Mini Review: A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir

Released on June 12, 2018, A Reaper at the Gates is the third installment in Sabaa Tahir’s New York Times Bestselling Ember Quartet. Described as “thrilling and hard to put down”, A Reaper at the Gates promises to ensnare readers in the highest-stakes book in the quartet yet.

Beyond the Martial Empire and within it, the threat of war looms ever larger. Helene Aquilla, the Blood Shrike, is desperate to protect her sister’s life and the lives of everyone in the Empire. But she knows that danger lurks on all sides: Emperor Marcus, haunted by his past, grows increasingly unstable and violent, while Keris Veturia, the ruthless Commandant, capitalizes on the Emperor’s volatility to grow her own power–regardless of the carnage she leaves in her path. 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 in the hunt to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would help 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 demands his complete surrender–even if that means abandoning the woman he loves.

August 2016 TBR

Shockingly, I actually read almost everything on my July Reading List, despite working full-time and being enrolled in a couple courses! Despite this, I’ll be keeping my August TBR short, as I will be going to Europe (eek!) for half the month, and likely won’t have a ton of time to read while adventuring!

Court of Fives

The books at the top of my To Be Read list this month are: 

  1. Ink and Bone: The Great Library by Rachel Caine
  2. Paper and Fire: The Great Library by Rachel Caine
  3. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
  4. Court of Fives by Kate Elliot
  5. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rolwing
  6. The Falconer by Elizabeth May

And let’s not forget that The Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir will finally be released (in Canada) on August 30th! I doubt I’ll be able to finish it in one day though, so I suppose I’ll save that one (officially) for my September TBR!

If you’re looking for more reading inspiration, please check out my other recent Book Lists, which all feature both new releases and some of my all-time (although maybe not as recent) favourite reads!

Happy Reading Bookworms!
