Book Review: A Storm Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir

May death claim me first

After all this time A Sky Beyond the Storm has been released and it will be the first book I will be reviewing in 2021, after a hiatus of 9.5 months. Oops. But I am planning on doing a few a month.

Book Review: A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir


Title & Author: A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir
Genre: Fantasy, Romance
Release date: December 1 2020
Series: An Ember in the Ashes
Publisher: Razorbill


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.

I give A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir five out of five hearts because I loved it. It was a great conclusion to an epic series. I really liked where Sabaa took the characters.

Keris was finger licking good as an enemy. She is a great villain and we all could see where things were going, but couldn’t be mad about. She is awesome!

Laia really got into her own during A Sky Beyond the Storm, but all of them really did. You can really see where their arc will end and how far Laia, Helene and Elias have come.

This time I did not get confused with the jinn and the Nightbringer, which helped me enjoy everything a lot more. Sabaa did well with writing a second enemy into the story without undoing the things she has built up over the previous books. The novels in the series follow each other in a great way and I hope Sabaa write a new series soon so I can enjoy her great writing again.
