Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases. This week I am waiting on…
Title: A Reaper at the Gates
Author: Sabaa Tahir
Publication Date: June 12, 2018
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.
WHY I’M EXCITED
In my March wrap up, I talked about how much I loved An Ember in the Ashes and A Torch Against the Night. I’m really excited for the third book in the series and have already pre-ordered a UK copy, which is GORGEOUS!. Thankfully, I don’t have to wait as long as fans of the series who had to wait two years. BUT two months feels like a long time away! I can’t wait to see where the rest of the series goes and what Sabaa Tahir has in store for one of my favorite male characters, Elias Veturius! I hope it doesn’t break heart into a million pieces.
Are you excited for A Reaper at the Gates? What books(s) are you waiting on? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for reading!
