Waiting on Wednesday (71): An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Publicado por Paulina J. en 21:30

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spinethat spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week is:

Title: An Ember in the Ashes
Series: Standalone
Author:Sabaa Tahir 
Date Published: April 28th 2015
Publisher: Razorbill

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.
 



Why I'm waiting:

  • I'm trying to branch out from all the dystopian novels I tend to read and this book seems to be a good choice
  • New authors are always welcome in my shelves, you can never guess if this newbie will become a personal favorite:)
