Elias and Laia are running for their lives.
Following the events of the Fourth Trail, n army led by Masks hunts the two fugitives as they escape the city of Serra and journey cross the vast land of the Martial Empire.
Laia is determined to break into Kauf--the Empire's most secure and dangerous prison--and save her brother, whose knowledge of Serric steel is the key to the Scholars' future. And Elias is determined to stay by Laia's side, even if it means giving up his own chance at freedom.
But Elias and Laia will have to fight every step of the way if they are going to outsmart their enemies; the bloodthirsty Emperor Marcus, the merciless Commandant, the sadistic Warden of Kauf, and, most heartbreaking of all, Helene--Elias's former friend and the Empire's newest Blood Shirke.
Helene's mission is horrifying, unwanted, and clear: find the traitor Elias Veturius and the Scholar slave who helped him escape... and kill them both.
I was lucky enough to receive an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of A Torch Against the Night at BookCon. And of course I totally freaked out when I got it, because it is one of my most anticipated releases for this year. And I couldn't be more ecstatic, and trust me this book lived up to all the hype I gave myself. My first reaction to this book was; OH MY GOD, the middle; Oh no......WAIT..... WHAT!?!?!?, and the end; Okay.... but, what now? If you thought that the ending of An Ember in the Ashes was tortuous.... just wait, the ending of this one killed me! I have so many questions that need answers! Tahir better write another, because if not, I'm going to die. Tahir made this is a squeal to remember. With so many twists and turns that will keep readers on their toes, Tahir has flipped the tables. Just when I thought this series couldn't get any better, she has thrown another showstopper at me. I can't wait for you all to have this book in your hands, because then you can join me in anticipation to see what Tahir will do next. And trust me you will, because this book will leave readers with wanting more, and craving answers! So, until then, I'll be waiting.
