A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes, #2) 22, May

Rating: 3/5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

I’m deeply, truly underwhelmed. 

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.

Hands down, this book was pure brilliance. Sabaa Tahir kept me hooked onto every line, every word and I just couldn't find it in myself to put down the book, even for a minute.
