An Ember in the Ashes is one of my favorite YA fantasy debuts; Sabaa Tahir’s world was mesmerizing yet brutal, and it was so easy to lose myself in the bloody story of an Empire inspired by Greek and Roman culture. Sadly, in A Torch Against the Night I didn’t manage to fully grasp that flare of magic I was confident I’d find.

I didn't intend to write this review.
I was lucky enough to get an ARC, but after I read Society of Wishes back in January I couldn't find the will to write something about it, because I realized that as soon as I finished the last page, I wasn't overwhelmed with emotions like all the other times I finished a book written by Elise Kova. Instead, I felt nothing, and it was devastating because no words can express how much I loved Elise's Air Awakens. Society of Wishes was by no means a bad book. It was simply average, and saying that about Elise breaks my heart.
