Reviews A Reaper at the Gates (An Ember in the Ashes, #3)

  • Emily May
    “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 again, for the third book in a row, she keeps the drama and bloodshed coming until the very end.The ONLY reason I rated this book slightly lower than An Ember in the Ashe...

    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 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 ma...

    Love cannot live here. When one of your favorite authors in the world has a new book coming out, it generally becomes your whole world. You have laser focus. Books lose that quality that always seems to drag you in. You obsess and rant and annoy so many people, yet you just could care less-until the day comes and you finally have it in your hands and you can’t devour it quick enough. This is that book. I just so happened to be one of those luc...

    "In this fiery hellscape of a world, this mess of blood and madness, justice exists only for those who take it. I'll be damned if I'm not one of them."1) An ember in the ashes ★★★★2) A torch against the night ★★★★★4.5First things first: nothing will ever be as badass as Helene covered in blood fighting with her war hammerAnyway, A reaper at the gates was fantastic. Everything came full circle (even if there's still one book left...

    Spoiler Free Review :)”Pain is a choice. Succumb to it and fail. Or defy it and Triumph.”Words cannot express how blissfully happy I am with this. I mean for me it was everything that I could of wanted. I was wondering where the story would go after A Torch Against the Night We got updates in what had happened throughout the time on the travels and nothing was left un-said. This time around there’s so much foreboding and it’s setting up t...

    Do you ever read a book and go I wonder how would I feel if I read this in a different time or in a different format?I do that with a lot of my books, especially the ones I love. But for this one, I have no doubt I would've loved it no matter what, I was just hooked from the first chapter till the last one.ANDIFRICKENLOVEELIAS

    this book was brutal, breathtaking and incredibly heart wrenching. I'm gonna need some time to collect my thoughts and let this book sink in.
