    1. I realize I am not staring into his eyes I am staring into my future.I see it for a moment Pain Suffering Horror All that I love, all that matters to me, awash in blood.Oh my god I loved it.Last year, I read and enjoyed an advance copy of an unknown book from a debut author An Ember in the Ashes I sped through it, loved it, rated it five stars, and thought that was the end of that On to the next one Like most books I rate and review, I expected it to be forgotten in a sea of YA But suddenly, out [...]

    3. magnificentRCH simply burns, in all the best ways it s everything you ve come to love and expect from the brilliance of Sabaa Tahir, except BETTER twisty, turny awesomeness abounds on every single page and you will not want to keep turning them until the tale is overe wonderful thing about A TORCH AGAINST THE NIGHT is that though it never shies away from depicting cold brutality the nuances of emotion are just as deeply felt just as passionately rendered you will yell at your favorite characters [...]

    4. So long as you fight the darkness, you stand in the light A Torch Against the Night is the very glorious sequel I had expected from Sabaa Tahir But what distinguishes itself from its prequel is the otherworldliness of it The breath of Death on our characters necks The villain s that are evil incarnate The idea of a prescribed destiny The new abilities and powers The demons, the stories, the souls everything combines with a well built plot, an expanded universe and realistic, flawed portrayals of [...]

    5. congratulations semifinalist in best YA fantasy science fiction category 2016 Force won t work, Harper murmurs You need to outwit them You need secrets Secrets are a snake s way of doing business And snakes survive i didn t love this as much as An Ember in the Ashes, but it s a seriously fun book regardless the problem is that the first one was so strong, it s a tough act to follow this one is certainly not lacking in action or worldbuilding or interesting characters there s plenty for them to d [...]

    6. This review can also be found on my blog, Dana and the Books.An Ember in the Ashes was one of my favourite books from the past few years so it s only natural that I counted down the days to the sequel In fact, I found out my local book shop had it stocked a couple days before the UK release date, so I frantically ran over and recruited the bookseller to help me find it Poor guy must have thought I was insane I don t think I even brushed my hair I was so desperate to get my hands on it Well, that [...]

    7. This is Helene s book.Well not quite, but she plays such a grander role than she did in the first book In fact, she annoyed me to no end in the latter, but in this sequel we learn about her and are shown different facets of her personality.The fact that her family is in danger is not a positive thing, but somehow it made Helene look humane to my eyes She isn t the rigid, rule abider soldier I saw her as before being witness to her softer, vulnerable side any.There s much running around in this [...]

    11. That was absolutely brilliant But you are no swift burning spark You are a torch against the night if you dare to let yourself burn When I finished An Ember in the Ashes I had the hardest time conveying what an emotional rollercoaster that book was and now I m sitting here in the same position Every single character s story was amazing This book has a slightly different feel to it than the first one since it s spread out and there are threats It feels somehow darker, yet hopeful at the same t [...]

    12. To keep up with the times, and not fall into a dark chasm of old school fantasy, nineteenth century literature, Buddhist philosophy and postcolonial theory, I make sure I read one popular Y.A book a year I mean I ve got to keep my cool trendy hip image going right I wouldn t want you guys to think I m some kind of reclusive romantic poetry obsessed bookworm who sits around reading books all day then writes about them on a book review website Cool, I m glad we ve cleared that up So I did have fai [...]

    13. This review will be of a rant, don t say I didn t warn you.I m reviewing An Ember in the Ashes and a Torch Against the Night together in this review, mostly because I didn t have the energy to rant twice.Because I don t like using acronyms, and typing out the titles taking long, we will refer to them as book 1 and 2 In book 1, we dive into a world with so many undeveloped yet interesting ideas From the hype that surrounded this book, I was super excited to read it, and when it started off with [...]

    14. Picking up where An Ember in the Ashes left off, A Torch Against the Night proved to be every bit as suspenseful and action packed as the first book Laia and Elias find themselves fighting to survive, as they try and evade the cruelty of the Commandant and the new emperor There was never a dull moment.One thing that you should know going into this series is that the author isn t afraid to kill off characters There were several surprising deaths along the way Don t be surprised if some of your fa [...]

    15. Find me on Instagram Twitter You are a torch against the night if you dare to let yourself burn I m a little undecided on how I feel about A Torch Against the Night I really liked it but at the same time I wasn t blown away by it I guess to put it simply, it was good but nowhere near as good as An Ember in the Ashes Or maybe I was just expecting too much I m not too sure.I loved some parts and some of the things I wanted to happen DID happen but other parts left me a little bored and unsatisfied [...]

    16. This sequel is NEXT LEVEL Elias s journey had an extra dash of supernatural that I loved so much Laia becomes bolder with every chapter I had a Laia theory that was 10% right and Sabaa twisted my theory into something far greater And Helene s POV was such a welcome addition, and I d easily read an entire book of just her alone This is one of those rare novels where I m SO happy in everyone s POV that I m not impatiently dying to get back to someone s chapter everyone has their own cliffhangers a [...]

    17. OH MY GOD.Did I ever think Sabaa Tahir would let me down Because if any part of me did, swiftly punch it to non existence Thanks.I m literally on the floor crying yet my heart feels so full.An Ember in The Ashes lingered on suspense and brutality The stakes have been high since the beginning A Torch Against the Night is even brutal, heart racing and oh yeah, lots deaths and twists that really had me worried for my heart The pacing is different to that of AEITA because there s no trials of cou [...]

Well I wasn t planning on finishing this book tonight but here we are This is the only book in a while that has kept me reading past my bedtime because I just needed to FINISH I really enjoyed ember when I read it but I think the hype got to me a bit too much and I didn t LOVE it Not the case with this one I LOVE THIS BOOK I was also not 100% on board with it becoming a 4 book series at first I love duologies I want of them but after this book I so am I need There is so much to exPLORE I just [...]

    19. A Torch Against the Night is simply the superior YA Fantasy of the year Hands down, there s no competition.An Ember in the Ashes was merely a prelude to the sinister follow up The story remains about oppression, but unlike the first book this is where readers could vividly see the resistance at first hand The stakes are higher There is gore, and violence.My heart is very delighted with the intricate political prose, but there are truths in it as well that parallels our past and contemporary tim [...]

Fellow readers, please, for your own good, go read Kat s, Sarah s, and Nastassya s reviews I just did it, and I know I will be laughing for hours Besides, you know I always mention them, and I don t do it only because we discuss the book together it s because they know what it means to review a book and analyze it with humor and intellectual honesty I was almost cut out from the world for the past week and the only reason I wanted to leave the wonderful place I d gone on vacation to was to read [...]

Okay lets all agree on one thing just ignore my actual stars rating because I have no clue how to rate this book THIS WAS SO INTENSE Pretty sure I still have whiplash If you think you re gonna get a breather or a nice little break in this book from the craziness of book one, think again This book picks up literally moments after the first ends Laia and Elias are running for their lives and being chased Marcus is the Emperor, and Helene the blood shrike Lets not forget about Elias s lovely sweet [...]

    29. 3.5 starsWell Definitely gotta say I m disappointed in this Book one totally outshines its sequel, and now I m wary continuing on with the series Maybe I was in the mood to read YA in 2015, because book one was written amazingly and i loved the characters and setting This just seemed like a step down from that It wasn t as good as I remember book one being I was actually quite bored during this book and I ended up skim reading Helene s chapters and eventually skim reading Elias and Laia s chapt [...]
