Sabaa Tahir Inks 2-Book Deal With Razorbill

By Maryann Yin 

Sabaa Tahir (GalleyCat)Sabaa Tahir has signed a deal with the Penguin Young Readers imprint, Razorbill. She plans to write a third and fourth installment for her An Ember in the Ashes series.

Here’s more from the press release: “In books three and four, war looms ever closer, the Scholar revolution burns brighter, and we follow Laia, Elias, and Helene as they battle the dark forces arrayed against them—from the vengeance-obsessed Nightbringer to the increasingly cunning Commandant. Even as they fight for their lives and their people, the three will grapple with the burden of shameful family legacies—and will learn first-hand the perils of falling in love under the shadow of the Martial Empire.”

The first book, Tahir’s debut young adult novel, came out back in April 2015. The sequel, entitled A Torch in the Night, is due out for release on Aug. 30. Book three is scheduled for publication in 2018. At this point in time, the publisher has not announced the release date for book four. Click here to watch the book trailer for the first title from this series.
