An Ember in the Ashes (Large Print / Paperback)
Laia is a slave. Elias is a solider. Both yearn for freedom and have no reason to know or trust each other. But the machinations of the empire are more brutal than either can withstand on their own. This alternanting point-of-view story is utterly magical and incredibly well-written. The conclusion is forth coming and I can't wait.
Highly recommend for lovers of Marie Ruthkoski, Leigh Bardugo, and Illuminae. For ages 14+— Romy
