Like the smallest ash, love has the potential to ignite.
An Ember in the Ashes
Sabaa Tahir makes a stunning writing debut with her first novel, An Ember in the Ashes. Set in a savage world where violence and pain are the primary currency, Sabaa intricately weaves the stories of two lives on complete ends of the power spectrum into an engrossing and compelling tale.
This book came to me on the recommendation of my teen daughter. She is a die hard YA reader and has very high expectations for books in that genre. This was a “Mom you have to read this!” book. She was right. Sabaa wastes no time in locking you in her world and dragging you through the pain and suffering of Laia and Elias. You become engrossed in the struggles they face with who they are supposed to be versus who in their hearts they want to be. As their lives intermingle their fates become entwined and ultimately dependent on the other for their survival. But will this spark they have for each other be enough…? I can’t wait to find out and will be one of the first to download book two in the series, A Torch Against the Night, to my Kindle August 30, 2016.
As you can guess I highly recommend this book! Great writing, great story, and a great reminder of the power of love and the human spirit to overcome great adversity.
