Waiting on Wednesday #53: A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir August 10, 2016


Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine. It showcases upcoming releases we’re anticipating!

My pick of the week is:


A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes #2)

By: Sabaa Tahir

Coming: 30 August 2016

Publisher: Razorbill


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.

Why I’m excited:

I loved An Ember in the Ashes. It was one of my favourite reads of last year. I had the chance to read the ARC of A Torch Against the Night thanks to Mary. I’m so excited to see more of Laia, Elias, and Helene.

Why I need you to be excited:

WE succeeded in calling for a sequel! Let’s enjoy it!
