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.

Just have to say I just loved the book a whole lot. I have a favorite new character in Elais. I love how real he is and how much he wants to do the right thing even if he gets killed because of it. I like Laia and at the beginning I didn't think I would like her at all. I am so happy that it didn't ...

4.0 An Ember in the Ashes
It took me a lot to get into this book - I'd put it down and not really care about picking it back up for the first 1/3-1/2, which I think was due to a combination of the dual POV narrative and the dark and dystopian setting. However, when I did pick it up I'd get sucked into the story and by the en...

4.5 An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
4.5 stars. An enjoyable fantasy novel, easy reading. I preferred the warrior Elias to the somewhat gullible spy/slave Laia. Some great world-building, I could see this as a movie.“The field of battle is my temple. The swordpoint is my priest. The dance of death is my prayer. The killing blow is my r...
