    ?There are worse things than death,? I say. ?Shall we learn about them together?? 4 1/2 stars. When it comes to heart-racing action scenes, I cannot think of another YA author who does it better than Sabaa Tahir. She plunges you into the chaos almost immediately and once aga...

    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 ...

    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??? (aside: mwahahahahahaha) 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 imm...

    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. ...

    I hope Helene murders all the hateful peasants, rules the world and finds someone worthy of her greatness. ...

    Me: Nothing can be worse than the Tower of Dawn cover A Reaper at the Gates: *exists* #WhatTheFuck An Ember in the Ashes is one of my favorite series ever. I don't deserve this. ...

    Well, it seems like I?m in the major minority here. Three books in and I?m still not attached to the characters. If any of them had died in this book, I would?ve shrugged it off. Am I to blame? I don?t think so, since there barely was any backstory or development given to t...

    It?s amazing how we willingly pay to be traumatized, but honestly I?d do it all over again if I could. I have to say, there is no one in the writing game quite like Sabaa Tahir when it comes to opening up EVERY bookwith heart-pounding intensity. With that being said I was alrea...

    I went into this knowing most major plot points, but that still didn't make it any less intense or emotional. Sabaa's writing is incredible as usual ? I think this might be the strongest book yet! Obviously anything I say about the third book's story will be a slight spoiler for p...

    The immediacy of Tahir's writing remains spot-on, but the beautiful prose found in An Ember in the Ashes is absent in the third installment of the series. Too much of A Reaper at the Gates reads like filler, and the narrative lacks compelling focus with characters seemingly running in ...

    5 Sweet bleeding skies ?'s ?The sword point is my priest. The dance of death is my prayer. The killing blow is my release.? ?Hope is stronger than fear. It is stronger than hate.? Holly Mother!!! I don't even know what to say right now! I am completely speechless....

    ?Curse this world for what it does to the mothers, for what it does to the daughters. Curse it for making us strong through loss and pain, our hearts torn from our chests again and again. Curse it for forcing us to endure.? Look, I'm gonna do something a bit weird here and sta...

    this book is an inch-and-a-half thick and i was bored and shocked by my boredom until maybe the last quarter-inch. i?d been looking forward to reading this tremendously, and when i finally carved out the space to get to it, i dove in like a fox in the snow but my elation w...

    Edit: Ok, so I am mad that it wont match my other hardback covers. If you're buying the books with these covers, the older editions also got revamped, and together they look alright I guess...but my bookshelf feng shui is going to be thrown off. I dunno, I was just such a fan of the o...

    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 ...
