A Torch Against the Night - Sabaa Tahir 4.25/5 stars

This wasn't quite as good as the first book, but it was still really enjoyable and interesting. The world building is great and I'd like to see what happens next in this story. I do regret reading this series now, the wait for the next book and the one after that is absolutely brutal.... 2018 and 2019. That's 2 and 3 years from now.. I hope I'll still want to read it when that time comes.

What I like most about this series?
Everytime they have the choice to do something totally horrible.. and you think "Well... that'll never happen. They'll never do that". But then they do!


This book (and the one before) has caused me to react like this quite often. And I love this series because of it. There aren't that many series that are willing to go there and make the hard decisions.

If you like this kind of story and setting. You should really give this series a try. Well written, brutal, interesting and good world building.
