    “[An] action-packed, breathlessly paced story.” (Booklist, starred review)

    Set in a rich, high-fantasy world inspired by ancient Rome, Sabaa Tahir's An Ember in the Ashes told the story of Laia, a slave fighting for her family, and Elias, a young soldier fighting for his freedom.   

    Now, in A Torch Against the Night, Elias and Laia are running for their lives.

    After the events of the Fourth Trial, Martial soldiers hunt the two fugitives as they flee the city of Serra and undertake a perilous journey through the heart of the Empire. 

    Laia is determined to break into Kauf - the Empire’s most secure and dangerous prison - to save her brother, who is the key to the Scholars' survival. And Elias is determined to help Laia succeed, even if it means giving up his last chance at freedom.   

    But dark forces, human and otherworldly, work against Laia and Elias. The pair must fight every step of the way to outsmart their enemies: the bloodthirsty Emperor Marcus, the merciless Commandant, the sadistic Warden of Kauf, and, most heartbreaking of all, Helene - Elias’ former friend and the Empire’s newest Blood Shrike. Bound to Marcus' will, Helene faces a torturous mission of her own - one that might destroy her: find the traitor Elias Veturius and the Scholar slave who helped him escape...and kill them both.

    Goregous

    Such a great story. You feel every emotion as if it was your own. It is so unfair that it is over for now. It is desire, hatred, love and lost. Destroying, heartbreaking, loving, enraging, feeling, simply great.

    Listened to this in every free second I had!

    The best narrators I ever listened to! They made this story vivid as if I were watching a movie!
    And the story itself is written so real im it‘s emotions and toughts. Everytime you think you know how the story will continue you are suprised by the unexpected turns. Love it! I Love it also that the female characters are very strong, but never too feministic.
