Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir
It will be released on April 10, 2018, by Razorbill. This is the third novel in An Ember in the Ashes series.
I am so freaking excited for the book. I still need to read first two books but still… I am so excited! A few years ago, when Sabaa released her first book (and it was her debut novel), An Ember in the Ashes, people loved it and I need to join the bandwagon. This is the third novel in what would be a series of four novels. An Ember in the Ashes and A Torch Against the Night is the first two.
I love the cover! Sabaa is one of my heroes. She pushed for cover changes because she wants teenagers to know that they are worth it and they can be proud of themselves. First two books will have new paperbacks coming out, I believe on the 29th of August. I can’t wait to see it in person! I love the colors against the white background and the typography! I love how they wove the words with a sword or two!
Beyond the Empire and within it, the threat of war looms ever larger.
The Blood Shrike, Helene Aquilla, is assailed on all sides. Emperor Marcus, haunted by his past, grows increasingly unstable, while the Commandant capitalizes on his madness to bolster her own power. As Helene searches for a way to hold back the approaching darkness, her sister’s life and the lives of all those in the Empire hang in the balance.
Far to the east, Laia of Serra knows the fate of the world lies not in the machinations of the Martial court, but in stopping the Nightbringer. But while hunting for a way to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would aid her, and is drawn into a battle she never thought she’d have to fight.
And in the land between the living and the dead, Elias Veturius has given up his freedom to serve as Soul Catcher. But in doing so, he has vowed himself to an ancient power that will stop at nothing to ensure Elias’s devotion — even at the cost of his humanity.
