Tuesday, August 30, 2016, 7:00 p.m.
The wait is over! We're celebrating the launch of A Torch Against the Night, Sabaa Tahir's spectacular sequel to An Ember in the Ashes. Booklist, in a starred review, called it , [An] action-packed, breathlessly paced story.” and MTV.com described it as “A setting inspired by ancient Rome; a fierce battle for freedom in the face of tyranny; and a villain who makes Cersei Lannister and Dolores Umbridge look like a pair of pathetic amateurs...An Ember in the Ashes is at the top of our must-read list for 2015.”
Elias and Laia are running for their lives. Following the events of the Fourth Trial, an army led by Masks hunts the two fugitives as they escape the city of Serra and journey across the vast lands of the Martial Empire. But they will have to fight every step of the way if they’re going to outsmart their enemies and, most heartbreaking of all, Helene—Elias’s former friend and the Empire’s newest Blood Shrike. 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.
Sabaa will be in conversation with Stephanie Garber, whose much anticipated debut novel Caraval, a spellbinding tale of sisterhood, love and betrayal. will be released in January 2017.
