An Ember in the Ashes - Sabaa Tahir

What would it be like to live under the rule of a military dictatorship that takes executive, legislative, and judicial powers for itself? Debut author Sabaa Tahir’s conjuration of a fantasy world that echoes the Roman Empire attempts to answer just that. Tahir splits her narrative between two points of view: that of Laia, a member of the oppressed Scholar class; and Elias, recently graduated into the totalitarian military force, and spins their opposing stories into a compelling depiction of the authoritarian society. Questions of fate, identity, and loyalty are explored in An Ember in the Ashes (Razorbill, $19.95). Ages 14-18. Sharat Buddhavarapu
