As you know I am a huge fan of Sabaa Tahir and the Ember series in general! I haven’t read A Reaper at the Gates yet but I can give you reasons why you don’t want to miss this series!
- Elias- Yes, I said it. This character is one of my all time favorites! He is so conflicted and bold I love him. Tahir has created such an incredible character with so much depth and feeling.
- The strong women! The women in this book are strong as hell! They are tough as nails especially Helene. Her story has developed so much over An Ember in the Ashes and A Torch Against the Night.
- The Feels- Sabaa Tahir isn’t afraid to make her readers suffer. Yes, this can be painful but it also is one element of a great story. You want to feel emotions for the characters and story and you so do with these books.
- The Covers- aren’t they gorgeous? I love the old ones (and UK versions) so it gives you a lot to collect. You can literally have a Sabaa Tahir shelf. I love that!
- Each book improves upon the last. Ok, so I haven’t read the latest book yet but I just KNOW it will be an even stronger book than the prior two.
There you have it folks! Have you read any of these yet?
