This book is my absolute favourite! I started this book in 2017 and I haven't looked back since. I read it every three months because honestly, there's always something new to learn. An Ember in the Ashes is actually a quartet, with the last of the book series to be released in December, 2020.
All 17 year old Laia wants to do is rescue her older brother Darius from the Martials Empire. Meanwhile, Elias Veturius questions his supposed destiny to be leader in the great Empire. The book entails the journey of Laia, Elias as they deal with wars and magical creatures in the shadow of the looming figure of the Empire. This book is perfect for lovers of YA fantasy!
