If you know me at all you know how much I have been looking forward to A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy at BEA and I have decided I need to do a re-read of An Ember in the Ashes just so I can get back into the world and characters that Tahir has created. Have you added this to your to read shelf in Goodreads? If not…go now, I will wait!
A Torch Against the Night takes readers into the heart of the Empire as Laia and Elias fight their way north to liberate Laia’s brother from the horrors of Kauf Prison. Hunted by Empire soldiers, manipulated by the Commandant, and haunted by their pasts, Laia and Elias must outfox their enemies and confront the treacherousness of their own hearts.
In the city of Serra, Helene Aquilla finds herself bound to the will of the Empire’s twisted new leader, Marcus. When her loyalty is questioned, Helene finds herself taking on a mission to prove herself—a mission that might destroy her, instead.
We were also lucky enough to be asked to help prepare all of you for the release of book two in August! If you want to check out my review of An Ember in the Ashes, you can find that here.
