ABOUT THE TRILOGY
From the author: "The 10th anniversary editions of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy are in the world!!! (The US editions. UK editions still upcoming :) I'm always greedy for covers--new covers, new looks, new alphabets, new art--so it thrills me to get whole new sets of covers, and so, so beautiful! Writing this series occupied such a big part of my life, and it's just plain weird that it's been ten years now since the first book came out. WHAT? Though honestly, my actual daughter was a baby at the time and is now 11, so that's a good measure of the time!
I'm hopeful that with the new editions, a new slew of readers will discover them.
The artist is Jelena Kevic Djurdjevic, and the work is simply stunning--and so different from anything else I've seen on the shelves! Not that I imagined, at the time, that we wouldn't get to actually see it on shelves, or browse in bookstores and libraries, but only online. Sigggghhhhhh. I really really miss bookstores and libraries. But I'm grateful for all the resources we have to discover, acquire, and consume content in these shut-in times!"

ABOUT THE MODERATOR'S BOOK
Prepare for the jaw-dropping finale of Sabaa Tahir's beloved New York Times bestselling An Ember in the Ashes fantasy series, and discover: Who will survive the storm?
Picking up just a few months after A Reaper at the Gates left off... 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. By 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.
