An Ember In The Ashes By Sabaa Tahir Book Review

This was an amazing book.

We follow tow characters, Elias and laia. Elias is a mask but he wants to be free, because being a mask means you have very strict rules to follow and if you don’t you get punished badly. He hates everything that the mask stand for, but he can’t let anyone know what he thinks of feels.

One day he decided to try and escape but his destiny pulls him in another direction.

Laia is forced to flee from her home when mass raid happens. Sadly her brother gets captured but she managed to escape. She will do anything to get her brother back so she decides to join the resistance. Her first assignment is to become a slave to the commander so she can get an inside job. The commander turns out to be Elias mother.

We follow both of them on their journeys to get what they want. We also see how their journeys intwine and they become closer to one another.

The ending was a huge shock for me, i never saw it coming, but i was so happy with how the ending was.

This book was gripping and i could not put it down.

I really connected with the main characters and hated others.

The book flowed nicely and it was never once boring.

I can’t wait to get the next book to read so i can see what happens next.

I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars on goodreads. I highly recommend this book.

I hope you enjoyed this review, if you did please leave a like. What was the last book you read? Let me know in the comments and i will see you in my next blog post.
