A REAPER AT THE GATES
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.
WHY I NEED THIS BOOK
YOU GUYS. WE ARE FINALLY GETTING BOOK 3 AND I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER!!!! I loved An Ember in the Ashes and A Torch Against the Night so I can’t wait to see where Sabaa takes the story, especially after that ending. I also need more of Elias and Laia in my life so A Reaper at the Gates is a must!
