Beside me, Laia pants, her body dragging. She is slowing me down. You could leave her, an insidious voice whispers. You’d move faster on your own. I crush the voice. Elias
I have a feeling that Laia and Elias’s story will become a blockbuster hit in theaters! Having just finished A Torch Against the Night, the sequel to An Ember in the Ashes, I have no reservations when I say – Sabaa Tahir is a master wordsmith. If Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses series had a novel love child with George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series – An Ember would be born.
I wasn’t prepared for what went down here… Seriously, not prepared. You know how, when you’re reading, you will kind of map out how you see events unfolding? Well…don’t bother. You can not foresee the future (Even if Shakespeare himself doled out a surfeit of foreshadowing). I mean it – you won’t guess.
I read the last word, on the last page, shut the cover, and slowly tapped my fingernail against the jacket – my eyes slowly moved to the corner of my desk where Reaper at the Gates sat. This is where WILLPOWER comes in to play. I want to immediately begin the third book – but I have ten books queued before I can touch Reaper. Dying.
