An Ember in the Ashes - Sabaa Tahir

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 turn out that way. I am still not sure on how I feel about Helena. I don't hate her but so far I really don't have any feelings about her. I know I can't stand Marcus or Keegan at all. 

I loved the book so much that I started reading A Torch against the night now. When I had two other books that I had planned ahead of this one. Definitely one of my favorite reads this year

Awesome book so far, but very violent
An Ember in the Ashes - Sabaa Tahir

I am really enjoying this book, but wow is it a pretty violent and very brutal storyline. I really love  Elias so much and I feel so sad for him because of what a awful and violent mother he has. I also really love Laia and feel sorry for her because of everything that has happened to her in her young life. Can't wait to see how this book ends. I have book 2 and plan to read it sometime this month

 But after this one, I have at least 1 or maybe even 2 books that is ahead of the next book. And I already preordered the 3rd book as well!!!!

April wrap-up
The Illumination of Ursula Flight - Anna-Marie Crowhurst
Ashes of London - Andrew Taylor
Paris: The Novel - Edward Rutherfurd

Wow, the month is nearly over already!

 

I've managed to finish 3 books. One more than last month anyway. There seems to be a theme here, I do love Historical Fiction but ALL of them?!

 

I blame Netgalley. I still have one more Historical on my current reads but there is some other stuff too. The Historicals tend to be in the 400 page range so taking me a little longer than some other books might.

 

All of the above books were 4-5 stars so worth taking the time for them!

 

Oh and I've been working through my samples again too. Trying to read 2 a day, though sometimes I collect them faster than that!

The Ashes of London
Ashes of London - Andrew Taylor

by Andrew Taylor

 

The Ashes of London is set against the Great London Fire of 1666. There are two stories intertwined. A first person narrative from James Marwood, son of a disgraced printer, who is tasked to track down the killer of a mummified corpse found in St Paul's after it has burned down, alternating with a third person account of Cat, an heiress whose father is in exile for treason who faces many of the hardships that women had to deal with in that era, rich or poor.

 

Cat is a strong character and intelligent. She has an aptitude for architecture that the role of women would usually squelch, but through a series of mostly unfortunate circumstances, she finds herself in a position to develop.

 

The changing perspectives actually work very well. There is a healthy dose of political intrigue and an element of mystery to be solved. The book held my attention and the last few chapters got into some tense action that had me glued to the pages. I'm glad I've got the sequel waiting for me because this was definitely one of my best reads this year!
