Waiting on Wednesday #10: Raging Star by Moira Young

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme first initiated by Jill from Breaking the Spine. However, we've added our own twist to it! Not only will we feature books that will be published in the following months, but we will also feature books that are not available yet locally, and are still unavailable to us.

Title: Raging Star
Author: Moira Young
Publication Date: May 13 2014
Publishing House: Margaret K. McElderly
ISBN: 9781442430020


Saba is ready to seize her destiny and defeat DeMalo and the Tonton... until she meets him and he confounds all her expectations with his seductive vision of a healed earth, a New Eden. DeMalo wants Saba to join him, in life and work, to create and build a healthy, stable, sustainable world...for the chosen few. The few who can pay.

Jack's choice is clear: to fight DeMalo and try to stop New Eden. Still uncertain, her connection with DeMalo a secret, Saba commits herself to the fight. Joined by her brother, Lugh, anxious for the land in New Eden, Saba leads an inexperienced guerilla band against the powerfully charismatic DeMalo, in command of his settlers and the Tonton militia. What chance do they have? Saba must act. And be willing to pay the price.

Nicole: You guys, I cannot believe that this series is ending now. I mean yeah, obviously it was bound to end, but that doesn't mean that I'm not gonna be sad to see this go. No more Jack and Saba? Cue teary eyes. But anyway, for those of you who aren't familiar, Raging star is the last book in the Dustlands series, Blood Red Road being the first and Rebel Heart being the second. I have a review of Rebel Heart just in case. But seriously, if you haven't started on this series yet you totally should. Go! I'm just so excited to see what happens in this installment. 

What books are you guys looking forward to?


  1. I loved Blood Red Road and then was really unhappy with Rebel Heart. But, I am looking forward to seeing how Moria concludes her series! Great choice!

    1. I'm real excited to see how Raging Star's going to end. :)) Ohhh, I had no qualms about Rebel Heart. Loved it.

  2. I've never heard of these books and feel like I am missing out! I'm always on the lookout for new fiction for the library - I work in a secondary school. What age range do you think this series is aimed at?
