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.

My Thoughts

So the title and cover reveal for Ember 3 was released this week and of course it was going to be my WoW pick. This series is one of my absolute favourites and it feels like I have been waiting foreverrrrr for this book. It you haven't read this then I strongly recommend you do!

  I. need. this. book. now!


Here are the covers for the series so far. I'm not sure if there is going to be a cover change for the UK covers, I really love the old ones but I do like the changes... also who doesn't want to see a glorious OTP on the cover? Yes please *Elias swoons*

What are you looking forward too?

  2. Though I love the new covers, this makes it the second time they've changed the covers. Meaning I'm going to have 3 copies of An Ember in the Ashes haha. But also--can we please talk about how HOT Elias is on these new covers??? And the silver mask Helene is wearing is creepy but amazing! Ahhh, this book cannot come out faster!
