An Ember in the Ashes 01

Book 1

(4)
'Tahir spins a captivating, heart-pounding fantasy' Us Weekly Read the explosive New York Times bestselling debut that's captivated readers worldwide. Set to be a major motion picture, An Ember in the Ashes is the book everyone is talking about. What if you were the spark that could ignite a revolution? For years Laia has lived in fear. Fear of the Empire, fear of the Martials, fear of truly living at all. Born as a Scholar, she's never had much of a choice. For Elias it's the opposite. He has seen too much on his path to becoming a Mask, one of the Empire's elite soldiers. With the Masks' help the Empire has conquered a continent and enslaved thousands of Scholars, all in the name of power. When Laia's brother is taken she must force herself to help the Resistance, the only people who have a chance of saving him. She must spy on the Commandant, ruthless overseer of Blackcliff Academy. Blackcliff is the training ground for Masks and the very place that Elias is planning to escape. If he succeeds, he will be named deserter. If found, the punishment will be death. But once Laia and Elias meet, they find that their destinies are intertwined and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire. In the ashes of a broken world one person can make a difference. One voice in the dark can be heard. The price of freedom is always high and this time that price might demand everything, even life itself.

This book is gripping from the first page onwards, it was hard for me to lay it down! I absolutely love the characters and the place where the story is set. The connecting narratives between both Elias and Laia depicts topics such as tyranny, abusiveness, suffering, redemption, betrayal and the search for freedom. I enjoyed reading "AN EMBER IN THE ASHES" also due to the political intrigues and the supernatural forces. All I can say is go buy this book, read it and thank me later ;)

Fight for Freedom

This is a gripping tale of an oppressed people and their fight to overthrow their usurpers. We have a two perspective narration, and there are two narrators for this audio book. Both Fiona Hardingham and Steve West are doing a great job! The topic reminded me of another favourite... This is a gripping tale of an oppressed people and their fight to overthrow their usurpers. We have a two perspective narration, and there are two narrators for this audio book. Both Fiona Hardingham and Steve West are doing a great job! The topic reminded me of another favourite of mine, namely the Red Rising series. I thought it was a funny coincidence that both series have a Roman theme going: names, legionaries, etc. Then again, the old Romans were a martial people who conquered lots of the European peoples of their time, so the theme probably suggests itself. It took me only 1.5 days to listen to the whole story, I didn't manage to put it down (i.e. switch it off). I've bought and downloaded the sequel now. As usual, I subtracted a star because the story isn't really finished. OK, so there is no big cliffhanger, but there are lots of loose ends, and as a stand-alone, this book would have been unsatisfying. Still, it's a great story that drew me right in and at the ending spat me out wanting more.
