Waiting on Wednesday: A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes #2) by Sabaa Tahir

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  I've picked another sequel this week. This time I've been waiting for longer than this seems, but I was waiting for the final cover reveal to post a WOW.  I was lucky enough to get an ARC for the first one, and I wish I could get an ARC of this sequel to match.  If they are out there, it will probably be on my high needs list for books for trade soon.  Without further ado, here is the blurb from Goodreads:

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.






There's not a lot to that description, but I must know what happens next!  You can read my review of the original, An Ember in the Ashes, HERE.  

So tell me, what book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

    1. I feel like it matches in a way. It's another picture with the people really small on it, only not as small as the original cover I guess. I can't wait to find out where this story will go next! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Oh, I don't have an ARC yet. I'm just hoping for one! I am okay with it being a little later, just because it's not like I have that much time to fit it in at the moment. Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Ohh great pick I see a lot of readers are very excited for this book too come out. I haven't read the first book yet but it has been on my radar for a long time know. I will most definitely check out this series when A Torch Against the Night comes out so I can binge read the whole duology together. Here is my WOW pick for this week.
