THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING SEQUEL TO AN EMBER IN THE ASHES A USA TODAY BESTSELLER A WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER “Spectacular.”—Entertainment Weekly “Fresh and exciting...Tahir has shown a remarkable talent for penning complex villains.”—A.V. Club "Even higher stakes than its predecessor… thrilling." —Publishers Weekly, starred review “[An] action-packed, breathlessly paced story.” —Booklist, starred review Set in a rich, high-fantasy world inspired by ancient Rome, Sabaa Tahir's AN EMBER IN THE ASHES told the story of Laia, a slave fighting for her family, and Elias, a young soldier fighting for his freedom. Now, in A TORCH AGAINST THE NIGHT, 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.

ΣΤΗΝ ΠΑΓΩΜΕΝΗ ΛΕΥΚΟΤΗΤΑ ΤΟΥ ΒΕΡΜΟΝΤ… Ο Φρανκ Ραθ νόμιζε πως είχε ξεμπερδέψει με τις δολοφονίες όταν παρέδωσε το σήμα του αστυνομικού για να γίνει ιδιωτικός ντετέκτιβ και να μεγαλώσει την κόρη του ως ο μοναδικός της κηδεμόνας. Όμως η αστυνομία στην απομακρυσμένη ορεινή κοινότητα που ζει βρίσκει ένα εγκαταλελειμμένο αυτοκίνητο παρατημένο στον δρόμο και διαπιστώνει πως ανήκει σε μια πανέμορφη έφηβη που έχει εξαφανιστεί χωρίς κανένα ίχνος. Του ζητείται λοιπόν να αναλάβει την έρευνα… ΤΟ ΚΑΚΟ ΚΑΡΑΔΟΚΕΙ… Αυτή είναι μόνο η αρχή καθώς οι εξαφανίσεις νεαρών γυναικών διαδέχονται η μία την άλλη και ο Ραθ αναγκάζεται να αντιμετωπίσει τόσο τις συνέπειες του βίαιου και επώδυνου παρελθόντος του όσο και τις σκοτεινότερες εκδηλώσεις της ανθρώπινης ψυχής. ΚΑΙ ΚΑΝΕΙΣ ΔΕΝ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΑΣΦΑΛΗΣ.

in 1993 an historian wrote: ..". The lynching was especially atrocious: Two young black men were seized, dragged into the woods, and there chained to trees and tortured to death with blowtorches while a howling crowd of whites cursed and taunted them. Photographs were made of the dead bodies...." (K.S. Davis) This historical novel - ground-breaking in its emotional and graphic intensity - portrays the impact of that atrocity (1937) on two empathetic boys who didn't taunt, but secretly snapped pictures of the living, screaming victims (ironically, one with FDR's surname) - and desperately tried to stop it! Two against 500 (some came by school bus). Failing, they fled in despair and determination - with their Brownie Eagle Eye, embarking on a compelling mission! They had no choice - they'd been 'Out There.' Enraged, then galvanized, by the failures and heart-breaks of Book I, 'Einstein' Brian and 'Maestro' Marcus become avenging angels, sworn to strike 'Preacher-Creature Cecil' and his 'henchmen from hell' with the swords of retribution, self-defense, and 'un-Confederate' justice. Kids no more, they begin to act like God because 'Somebody has to...!' With images of brutality sealed in camera, conscience, and nightmares, they write to Eleanor and FDR, and accept her invitation to dinner at the White House. Irrevocably sworn to the most profound 'what-if' of the Twentieth Century, the boys pledge themselves to a daunting 'rendezvous with destiny' - theirs and humanity's. And a Time Capsule ticket to 6939 (CE) and beyond from Albert Einstein....

But her mother died when she was young, leaving Bera alone with her gift, unable to control her feckless twin spirit or understand her visions of the future. When this inability leads to the death of her childhood friend at the hands of a rival clan, Bera vows revenge. And learning that her father has sold her into marriage with the murderous enemy’s chieftain, she is presented with an opportunity even sooner than she had hoped... As her powers grow stronger, her visions of looming disaster become more and more ominous until she is faced with the ultimate choice: will she exact vengeance? Or can she lead her people to safety before it’s too late?
