Hey guys!

So here’s what I’m waiting on this week!

Publication Date: August 30th, 2016


A Torch Against the NightA Torch Against the Night takes readers into the heart of the Empire as Laia and Elias fight their way north to liberate Laia’s brother from the horrors of Kauf Prison. Hunted by Empire soldiers, manipulated by the Commandant, and haunted by their pasts, Laia and Elias must outfox their enemies and confront the treacherousness of their own hearts.

In the city of Serra, Helene Aquilla finds herself bound to the will of the Empire’s twisted new leader, Marcus. When her loyalty is questioned, Helene finds herself taking on a mission to prove herself—a mission that might destroy her, instead.


Why I’m Waiting


An Ember in the Ashes was an explosive hit last year. So much so that it warranted a sequel to be written! For a book that was intended to be a stand alone, to then get a sequel is huge!

What has you guys waiting this week? Let me know down below!

Until next time,

Sig New

  1. Jesse! How are you!? Anyway, great pick. I picked this one for my W.o.W last week! I loved Ember. I didn’t know that it was meant to be a standalone? The ending felt like it would have a sequel haha. At least we don’t have to wait too long. August is right around the corner!
