Release Day Blitz: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Hey, guys! Welcome back to my blog! I know that I have been a bit MIA lately but I've explained the reason to you all already and I'm sorry but I'm trying my best. Today, I am extremely excited to be participating in this release day blitz for An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. This novel sounds frickin' fantastic as it combines fantasy with war. Plus, it's not that long and it is a standalone so not too much commitment. I have yet to read this one (I'm horrible) but I really want to and cannot wait to get my hands on it. Hope you enjoy this post and until my next one, I love you guys to...infinity and beyond!

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.


A Letter from Sabaa Tahir
Dear Readers,
Today, my “baby” AN EMBER IN THE ASHES is finally out in the world! From inception to pub
date, this journey took eight years. And what a journey it was: writing,
rewriting, revising, editing, querying, submitting; Meeting other debuts,
bloggers, booksellers and librarians, and hearing their thoughts on EMBER.

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the radness.
And now, the book is here! I am so excited to see it in the hands of readers. I hope you
enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. To celebrate release day, I’m
giving away two signed, first-edition hardcovers of the book. Details below!

All my best,
Sabaa
