A new favourite
Today we are going to talk about a book I have heard so many good things about. I am talking about An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. Thankfully the rumors were true and now I cannot stop thinking about it.
I loved this book and I can't wait to read the next one. Fortunately it is already on my selves.
When Laia’s grandparents are brutally murdered and her brother arrested for treason by the empire, the only people she has left to turn to are the rebels.
But in exchange for their help in saving her brother, they demand that Laia spy on the ruthless Commandant of Blackcliff, the Empire’s greatest military academy. Should she fail it’s more than her brother’s freedom at risk . . . Laia’s very life is at stake.
There, she meets Elias, the academy’s finest soldier. But Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined – and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.
I loved the way Sabaa Tahir wrote the story and the characters. It's like you were there with them. It is fast-paced, action packed from the beginning and with many twists.
Elias is my favourite. He is a warrior but at the same time thoughtful and caring. Laia is also a favourite of mine. She starts as weak and vulnerable but her goal to save her brother makes her fierce and determined. For me all the characters throughout the book are very well developed.
There are a lot more things (secrets, betrayals etc.) to be revealed in the future for all the characters and I cannot wait.
