A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes, #2)  by Sabaa Tahir

This book really does stand out as a torch against other books. It has a lot of frustrating decisions, but there is always something else happening that is not as frustrating. As a whole, it did not exactly pull me in but it was always busy and action filled. As Elias keeps his promise to Laia, and they work their way towards Kauf, where Laia’s brother is being held they both encounter new experiences and discover new emotions and feelings . Along the way you follow not only where Elias is heading but also what he left behind to keep his promise. Which really adds to the depth of everything that was happening and the consequences of it all. The story seemed a bit fragmented bringing different aspects and twists that did not really fit with the style of the rest of the book, but I am hoping it will make more sense in the next book. It also had some frustrating romance and regrettable moments. One thing that I did really like was the ending, as it was not the typical happy ending yet it was at the same time. I hope that does not say too much, but just know that the ending will throw one at you. Even though this book was a bit rough, I am hoping that it is just the second book curse back at it again and I am ready to read the next one to see what is in store for Laia and Elias.
