A Torch Against the Night Excerpts and Giveaway


Last year I was swept away by An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. I found it to be such a strong, vivid and often disturbing fantasy tale that was dark yet had that glimmer of hope that kept me reading. I can’t wait to dive into the follow-up A Torch Against the Night. I do think I’ll do a bit of a reread of the first book since there was so many details and I don’t’ want to miss anything in this sequel.

If you’re a fan like me then I have a treat for you- two excerpts from A Torch Against the Night and a giveaway hosted by the lovely people at Penguin.

Have you read An Ember in the Ashes? If so I want you to leave me your review link or let me know what you thought in the comments. If not, I highly recommend it! You can check out my review here and look for me to give you my updated thoughts after I do a reread.

About A Torch Against the Night


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.
