QuaranTEEN Book Review by Eryn

ember in the ashes

The book An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir is a wonderful read!

It has a very unique story line and very interesting imaginary lands. Thanks to Sabaa’s amazing illustrations you can see where the story takes place and what the protagonist is seeing. You can imagine the layout of under ground secret tunnels, a school built on violence and cities full of rebels.

This book has horror, adventure, romance, and mystery all mixed up in one fantasy realm where monsters lurk around every corner taking on different forms and appearance were Laia (a free-born Scholar) has to work her way through a maze of finding herself, saving her brother, and figuring out who to trust in a world that is made on darkness and lies.

I would recommend this book to teens who want to shake up their reading list because it puts the reader in a totally new and unexpected experience.
