Sabaa Tahir grew up in California’s Mojave Desert at her family’s 18-room motel. There, she spent her time devouring fantasy novels, raiding her brother’s comic book stash and playing guitar badly. She began writing An Ember in the Ashes while working nights as a newspaper editor. She likes thunderous indie rock, garish socks and all things nerd. Sabaa currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her family.

Holy Hinterland crows, that was good. Read this at night, with a cup of tea and the lights dimmed so you can be scared silly like I was. :D :D

“Life is made of so many moments that mean nothing. Then one day, a single moment comes along to define every second that comes after. Such moments are tests of courage, of strength.”
Sabaa Tahir, An Ember in the Ashes

“There are two kinds of guilt. The kind that's a burden and the kind that gives you purpose. Let your guilt be your fuel. Let it remind you of who you want to be. Draw a line in your mind. Never cross it again. You have a soul. It's damaged but it's there. Don't let them take it from you.”
Sabaa Tahir, An Ember in the Ashes

“Fear is only your enemy if you allow it to be.”

“Music is my home.”
Alison Croggon, The Naming

“Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires.”
William Shakespeare, Macbeth

“At Tara in this fateful hour,
I place all Heaven with its power,
And the sun with its brightness,
And the snow with its whiteness,
And the fire with all the strength it hath,
And the lightning with its rapid wrath,
And the winds with their swiftness along their path,
And the sea with its deepness,
And the rocks with their steepness,
And the earth with its starkness:
All these I place,
By God's almighty help and grace
Between myself and the powers of darkness!”
Madeleine L'Engle, A Swiftly Tilting Planet

“Fate, up against your will.

- The Killing Moon
Echo and the Bunnymen, Echo And The Bunnymen

“We live as we dream--alone....”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

Yomna Thanks for accepting my friend request!!!! I'm crazy excited for A torch against the night!!! You writing is absolutely stunning.


♛ Garima ♛ Thanks a lot for accepting my friend request, please have 'A Torch Against the Night' published as soon as possible, I've waited enough already :)


Kathleen (QueenKatieMae) This cannot be a standalone book!! I absolutely loved it and your characters are so compelling. I need to know what happens...sooooo...is this a standalone or a series?
