Hey Guys, 
I hope everyone is having a great week so far?

An Ember in the Ashes An Ember in the Ashes

Set in a terrifyingly brutal Rome-like world, An Ember in the Ashes is an epic fantasy debut about an orphan fighting for her family and a soldier fighting for his freedom. It’s a story that’s literally burning to be told.

LAIA is a Scholar living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother is arrested for treason, Laia goes undercover as a slave at the empire’s greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel Scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution.

ELIAS is the academy’s finest soldier— and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias is considering deserting the military, but before he can, he’s ordered to participate in a ruthless contest to choose the next Martial emperor.

When Laia and Elias’s paths cross at the academy, they find that their destinies are more intertwined than either could have imagined and that their choices will change the future of the empire itself.

Vow your blood and body to the empire.

Keep your heart for yourself.

Ooh, you just don't know how excited I am for AN EMBER IN THE ASHES by Sabaa Tahir! When I seen the cover, I almost died. Then I read the synopsis, and I almost fainted from anticipation!! I just knew I had to read this, and that I was 99.9999% sure that I was going to absolutely LOVE IT!

I'm actually in the process of trading for it from someone. And
I'm really hoping the trade works out. Because I really, really, REALLY want to read this book wayyyyy before the release date in April 2015!

Here's to hoping! ;) 

What do you think of my WoW?

Will you be adding it to your TBR Reading Pile?
