Waiting On Wednesday - 10/29/14

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The book I'm waiting for this week is An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. I just happened to stumble upon it today though I'm also pretty sure I've seen it mentioned on twitter by other bloggers. But that's not what matters. What matters is that this book sounds fantastic and something I want to read sometime soon preferably, not that that will happen but here's to hoping that something could turn up! Seriously though, it sounds like it will be a really great book. Happy Reading!

Publication: April 28th, 2015
Summary: 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.
