Emberlings, are you dying for any hints about Sabaa Tahir’s A Torch Against the Night? You’re in luck! This week (through June 15th) is #HeleneWeek. While she was a main player in An Ember in the Ashes as a Mask and Elias’s best friend, Torch is the first time she will have her own point of view.
To hold you over until the excerpt release, you can watch Sabaa read the first chapter of An Ember in the Ashes and give us a first glimpse at Helene in A Torch Against the Night:
And to further celebrate #HeleneWeek, we’re sharing some of our favorite quotes from Helene in An Ember in the Ashes:
“Elias, stop curling your eyelashes and get out here. We’re late.” – Helene (pg 44)
Helene is a strong, incredibly powerful Mask and sometimes she seems more like a robot for the Empire than a human. Her friendship with Elias and the little moments like this one show her human side.
“‘They always underestimate me,’ she said afterward, sounding puzzled.” (pg 84)
Ready to see more from Helene?
Save the Date: The first excerpt from Helene’s POV will be released on Wednesday, June 15th at 12 PM EST on Bustle.com!
