“Sabaa Tahir spins a captivating, heart-pounding fantasy.”— US Weekly

A “deft, polished debut” (Publishers Weekly, starred review), Sabaa Tahir‘s AN EMBER IN THE ASHES is a thought-provoking, heart-wrenching and pulse-pounding read. Set in a rich, high-fantasy world with echoes of ancient Rome, it tells the story of a slave fighting for her family and a young soldier fighting for his freedom.

Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free.

Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear.

It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do.

But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy.

There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. 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.

****Coman Iasmina (Iasmy/Elis Ntco fb)-Admin. site/Editor coordonator/PR/Admin. grup Fb-Literatura pe tocuri**** Esenţele tari se ţin în sticluţe mici! Orientată spre prezent, dar şi viitor, cu picioarele pe pământ, dar şi idealistă. Optimistă până la extrem. Îmi place să dezvolt o idee prin intermediul discuţiilor, văd timpul ca pe o resursă finită şi iau în serios termenele limită. Pasionată de cărţi, muzică şi călătorii, ador stilul romance (contemporan, historical) thriller, istoric romanţat, YA, şi în general cărţile scrise bine. Mai nou, începe să îmi placă stilul fantasy, deşi nu am crezut că mă poate "prinde". Învăluită în mister, iubitoare de ciocolată cu piper. Îmi plac provocările! Şi aşa cum spune Octavian Paler: "Pasiunea n-are nevoie de motivări, ea nu cere neapărat să fie înţeleasă şi explicabilă, dimpotrivă, începe acolo unde nu mai e nimic de explicat, sfârşind abia când simte din nou nevoia de lămuriri." Vă aşteptăm alaturi de noi!
