A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes, #2) by Sabaa Tahir

“Don’t lock yourself away from those who care about you because you think you’ll hurt them or — they’ll hurt you. What point is there in being human if you don’t let yourself feel anything?”

-page 294

So I am just loving this book so far. There are so many twists and turns, and it’s been non-stop action since page 1. Not bad so far.. for a sequel!

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.

      1. Good to know! I’ve heard good things about both books so hopefully I end up enjoying them whenever I finally get around to them 😛

  2. I haven’t finished either book yet, but I did read a little of An Ember in the Ashes and it’s quite good! I will finish it one of these days, especially if the sequel has such good lines in it. That choice you made is true, even if it’s hard to remember sometimes.
