An Ember in the Ashes

Reading Now...

An Ember in the Ashes
Sabaa Tahir
Published: April 28th, 2015
Genres: YA, Fantasy, Dystopian

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.
Then, in a flash of silver, Helene's holding one knife to Marcus's neck and the other to his groin.
"Let go of my hair," she says. "Or I'll relieve you of your manhood."

I nod jerkily and realize that his eyes are not blue or green but a deep chestnut brown. You're noticing his eyes, Laia. Which means you're staring into them. Which means you need to stop.

So, What'cha think of my Teaser Tuesday Of AN EMBER IN THE ASHES?


SabaaT3Sabaa Tahir grew up in California’s Mojave Desert at her family’s 18-room motel. There, she spent her time devouring fantasy novels, raiding her brother’s comic book stash and playing guitar badly. She began writing An Ember in the Ashes while working nights as a newspaper editor. She likes thunderous indie rock, garish socks and all things nerd. Sabaa currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her family.

Look out for my review of AN EMBER IN THE ASHES coming soon!
