    Beschreibung von Audible

    Editors Select, April 2015 - Violence and secrecy allow for a startling and gripping start to Sabaa Tahir's debut novel 

    An Ember in the Ashes. Tahir's YA epic fantasy tale has been receiving a lot of incredible advance praise from some pretty impressive authors (such as Brandon Sanderson), I just had to see if it lived up to the hype. I was not disappointed. Tahir's original world-building matches the talent of seasoned authors, and the higher-stakes Romeo and Juliet narrative at the core of her book is heart-wrenching and captivating. Told from the alternating perspectives of Laia, an orphan on the run, and Elias, a soldier, 

    An Ember in the Ashes fills a void in the YA fantasy canon we didn't know we had. 

    --Katie, Audible Editor

    Inhaltsangabe

    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 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' 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.

    Amazing story!

    Oh man oh man! Long has it been since I've read a book that basically swallowed my life until the last page. what a great story! I love that the female lead is not the typical brave and already highly skilled protagonist, but that she has inner struggles and fears, just like anyone would. and the fact that every chapter switches between Laia and Elias really is brilliant. You never get bored of one character and are left wanting for more after every chapter. The performance and voices in this audiobook were also fantastic. Man I hope they turn this book(series) into a movie! As soon as this review is submitted I'm buying the second installment :) Off to new adventures!
