Thrilling and hard to put down, readers will absolutely devour Tahir's latest. --BuzzFeed

An Entertainment Weekly Summer Reads pick

The perfect summer read. --The Washington Post

The highly anticipated third book in #1 New York Times bestselling author Sabaa Tahir's EMBER QUARTET.

Beyond the Martial Empire and within it, the threat of war looms ever larger.

Helene Aquilla, the Blood Shrike, is desperate to protect her sister's life and the lives of everyone in the Empire. But she knows that danger lurks on all sides: Emperor Marcus, haunted by his past, grows increasingly unstable and violent, while Keris Veturia, the ruthless Commandant, capitalizes on the Emperor's volatility to grow her own power--regardless of the carnage she leaves in her path.

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 in the hunt to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would help 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 demands his complete surrender--even if that means abandoning the woman he loves.

   Love this!
This series is so hard to put down and each character is compelling and complex. I'm so excited to read the next move in this series!
Great plot! I really like the depth of the characters and the twists and turns ''. Can 't wait for the fourth book!
   Must keep reading
It has been a long time since a series kept me this interested.
   I understand the hype completely now
Now that I am caught up, it is going to be hard to wait until I can get to the finale. Eventually, I understand the hype, love, and enthusiasm for Tahir's world. It is funny because I listened to the first two on the audiobook, so when I saw the names of people I had no idea how to spell them. Tahir delivers shocks and heartbreaking moments continuously delivering a book about duty, the promises we have made and the consequences we have wrought. Make us cruel, expose edges and sharpening them. But is there a way to escape this? When we are only limited by our own will, what lines will we draw and obey? To let others die for our crimes, the empire, the revolution and freedom.
   Heartbreaking as it builds distant hope!
Here is my review for A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir, the third but not final book in An Ember in the Ashes series. I love how the book opens with the point of view of Nightbringer! The author gives us an insight into the kingdom's history and at present time the scholars are extinguished, but we see that in the past the scholars have done the same to the Jinn, the Nightbringer's people. Very interesting and so much like the harsh reality in which we live. Laia's fate and Elias'future hold mystery. Livia, as Blood Shrike, stands steadly by her sister Helene's side. Learning more about Keris and her past was fascinating, as was learning more about Laia's mother's story. Because of his kindness and his tremendous strength, Elias gives up everything to help others. Reaper at the gates hurts my heart, but builds up a distant hope for the amazing characters, 5 stars!
   It just kept getting bad
The first book I loved and couldn t wait for the second book. Im not sure why the book has deviated from Elias, Helena and Keris. They made the book an excellent read. See where Im going with this, I couldn t stand Laia and her storyline. I just skim through her chapters and couldn t wait to see what happened with Elias and Helena. I personally would have loved to read some chapters on Keris and Marcus. If there is a book four, I don 't think I will buy it especially at the $8-$10 price range. 4 stars are for the first two books that carry the last book.
I loved it very much, as I loved the first and second, if not more! Couldn 't put it down. Would recommend most DEFINITELY!
   Aching for more
I love this series and can not wait for the next book! The characters are intricate and the plot is riveting.
   Not what I expected, not what I wanted
All YA writers seem to be amping the gruesome'. This book did not deliver the emotional development and further buy-in of the previous two books.
   Good read
I gave out 5 stars because I couldn t put it down. Hoping to another book. Forgotten left end for it. I completed just under 2 weeks all the books.
