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.

Hey guys! So I'm seeing lots of turmoil in my feed but I thought I'd pop in. I'm not crazy about switching covers/etc in a series either, but before you go off on a huge tangent, go check out Sabaa's reasoning for the changes. My thoughts on the design/etc don't matter, and I happened to adore the old covers SO much, but this woman did a cool thing with her influence, and I'm so glad I know why! Link below :)
So all in all, you don't have to like the covers and you're totally entitled to your own opinions, but just be kind and respectful, please!

OKAY BUT WHY DO WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL 2018???
As if ONE year wasn't long enough, Sabaa goes and makes us wait TWO years for the next book. :((((((((
What are we supposed to do until then? :'(
whyyyyy, sabaa, whyyyyyyy???
you know how they tell you that good things come to those who wait? i never bought into this school of thought bc i'm pretty much veruca salt when it comes to books. but, holy hell, is A REAPER AT THE GATES worth it. i was immediately drawn back into this darkly dangerous world and all its amazing characters. each POV is distinct and painstakingly wrought. the action is intense, and the angst made my heart hurt for days afterward. it's smart, sexy, and gut-wrenching. exactly what you've come to expect from the brilliance of sabaa tahir.
all i'm saying is that i need more. now. in veruca salt singing voice: DON'T CARE HOW, I WANT IT NOWWWWWWW.
THIS COMES OUT THIS YEAR. Holy moly, time has passed rather quickly. But I'm still not happy about the cover style change. Hmph.
Meaningly, my torturous, never-ending wait. Because freaking 2018.
Me: Nothing can be worse than the Tower of Dawn cover
A Reaper at the Gates: *exists*
An Ember in the Ashes is one of my favorite series ever. I don't deserve this.
