An Ember in the Ashes

By: Sabaa Tahir

Favorite book series! It has everything I look for in a book: romance, adventure, and well-developed characters. Tahir writes the book in such a way that I feel that I’m there with Elias or Laia and feeling and experiencing what they are. It takes you through the journey of fighting for what’s right and fighting for what you love. I absolutely love this book and the series.
