An Ember in Ashes follows two characters from opposing ends of the social spectrum—Laia, a Scholar slave, and Elias, a Martial soldier in training—both striving for freedom from the evil Empire. From the beginning, Laia and Elias's lives are set on a thrilling collision course. The story moves as swift as a brush fire, alternating between the two main character's points of view, and there's barely a dull moment. It has everything a YA fan can want and more. A deadly tournament. Forbidden love. Magic. An evil, sadist commandant. And beautiful prose that lifts the novel above most books of its ilk. But where the book really sizzles is in its setting. Unlike many other epic fantasies that take place in pseudo Western or Northern European worlds, An Ember in Ashes is a mashup of ancient Rome and Persian cultures. It's a welcome change. Sabaa Tahir has built an intriguing and unique world that readers will want to explore further. An Ember in Ashes is a brutal, lyrical, heart-rending, page-turning epic that's sure to sate any YA fan's appetite—though the cliffhanger ending may have readers hungry for more. And we're sure they'll get it!
Aral Kingslayer must avenge the death of his goddess in order to save himself from being lost forever.
