This series is fantastic. Hours pass while I'm immersed in this world losing all track of time. This author has an amazing ability to put her characters in the worst situations ever and write the most amazing, hateful villains. The portrayal of war and genocide almost takes it out of the YA genre, but so well done. #highlyrecommend #mustread

4½⭐
This second book was brutal and deadly but fulfilling. One thing that‘s certain about these books is that they are definitely not boring; there is a lot to unpack. At the end of book one, things felt uncertain, at least, as far as what direction things were going. I feel like elements are progressing towards something. Also, what felt like a love square is becoming something less confusing for both us and the characters, I least I think it is?

Amazing secuel of An Ember in the Ashes! Filled with action, misteries and with surprising plot twists. But there is also a lot of violence for my taste, and until the last 100 pages de of the book I was a bit lost with everything that was going on. Still amazing book!

5/5 for the second in this fantasy series! This one was a wild ride! I loved every minute of it. There were so many twists and turns. Laia and Elias are wonderful characters. I‘m so worried about Helene. I will be continuing this series!

5/5 ⭐️ Even with this being the second time I've read this, the way Sabaa Tahir weaves her plot twists blows my mind!! 🤯 I haven't read the 3rd or 4th book yet but I really love this series!

This book was all and more than I could have ever wanted from a book two of a series! Nothing about it was ever boring. Every character has the growth they needed. I was utterly destroyed towards the end of the book but was saved with the ending. Absolutely fantastic.

An excellent sequel. The audio version is fantastic, especially with having the three points of view narrated by different narrators.

These are the books I'm hoping to get through this time around. I'm almost done the tagged book and the others aren't crazy big, plus I have #audiobooks for two of them and it's a long weekend so it should be a pretty achievable goal. Unless I change my mind. As I do 🤷‍♀️ #moodreader

Once again I really enjoyed the narration of the second book. Laia is single minded in her drive to save her brother, as her and Elias are being pursued, even at times to the detriment of others

The magic in the world starts to present itself a bit more in this book, which we saw glimpses of in book 1, but the story is definitely driven a lot by the characters development.

This was my second read through of book 2, which is a solid 4 star read.

Progress:
📖 I finished 2 books & started the tagged reread today, so I'm pretty on track.
🥗 With a family health issue, I basically ate what I could, when & where I could. I expect that to continue as life returns to normal. Instead, I will change my goal to an outdoor walk 5x per week. This will at least instill an easier health habit, and maybe get me out of the house & away from the stress for 20-30 minutes a day.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
A fantastic follow up to the first book, Tahir adds a third narrator to this one & really expands the reach of the story.
I‘ve read reviews that people think this is a tired or overdone storyline, but I don‘t think that‘s the case. There are, of course, elements we recognize from the genre, but this series so far has done things I wasn‘t expecting & delved deeper than anticipated. I am excited to continue into book 3!

1. When I was about 8 we adopted a scruffy little mixed breed terrier named Rascal. He was the sweetest thing and so good with me and my sister, who used to dress him up and push him in a doll stroller 😂
2. So thankful for my therapist. As someone who has been in therapy on and off all my life, I'm grateful for these professionals! ❤️

Clearly I did not post this one either - sorry, taking a look at my goodreads now. ************** There were parts of this was that was a bit long and not quite as enjoyable as the first. I‘m still a bit confused as to why Elias was chosen for his job. I am rather intrigued by the Nightbringer.

I love when a sequel makes you see a character in a new light. The change of perspective the continuation can give you and the rage you can feel at fictional characters.

I read the prequel to this last year and it was INCREDIBLE. #sabaatahir writing draws you in and slams you down into the desert. I love that she flips between multiple points of view so you see a fully rounded story. I was so excited that the library finally had this sequel and it is not disapointing so far #torchagainstthenight #books #currentlyreading #loveit #takemeonajourney

I BLEW through this series, y‘all. Of course second installments are never as good as the first, but this kept pace. I LOVE me some Elias— I didn‘t love how his story arc ended in this book. I‘m hoping he has better luck in the next book. Liai just keeps getting stronger and deeper. Oh, and of course there‘s a love triangle! 🔺😂 8/10

The second book didn't disappoint! This is usually where I lose interest in a series, where the magic seems to fade, but I thought Tahir raised the stakes, and adding the pov of Helene made it even more devourable. Again, the audiobook is fantastically narrated!

Got sucked into a series after flying through the first book a couple of days ago (#1 An Ember in the Ashes). YA Fantasy can be a nice escape when you need a genre change from a nonfiction audio and this storyline is working so far.

I loved every page of this book. It is fast paced, has a few surprises along the way and lovable characters. I liked how the story is told, alternating between the heroes of the story.
