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.

Description:

“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.”

                                                  About Sabaa:

Sabaa Tahir grew up in California’s Mojave Desert at her family’s 18-room
motel. There, she spent her time devouring fantasy novels, raiding her
brother’s comic book stash and playing guitar badly. She began writing “An
Ember in the Ashes” while working nights as a newspaper editor. She likes
thunderous indie rock, garish socks and all things nerd. Sabaa currently
lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her family.

Alright, now that you know what this book is about, Sabaa wanted us blitz bloggers to share a letter with you all.

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

One thought on “Release Day Blitz: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

  1. I was so excited yesterday because Sabaa’s book came in the mail early! I’m about halfway through “An Ember in the Ashes,” and I really like it! Sabaa’s a fantastic writer and her book is definitely a must read! “An Ember in the Ashes” has a well-developed and dynamic world (albeit ruthless), and the characters are all very interesting. It feels like a mixture of “A Voice in the Wind” by Francine Rivers, and at times, I can see hints of Marie Rutkoski in there concerning the emperor and the wars the Martials initiated to get the Scholars’ territory. Basically what I’m saying is that I like this book. A lot.

    P.S. I would love it if you all would give Sabaa Tahir some comment love on her book’s birthday!
