review A Torch Against the Night

A Torch Against the Night

O is the key to the Scholars’ survival And Elias is determined to help Laia succeed even if it means giving up his last chance at freedomBut dark forces human and otherworldly work against Laia and Elias The pair must fight every step of the way to outsmart their enemies the bloodthirsty Emperor Marcus the merciless Com 55 stars I want to cry How do you understand that the book you just finished reading is a good book Which is worth 5 whole stars and maybe even I ll tell you my opinion you should feel it You have to feel the characters go through the experience they are going through You have to feel that you are experiencing what is going on in the book with the charactersIt s a very great connection to a book and it doesn t happen with most books Usually you just read the book from your point of view as a reader It s hard for you to connect with the characters And if you did connect with a particular character that doesn t mean you necessarily feel and become the characterIf you don t understand what the hell I m talking about because I m a completely complicated person who can t explain herself I ll explain nowFrom the first book I connected with EliasYes yes Elias Not Laia I know many of you have mostly connected to Laia I don t but I ll go into that laterMe and Elias are alike I will not begin to explain why because it ll be long but our personality is similarThroughout the first book the moment I was sucked into the plot I could put myself in the position of Elias I experienced the emotions with him I experienced the failures with him It was amazing It doesn t happen to me with characters usually so it s a delightful feeling in my opinion It s funAs soon as I started reading the current book I was worried that this connection would pass It happened to me before that I became very attached to a certain character but in the next book shehe changed a bit and the connection broke off So it didn t happen in this book I could still feel Elias Experience the world he s in But thank God this connection isn t physical is it It could ve been sucks those who don t know what I m talking about sorry don t do spoilersSo in summary Elias is a freaking kingNow let s talk about LaiaLike I said before I m not a big fan of Laia And to be honest I liked her even in the first book In the current book she was a little far from me Don t get me wrong she s a good character But I guess it s because of my amazing connection to Elias and the fact that Tahir added Helene s point of viewOh Helene We will talk about her I have many things to say about herIn the first book she confused me Big Time In one episode I thought she was nice in another I thought she was annoying in another I said to myself Oh What a badass And in another chapter I thought to myself What the hell So yeah I couldn t even form an opinion about her Which is why I am so happy that Tahir decided to add her point of viewFrom the first episode which was told from Helene s point of view I could begin to piece together the puzzle pieces of her character I could finally understand her accept her and then love herAnd yes I might surprise you again but I love Helene than Laia And like I said that s probably the reason for my distancing from Laia s character tooIs it just me or is this review very confused You see it took me 4 days to write it I don t know I feel like I m confusing everything maybe it s just me but I always find it hard to explain myself when I talk about something so goodSo characters characters charactersI have to take a few lines and write about Tas this sweet strong boy I loved so much And Darin who I finally got to know Although that s obviously not enough and I must pick up the third book And Helene s amazing family And IZZI oh IZZIAnd Keenan who I love so much Really even after this book after all the craziness that was discovered I still really loved Keenan s characterAnd you can t forget Harper of course He was so intrigued to me His character was so intriguing I felt like I was slowly sipping from the bottle and I hadn t even reached half of it I really liked him and I look forward to getting to know him better in the next bookSo after talking about the characters I ll talk about the plotSabaa Thair knows how to write a good book She knows how to keep the reader in suspense and make him turn a page and keep readingIt s amazing how you always stay thirsty for how you can t put the book out of your hands How you keep expecting something and still enjoy it when you receive itI m not sure I ll be able to get opinions into this review because I m starting to feel that my excited brain is starting to confuse everything again So I ll stop hereExcuse me if you read this shit called review and I hope you enjoyed this book as
