12 People Who Are Freaking Out About the First Chapter of A REAPER AT THE GATES

If you’re anything like us, you’ve been obsessively counting down the days to June 12th, the release date of Sabaa Tahir’s A Reaper at the GatesWe’ve been holding our breath since A Torch Against the Night, waiting to see where the story will leave Laia, Elias, and Helene — and what will become of the Martial Empire. Well, Sabaa decided to give us a collective heart attack Wednesday when she dropped an excerpt from the hotly-anticipated third installment of the Ember in the Ashes series. The epic teaser continued the saga with same cast of characters we’ve grown to love (and hate) — and even higher stakes. (And did we mention the excerpt ends with a cliffhanger that left sweaty-palmed, anxiety-ridden, and desperate for more?!) Clearly, we weren’t the only ones totally losing it over the reveal. We’ve rounded up some Emberlings who, just like us, could simply not keep their cool.


We agree — the wait is practically unbearable. 😩

June is only like two months away but it feels like an eternity. (Also thanks for the spoiler alert! But for those of you who haven’t read the rest of the series?! What are you waiting for?!)

We understand the temptation to sell off organs for literally anything Sabaa writes. (But we don’t recommend it.)

Same, tbh. 😭😭😭


“Reviving” is the perfect word for this excerpt. Like it gave us just enough energy to keep going until June 12th…

We’re ready to feel all of our feelings. Bring it on, Reaper. 😢😡😍😮

You know an excerpt is good when re-reads are planned before the book even comes out. 

Good to know we’re not the only ones going absolutely crazy. How are we supposed to wait?!?

This is basically our motto for 2018. 💃💃💃

Our favorite line too. 💁

Fact: You will not be able to put down Sabaa Tahir’s Ember in the Ashes saga. 📚
