Goodreads Book Description

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’s former friend and the Empire’s newest Blood Shrike.

Bound to Marcus’s 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.


Why I’m Excited

I’m 28 years old and I am openly admitting that when this book lands on my doorstep on August 30th, I may pee my pants with excitement. I’m probably going to hug the delivery person when I see them appear with this book, so I hope that they’re ready for it. I have been anxiously awaiting this since I finished reading An Ember in the Ashes over a year ago, and it has not been easy. The struggle has been really real, y’all.

Want It Now

But somehow, I survived, and it’s finally almost time, and I cannot FREAKING contain my excitement! Literally me…

Freaking Out

An Ember in the Ashes was utter perfection and I expect the same from this sequel. The only thing that made this upcoming release even better is the news that dropped last week that there will be two more books in this series!

So Many Feelings

It’s so close. It’s finally happening. August 30th, an official holiday in my book! Less than one week and counting!


So Tell Me

Are you as excited for this release as I am?

    I haven’t finished reading An Ember of the Ashes. I HAD been enjoying it but life got in the way and now I can’t get myself back into it even if I have time 😦 Will definitely be reading it before the release of the second book though.
