Ember In The Ashes Summary
Should anyone have any objections to this holy union, speak now or forever hold your peace (seriously- tell me now- I have plenty of time, here)! Also quick props to one of my favorite canva graphs ever that only took like 5 minutes and it is simple but the colors just look great and I didn’t do anything…. except get it right the first time and not take hours… but I just think it looks amazing. And I’m sure it’ll never happen again, and that is all.
Summary: Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free.
Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear. It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do.
But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy. There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.
