ARC Giveaway: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir!!



Synopsis:
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.

  2. Loyal as girls can't be so mean to each other and backstab a person in a second.

  3. A female character should be strong enough to stand up for herself and have high self-esteem and love herself. She shouldn't settle for less than she deserves.

  15. Intelligent, confident and strong. To me, the real strong characters are the ones so confident they’re not afraid of revealing their vulnerabilities.
    Thank you for the chance!

  16. I like characters who are kind. I cannot stand characters who are rude or mean without cause. Being witty and funny is extra icing on the cake, too!
