, even a friend, she kept a promise when she made one. No matter how hard it was to keep, she did it. I really admire that about Saba. She might get on your nerves time to time, but no one can resist her! But there is more then just one character that helps her make the story the best it can be, Jack. Who doesn’t love Jack? He’s that type of guy who just gets to you even though you might think of him as a “player”, he just tickles your bones. He’s that one that will push you the extra mile! That’s what I believe makes this story better then a lot of others!

      Jessica, I think you hit the nail on the head with your comments. Saba makes this book. She went on a journey with us and changed considerably. I too, think she changed for the better, but is this going to make her weaker and more vulnerable in the next books????

    I think the book Blood Red Road is epic because it has impossible actions and they make your heart race faster because of excitment. Also, because of the characters they are all differrent and they have to help each other and know each other. The most exciting part is when she says that she wants to save her brother (risking her life). I would also do that. When its in the movie theater, the most scariest part would be the hell worms.

    Blood Red Road is an epic book becuase it has action, survival, and funny. My favorite character in blood red road is saba and jack. My faorite character is jack because he was singing after saba beat the earth worm and saba said “leave me alone” and jack tried to go to her but saba kept walking then jack sat on the ground and started to sing the same song over and over again, now her is my other favorite character that is saba i like saba because she can fight really good, she can be really funny, she keeps her word, and she will always help emmie and lugh.

    i thnk the book was epic because in the novel Blood Red Road when lugh got captured saba went through everyone just to find lugh but at the end saba and lugh went right back to a happy family but it took lugh a whil to wake up fully because of all the chole.When saba ,ike,jake,emi,ike,tomo were up against the “HELL WORMS” that was when i knew that someone would die but nobody dies till the end. Saba knew from the beging that she will find lugh she cared less about other problems her mainn focus was on finding lugh and jake took saba and emi on a really good adventure. If i was saba i would make sure that i had lots of back up with me so that i would be prepared if anyone wanted a fight so saba toook one of the free hawks just in case the ton ton were up to fighting at freedom fieldes.

    Since we started reading Blood Red Road I found it a great book, but during some things didn’t make sense to me Emmi and Saba left home and went to Merci’s house and after a while Saba told Emmi to stay at Merci’s. When Saba arrived at the those ships Emmi followed her but it doesn’t say how she tracked Saba, so it gets me thinking how possibly would Emmi follow Saba when there was sand covering her trails fast.

    Also, to my fellow students I noticed some of your faces when there were Saba kissing Jack. but I think Moira Young put parts like that to make I more interesting but when parts like that came up and you went yuk! I laughed so it was a epic story.

    In Blood Red Road I thought that the book whould end In a clif hanger but It felt like more of a happy twilight sean in the end haha. But, over all I loved ❤ the book It was so awsome and the part I liked the most was when saba and jack kissed for the first time (: It was so cute :). but the part was It was a awsome book and I think It was one of the best books you read all year and last year:P

    I think in the book Blood Red Rode is an epic and sweet book. The part I like the most is when Saba found Lugh. But the sad part was when there dad died and when Ike died too. Also I think this book is sweet to because when ever Saba went bye Jack the hart stone all ways when hot, and I think this book is sweet too because Saba really likes and Jack really likes Saba.

    Blood red road is really epic.But its sad because Ike dies,Aponya dies,and Pa dies.I feel bad for
    the main character Saba,because a lot of stuff is going on in her life. Like, she had to find her
    twin brother Lugh,(“Lugh” is how “Lou” is spelled in Blood red road)Saba also had to deal with
    4 of her closest family or friends, death.But its epic because there’s a lot of action and adventure
    in Blood red road. But there’s 2 reasons why I don’t like Blood red road. #1 There is always romantic parts at the times where there about to get into the action or about to die, & #2, There is a lot of dying. 🙂

    I think Blood Red Rode was a good book and so epic. I like the end of the book when he kisses her on the lips and she kiss him to.
    But at the end of the book was sad part was when Ike died that
    Was sad. When Saba found Lugh but he was knock out but
    They got him back. I think that part was the best part in the
    When Saba gave him the hart stone.

    i think Blood Red Road was a realy great book but it was sad when Ike 😦 died because Ike was one of my favourite charictars in the book, but my favourite charictar was Jack. I wonder what gonna happen when Jack sees Saba again. Also it was sad when Aponya dies. 😦
    That is all I have too say about Blood Red Road
    🙂
