Left Bank Books and Archon present an SF STL event with bestselling author Sabaa Tahir, who will sign and discuss the third book in the Ember Quartet, A Reaper at the Gates, with Setsu Uzumé!
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. Far to the east, Laia of Serra knows the fate of the world lies in stopping the Nightbringer. But in the hunt to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would help her. 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.
“Tahir proves to be a master of suspense and a canny practitioner of the cliffhanger, riveting readers’ attention throughout….[An] action-packed, breathlessly paced story.” —Booklist, starred review
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of any of the books in the Ember Quartet series from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. Pre-order your copy here!
