Waiting on Wednesday| A Torch Against the Night

Waiting On Wednesday is a book meme set up Breaking the Spine where all those who participate share weekly those book releases we are dying to get our hand on as soon as they are released.

This week's WoW post is:

A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes #1)
Sabaa Tahir

Out: 8th September, 2016


Elias and Laia are running for their lives.
After the events of the Fourth Trial, Martial soldiers hunt the two fugitives as they flee the city of Serra and undertake a perilous journey through the heart of the Empire.

Laia is determined to break into Kauf - the Empire's most secure and dangerous prison - to save her brother, who is the key to the Scholars' survival. And Elias is determined to help Laia succeed, even if it means giving up his last chance at freedom.

But dark forces, human and otherworldly, work against Laia and Elias. The pair must fight every step of the way to outsmart their enemies: the bloodthirsty Emperor Marcus, the merciless Commandant, the sadistic Warden of Kauf, and, most heartbreaking of all, Helene - Elias's former friend and the Empire's newest Blood Shrike.

Bound to Marcus's will, Helene faces a torturous mission of her own - one that might destroy her: find the traitor Elias Veturius and the Scholar slave who helped him escape... and kill them both.


 I have just finished An Ember in the Ashes (review too come) and although I enjoyed it, I didn't love it like everyone did. That being said I am excited to welcome the sequel this coming September on my ever growing shelf.

HarperVoyagerUK honoured me with an arc of this highly anticipated sequel so a review will be coming up soon. Once I've read it.
