Can't Wait for . . . A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hoste at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you're continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

I have been waiting, maybe a bit impatiently, for the fourth and final book in the Ember in the Ashes trilogy by Sabaa Tahir and we finally have a title, a cover, a release date and pre-orders open.  All which was announced this last Monday (March 2nd) and I don't think I have ever pre-ordered a book as fast as this one!

A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir
Release Date: December 1, 2020


Synopsis: "Prepare for the jaw-dropping finale of Sabaa Tahir's beloved New York Times bestselling An Ember in the Ashes fantasy series, and discover: Who will survive the storm?

Picking up just a few months after A Reaper at the Gates left off...

The long-imprisoned jinn are on the attack, wreaking bloody havoc in villages and cities alike. But for the Nightbringer, vengeance on his human foes is just the beginning.

At his side, Commandant Keris Veturia declares herself Empress, and calls for the heads of any and all who defy her rule. At the top of the list? The Blood Shrike and her remaining family.

Laia of Serra, now allied with the Blood Shrike, struggles to recover from the loss of the two people most important to her. Determined to stop the approaching apocalypse, she throws herself into the destruction of the Nightbringer. In the process, she awakens an ancient power that could lead her to victory--or to an unimaginable doom.

And deep in the Waiting Place, the Soul Catcher seeks only to forget the life--and love--he left behind. Yet doing so means ignoring the trail of murder left by the Nightbringer and his jinn. To uphold his oath and protect the human world from the supernatural, the Soul Catcher must look beyond the borders of his own land. He must take on a mission that could save--or destroy--all that he knows."

When is the earliest you have pre-ordered a book? Do you pre-order as soon as a book is announced and available for pre-order or do you wait until closer to the publishing date? Or do you wait until release day or after release day?


  1. This sounds really good. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to start the series.

    My CWW

    1. I hope you find the time to read them, it was such a great series! I binge all the books every time a new one comes out.

    2. I think that Laia's father was a Jinn child who escaped the slaughter brought by the Scholars, and then later loved Laia's mother. So, Laia is half Jinn, that's why the cave efrit and the Nightbringing were mystified by her.

    3. Oooh that is an interesting theory. I am looking forward to reading this final book!

  2. I really need to start this series! For favorite, auto-buy authors I pre-order as soon as the book is available. :)
