Waiting On Wednesday #1

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine that spotlights an upcoming release that you are anticipating.
This week, I’m most anticipating An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir.  This book is one of my most anticipated books of 2015.  The release date is getting really close now, and I can’t wait to read it!

An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir  
Publish Date: April 28th, 2015              
Genres: Fantasy

What is it about?

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.

Why am I waiting for An Ember In The Ashes?
This sounds like such an amazing fantasy novel – and it’s her debut novel, too!  The setting sounds incredible – I’ve never read anything fantasy set in a “Rome-like world” and it sounds really unique!  Not to mention it also describes the world as “terrifyingly brutal”, which sounds like loads of fun.  I always really like stories where there are two separate narrators or main characters, and you get to see their lives and stories intertwine.   Laia and Elias will have to work together and I can’t wait to follow them on their adventure!
I can’t wait to read An Ember In The Ashes when it comes out on April 28th!
