Welcome back to the blog tour for A Reaper At The Gates by Sabaa Tahir! The third book in the Ember Quartet is now on shelves and available for purchase wherever books are sold. But what are you supposed to read once you find yourself waiting for the next book once again?
Here are five fantastic books we recommend reading to cure your book hangover:
The Rebel of the Sands series by Alwyn Hamilton
One of the best fantasy series I’ve ever read, hands-down. Hamilton’s strong worldbuilding combined with fantastic characters will suck you in.
Six of Crows & Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
Leigh Bardugo is one of the masters of storytelling. The Six of Crows duology is packed with action and unique characters and you won’t want to put it down.
The Wrath and the Dawn duology by Renee Ahdieh
Featuring absolutely breathtaking storytelling, The Wrath and the Dawn duology features similarly beautiful writing and worldbuilding as the Ember quartet. You can’t go wrong with these two books.
The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
This retelling of Aladdin features captivating storytelling and an enthralling plot. And unlike the Ember quartet, The Forbidden Wish is a standalone so there’s no waiting before or after you read it!
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
While Caraval features a heavier emphasis on the magical elements of the story, Stephanie Garber has created a rich, unique world and tells a story that allows readers to be fully immersed. Just when you think you’ve got the story figured out, another layer of mystery and magic is revealed.
About A Reaper At The Gates:
Beyond the Empire and within it, the threat of war looms ever larger.
The Blood Shrike, Helene Aquilla, is assailed on all sides. Emperor Marcus, haunted by his past, grows increasingly unstable, while the Commandant capitalizes on his madness to bolster her own power. As Helene searches for a way to hold back the approaching darkness, her sister’s life and the lives of all those in the Empire hang in the balance.
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 while hunting for a way to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would aid 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 will stop at nothing to ensure Elias’s devotion–even at the cost of his humanity.
