My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Being a sequel, I can’t say much without spoilers but a Torch Against the Night is just as good as its predecessor. We learn more about the djinn and even another world. I continue to be riveted and wish the third book was written already. I’ve grown to love Laia, Elias and Helene over the course of the two novels and feel for them during their trials/struggles. I was very surprised by some of the things that happened in the book, which was pleasing because that meant it wasn’t formulaic and obvious. Highly recommended, but read the first novel in the series before you begin this one.
