A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir
"Wow, this book is truly outstanding in every way. I read "An Ember in the Ashes" and I thought it was great, but "A Torch Against the Night" is even better.

Torch is a non-stop, riveting, roller-coaster. Every chapter has unexpected and clever plot..." Read more of this review »
