“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
This week I chose the sequel to one of my favorite books of last year: An Ember in the Ashes. This was a super epic, action-packed and brutal fantasy with serious Roman Empire vibes. It gripped me from the very first page, which is very difficult for books to do. But this one did and I loved every minute of it. So naturally book two is one of my most highly anticipated reads this year! I have high expectations for it to be just as epic as its predecessor!
My pick for this week: A Torch Against The Night by Sabaa Tahir
Expected publication: August 30th, 2016
What it’s about:
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.
Ooo, I have this on my TBR too! I was disappointed with the first book so I am hoping that it picks up in this one!
