Here’s more from the release: “Written in a poetically minimal writing style and already optioned by Ridley Scott’s production company, Scott Free, Blood Red Road is the epic journey of Saba, a girl from the wastelands known as Silverlake.  After her twin brother, Lugh, is abducted by four cloaked horsemen, Saba is forced to leave Silverlake to rescue him.  What she finds is a lawless, ugly reality where the Wrecker civilization has long been destroyed.”

Publisher Justin Chanda and associate editor Gretchen Hirsch negotiated the deal with literary agent Gillie Russell from Aitken Alexander Associates. The deal includes audio rights.
